Definitely some sexiness in the band, physically. Unfortunately the terrible vocals, weak production and even weaker song writing is a bit of a turn off. :(

Annoys me when bands do this. Promote a album/EP release then announce something like this a week later. They knew this was coming and kept quiet to make sure they got more sales.


From FB

With a very heavy heart we want to announce that Alexx Panza will be parting ways with COBRA SPELL. You may already saw it coming, since we have been performing with a different singer (Kristina Vega) on the latest shows. Alexx is an incredibly talented singer and a fantastic friend to us, and we love him terribly! He has been there since the beginning. Since COBRA SPELL recently became the main priority for the majority of the band, and Alexx can not commit to the current needs of the band, it is the best decision for both parties to split ways. We thank Alexx deeply for the amazing work he delivered in the band, being part of our 2 EP’s ‘Love Venom’ & ‘Anthems Of The Night’, and for being an awesome as hell falsetto singing maniac, delivering the best of vocal melodies!! 🔥⚡️
Alexx states; "Unfortunately, due to force majeure I can't continue being Cobra Spell singer.
I can't escape the fact that a day only has 24h and a week 7 days only, and having a daily job and being in two other bands doesn't leave me enough time that a band like Cobra Spell, with a tight schedule ahead, would deserve. I wish the best of luck to my mates in the Cobra Spell camp and to their new talented singer Kris.
Thanking all of you who supported me so far, I invite you to keep following me with my other bands "Jack Starr's Burning Starr", and my main band "HITTEN", where I'll keep channeling all my efforts to deliver you the best Hard'n'Heavy your fine ears deserves. And don't forget to ROCK UNTIL YOU DROP!"
It might seem clear already who will be our new singer, but we will make a separate special post for her! 🤩❤️🤘🔥
We all have huge dreams and aspirations therefor we need to stabilise the line-up with like-minded musicians and this is just for the very best! 🐍
Alexx will play his last show with us at Headbangers Open Air on the 27/07! ⚡️

Starting to sound like Sonia is a bit of a tinpot dictator:

From the bands FB page:

We announce that we are parting ways with rhythm guitarist Esmée van Sinderen, and - mutually agreed with him - part ways with drummer Léonard Cakolli.
This decision was taken due to personal indifferences. Their vision does not align to the band’s and the speed rate that the band is evolving. Being part of a band that just started to grow very fast requires a certain amount of effort, time and sacrifice that not everyone can offer/give with their own priorities and job. Therefor we are obliged to take this decision for the well-being and workflow of the band.
We wish them the best in the personal projects and future endeavours and thank them deeply for being part of our epic journey so far! 🔥
🎶Very big opportunities are coming into our path, and this means COBRA SPELL needs to have a a strong and stable line-up for what is coming. As we mentioned, COBRA SPELL has just started taking off, and all of us in the band are giving 110% of our energy and input to bring this band to the next level. We all share this musical dream and we want to reach it all together. Therefor we are more than ready to bring stability in the band and find 2 new sisters that want to be part of our rocking crew! We are currently looking for a female rhythm guitarist and drummer that share the same passion and mentality to make it far. Are you the one?! Contact us here: cobraspell@gmail.com
**Our future activities and plans will not be affected and all the shows and appointments schedule will still run as announced:
We will be having the talented Anna Voloshyna as stand-in guitarist for the coming shows! Thank you so much, girl! 🤘❤️
Léonard will be on the road with us for the coming tour dates, this will be his last shows — so come to the show and let’s give a rocking farewell to Léo!💪
From Esmee's Instagram:
In the past few days I have received A LOT of messages from you asking why did I leave Cobra Spell. Well, the first thing I want to be very clear about is that I didn’t leave the band. I’ve been kicked out of it. I got blocked on every Cobra Spell’s social medias. That’s why I couldn’t tell my own story. So I will write it down here.

I live for music. I changed my whole life for it and gave everything to play in this band. We all did. To make Sonia’s dream come true. Everyone was working for her without getting any in return. I know that starting a band is really hard, and you should all do it together. But this also means writing the music together, taking decisions together… which we never did. I couldn’t choose the clothes I wanted to wear on stage, or the guitar shape I wanted to shred. It was all chosen by someone else. So at the end we were all session musicians which is fine, but we all worked for free. I really hate to talk about money, but if I’m not able to pay my rent at home because I’m working for free to make someone else's dream a reality, it is going too far for me.

