Year of the Cobra
Year of the Cobra
Since Year of the Cobra’s 2015 inception, Amy and Jon have proven that you don’t need a huge band to produce massive, infectious heaviness.

Recalling power-duos like Jucifer, Amy’s vocals and “Rig Of Doom” are doubly impressive as she wrings power chords and melodies from a 4-string Rickenbacker, all backed by Jon’s appropriately huge and cavernous drumming.

2016 saw extensive touring and the Billy Anderson-produced debut album In The Shadows Below on STB Records. More US and European festivals and touring commenced, with a new Magnetic Eye Records EP and Psycho Las Vegas appearance both slated for summer 2017.
Witch Mountain
Witch Mountain
It’s been a long three years since Witch Mountain’s fourth album Mobile of Angels was released. That was the band’s third disc for Profound Lore, and the last with vocalist Uta Plotkin, following an action-packed five year run of critically acclaimed albums, festival appearances, and tours that took the band around North America and Europe.

The musical partnership of Rob Wrong (guitars) and Nate Carson (drums) began in 1997 with the founding of Portland, Oregon’s first doom metal band. The first time High on Fire and Electric Wizard played in town, they shared the stage with Witch Mountain, and slept on Nate’s floor after the show. The first time YOB played in Portland was also supporting WM. Same goes for Agalloch. Friends and peers all.

With as much history and pedigree as WM had developed, Carson and Wrong were loathe to shelve their project, especially considering that the core duo was still intact. Many bassists had spontaneously combusted over the years, but early 2015 brought Justin Brown to the fold. His low end tone and tasteful swagger only solidified the band further. And then there’s vocalist Kayla Dixon.

Uta left big shoes to fill, and the tours over the last three years have cemented Kayla’s uncanny ability to sing, perform, and write with the band. It was key to Wrong and Carson not to rush back into the studio with a new group. Instead, a family unit began to develop during the 2015 tour with Enslaved and YOB. Then Glenn Danzig called, requesting WM for support on his Blackest of the Black tour. WM fan and supporter Phil Anselmo had a hand in there somewhere too...

After the Danzig tour, Witch Mountain set to work writing a new album, interrupted once more by another full US tour with Saint Vitus and the Skull. By this time, Rob Wrong was also playing guitar with the Skull, holding down double duty with two of America’s most classic traditional doom bands, proving that his pyrotechnic hybrid of Hendrix and Iommi is a force to be reckoned with.

And here comes the fruit of these labors. A new band, fronted by a young woman who has been singing, acting, and dancing since she was a small child. Kayla Dixon brings her top tier abilities to a genre little known for such soulful vocal chops. The 2016 single “Burn You Down” (streaming on NPR.org) was a hint at the majesty to come. The self-titled 2018 album is going to cement her place among the greatest singers metal has ever produced.

Witch Mountain still maintains total artistic control. The band is self-managed, self-booked, and owns its entire back catalog.

We are proud to be twenty years in, having never peaked along the way.
