Ruhrpod Rockers Episode 1. Kekse und Drachen

As some of you know, we recorded a new 7″ some weeks ago. It will feature two brand new songs, both sung in German – Kerker und Drachen and Schall und Rauch. As always, we sat down a lot while we were recording and profoundly talked philosophy and matters of utmost importance. Really, this is the best thing about being in an awesome band like Iron Kobra, you enjoy some quality time with other idiots. In the past 9 years, every hour long car drive, every sitting in a crammy, smelly backstage room was filled with the voices of the Vanguard of Doom (which is us, d’oh). In case you wonder which infinite wisdom you missed in the past decade, here a small selection …

  • A Jesus/Bible MMORPG. Really, this would have been awesome. We wanted to sell the idea to the pope so they could attract new fans.
  • Making a music video, but everything is made out of chocolate and sweets. This is really hard to explain, but imagine a drummer smashing the drums, but instead he’s drumming into a pot of pudding.
  • And, uh, a lot more! I promise!

So you see, I already forgot about most of it. That’s why we decided to start recording our pamphlets of philosophy in a podcast format. It’s in German, but you’ll have to deal with that. We recorded it while Cimmerian Conda was busy playing the drums for the record, so he’s missing. So enjoy the first episode of the Ruhrpod Rockers!

Cimmerian Conda joins Iron Kobra

Some might already have noticed that we had some changes behind the drums. So we now want to properly announce that Ringo Snake will no longer be a member of Iron Kobra. We want to thank him for 5 years of dedication and his great work on both our albums and the Avenger 7″. THANKS RINGO!
In his stead, CIMMERIAN CONDA, to some better known as Björn from Tyranos, Destroyer and Whipper, will take over. He already helped out at some of our recent gigs and will now become a full member.
With that, we hope that we can soon return to our old rehearsal room and studio and record some new tracks for you in 2017.
See you at Kuhzifest on January 2017 which will be our first show next year.

Taunus Metal Festival appearance cancelled

We are very sad and sorry to announce that we cannot play at Taunus Metal Festival this Saturday. As a member of the band suddenly got seriously ill, it’s not possible for us to enter the stage. We were looking forward to playing a lot, and hope we can somehow make up for it in the future.

Sir Serpent will be there anyway, as he will play with his band Whipper Saturday morning which you should not miss out. Steelpreacher will replace us, so dont worry, you will get your fair share of Heavy Metal Party!
