Metal high priestess Kobra Paige returns with a special 5 song EP that features her hard rocking take on classic Canadian rock hits of the past. Includes songs originally made famous by Rush, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Alannah Myles (with a blistering covering of the worldwide #1 single, "Black Velvet"). This EP follows last year's High Priestess album, which reached #3 on the metal radio charts and was crowned #4 Metal Album of 2014 by influential site Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles.

Top Customer Reviews
1. Lay It On the Line (Triumph) – Kobra and the Lotus does a first class cover of this Triumph classic. Kobra Paige’s voice is perfectly suited to this one.
2. Sign of the Gypsy Queen (April Wine) – Hearing any band cover any April Wine song is extremely rare. They picked one of April Wine’s most rocking, most adaptable-to-metal songs too. This is probably the highlight of this EP.
3. Black Velvet (Alannah Myles) – I hate this song with the burning intensity of a thousand suns, so I can’t give a very objective assessment of this cover. Kobra’s voice is infinitely less abrasive, so it has that much going for it. Still, the skip button beckons…
4. Let It Ride (Bachmann-Turner Overdrive) – This one is just fun. Maybe not as impressive as the first two tracks, but it’s a feel-good cover of a feel-good song.
5. Spirit of Radio (Rush) – Well of course there had to be a Rush cover, and they certainly picked a classic. It’s nice and heavy, and Paige does a great job stretching her voice to imitate Geddy Lee’s unique style.
This is just a really fun collection of cover songs. I could quibble about the song selection (a Helix cover would have been perfect), but Words of the Prophets is pretty darned good as-is. If you’re into Kobra and the Lotus, it’s a nice addition to their discography. It’s also a must-have for fans of Canadian hard rock in general.
