2013's Commuters is the first full-length by the unconventional Swiss trio Coilguns. The band's line-up is pretty unique here: drummer Luc Hess and guitarist Jona Nido are the only instrumentalists. A massive custom-built pedal board and a well thought-out chain of several amps allows Jona to sound like two guitar players and a bass player altogether. Vocalist Louis Jucker completes the lineup.

Commuters was entirely recorded live, every song in one take. To challenge themselves and as a stance against "email albums," several musicians were invited to take part in the recording process, including Keijo Niinima of Rotten Sounds / Nasum fame, who came down to Switzerland to lay down guest vocals on one track. On their debut, the incorporation of synths and more guitar and bass loops added more depth to their original punky version of mathcore. Some tracks on the album feature up to five guitar players at the same time. No overdubs or edits have been made on this record except for the vocals.

Longtime friend Julien Fehlmann was in charge of mixing and mastering the album and his experience and approach to this record was as unconventional as the band's songs. The whole record was approached more like a 70's rock record than a metal album. What came out is a mix that is different from anything you'll likely hear in modern productions. The artwork was done by Spitzhorn, a Swiss duo dedicated to avant-garde design.
