Cobra Khan hasn’t lost any of the rapid tempo and menace they are known for - in fact, they've moved up a couple of gears. The new tunes all kick off with double-barrelled gunshot drumming, keyboard wreckage and sublime twin guitars entwining each other in a brute strength death match, giving ground only to make way for large vocal refrains. Their latest album sits together cohesively, giving the listener a dark and mean thrill ride for the full 46 minutes, moving through more complex moods than a Colin McCahon exhibition. 'Strider' is a ferocious two minutes flat, no bullshit and no goodbyes. 'Hound' would bust down your door and nick off with your family jewels before your very eyes if you let it, while 'White Fire' ebbs and swirls with the outgoing tide at the end of a long day - but mind the combined undertow of the vocal/drum combo, it makes for a killer sundowner.
