The name Black King Cobra might give the impression of venomous amps to 11 rock but the band, led by engaging front man Callum Moran are a groove rock outfit who put the emphasis firmly on the word groove plus a whole dose of funk and a prevalence for double-time, big crescendo of sound finishes. The infectious beat and hooky melody of “Wrack n’ Ruin” (which features on the band’s self titled 2 track EP) ticks all those musical boxes. With gigs at Nice N' Sleazy, WildFire Festival, The Hard Rock Cafe, O2 ABC Glasgow, Winter Storm Festival, Dreadnought Rock & a sold out headline show at King Tuts under their belt – along with their latest EP, "Law of Attraction". There are exciting prospects for the band ahead – a solidly grooved future for Black King Cobra.
“Some bands need a hype machine behind them to get noticed. The special ones don’t need the hype, the music does the talking. Black King Cobra’s music is both natural and fresh and as a band they have a humility that ensures ambition and ego don’t get in the way of the obvious and real pleasure they get from just creating and sharing great music.
There's a sense of renaissance to the underlying spirit of Black King Cobra - perhaps starting a band as a 'last chance saloon' actually can work in a band's favour. Their music is alive, you feel they are really enjoying every milestone and from what I have experienced with radio, reaction to their music is effortless, positive and pretty immediate.
… but the essence to take from this band is the music is visceral and alive, as great rock and roll should be. Clearly a band to see live, Black King Cobra remind us that rock music above anything else should be fun.” - Guy Bellamy (Great Music Stories/Guy Bellamy’s Rock Show)