I know these are some very harsh words, but the truth is sometimes very tough. And I am a very honest person. I just wanted to make these points clear, since the words on the Cobra Spell page are not mine. Music, cars and guitars will always be a very big part of my life. I loved playing in Cobra Spell, but it’s not healthy to be treated like this. I won’t share all of the details, I think it’s clear enough after 3 members left the band in one month.

I wish them best of luck.

    • Growing up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere, there was no concert scene, and only classical music was permitted to be played in my house, so it wasn't until I left for college in 1984 that I had an opportunity to see any acts... but that first year was a good one. Over that Thanksgiving break I stayed with a guy in Michigan where I got to see Armored Saint and Whitesnake opening for Quiet Riot (RIP Kevin Dubrow). The following summer back in PA I went to what is to date the biggest concert event I've ever attended: Live Aid at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Physically, the most miserable concert experience ever, as it was almost 100 degrees and I got dehydrated and sunburned like a mofo. That was the first time I ever saw huge video screens (where they played the acts performing at Wembley Stadium in the UK). When I went back to college that fall semester, I saw Y&T opening for Motley Crue on the Theater of Pain tour at Richfield Colisseum in Cleveland. It's both a shame and a good thing that cellphones with cameras didn't exist to capture the events... -Dan
    • wowser, great story. And to see Phil as well. Never saw Lizzy or Lynott solo  
    • Yeah the tracks on California Metal were amazing. Had no idea they recorded more.
    • Packaging is an absolute disgrace and I've posted that on the band's FB. Album is good...
    • Huge MEH from me. THIS is the BEST song you could find to relaunch a brand?
    • Phil Lynott solo show in The Rialto Londonderry 24th June 1982...I was 9...my big sister took me(she was 16)...it was only £4 a ticket...still have the stub...this was a big thing in more ways than one because it was during the troubles  and this was a daily thing and my parents hated us going to the city in case a bombing happened  
    • Wow, missed this thread. Rest In Peace.
    • And another one, also on Roxx Records. Album released this year, with unreleased recordings from 1986/1987. Again, sounds quite nice indeed- https://roxxrecords.com/products/judea-out-of-the-dark-the-lost-sessions-2022-cd Roxx Records is very excited to be bringing you the long lost sessions from Judea. The year was 1988 and Pakaderm Records was one of the hottest labels in Christian rock and metal at the time, and this amazing new band would be invited to record and showcase their talents. Hot on the heels of the very first California Metal compilation, that featured a whose who in Christian metal at the time, the label was ready to release the second installment, California Metal 2! Much like it’s predecessor, California Metal 2 would feature a host of Who’s Who in the Christian rock world at the time. Bands like Mastedon and Recon we’re all on the Christian music charts and featured on this now classic compilation. But also featured on here with two songs was a pretty unknown band at the time named Judea. California Metal 2 featured two of four tracks recorded at Pakaderm, including ‘Knock’ and ‘Heart of Stone’. Most people would easily recognize the artists and songs on this comp, but it was Judea that people would go back and give that second listen and say ‘wow who are these guys?’ and the anticipation for more Judea music would begin! Alas that would never come to be, as the band would record one more song for Pakaderm and ultimately somewhat fade away into obscurity, until now! Roxx Records has worked with the band Judea and we have now fully resurrected all of the bands musical repertoire. We are very excited to be bringing you Judea ‘Out Of The Dark - The Lost Sessions’. This release starts off with four amazing tracks that were recorded during the original Pakaderm sessions. Included in this four track session you’ll hear the two songs that made it on to Cal Metal 2 and two more songs that have never been released. The next song would be one more from a later Pakaderm session the following year, again never released. Then we take you on a musical journey into some older demos and even some newer stuff from these classic hard rockers. And we end with the original two final cuts from that amazing Pakaderm compilation California Metal 2. Featuring an amazing new album cover design courtesy of Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal. And another stellar remaster from Rob Colwell at Bombworks sound. This one will truly be a collectors item. So get ready as we prepare to give you a history lesson, and embark on another amazing journey into the archives of Christian metal.   TRACK LISTING:   Lost Pakaderm Sessions 1986 Heart Of Stone (Pakaderm session 1986) Knock (Pakaderm session 1986) Turning Away (Pakaderm session 1986) The Wanderer (Pakaderm session 1986) Final Pakaderm Session 1987 Over and Done (Pakaderm B room session 1987) Demo 1985 City of Gold (demo) Wanderer (demo) Demo 1991 Don’t Take Away (California session 1991) Demo 2006 Jaded Lost Demos or New Beginning?

