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 music on their albums is strongly related to the music of Pink Floyd. Also during live performances the sound of Cosmos is heavily inspired by this band. They often played covers of Pink Floyd on stage of which some have also been released on Live, a concert released on DVD and CD in 2004. Finally a demo was released in 2003 called "Different Faces".

Cosmos, c'est une mosaïque moderne qui se déroule dans la jungle citadine de Montréal, le temps pour 6 réalisateurs (Jennifer Alleyn, Manon Briand, Marie-Julie Dallaire, Arto Paragamian, André Turpin et Denis Villeneuve) de nous faire voir la nature humaine. Avec un personnage conducteur, un chauffeur de taxi philosophe d'origine grecque. Through an immigrant cab driver, our world collides with a nervous filmmaker, a lawyer whose new breasts her ex-boyfriend wants to see, a mystery man, a gay man who might or might not have AIDS, and a birthday girl who got stood up. It is a mixture of laughter and sadness, all floating on a sea of philosophy.
