Cobra Kai - 'Discography' LP
I finally tracked this down on vinyl (Thanks Josh!!!). Cobra Kai have been one of my favorite "Screamo" bands for a long time now. Not unlike Orchid or CombatWoundedVeteran, they play that sweet, spazzy, fall on the floor sort of Hardcore that was oh so popular in the late 90's/early 2000's. I am going to steal a direct quote here: "Musically Cobra Kai were a snot-splatter of a whole host of largely deceased screamo greats. Saetia duking it out with a less sexually-fixated Blood Brothers perhaps? A polite doffing of the cap to early Song of Zarathustra. A whiff of sulphur and a shake of the ass that brings the Swing Kids to mind. Spazz, strangle, squeal. Lots of voices happen at the same time. Spoiled children throw their dolly out and rattle the bars of their playpens. Keyboards trickle in and out, adding to some really fine grooves and lyrics that tell us tales of death-dealing robots." That came directly from CollectiveZine.com, they know what they are talking about.
