180 gram deluxe vinyl version with Stoughton gatefold jacket.
Southern Lord is proud to present the new opus from The Bay Area's devastating duo BLACK COBRA. Formed by drummer Rafa Martinez (ex-16, ex-Acid King) and guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-Cavity), the band catapulted themselves onto the scene in 2001 with their ravenous, upbeat and ultimately unique style of punk/hardcore-fueled sludge metal. They were picked up almost immediately by indie At A Loss Recordings, becoming the band's label home for the release of their debut full-length, Bestial, and follow-up album, Feather and Stone. By 2009, with the band then virtually a household name to the tens of thousands of fans who've seen their flooring live performances over the years, BLACK COBRA signed with juggernaut Southern Lord Recordings for the release of Chronomega, the band's most diverse material to date.
For the recording of Invernal, the band's second release for Southern Lord Recordings, BLACK COBRA recently ventured across the continent to pound out their anticipated new album, the follow-up to 2009's massively well-received Chronomega. This time around, the outfit enlisted the talents of Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou and his God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts. After a brutal week-and-a-half in the notorious lair, 'COBRA hammered out what will soon be known to the world as their almighty fourth full-length album! This is BLACK COBRA's most honed and diversified material to date, and will definitely tear your face off completely.
