Collide

Described as "Beauty with an Edge",

COLLIDE merges industry and passion within swirling layers of sound and emotion.

The name COLLIDE was chosen as it seemed to represent the clashing and melding of styles into a powerful whole.
The coming together of two different entities.

The primary core of the L.A. based duo is Statik and kaRIN. Statik is responsible for all of the sound orchestrations and overall production. kaRIN takes care of the vocals and lyrics.

Meaningful lyrics and alluring hypnotic vocals combine with an aural sculpture to form an expirience
in listening that manages to defy categorization. “ I think the reason why our sound is different is because we do not approach music in the traditional way. We don’t really play music, we try to create sound scapes--layers of depth and emotion.”

Ultimately, we just wanted to make the kind of music that we wanted to hear, explains the duo.

Two Headed Monster

Two Headed Monster

Release Date: 2008

Collide return once again...luring you into their deep dark smoky den.
Two Headed Monster hits with a slam. The alchemical blend that they concoct feels dark and surreal, sensual and twisted...a pure delight for the senses. Your body and soul suspended, you are absorbed into their world. It’s not a bad place to be. In fact, you may want to exist there forever.

There’s plenty of evidence here that the years of collaboration and exploration have altered Collide and thrown open their sound as they continue to evolve. As you’ll hear, Two Headed Monster is anything but insular. Danny Carey of Tool makes a return engagement adding his thunderous drums and Dean Garcia from Curve also lends his bass.

The Secret Meeting

The Secret Meeting

Release Date: 2007

Otherworldly Beautiful Noise

The Secret Meeting is a collaboration between kaRIN & Statik of the band Collide, who have achieved underground cult status, and Dean Garcia of Curve fame.

Ultrashiver, their debut release, is an intoxicating ride through modern alternative music – at turns sleek, sensual, emotive, chilling, surreal, aggressive, detached, but never less than engrossing. This release is delicate and menacing, noisy and beautiful, and sure to penetrate hearts and resonate in the minds and souls of the listener.

Echoes of Collide and Curve can be heard in these grooves, of course, but The Secret Meeting takes on a life and personality of its own.
