Cosmograf was formed in 2008 when Robin Armstrong produced his first home demo album, followed by the release of ‘End of Ecclesia’ in 2009. The next release ‘When Age Has Done Its Duty’ captured the attention of the progressive rock community, and the press alike, leading to a Limelight nomination in the PROG magazine awards. The sound is rooted in 70’s classic rock with many contemporary influences from rock, progressive rock and metal. There is always a particular emphasis on concepts and atmospheric production leading to comparisons with artists such as Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, and Steven Wilson. Cosmograf has released some 7 albums, with much critical acclaim and press attention and moved to the Gravity Dream label in 2019.
