preview - review by dalia "gryphon_spirit" di giacomo____
Apocalyptic Death. 'Cause Collapse 7 are very dark, menacing, with thunderous blasting drums and strings played with care. Doom and Black attitude are included in their music full of heaviness with calibrated brutality and calibrated attacks. Collapse 7 are more "bone-breakers" with impending melodies than torture killers, they evoke a sense of abyss and gravity. A Melodic Death with a certain hybridization from Classic Death to Black for all who appreciate extreme styles with a certain solemn immediacy without many complications but with melodic contents, much rhythm and intensity.
Collapse 7 are pure menace. I don't know if the name of the band has something to do with the collapse of the building 7 of the WTC complex. Disputable thing cause,
a worrying question still is open: did the building 7 collapse as a consequence of the well known disaster of the two towers of the same complex, or did it collapse through a controlled and induced order? Whatever the
inspiration of the name can be , maybe only related to the musical characteristics of their Death, Collapse 7 are a "new" entity in the world of Death. Simply cause they are able to combine the melodic attitude of Kataklysm, and a bit of their
Shadows and Dust drumming, together with Swedish Classical and much of Doom-like menacing attitude, with a good contribution of Black tendencies.
Growlings that are mighty, linear and solemn, "granitic", act like a ever-lasting menhir among an energetic, pushing
, blasting music with melodious inserts, whose weight can be
lethal if it should really "collapse" on you. Maybe that's why Collapse 7 define their compositions as Apocalyptic Death.
Collapse / are featuring in their line up Mike Gröger (Hollenthon) and
Mario Klausner (ex Belphegor and ex Pungent Stench) and this debut album
from them is conceived with much care and, as far as i know, or better said ,
as far i can presume reading their discography, it is not based on
previous tracks of demo's MC and CD. Therefore In deep Silence should
represent a full new creative debut: not an usual thing nowadays. And
such a very positive one!!
And we start with fast rhythmic aggressiveness with Infernal Apocalypse, riding a fast galloping with a succession of walls of cadenced riffs supported by a blasting drumming that makes a great effect without being disturbing. The Death and Black attitude is smoothed by that kind of doom-y veil that makes everything less thorny and more bone-breaker.
