Cobra Lounge - Western and Ashland Ave.

Cobra Lounge is located on 235 N. Ashland Ave. Host to many events, covering many genres of music on.  August 12 2012 bands Earthen -Winterhymn -Anticosm - Empyreus  - Veneficum took to the stage.

Opening the evening was Venificum, although without a drummer they put on a killer set. Very intense atmosphere and incredible stage presence.

Up next Empyreus, featuring members from They Die Screaming and Elbow Deep- they also shared the keyboard player from Venificum. Great black metal feel to their songs which crossover into death metal style at times. Tom Knudsen- Vocalist gave a very energetic performance.

Anticosm from Detroit, traveled a long way to perform a very death metal set, although there was a few technical difficulties they still pull it all together to finish on a good note.

Winterhymn- Put on an incredible performance. Folk metal style along with some incredible musicians on Keyboards and Violin. A very eye pleasing stage appearance with songs that were very easy to sing a long to.

Earthen headline this event. Chicago based metal band with a wide array of elements. By far the audiences favorite and very warm welcome to their music by everyone in attendance.

    My name is Frank Garcia, I am an artist and musician. I have a passion for photography, mainly night photography. Night brings out an elegance and character of the Windy City that is rarely seen by the public. In the past few years I have captured many images of the city with my camera from Lake Shore drive to the downtown area. I am also very involved in the rock/metal music scene here in the mid-west. i am guitarist for the band Waking Chaos and Nekropsy. As an artist, I use airbrush, spray-paint, and traditional acrylic for paintings. You can visit my art galleries by going to my web site link from the site.
