Prevail I and II – from 2017 and 2018 respectively – are both great albums, albums I still listen to quite the bit. The first one was also the one that I discovered Kobra And The Lotus with. The albums contained everything that I love about Metal. Well-written songs, striking and memorable melodies, hooks, good musicians and a stellar singer, heaviness, rawness and catchy choruses. The bands first three albums, however, was more underwhelming when I checked them out afterwards. Not bad but they left a bit too much to be desired for me. Let’s say they weren’t really there yet. When the band now releases their 6th record, big expectations follows it – and a hope for the big break, both from me and the band itself. The first spin of the record turned out a disappointment for me. Not a crappy record but nothing really stuck and I missed the immediate hooks of the two predecessors. However, every record needs a few spins before the final judgement.
