Release date: May 2nd 2020. Label: Self Released: Format: DD

PLANETS – Tracklisting



Kobra Fuzz


Aussie Psych Fuzz/Stoner Rockers – Kobrakai – new song Planets is a heavy new song that doesn’t really offer anything new to the scene but is still a great heavy-pounding song full of blistering riffs that Kobrakai are known for.

The song has an outlandish “Spaced Out” theme which Kobrakai use brilliantly well especially with the lyrics and top-notch vocals. The riffs are a mixture of Psychedelic Rock, Desert Rock, Fuzz Rock and Stoner Metal which are quite addictive in places. The song even manages to find the time to even play a more classic style of “Twin Guitar” grooves that Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden made famous back in the day.

I don’t know if the band have a new album or EP being planned in the future but this song is a great indicator on what to expect if something is planned.

The band released their last album III back in October 2018 and that was perhaps the best album from the band yet. So definitely check that album out if you want to know more about this great band. I never found the time to review it back then but I still listen to occasionally and can recommend it highly.

Though, back to Planets. This is another great song from Kobrakai and you can watch the excellent video they made for the song below:
