The Coil played at Perth - boxing day
Time on stage: 4.40pm
The Coil was born in late 2008 as a metal project between Andrejs van Burgel and Zac Andrews in a small town called Esperance in Western Australia. Beginning as an attempt to create exactly what they wanted to hear, a sort of "niche" between the absolute clutter of the countless sub-genres in metal. To make a sound that was not afraid of any genre but still couldn't fit into one.
The Coil's writing process leaves a very unique atmosphere to the music, while allowing the group to seamlessly flow between styles and leaving a lot of room for growth.
With only a guitarist and vocalist The Coil distributed their EP "DYAD" in 2009. The EP was created almost as a demonstration of what the band was capable of. The first step to their future was relocating to the city of Albany, WA. Quickly forming a very loyal fan base and then after being approached
by bass player Tim Caramia, The Coil became a three piece. Forced to resort to back house parties and occasional shows in the capital Perth, The Coil became quickly known for its intense live performances and their unique sound. Having entered Global Battle of the Bands in August 2011 and came a draw for first place with old friends "Reflections", both winning the opportunity
to compete in the national finals in 2012.
