Slowcore band formed in Umea, Sweden 1996 by drummer Andreas Nilsson and singer/guitarist Magnus Bjorklund. After six months of being a dynamic power duo, bassplayer Kristoffer Larsson joined the band and a short while later the flamboyant, yet tonally vibrant guitarist Johannes Berglund made the outfit complete. Influences have been diverse and many; bands such as Red House Painters, American Music Club, Idaho, Ride and many others prepared the setting in which the bands sound was created. Cobolt has toured Spain (even including the isle of Mallorca!), Germany and Sweden during the years. A new Cobolt album has been in the works for some time now, and some of the songs will be surfacing on his MySpace site. Enjoy.
