Stoned Cobra
Stoned Cobra
Rock band from Birmingham, AL.

Stoned Cobra combines influences from 90's desert rock and early 70's metal.

The story of Stoned Cobra is one of confusion, inebriation, denim and leather. To the best of their knowledge, this is how it all happened.

Stoned Cobra was born in Birmingham, AL in 2006 as a side-project for 4 Alabama musicians who at the time came from bands in the speed metal, thrash and post-rock genres. The collaboration began as an idea to lose some of the speed and complexities within current projects and develop a heavier and more simplified sound; essentially combining the tones and power of 90’s “stoner rock” with the riffs and stylings of early 70’s classic metal. What started as something to do over a couple cases of beer, became a primary band and focus.

The original lineup consisted of Krothe (Filleter, Necronomikids) on guitar, Wahl (Promise the Ghost, Riding Giants) on bass, Reed (Alan Ogg, Mordex) on drums and Isley (Hoss, Astral Tramp) on guitar and vocals. In 2010 Wahl would move to second guitar and Isley would take over the bass. In 2015 Birmingham metal veteran, Alan Light (Mephotis, Catchfire), joined the band as bassist and quintessential hype man, allowing Isley to move back to (3rd) guitar. With all consideration of hearing ability aside, the heavy... got heavier.

Over the years Stoned Cobra developed a reputation as one of Birmingham’s heaviest bands with can’t-miss high energy shows. Many a goats have been thrown and heads banged beneath the green aura that lights their stage. They have performed with bands such as Torche, Truckfighters, Akimbo, Weedeater, Nashville Pussy, Artimus Pyledriver, Venomous Maximus, Valient Thorr, Inter Arma, Black Tusk, Coliseum, Man or Astro-Man and more; and under the influence of Good People Brew, Jose Cuervo, Miller High Life, Jack Daniels, and more.

The band has 2 releases to date: A split record with Birmingham metal band, Arclight, titled “Thrones” and a full length titled “High and Mighty”. The 2013
self-released record would sell out in weeks.

Currently the band is writing for a series of EPs (“Armed and Hammered” and “Set in Stoned”) set to be released in late 2015 and 2016.
