One of the most beloved hidden gems in the Coil discog, Time Machines takes its name for and acts as an ode to a certain hallucination-inducing drug, the band working their tonal shifts into what they hoped would replicate the time-distortion inherent in its use. The record takes queues from Tibetan ceremonial music and retains Coil's shapeless punk edge. Get it while you can.

10/10 Ant 31 October 2017

Originally issued back in 1998 on Coil’s own Eskaton label and credited to Time Machines, this stone cold classic album has now been credited to Coil and remastered and reissued on DAIS Records. Jhon Balance, Peter Christopherson and Drew McDowall ripped a hole through the fabric of time and space with this one - almost 20 years later it remains as potent and powerful. The trio experimented with psychedelics/entheogens and created this masterful drone work to assist their travels. The pulsing analogue synth tones throughout this album are to die for. Simply put - I reckon this is one of the greatest drone albums of all time, and easily one of the greatest things Coil ever created. Highest possible recommendation.
