Carpe Nocturne reviews Color of Nothing

Carpe Nocturne reviews Color of Nothing

We're not sure why some of the reviews have taken so long to come out after our album release, but we're happy that they here at all.  It seems like we're still doing something right.  Here's the review.  Thanks to Sergio Manghina for sending it to us.

 

Twenty-five years of excellent music under the name Collide, and an interesting side project called The Secret Meeting with Dean Garcia of Curve, kaRIN and Statik have always had a completely different, personal vision or idea about what being “goth” with all its nuances really means.  Their sonic territory is an electronic dark wave with  distinctly industrial implications.  But, at the same time, something impalpable unequivocally distinguishes them from any other.  “Color of Nothing” is a further evidence of it.  

The backbone of this new album has a temperate dark-industrial feel, where the suavity of kaRIN is the gentle counterpoint of the robust implant of synths and drums impeccably performed by Statik.  Sharply guitars characterize several episodes.  “Wake Up” and “Soul Crush” are heavy, cutting songs, floating into an amniotic liquid of electronics.  “Freaks Me Out” and “Fix” levitates into different spectrums, but both can invoke multi-color psychedelic trips.  “Will Not Be Destroyed” is touched by some shades of noir while “Blurring the Edges” is romantic-arcane trip-hop.  However, each song of this work gets its own place on the palette of imagination until “Pale Blue”, which closes the album with a slightly different mood.  Decelerating, it dulls the tones like  a cozy refuge.  kaRIN’s voice encloses a sonic prism of sensation, between the beauty of a snow-crystal and a mysterious sensuality.

kaRIN and Statik are architects of complex songs, conceived as micro-worlds made of sounds.  They write incredibly intelligent, and enjoyable music.  Collide offers a very accurate production in all details, including the beautiful lyrics and imagery.
