Since their inception in early 2015, Seattle based doom duo, YEAR OF THE COBRA, has garnered a lot of attention. After being discovered by famed Pacific Northwest blog site Doomed and Stoned in early 2016, they started to amass a solid following. The early rough mixes they released eventually became their debut EP, The Black Sun (2015), co-released by DHU Records (Netherlands), Devil’s Child Records (US), and Heavy Metal Vomit Party (Slovak Republic). Soon after, they signed with heavy weights, STB Records, who would eventually release their debut full length LP worldwide.
YOTC hit the road hard in 2016 with multiple West Coast tours and a full US tour. To promote their nation wide tour, they released a 7” split with tour mates and legendary stoner rock band, Mos Generator. The 7” sold out within days as the two bands toured across the US. With the excitement at full steam, their highly anticipated debut full length, …In The Shadows Below, was featured and streamed live via noisey.vice.com on October 26, 2016 to high acclaim, and was available worldwide on October 28th via STB Records on all formats (Vinyl, Cd, Tape, Digital). Since it’s debut, the album has received rave reviews and is still selling strong.
