What do you get if you mix Skindred and Pendulum, with the Prodigy?, the answer is ‘Collisions’.
Electro-metal fusionists Collisions are set to explode onto the underground scene with the release of their electrifying ‘Believe In This’ EP.
Since forming in 2011, the Brighton four-piece have been filling dance-floors across their home town with a refreshingly unique, high-octane fusion of metal, punk and drum & bass.
Support slots with the legendary Senser quickly established Collisions as a must see band, and simply through word of mouth their debut headline show at The Hydrant was a complete sell out.
This five track EP opens with ‘Believe In This’ which is also the bands debut video, its certainly infectious, a high-octane fusion of metal, punk and drum & bass.
Second track ‘Fire Fire’ is a sure fire tub thumper, a pumping, pulsating track with a Skindred style quickfire vocal delivery that just keeps on going and going, leaving you breathless by the pace of the song. So far, so good.
Track Three ‘Chasing Forms’ is a bit of a none starter for me, this track really struggles
to hold its own against the might of the previous two tracks, im even beginning to wonder if Collisions have peaked to soon ?
Track Four brings it all back from the precipice though, ‘Push’ is the standout track on this EP, combining all the best pieces from the first two songs into a three and a half minute monster of Nu-metal Drum’n’Bass, this is where the comparison with Pendulum comes in, I say comparison, as Collisions do have a style of there own, whitch is more harder edged, more rockier than Pendulum.
Track Five is a remix of ‘Once Weary Eyes, which shows the band are not afraid of showing us their Drum’n’Bass influences. Another hard hitting track.
Certainly a band to look out for, and a very good debut EP, 8/10. Out now.
