Might & Magic

2015
Cover:Might & Magic

It took us some time to get our second album Might & Magic out there – we used the time to polish our songwriting abilities, play some live shows and prepared for the recordings. We wanted to make a huge jump from our first record to this, and we think we succeeded. It’s a nice mixture of German-styled Speed and English double lead madness.

Might & Magic

 

  • Words of Wisdom

Spoken by Peter “Pit Nawotka”, a small security notice in the beginning.

  • Tomb of the Stygian King

A really cool song and perfect intro as it mixes fast and epic parts together, a perfect blend of the album.

  • Fire!

Why does he kill? No idea! He’s insane! A lot of Metal Inquisitor in this song.

  • Vanguard of Doom

Set in the same continuity as Black Magic Spells, Vanguard of Doom tells the story of satanic hordes invading the earth.

  • Watch the Skies

Alien Invasion.. bzzt.. bzzt.. bzzt…

  • Spirit Archer

One of the first songs we finished for the new record. This took me some time to like, but the more we played it, the more I liked it. It’s perfectly designed for Sir Serpent’s voice.

  • Wut im Bauch

Our tribute to the GDR metal bands such as Formel 1, Biest, MCB, etc.

  • Born to play on 10

Fuck the mainstream with their showy effects, nothing sounds true anymore. We want to fuck ’em all with this song.

  • Cult of the Snake

I would call this the pinnacle of our creation so far – a true Epic in the realms of Manowar and Cirith Ungol.

Vom klassischen Banger bis hin zum schnellen Brecher wird die ganze Palette des traditionellen Stahls abgedeckt, und man beweist immer wieder das Gespür für tolle Melodien und eingängiges Songwriting. […] Bitte mehr davon!

wurde. Das Resultat klingt, als würden Saxon und Rage einen trinken gehen und an der Bar Tokyo Blade und Metal Inquisitor treffen. Ein standesgemäßesCover rundet eine saubere Sache für Traditionsmetaller ab […].
Stefan Glas, Rock Hard #344, 7,5/10

So klingt der German Heavy Metal Underground, typisch deutsch, wer es mag, wird sich verlieben, denn IRON KOBRA beißen besser als zuvor.

Siebenunddreißig Minuten zum Abfeiern werden hier geliefert, eine Aufforderung an alle, die noch Bier im Kühli und in wenigen Minuten ihre Kumpels in Kutten herbeitelefoniert haben. Diese Scheibe sollte im Rudel bebangt werden!

IRON KOBRA müssen ab jetzt mit Metal Inquisitor zu den authentischsten und wertvollsten Echt Stahlkocher Bands in Deutschland gezählt werden!
