Black Cobra -- Kansas City, MO -- July 2nd, 2012

Black Cobra is heavy. That's all you really need to know. In front of a crowd that maxed out at about 75 (hey, it was a lot more than the last time I saw them), they absolutely destroyed. They rarely stopped playing, segueing into each song and only talked to the crowd about three times. But they played a ton of songs. The set I have is out of order but I'm almost positive they played those songs, plus maybe another 4 or 5. One guitarist had the heaviness and crunch of a full-fledged sludge band. It was a riff-filled night of doom. My neck is still sore from headbanging!

(Out of order + missing another 3-4 songs.)
Avalanche
Somnae Tenebrae
Corrosion Fields
Beyond
Abyss
Obliteration
Negative Reversal
Catalyst
Chronosphere
Storm Shadow
Five Daggers
Red Tide
Dragon & Phoenix

Hardcore duders Gaza opened for Black Cobra and they were a lot better than the first time I saw them. They sound a lot more like Converge now, which is definitely not a bad thing. They're also a very political band, but one that makes you so pissed off that you want to do something. They are still as chaotic and dissonant as ever, though. Good stuff.

There were two local bands opening. Tycho Brahe opened the show and they were kind of fun. I'd say they're a bit like a proggy (sorta) grind 'n' roll band, if that makes any sense. Definitely wanna see them again. Second band was Canyons who are usually really good, but their vocalist had lost his voice halfway through there set. That really sucks, because I know how great these guys are live.

Black Cobra: 9/10
Gaza: 8/10
Canyons: 6/10
Tycho Brahe: 7.5/10

I recently just saw Black Cobra and Gaza w/ Torche opening for C.O.C. and every band was HEAVY AS SHIT!!! I was pretty impressed with the lineup. Glad to see Gaza was playing this bill as well, they did some new songs from the forthcoming album. I had never heard Black Cobra before the show but will be checking them out if they come again.

I'd love to have seen this tour. Black Cobra were fucking awesome when I saw them a few years ago on tour with Bison BC, Priestess and High on Fire (still one of the best gigs I've ever been to, but Matt Pike proved that night that his current stint in rehab is, sadly, long overdue). Invernal was the best album of their career so far, so I'm glad to hear they're playing a ton of songs from it. That sounds like a great set. "Chronosphere" is a fucking beast of a song...especially live. So good.
