It’s the survival of the human race. Something Night Cobra don’t give a shit about.
If you caught that reference, than the Houston-based trad metallers new video for “Escape from Earth” is squarely in your demographic. If you didn’t, then you need to spend more time with the early ’80s action/sci-fi classic Escape from New York and less on The Great British Baking Show.
“Night Cobra’s style of old heavy metal fits perfectly with the dystopian-style future of the Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. films,” says Night Cobra frontman Christian Larson. “‘Escape from Earth’ is based off the idea of the third John Carpenter movie in the series that was never made. I thought it would only be fitting to make a video inspired by his work as tribute.”
“Night Cobra’s vocalist, Christian, asked if we could pull off an Escape from New York style music video on almost no budget, with minimal crew and without the band playing in the video,” confirms video director Dwayne Cathey. “It would be ‘all story’ like the classic videos of old. Challenge accepted!”
