Biography

[ cell 7 ] is an electronic industrial band formed in Perth, Western Australia. Starting in the early 1990s, [ cell 7 ] was initially influenced by IDM artists such as Autechre and Aphex Twin as well as the more accessible sounds of Depeche Mode, the Cure and Nine Inch Nails. The band has been referred to as ‘endustrial’ in sound, possibly to indicate the distinction between [ cell 7 ] and the normal perception of the industrial genre.
The name [ cell 7 ] is a reference to biological cells rather than incarceration, and the square brackets are part of the official moniker.

Nick and Paul both grew up in the hills of Perth, attending the same primary school. Meeting up again at university, after Mueller had trained in classical music, they began experimenting with sounds and instrumentation, combining alt-metal, goth and industrial noise elements with synth-pop, techno and electronica. They built a strong local following which was recognized with [ cell 7 ] winning 3 consecutive WAMI awards (1999, 2000, 2001) and performing live on RTRFM. A limited edition mini-album (300 signed and numbered EPs) Precognition was released, selling out in under 72 hours.
In late 2001 both members relocated to Sydney, Australia for work reasons, and [ cell 7 ] took a hiatus from live performance. As Nick explained in a 4ZZZ radio interview - “real life got in the way”.
In 2007, Nick moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands and there completed the recording and production on a full-length album.
