Current and former members of SHADOWS FALL, FATES WARNING, ALL THAT REMAINS and DARK DAY SUNDAY have joined forces in a new project called KOBRA KAI. The mission is simple: '80s metal covers done the way the way a metal show truly was back then — a party! The group says, "The way we see it, our time would usually consist of heading out to a bar, checking out a band and having many, many, many drinks… So why not get on stage and have a good time as well?! And you are not going to see the typical '80s cover-band bullshit. Just kick-ass, drunken '80s metal madness!"
KOBRA KAI is:
Mark Lopes (DARK DAY SUNDAY, HELLSPEAK) - Vocals
Jon Donais (SHADOWS FALL) - Guitar
Frank Aresti (FATES WARNING, DARK DAY SUNDAY) - Guitar
Matt Bachand (SHADOWS FALL) - Bass
Mike Bartlett (ex-ALL THAT REMAINS) - Drums
Upcoming KOBRA KAI shows:
Oct. 31 - Club Meadows – East Longmeadow, MA
Nov. 01 - City Sports – Northampton, MA
Dec. 31 - Slap Happy's – Bourne, MA
