Today, AIRACOBRA released "Midwestern Steel," the dastardly and pummeling title track and first single from the upcoming album Midwestern Steel. This is AIRACOBRA's first full length album. The band has previously released three EPs and several singles. The single is available now on all the major streaming services: Spotify, Apple, Amazon.

Midwestern Steel is a barn burner of a song that encompasses everything that I like about metal. Fast paced, catchy hooks, heavy grooves and ripping guitar work, ” shares drummer Zakk Burke. Vocalist, Dusty Raymer adds “Midwestern Steel is a proclamation of war against anything watered down. It’s a black flag waving in a field of all things plastic and weak. A badge for those who plan to go to the grave with a metal heart.

AIRACOBRA has been described as "Heavy Metal that combines dark imagery and themed lyrics with Rock n Roll hooks and a touch of theatrics". AIRACOBRA has described themselves as an "Apocalyptic Sleaze Metal Band".

AIRACOBRA will be appearing, again, at the FULL TERROR ASSAULT OPEN AIR 2022 FESTIVAL. It is their sophomore installment at the biggest and heaviest metal party in the woods which will run from September 7 through September 10 in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. For tickets and more information click here:

AIRACOBRA’s mission statement and sentiment is simple: genuine, authentic metal from the heart of metal, the midwest.

AIRACOBRA have cultivated a reputation for being a high-energy, entertaining live experience while also writing authentic metal that not only is aggressive and powerful but also catchy and melodic.

By combining "NWOBHM" riffs with searing high vocals that invokes names like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, and also utilizing neck-snapping thrash sections and modern crushing screams that are connotative to Skeletonwitch and Carcass, AIRACOBRA is poised to unleash their first full length LP, Midwestern Steel, to the world on March 11, 2022.

Honoring the forefathers who created the blueprint for heavy metal, AIRACOBRA is an aural trip to the past, while simultaneously a sonic view into the future of heavy metal.
