Stream Cobalt’s Slow Forever in its Entirety
The countdown to Cobalt’s first new album since 2009’s Gin has been an arduous one, but three new tracks later we’ve finally reached the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Below is Slow Forever, streamable in its entirety.
I’ll be interested to hear fan responses to this record. I personally love it, but I definitely notice that it’s a more straightforward metal record (as ‘straightforward’ as Cobalt could make, anyway), with fewer of the bizarre quiet moments that many people loved on Gin. It’s easy to chalk that up to the replacement of longtime vocalist Phil McSorley with Lord Mantis’ Charlie Fell, but from what I’m hearing it sounds like Erik Wunder is feeling confident in his songwriting, able to dive entirely into his own form of bitter, jangling black metal.
Anyway, listen to Slow Forever below. The album drops Friday on Profound Lore.
