Cobalt Bio:

COBALT features multi-instrumentalist/mastermind Erik Wunder and new vocalist Charlie Fell (ex-Lord Mantis). The pair will be touring in support of their Slow Forever full-length, released this past March on CD, LP, and digitally via Profound Lore Records. Pitchfork named the record the band's, "best-ever," and, "as accessible as it is aggressive, with magnetic hooks, shout-along mantras, and sparkling riffs." Spin noted, "Slow was born of isolation and betrayal, but it's music that was meant for concert halls COBALT deserve to fill; music that rewards both introspection and reveling in like-minded rapture." Stereogum gushed, "Slow Forever works because it's way vaster and meaner and more monolithic than almost any album I've heard in recent years. It's not an album that does things. It simply is. If you listen to it in the right frame of mind, it creates this whole visceral hell-world inside your head, and you can just go fold in on yourself and live there." Added Metal Injection, "Slow Forever is a commanding and magisterial composition. It stands as a frame of reference for great metal much like its predecessor and transcends the hitches and missteps that COBALT has dealt with in the space between albums... a massively rewarding experience to digest and rife with some of COBALT's greatest individual moments."
