Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Exclusive Q&A With Kollaps

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Kollaps.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

KOLLAPS: Kollaps is a band that is often referred to as post-industrial – I actually do not understand what that means but I’m fully conscious that we’re a band that is indeed related to industrial music.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

KOLLAPS: A wide variety of authors, musicians, artists as well as the world around me – various events, my surroundings, and ideas generally influence me more than sounds or bands. I’m not much of a musician in terms of classical training and so I tend to invest more in emotions and ideas rather than musical ideas, so even if I hear something that I like, the limitations of my ability to create music means that it’s difficult for me to replicate these inspirations so I don’t tend to cite other artists. I tend to like a lot of romantic music and mixing that with various elements of tragedy.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

KOLLAPS: Our latest release is called “Until The Day I Die.” It is a self-written, self-produced, and self-mixed album that Kollaps will release through the Cold Spring Records. You can listen to excerpts from the album and make preorders at www.coldspring.co.uk.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

KOLLAPS: Ringing ears and lustful nightmares afterwards.

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band in 5 years?

KOLLAPS: We will still be at war with the world.
