-Counting To Zero
"Counting To Zero"
Label: Noiseplus Music (2011)
Counting To Zero features eleven new and original tracks that channel the band's electro, trip hop, and synthpop core, with a subtle dose of exoticness. This--their seventh full length studio release--is a cohesive unit set on digitizing your brain matter into a cybernetic dreamscape of bass, beats, guitars, and synthetic ear candy supplemented by ethereal female vocals.
Collide breaks from the current trend of releasing electronic albums wrapped in filler and remixes, and instead populates the album with ecstatic wavelengths that continue from start to finish with an absolutely infectious soundscape of electronics. Counting To Zero is a sonic seduction rarely heard, resulting in an album that is nothing but pure listening pleasure. With an expansive career in music, (which includes their side project The Secret Meeting with the legendary Dean Garcia (Curve)), Statik has also contributed to projects by other artists as wide ranging as Tool, Prince, and Leonard Cohen, to name only a few. Collide's songs have been remixed by well-known producers Charlie Clouser (NIN, SAW), cEvin Key (Skinny Puppy) and Rhys Fulber, (Frontline Assembly, Delerium).
Collide has been featured internationally in many magazines including: Outburn, Nocturnal, Gothic Beauty, The Mick, Beyond Fantasy, Keyboard, Side Line, Zillo, and Glasswerk, among others.
Collide's atmospheric soundscapes have been featured on the uber-popular True Blood (HBO), Vampire Diaries (CW), Fringe (Fox), and NCIS (CBS), as well as being featured prominently in feature films such as Resident Evil (Sony), and The Covenant (Sony).
With Counting To Zero, Collide hopes to prove that after over a decade of fighting the good fight, they are truly a force to be reckoned with!
