The two Berlin girls Gina V. D'Orio (also of Ec8or) and Annika Line Trost kick their samplers to the curb as you've never heard them before! For their fourth release on Monika, Cobra Killer have teamed up with mandolin orchestra Kapajkos to produce something quite extraordinary. Still present are Cobra Killer hits such as "Heavy Rotation," "L.A. Shaker" and "Show Me Your Ruler," but gone are the electro beats and retro samples. These have been replaced instead with a classical folk instrumentation; three mandolins, bass, keys and percussion. The effect is most striking. New life has been given to many of the songs from 2004's 76/77, The Third Armpit, and Cobra Killer. This fresh take on the Cobra Killer sound adds a new dimension to the band. It's the same unstoppable energy we know and love but from a completely different perspective. With this album Trost and D'Orio show they have the artistic freedom and creative originality to do something entirely new. The crowd surfing, wine showering spontaneity of Cobra Killer's live show is reflected in their decision to move in an unpredictable direction with this new album, defying comparison. This fresh new project is sure to satisfy fans of the girls as well as anyone just looking for something a little unusual and exotic. Don't say no to Hanns Eisler and Bert Kaempfert -- say yes to Cobra Killer.
