After an astounding 4+ decades of non-stop rockin, both collectively and individually, you might expect the members of King Kobra to settle into a nice, quiet soft rock groove. But with the release of the band’s seventh studio album earlier this year, the triumphant We Are Warriors, King Kobra founder Carmine Appice and longtime members Johnny Rod and Paul Shortino as well as recent inductees, Quiet Riot’s Carlos Cavazo and Dio’s Rowan Robertson, prove that all those years of road-tested, studio-honed musical experience can make for some of the most powerful and potent hard rock heard anywhere.
Indeed We Are Warriors is filled with the kind of face-melting guitar riffs and thunderous drums you’d expect to hear on an album from a much younger band. But these seasoned pros not only rock louder than most, they also rock harder.
Just check out the superb second track from Warriors, “Turn Up The Music,” an epic, fist-pumping ode to the glory of ear-splitting volume and a finely crafted metal song. The track might just be the album’s crowning jewel, its thesis statement, which is why the band is releasing a captivating new lyric video for the track as both a celebration of their new album and a commitment to their fans to never keep it down.
