Coilguns / BAILER / God Alone.
Thursday May 17th
€7 - 8pm
Coilguns is one of the proud flag holders of the 2.0 DIY scene since 2011 when they accidentally formed with the purpose of playing fast and simple music. After releasing a first ep in the shape of homemade screen printed and packed in pvc food bags cd version – they sign to Pelagic Records and quickly the band becomes the main activity of its three members. In 2012 guitarist Jona Nido founds his own label – Hummus Records -counting until now more than fifty releases including all Coilguns music.
Coilguns sums up a total of four ep’s and one full length. Their first album “Commuters” was released in February 2013 as a co-op between Hummus Records and Pelagic Records. All their music has always been recorded live and uncut, generally written and recorded on the spot wherever they were at the moment, sometimes on the other side of the world when touring with their former band, German prog-metallers The Ocean.
In 2015 and over a hundred sixty shows throughout Europe and Australia, the band decides to take a break and write the follow up to “Commuters”. In January 2016, the boys rent out a secluded house on the countryside of Germany and build up a full 16 tracks analog studio. For a month, the three are on their own, writing, recording and mixing their second full length themselves without any computer involved.
Despite all of them being busy with other projects (Louis Jucker solo, Closet Disco Queen,Kunz...) Coilguns still performed twice in 2016, one show taking place in Switzerland’s biggest open air festival; Paléo Festival. Coilguns now features a fourth multi-instrumentalist member adding dimension to the band’s live setup with extra synths, percussions and backing vocals.
"Sometimes you hear a new band that make you want to drive a motorbike through a wall. Bailer are that band." Metal Hammer“
They’re a band that already sound so colossal, they couldprobably beat Magneto in a fight.” Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio Fresh Blood
Heavy Irish metallic hardcore quartet BAILER take no prisoners with their brand new self-titled EP, which was released on 9th February 2018. Following on from 2017’s PTSD and 2016’s Shaped By The Landscape, BAILER is an ambitious collection of tracks that showcase a band who have truly discovered their sound.
With a small discography the four-piece have impressively garnered attention from Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Metal Injection and Heavy Blog Is Heavy, an achievement that is no mean feat for a band so early into their career. BAILER have spent their short time as a band building up a strong reputation in their home ground, having played shows alongside Norma Jean, Sick Of It All, Employed To Serve, Murdock, Red Enemy and more. 2018 will be the year that the quartet mark their territory further afield, with a tour of Russia already under their belt as well as more shows in the pipeline.
"They bring a free flowing energy to their music, each song a crescendo of progressive styling dipped in Black Metal. God Alone are one of the more interesting young bands in the country today." - HOT PRESS.
"Best band in Cork. Nay, in Ireland! That is all." - OVERBLOWN.
God Alone are an unbelievable 5 piece post-metal band from Cork. They have shared the stage with Shifting, Horse, Spekulativ Fiktion, Land Crabs, Zealot Cult, Soothsayer, Partholón, Corr Mhóna, We Come in Pieces, Rest and Bailer.
