[engl] The crew from Diamond Kobra return in full force in their follow-up full-length to 2019’s "The Arrival“, with "Return of the Starbeast". With B.B. Baconsson & Otto Løfgren at the helm of a freshly upgraded and modified space-craft - this record explores further reaches of the sonic galaxy, with a refined ease. Modernized navigation, upgraded weapons, and an overhauled engine (powered by high octane prog-metal shred), whisk the listener from one dynamic soundscape to another. Each track is like it’s very own planet, a unique “boss- fight”, or a glimpse into certain moments in space-time, that matter. Long before all 12 tracks have completed, you’re far beyond a casual observer - you’re fully charged and engaged in all of the triumphs and turmoil. The entirety of this journey plays out much like a saga for the mind and ears... sometimes even experimental in nature, just like killer adult science & fiction should be. Join Diamond Kobra in the search for what could be out there, shifting between the balance of high-tech and low-life, and maintaining the frontier that is contemporary cyber-punk!
As always, Diamond Kobra has an exciting and honorable crew to back you up!
