The egg opened and the snake started crawling in April 2008 when Marco (vocals), Daniele, Luca (guitars), Toni (bass), decided to start a new project, after a ten-year experience of music together . They needed a drummer to arouse the snake vibrating under the sand. On May 2008 Antonio joined the band, he brought his experience and completed the line up. This gave birth to The Red Coil project, a mix of metal, stoner, alternative, with a beer and whiskey flavour. Lots of influences (Down, Black Sabbath, Black Label Society, Kyuss, Pink Floyd, just to make few names) mixed with the idea of making rough music without frills. The name The Red Coil is related to the concept of Kundalini the energy that resides in the subtle body and it’s traditionally represented as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine The awakening of Kundalini is a kind of Dante's journey where we pass from hell to the heaven discovering heaven and hell are a mirror image and only facing its animal spirit, the man can reach liberation. The Red Coil’ sound is the soundtrack for this trip ... "alcoholic & altered” In a few months the alchemy of the band bear fruits and on December 2008 they started the recording of their first Ep at Octopussy Studios, under the direction of A. Garavaglia (drummer of the metal band Mesmerize). On February 2009 the demo Ep "Slough Off" came out. Now The Red Coil are ready to spread their music wherever is possible!
free the coiled snake…drink and let it rise!