    • https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/band.cgi?BandNum=10013 Anyone ever heard of these guys? This just popped up completely by randomness on youtube. This song, in particular- https://roxxrecords.com/products/latter-reign-live-for-the-day-roxx-2022-cd-remaster I've never heard of Roxx Records, I don't think, but here's the write up from their site about this album- Latter Reign was originally founded by Ryan Cane & July Cardenas. July in turn would call upon Doug Bear to play drums and the three started jamming at a small church in Ontario, California. As the band began to get their grooves down July reached out to Luis Cardenas to come and try out as lead vocalist for the band. They started practicing in Luis' garage right after that, but it was short lived as Ryan and Doug would leave the band before they ever really got it off the ground. Luis Cardenas and July Cardenas determined to continue as they knew the look and feel of this band had great potential and they would begin spinning their wheels to keep Latter Reign going. In order to take the band to the next level they continued putting those pieces together to truly make this a viable professional rock band. July would next find Brad Smith, while Luis would bring in Glenn Graff. Then lastly Brad would invite Dave Bonavich to play drums and finally all the pieces were together and Latter Reign was rockin’ on all cylinders. Latter Reign would become a very well-known Christian rock band as they started to play gigs all over Southern California. Latter Reign didn’t just play churches though they also went out and played clubs, bars and battle of the bands that were non-Christian events. Their philosophy was that most of the people that attend churches have already heard the word of God but the people at bars, clubs and secular events had not. Knowing this and taking it to heart, Latter Reign would go out and spread God’s word in places that many Christian Rock bands would not dare do to go. Latter Reign were also invited to many of the big Christian rock festivals and concerts in Southern California back at the height of their performing days, playing with bands like Fear Not, Barren Cross, Guardian, Bride, Switchfoot and many more. Latter Reign “Live For the Day” would be the first album that Latter Reign recorded. It sold well and got the band the recognition they needed at the time back in 1991 to keep the band going strong. Up next the band would record one final track with this incarnation of Latter Reign releasing the single ‘Desire’ which would be included on the Heavens Metal Vol1 compilation.  This would be the end of this chapter for Latter Reign, but was it really the end or just the beginning? To memorialize and capture this piece in the bands history Roxx Records will be releasing a Limited Edition CD pressing of the original seven track album ‘Live For The Day’ coupled with two additional bonus tracks being the track ‘Desire’ from the Heavens Metal Comp and an unplugged version of ‘Winds of Change’ Track Listing:  Prisoner Real Love Comin’ Back Winds of Change Don’t Close Your Heart Only Believe Live For The Day Winds of Change (Acoustic) [Bonus Track] Desire (Heavens Metal Comp) [Bonus Track] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyway, this sounds pretty good to me and I'd like to check it out. Sounds like the second album, 'II' was recorded not long after the above and also sounds like it could be a goer: At the beginning of this year we brought you a very special, long lost release that made its debut to great critical acclaim, and all the reviews were stellar! That artist was Latter Reign and we were very excited to be able to bring you the bands debut album “Live For The Day” remastered and restored with all new artwork and design. Well that release has done so well, it led us to be able to work with Latter Reign once again!   Now we bring you the bands second full length album, aptly titled “II”. “II” is a collection of songs that the band originally wrote and performed back in the day. These songs were just taking shape, and these brand-new songs were played live, but never officially released...until now. Latter Reign shared stages with many bands including Fear Not, Guardian, Tourniquet, Sin Dizzy, Barren Cross, Ransom and Broken Silence playing tracks from their debut release and these tracks you will hear right here from “II”. Many of the tracks were never finished completely alas they rekindled their creative juices to finish recording and releasing them. With the band back together, they managed to touch up, re-record and add to these tracks to get you what you will hear today on what is essentially a brand new album. If you want the whole story, you’ll have to order the new CD, as the whole story is detailed and all in there with this CD package! For now lets take a look at the first single, which is the self-titled track “Latter Reign” from the upcoming “Latter Reign II” album, and for this special video the band unearthed some previously unseen footage. Video: https://youtu.be/6Z4qqjJDX3o This beautiful limited edition CD package was remastered by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) the album cover, layout and design were done by Luke Easter (Tourniquet). This new album is officially arriving with a street date of July 29th, 2022   Track Listing: 1. Latter Reign 2. Desire 3. Dreams 4. Shine Your Light 5. Radio Paradise 6. Rotten Johnny 7. Crazy World 8. Day By Day 9. Hardened Heart 10. Won't Go Down 11. Why 12. Writings On The Wall
