Iron Kobra are a band from Germany that plays a very traditional form of heavy metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Might & Magic" which was released by Dying Victims Productions.
Spoken word parts start off the album and after the intro the music goes for a more traditional and old school style along with a great amount of melody being utilized and the vocals are all clean singing while some of the faster riffs bring in a touch of early speed metal along with a small amount of clean playing being and acoustic guitars utilized at times.
You can hear a lot of melody in the guitar riffing along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also remain true to an early 80's style of metal and the songs also bring in a great amount of NWOBHM influences and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks sound like they could off easily been recorded and released more than 30 years ago and there are also a couple of tracks that are long and epic in length.
Iron Kobra plays a very true and traditional style of heavy metal that is very dark, melodic and has a very vintage 82 era sound to it, the production sound s very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover biking, heavy metal, fantasy, mythology and occult themes.
In my opinion Iron Kobra are a very great sounding traditional metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tomb Of The Stygian King" "Spirit Archer" and "Cult Of The Snake". 8 out of 10.
