|COBALT WAR METAL Limited Vinyl LP
This album will hit you like a thunder-bolt! Hailing from the United States, Cobalt, a two-member act, plays a very Australian brand of Black “war” Metal. There’s no bass in the album, only an unrelenting drum and a equally vigorous guitar. This is not really like any other band you have ever heard. It’s unique and that’s what made this album stand out. The same formula’s been used for all the songs in this album. To “make up” for that, the guitar-work and the drums are exceptionally good in this. The riffs themselves are an entirely different story altogether - they might sound a bit simple at times but they’re mostly very elaborate and well-thought out.
The main emphasis of this album is on the war music - it says with the instrument the same message that vocals would convey. Usually, when “unsung” metal bands come up with this kinda stuff, they’re praised all over the place. In either case, I’m absolutely certain that fans of Black Metal will love this album!
