TUF009: Kollapse – Angst LP
Kollapse: a four piece from Aalborg, Denmark playing desperate music for desperate times.
Kollapse started jamming around 2012 with the intention of uniting the members’ love of metal, punk, hardcore, doom, noise, and postrock. After a DIY 10” the band unified their expression and released a split 7” with Copenhagen-based crusty hardcore band No Fealty. The song “Father”, on that release, set the benchmark for their later material. It became known for its heavy grooves and passages, drone breakdowns and dark and melancholy vocals.
Today Kollapse is an eclectic mix of melodic doom riffs, epic crust, dark emo, and simplistic song structures and narratives. The band itself does not care about genres, but they aim to create a pure, authentic, and emotional expression filled with lyrics about the darkness in man. The lyrics are worn with their hearts on their sleeves putting everything up for display.
Kollapse recorded their debut LP together with producer Jacob Bredahl in the spring of 2016. The album with the title “Angst” will be released May 19th, 2017. With a producer in line, that understood the band and their direction, the sound on the album manifested the darker, heavier, and more focused sound, that vary between drawling slow and angrily fast. The lyrics on the new album continues the focus the band had prior with darkness of man, and deals with anxiety, loss, freedom, suicide, death, and upbringing as underlying themes.

“... deadly sound, inexorable and cold like ice. Monumental riffs alternate with arpeggious phrases while a voice screams at their own sorrow. Really interesting. “

“ If Kollapse is able to get rid of influences that today seem too easy to identify and acquire more personality, we may be faced with one of the most interesting acts of the European Underground. “

"KOLLAPSE outline a gloomy work that creates fears and sorrows and, in keeping with the motto" First of all, end before you start something new, "gives free rein to the madness that has already advanced so far that the compromise between psychoterror and suicide implies a sacrifice. "
