“Kerker & Drachen” 7″ up for Pre-Order!

It has been quote for a long time- but now, we strike back with full force! After Cimmerian Conda joined us on the drums last year, we’ve hid in the unholy Catacombs of Doom to write new evil spells for you – and evil they are!

We bring you two brandnew songs, sung in our mother language, German. This is a tribute to all the GDR Metal bands such as Biest, Formel 1 or MCB who had to sing in German –  we salute you! We already present you the first song (and title track), Kerker & Drachen, a song about, well, dungeons and dragons. The second song Schall & Rauch will be presented earler to the release date in April.

You can already pre-order it over at Dying Victims Productions along with some brand-new merchandise here! Enjoy!

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!
