Seattle stoner doom powerhouse Year Of The Cobra's second album "Ash And Dust" is sure to ultimately establish the duo - comprised of Amy Tung (bass/vocals) and Jon Barrysmith (drums) - as one of the genre's brightest stars, presenting a darker and more diverse sound than before with both psychedelic and post punk elements.
By now, Year Of The Cobra have found their very own niche, where lava-like riffs and pounding grooves melt with vocals of radiant grace and hooks of remarkable pop sensibility. Between all its excruciating heaviness, "Ash And Dust" reveals moments of light-hearted and angelic beauty. Captured into a larger-than-life production by legendary sound engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Bruce Dickinson), the album is a sonic experience that makes you want to dance into a flaming abyss.
"Ash And Dust" is available as CD Digipak and 180g LP (black or silver vinyl).
