"Imagine if you will the most sensuous, erotic, hypnotic, twisted and surreal trip into ecstasy you've ever experienced. Now put those feelings into music. Or better yet, slap on some headphones and explore the brilliantly composed world within Collide's fourth full-length release, Two Headed Monster..."-John Voge, Erotic Magazine.
Have you been wondering why it took so long for Collide to release Two Headed Monster? This question, (among others), are in the new interview at Glasswerks.

Todd from the Goatsden sent us this review. Hey, we know it's not exactly Rolling Stone, or Spin...wait..are those magazine around anymore?? We don't know, they just seem to ignore our cds that we send to them. Anyway...Todd from the Goatsden likes Two Headed Monster. Goats love it. Statik's turtles love it. Why not get your own copy now??"
"Two Headed Monster is Collide's best work thus far, and any follower of dark and stylish modern rock should investigate now!"-Goatsden
Corey from Litany (the Skinny Puppy news site) sent us this review he put up recently. Besides the review, you'll find some news on the upcoming Tear Garden release. Thanks again to Cory for helping us out.
"...The electronic and live instrumentation on this album mesh with kaRIN's ethereal voice to form a sound that includes dashes of industrial, goth, glam, and shoegaze yet is altogether new."

We've posted another great review that's come in from the U.K., this one from the Zeitgeist site. It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy. Thanks goes out to Stuart A. Hamilton.
..."It's another fabulous extravaganza in the history of Collide, by far the best darkwave / electro-goth / insert appropriate genre here release of the year, and one of the best albums of the year in any genre you're likely to hear. Go get it now."
Another great review has come in for Two Headed Monster from Morpheus Music, thanks to Paul.
Check out the entire review here.
...it's worth the wait - all of the controlled chaos, the thick catchy riffs, the inventive programming and crepuscular mystique - it's all here only even more well-produced than before."-Paul at Morpheus Music
Review #3 for Two Headed Monster is in from vAlien/DJ Commando LABELLA. Val is from Belarus and was kind enough to translate it into English for us, as our Russian is a bit rusty.
"...this is the most diverse, multi-layer, mature, hard, and complex record of (Collide). Shatteringly beautiful album!" -DJ Commando LABELLA
Collide also made it to the cover of Mexican print magazine Gotica (in last months issue)
There is also a photo spread inside and a feature interview. (We're still (as of 9/2008) trying to get our own copy of this magazine, so somebody send us one!!.)

Here's an excerpt from the article...
"Most people are itching to stereotype a band into a particular Genre, tag it and bag it as it were. There are some bands that I can honestly say are their own genre-they've produced something uniquely bizzarre and surreally sublime. Some say it's all been done: I say not by a long shot. If your interested in hearing music that isn't easily labeled as this or that, I recommend you read on."
