The Red Coil is an Italian southern/sludge/rock band formed in April 2008 in the west Milan area.
The name The Red Coil is related to the concept of Kundalini, the energy that resides in the subtle body traditionally represented as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine. The band released the first Ep "Sloug Off" in 2009 including three tracks and receiving very good feedback. The song "Burning Shores" was chosen to open the Sludge Swamp Comp Vol.II promoted by the Sludge Swamp Webzine, and for this track TRC realized a video clip inspired by the Hindu Aghora tradition. After a couple of years spent playing in the north of Italy with some important bands of the stoner/doom scene they began working on the new material and on May 2011 they entered the Octopussy Studios to start the recording sessions of their first full length. Ten songs with a beer and whiskey flavor recorded and mixed by Andrea Garavaglia (Mesmerize) and mastered by Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere, Allhelluja) at Dead Rat Studio (Denmark).
Their debut album "Lam" finally come out on October 2012. In autumn 2015 the bass player Toni decided to left the band, when a lot of new songs was quite ready. The Red Coil announced the new bass player Gelindo in December 2015 and immediately started working and arranging the new material. In May 2017 they signed a deal with Argonauta Records for their new album , including 7 brand new songs and a cover. THE RED COIL's new album “Himalayan Demons” is a blast of sonorities highly recommended if you like Spiritual Beggars, Corrosion of Conformity and Iron Monkey, it'll be released on CD/DD by Argonauta Records and available from June 22nd, 2018.
