When I first saw how long it would last, I thought boredom here we come!
But I was indeed surprised.
It had some of that retro rawness of Wolfmother, and then I heard Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden influences.
Well, I wasn't bored for one second.
Strange to see so many styles of metal in one song.
Traditionally more in the white community, but metal has been a popular since the early 1990s.
There were a lot of good local bands, and there were many distinctive styles.
The best bands were probably Voice of Destruction (VOD) and a a semi-metal alternative group called The Springbok Nude Girls.
Both had limited success in Europe and the UK.
Some of those musicians got together to form KOBUS (I think they even opened for Manowar).
Living in a fairly brutalized society, some say metal came naturally to us, but as fringe music it was hardly ever promoted or funded.
That seems to be changing.
Here is KOBUS singing in Afrikaans:
Nice I didn't know the release date. The new track is OK these guys have mellowed out a little on their releases mind you they are still killer live.
I suggest going to see them if you haven't already.
