About this album

1. Crushed starts dark, crafty, taking control of everything that crosses its way, saying who is the boss, imposing itself, triumphing and stating why it is there for: to devastate with a heavy, rhythmic, implacable and stoning sound; 2. Euphoria is less clouded, lets a little sunshine in, takes some of the load off, swings with a suggestive beat, with some sporadic and massive attacks of powerful guitars, mixing gothic with sensuality, indefinite and hypnotic; then comes 3. Modify, still scary, a little bit lighter with some acoustic and random chords, a lazy and seductive vocal, as if it was biding its time, trying to figure out what to play next, making you think it is just another dark wave band with repetitive songs; but you do not realize you are being seduced by the casual and modest voice, the random solos and the dragged rhythm and next you see yourself face to face with 4. Somewhere, flying in a sky without clouds, surprising you with a cleaner and more definite and majestic sound, fascinating, without commercial appeals and now you do not know what kind of music they will play next; and what comes next, 5. Slither Thing, is unexpected for those who finds Collide too vampire; its a modern pop sound, like a Garbage who did not get stuck with ‘Stupid Girl’ and went a little bit further; it is pure psychedelic; you do not know you’ve been high for some time and when you realize it enters 6. Inside, so beautiful, so soft, so charmful that makes you sick; that’s what I call the most pretty thing, full of grace and full of ‘bossa’.

    I've noticed this album's cover in Bloodlines today. It's really good, though I think I like Chiasm more.

    I played hundreads of time Vampire the Masquarade and never noticed about the cover, though (while Lacuna Coil's Comalies was pretty clear). Gotta play one more time just to check it (while listening to their music in background. Just found them today :) )

    I'm amazed Complicated is one of the least played tracks on the album, it's probably my favorite Collide song.
