Matti Curious Definitely Top3 AOTY Album Contender for 2019 (together with Inter Arma and Cult of Luna). Instant classic!

Colin M. How have YotC gotten even better? Somehow they managed it. I love the almost soothing, sultry doom of the opener, the frantic punk energy of the title track, and the sinister, dreamlike "Demons." Favorite track: Demons.

Obstacle of Affliction My unawareness of this band has been utterly destroyed leaving me ashamed that I had not heard their previous works. This is, for me, a modern classic which I will return it often. Favorite track: Demons.

AbNormal Listening Habits Pre-Sales can be hit or miss at times. This will be a direct bullseye!

Update - Holy Shit this phenomenal. AOTY so far & 2019 is the Year of the Cobra.

Ed OCasey You’d think a band like this would carve a tiny niche out for itself: a two-piece, drums and bass, female-fronted, stoner doom outfit. But here comes Year of the Cobra again shouldering past the perceived limits of that corner. A stellar offering which probably won’t get the attention it easily deserves. May every year be the Year of the Cobra! Favorite track: The Divine.

Seattle stoner doom powerhouse Year Of The Cobra's second album "Ash And Dust" is sure to ultimately establish the duo - comprised of Amy Tung (bass/vocals) and Jon Barrysmith (drums) - as one of the genre's brightest stars, presenting a darker and more diverse sound than before with both psychedelic and post punk elements.

By now, Year Of The Cobra have found their very own niche, where lava-like riffs and pounding grooves melt with vocals of radiant grace and hooks of remarkable pop sensibility. Between all its excruciating heaviness, "Ash And Dust" reveals moments of light-hearted and angelic beauty. Captured into a larger-than-life production by legendary sound engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Bruce Dickinson), the album is a sonic experience that makes you want to dance into a flaming abyss.

"Ash And Dust" is available as CD Digipak and 180g LP (black or silver vinyl).
