ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE GREAT COLLAPSE

"The Great Collapse" is a five-piece, female fronted band from Toronto ON. They blend a diverse variety of sounds including extreme metal,industrial, jazz, classical and progressive rock. The end result is a very unique, refreshing and somewhat shocking sound.

Their debut self titled album, recorded by Greg Dawson at BWC studios (The End, Moneen, Choke, Mare, Starring Janet Leigh ect..), was released January 2009.

The Great Collapse was formed in 2007 by Luke Roberts (Guitar) and Cameron Warrack(Drums), formerly from Toronto band "Archaeon" (2000 -2005). They then found : Angela Wheeler - vox, Mike Simpson - bass and Brett Leier - guitar to complete the current lineup.

This band went through several stages before becoming what it is now.
The older incarnations of the band "Archaeon" and "Malignity", appealed to a more exclusively metal audience.
The new, unusual sound this band has found for this album is much more of
a bold artistic step that neither panders specifically to metal heads or any classifiable mold of mainstream music.

The Great Collapse has shared the stage with such acts as: Dimmu Borgir, Cryptopsy, Quo Vadis, Martyr, Augury, Macabre, Threat Signal, Unexpect, Misery Index, Fuck the Facts, Behold ...the Arctopus, Psyopus, Cephalic Carnage and Today is the Day.

Wow
This band was recommended by a friend back home and I am glad I bought this Cd and it is now in my normal rotation on both my cpu and ipod.

It's tough to mix chaos and precision, but this Ontario five-piece has found the balance, blistering through intricate riffs and breaks, while always keeping the guitars hammering away, teetering right around the ear-bleeding level. This is metal, but uniformly classifying it beyond that could pose a problem. With female vocals, elements of metalcore, prog rock, and even a little industrial, this isn't a record that's looking to fit tightly into any sort of niche. It's a wise approach, because it allows them to shift styles from song-to-song (and even within individual songs), appealing to folks who may simply appreciate ambitious song structures and high-energy consistency in the playing. The production here is equally strong, making the tracks huge in scope and certifiably forceful. If nothing else, "Morning Mass Suicide" is just a great song title, and the opening riff will make you fall off your chair.

Refreshingly Different But Still Wickedly Heavy
Picked this up shortly after it was initially released! Was fortunate enough to get it on CD (currently, only the download is available)... but have never forgotten this very memorable album! Killer mix of technical metal, jazz and varied female vocal styles with high octane energy. Not sure what ever happened to the band (without doing research on the web)... but it's still on of the best works I've ever purchased from CD Baby! Highly recommend for the permanent play rotation! ;) :D
