Coil gun: A projectile accelerator which utilizes electromagnetic coils to discharge a projectile at extremely high velocity.

La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. While most people from this small mountain town spend their lives handcrafting complicated mechanisms for luxury watches, COILGUNS have been busy crafting complex mechanisms of their own.

Coilguns is guitarist Jona Nido, drummer Luc Hess and bass player / vocalist Louis Jucker, all of who also play in THE OCEAN.

The band was initiated by Jona in December 2010 and began their sonic journey in the studio soon afterwards and with the help of a healthy dose of Mauritian rum, Swiss absinthe and greens.

From the haze emerged 3 tracks brutal as a kick in the teeth, raw as a laceration and tight as a Swiss watch.

The 3 tracks on this split CD are merely a first sign of life of this promising new outfit.

The band will be on tour throughout Europe beginning of September. SELLING POINTS: For fans of Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cursed Featuring 3 members of THE OCEAN 150 copies of a limited handmade version of the split were sold throughout the United States, the UK & the EU during The Ocean's last tour fancy digipak packaging for an unbeatable low price! Artwork by newcomer talent Dawid Piprek (Earthship) K U N Z, also hailing from La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, is nothing more and nothing less than The Ocean Collective's current rythm section, consisting of Louis Jucker (bass / baritone guitar / vocals) and Luc Hess (drums).

Both musicians are involved in various projects of the local heavy music scene. K U N Z stands for minimalist instrumentation and song structures, exuberating live-improvisations and the sheer raw energy of good old noise-rock.

Louis Jucker's visceral vocals and dirty power-riffs are complemented and consciously destroyed by Luc Hess' explosive and explorative drumming - all within songs that rarely last longer than 3 minutes.

The band is known for experimenting with different live set-ups; stacking a ridiculous amount of amps and cab, playing on moving plattforms, in the middle of the room or trapped in cages.
