C'est donc la fin pour Cobra Noir.  Une dernière soirée au Divan Orange pour finir les choses comme il se doit.

Cobra Noir will be playing its last show at the Divan Orange in September. Let's end things the proper way.  Be there with us.

Past news -

Proving that their debut was no fluke, Cobra Noir's sophomore effort, Barricades, is yet another hammer to the face, this time delivered with even more venom and malice. Just over 24 minutes of brooding hardcore that rages with ferocity, it would give a Norwegian black metal goon a case of fudge-laden Fruit Of The Looms. Barricades channels the ravenous aggression of almost-forgotten Canadian hardcore kings Union Of Uranus and the Black Hand, both bands who clearly had metal in their hardcore before the term "metalcore" held about as much weight as "I promise." Channelling these influences through the confrontational grit and fortitude of Discharge, the result is an endless barrage of bowel-rumbling chords pushed through overdriven amplification, a vocal style reminiscent of a sinner's froth-laden wailing as Satan plucks out his pubic hairs one by one and drums that border on incomprehensible while still providing the thrust necessary to make this behemoth blow the stainless steel out of your lobes.

Montreal 's heavy hitters Cobra Noir also release their mind-blower Barricades this week, on U.S. label Chainsaw Safety. Lovingly recorded at Hotel 2 Tango by the band and ex-Cursed member Radwan Moumneh, this is a brutal and punishing listen throughout the eight blasters here. Singer Alex Von Viper's caterwaul, recalling John Brannon of Negative Approach, is what really makes the hairs on the back of the neck stand at attention, but it's also the guitars that help steer the pounding past hardcore cliché. Cobra Noir's real reward is that they refuse to cave in under the weight of their own heaviosity, with great dynamic transitions and songwriting prowess in "The Arsonist" and the heavy epic "Mind Destroying." If you like the brutal innovation of early Converge mixed with the pounding of Wolverine Blues-era Entombed, you are going to be digging this.
