Cobra Cult started out as a project when singer/guitar player Johanna Lindhult (ex Ordogs) and bass player Thomas Jonsson (ex Circle of Chaos) started to wright songs together in the summer of 2015.
During the autumn they called up hard hitting drummer Carl Johan ”Sillen” Sillén (ex Slowlife) and asked if he would be interested in getting together and jam some of the songs. Already at the first jam the chemistry was there so Oskar Viklund (ex Savage Skülls) was invited to handle the guitar. During the spring of 2016 the band recorded two songs ”Forever faster” and ”Die!” with Linus Nirbrant (This Ending, A Canorous Quintet) at Audiogrind Studios and in August the same year the band played the first live show. In February 2017 the band entered the legendary Sunlight Studio to record the 4-track EP ”The Sunlight Tapes” with legend Tomas Skogsberg. During that period Magnus Palm (The Stickshifters) joined the band as the new guitarplayer. During 2017 Cobra Cult also did the first gig abroad at the Bremer Metal Festival in Bremen, Germany. On November the 6th, 2018 the self-titled debut album was released. The album was recorded and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight studio and mastered by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust. In January 2019, Anders Martinsgård (Black Solstice, ex Ponamero Sundown) joined the band as the new guitarplayer. Cobra Cult is based in Stockholm, Sweden and the music is described as ”Rock´n´rollish metalpunk”. For fans of The Misfits, Motörhead and L7!
