Welcome to the Blue Pages
The first time we played as Kobalt Blue was September 11th 2001, which is an absolute crazy coincidence but true. Back then we were a three piece playing covers such as Blink 182, Green Day, and Pennywise. During December of 2003 we got a new drummer and second guitar and now only do original stuff besides the odd Metallica cover for fun.
We take any opportunity we can to play live because that is what it is all about. Of course we love to play live, I dont think there is a band who doesnt. At least there shouldnt be. It is the thing that keeps us together. Working on songs or recording together can get everyone pissed of at each other real fast but then the adrenaline rush from on stage makes it all worth it.
Although some of these bands styles are not apparent in our music, all of the following and many more have influenced us in some way or another. Metallica, System Of A Down, Nirvana, Blink 182, Blind Guardian, Rise Against, NOFX, Matchbook Romance, Three Days Grace, Finch, Bad Religion, Wizo, The Offspring, Rammstein, Bose Onklez
Marshall, Fender, Epiphone, Peavey, Boss, Ibanez, Dunlop, Sabian, Zildjian, Paiste, Zoom, Pearl
Guitar/Vocals: Manuel Oppel
Lead guitar: Kyle Osbourne

We would welcome some feedback if you have anything to say about our band, good or bad, we have heard it all.
