Swiss outfit COSMOS can trace it's roots back to 1990, when Reto Iseli (drums, vocals) formed his first band, at that time called Glacier Eagles. Late in 1993 they decided that Cosmos was a better sounding and describing name for their Pink Floyd influenced musical ventures, and the following year saw them release their debut album The Deciding Moments of Your Life.
The album was met with a fairly good reception; and for the next few years Cosmos enjoyed a fair degree of success in their native country with live shows combining their own original material with Pink Floyd covers. However, in 1998 internal tensions saw to it that the band broke up.
Come 2003 and a solo project started by Heiko Garrn (bass) and Olivier Maier (guitars) invited Iseli to join them; and with the addition of Silvia Thierstein (vocals) and Daniel Eggenberger (keyboards) it was decided to scrap the solo project, and to revive Cosmos again.
So far this has lead to a live album in 2004, and in 2006 a new studio release, Skygarden, was issued.
A third studio effort from the band is planned for a 2009 release. http://www.progarchives.com
