Coil was an industrial group primarily consisting of John Balance and Peter Christopherson. Coil were commissioned to do several Nine Inch Nails remixes. At one time the group planned on releasing Backwards through Nothing Records, but this never happened. The Backwards demo surfaced and alternate incarnations of the songs appear on the Coil releases The Ape of Naples and The New Backwards. The original Backwards was finally given a proper release in 2015.

Many of the NIN remixes also employed part time Coil member Danny Hyde. Drew McDowall was an additional Coil credit on the Further Down The Spiral remixes. In an interview, Peter Christopherson also mentioned that Trent Reznor asked Coil to do a remix of "The Perfect Drug", but he turned the offer down to focus on Backwards. The group ended when John Balance died in November of 2004. Peter Christopherson also died in 2010.

Trent Reznor's side project, How To Destroy Angels, was named after Coil's first single. A group of new NIN remixes by Danny Hyde (originally believed to be unreleased alternate versions of Coil's remixes) were obtained by fans in 2012 and released as the unofficial download-only compilation Uncoiled, and excerpts were later packaged semi-officially as Recoiled.
