Collide Instrumentals

We've been working on something rather exciting lately. We've been going back through all of our computer back-ups, tape back-ups, DATs, old files, and old computers.

We've compiled instrumental versions of our entire album collection. This also includes our Secret Meeting album and singles. On most of the albums, we have also included an unreleased song, or remix. As far as we know, this isn't anything that any band has ever done, as far as an entire catalog of music goes.

The best part? Each download is only $4.99. These will only be available on our own store, Noiseplus Music.

We've also put up our original demo of The Crimson Trial, which was previously only available on long lost cassette versions.

The complete list of new downloads are:

1. The Crimson Trial
2. Beneath the Skin - Instrumentals
3. Distort - Instrumentals (Includes instrumental versions of both "Beneath the Skin (Constrictor Mix) & "Beneath the Skin" (Pulse MIx), both of which both original versions were only available on the Skin EP, and "Deep" (Guitar Only) (a previously unreleased Mix)
4. Chasing the Ghost - Instrumentals
5. Some Kind of Strange - Instrumentals (Includes the previously unreleased instrumental track "Rebuilt", which was recorded during the Some Kind of Strange recording sessions
6. Vortex - Instrumentals - (Includes the previously unreleased mix of "Somewhere" (Solara's Place) remixed by Statik)
7. Two Headed Monster - Instrumentals (Includes the previously unreleased instrumental track "Cherry", which was recorded during the Some Kind of Strange recording sessions
8. The Secret Meeting Ultrashiver - Instrumentals
9. The Secret Meeting Shiver X - Instrumentals - (Includes four new non-instrumental mixes; "Piano Perception Mix" by Tweaker Ray, "Heavenly Creatures' Cellar Mix" by Doctor Ohm, "Naked Highway Mix" by Sy Boccari, and "Dariusz Kujawa Mix" by Kujawa (Bane))
10. Shooting Laser Beams - Instrumentals

and also previously available:

11. These Eyes Before - Instrumental and Acapella
12. Counting to Zero - Instrumental and Acapella
13. Bent and Broken - Instrumentals

Riding the peak with Morpheus Music

Thanks to Paul for this wonderful review of Counting to Zero on Morpheus Music.

"Counting to Zero sees Collide doing all that they do best with even more class and finesse....kaRIN's distinctive voice and siren-song approach unites the songs, but there is a powerful unity of vision also in Statik's filmic-cyber-grunge sonic diversity. Interweaving the harshness of noise and distortion with musical grace and saturated colour, the beauty and passion of unique song: Collide are riding the peak of their wave. "

Thanks to Peter Marks from Brutal Resonance for another review on Counting to Zero. some of our favorite review snippits..."(kaRIN's vocals are) like a mercurial stream of glimmering diamonds...No seriously, shut your mouth and listen."

“Be prepared to drop the tempo and soak in a luxurious mixture of atmospheres, guitars, loops, and that voice. Oh that voice. This release has the same tactile sense of smoke languidly curling up into the still air from a 30s movie starlet lounging about at some off the strip bar waiting for a moment's peace from the chaos of public life. You sit and watch it rise and as it merges with the surroundings, there is a sense of beautiful symmetry which cuts through the haze: you have been here before but it is never the same and it never will be.

Many times on here, the backdrop of Statik's arrangements are drawn back to the barest hints of a song in order to let kaRIN's vocals shine through and shine they do. Like a mercurial stream of glimmering diamonds caught by the prospecter's eye amidst all the dust and dirt, she speaks and sings in ways I had not expected.

Thanks to Jason Nahrung for this great new review of Counting to Zero

“American duo Collide remind me a little of Massive Attack, but the midnight version...Counting to Zero is on high rotation, and their electro cruise is so smooth – find a place under the lasers in the fog and let your slo-mo bat-catching go wild.”
There are shards of Vangelis, Goldfrapp, John Foxx, Portishead … some Middle Eastern notes, too. The album is both perfect mood music for a chill-out as well as a funky stereo-sound experience.

Thanks to Bruce for a very cool new review on Counting to Zero.

“In the Autumn a paler rose blooms on the wood’d lee side; In the Autumn a young man’s fancy darkly turns to thoughts of Collide.”

Loose Morals Interview

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

We have just now posted a full-length video for "Mind Games", one of the new songs from Counting to Zero.

It was directed by the talented (and slightly crazy) Kevin McVey who also directed our last two videos as well as our live DVD. It was edited by longtime Collide collaborator Dave Keffer of KEFSKI creative services.

Shooting the video was the most gruelling day ever. It was shot in the desert in California in the middle of a heat wave. Pay close attention near the beginning where you see the dust devil. It hit us early in the day straight on, and slightly damaged some of our equipment, making a hard day almost impossible.

Anyway, we have it posted up here. We hope you enjoy!!

Counting to Zero release day

Today is the official day that Counting to Zero is released!!!!

We are soooo excited!!!

This is now our 7th studio full-length album (including The Secret Meeting) and it feels like quite a milestone for us. We have been making music for 15 years now, and we have seen a lot of changes go on in the music industry.

We are as passionate and caring about making music now as when we started. As many of you know, we are a completely self-run entity...we make the music, we produce it, we do the artwork, we pack the orders, we ship the orders, we pay for it, and so on, and so on. It is a labor of love from start to finish, and every detail is important to us. It is a lot of work running your own record label while also being the artists, but for us, it is worth it, as we can always be sure that it is completely our vision.

We would like to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate you taking this journey with us!!! You inspire us.

We are very thankful that you have helped to make it possible for us to continue making music, and for that you have our eternal appreciation.
