2005 release on Monika. I had remembered Cobra Killer as another shrill digital hardcore group from my past flirtings with Alec Empire's DHR label. I had been a fan of Empire's solo work as well as the releases from Cristoph de Babalon, Atari Teenage Riot's Nic Endo and Hanin Elias and ATR itself. Picked this up not only for the flash of buttshot, but also as a curiosity... CK backed by three mandonins, keys, bass and a percussionist. I don't remember whether or not these are older CK tracks or if they're new compositions, but they've maintained the playful shrillness and injected an eastern European sound into their cute/creepy sound.
