Collapse Official Album Playlist.
Collapse – I Don’t Care What You Say – Vinyl Single:
Collapse is a Death Metal band from Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. Our first album Destroying by Design was released on Great White North Records / The End Records /Sonic Unyon in 2006. Shortly after the albums release the Great White North Records end closed and the album went out of print but is still in circulation and is available in stores on the internet.
The second Collapse album was a demo ep titled Mechanisms of Oppression recorded in 2007 and released in 2008 after the release of Destroying by Design. The demo was originally intended to be sent to labels after Great White North Records closed and our distribution with The End Records / Sonic Unyon ended. The original format of the demo ep was supposed to be 100 copies in a clear poly bag, hand numbered with a sticker of the cover artwork included inside and was to be sent to record labels but was cancelled. The artwork and lyric sheet images for this release are floating around on the internet but this release was unfortunately cancelled and is not available. The demo ep was then released in jewel case format and not sent to labels and is also still available for sale on the internet, after this the demo album was scrapped.
After this point we had several offers from other labels and people wanting to work with us on our first full length album Collapse-Collapse but we decided to not sign with any other labels and release the album’s ourselves on our own label Forward Regression Records. Releasing the albums on a different label would have put us back in the same situation that we were in with Great White North / The End Records /Sonic Unyon and although our albums would have been available at the time in stores like the deal we had through The End Records / Sonic Unyon for Destroying by Design we would have been limited in our options for future reissues of the albums as we would have been under contract with other labels and distribution companies for the releases. Plus, there was a large financial expense we would have had to put out to release the albums there and we would have lost money on the initial releases.
Instead we decided to hang on to the music rights of our albums and not release them through an outside label so that we could do what we want with them for future reissues and not be under contract to an outside label. This way we have maintained the rights to our albums and can do whatever we want with our music and are releasing them through our own label Forward Regression Records.
What this means is that our albums are not in the same stores as other Death Metal bands like our first album Destroying by Design currently is and our second demo album Mechanisms of Oppression would have been but they are still available for sale in other places on the internet.
In 2011 we reissued our first album Destroying by Design which was remastered with bonus tracks on Forward Regression Records and also re-recorded and released the ep Mechanisms of Oppression which is the official version on Forward Regression Records. We also released our first full length album Collapse-Collapse and our second double full length album Sustainability all on Forward Regression.
These four albums on Forward Regression Destroying by Design, Mechanisms of Oppression, Collapse and Sustainability were also released on Vinyl lp in 2015 on Forward Regression Records.
Currently the CD and LP versions of these releases are out of print.
Between 2012 and 2016 Collapse made several recording sessions during the writing for the new albums Say No To World Peace, Corporate Sanctions and The Fall of America which will be the Fourth Full Length Album and is currently in pre-production.
The third full length album Say No to World Peace and Ep Corporate Sanctions are currently in the final stages of production and will be released very soon in the near future on Forward Regression Records.
Material from the other recording sessions from 2012-2016 never made it to the current albums in production but we may release the material as a double compilation album in the future. The material includes songs from the writing process of our new albums that were scrapped and also material that we thought might end up being ep’s and 7 inches but we were too busy with the new albums and never released it. The recording sessions also include a re-recording of the original Destroying by Design album with our current line up. So we may be putting this out on a Two CD Compilation instead which will be out no sooner that late 2018 or in 2019.
All these albums will be released on our own label Forward Regression Records.
When the new albums are released soon in the near future they will be put out as free digital versions first and then will be printed in early 2018 and available for purchase at that time.
The first four releases Destroying by Design, Mechanisms of Oppression, Collapse and Sustainability are currently out of print and available only as a free digital download but will be be printed and reissued on Compact Disc hopefully in the first half of 2018. No date set yet for vinyl lp releases or reissues on vinyl lp of the first four albums.
Collapse was formed by Lead Guitarist and Vocalist Jason MacKenize and currently bass and drums are being done by Riley Davis and Anderson Richards from the California band Infinitency who will also have their first album out soon “Worshipping the Throne of Infinitency” and are also releasing a two song CD single called “Enslavement of the Holy Angels” also out soon on Forward Regression Records.
Prior to Collapse Jason MacKenzie has done demos with ex-Inner Thought (Dwell / Witchhunt Records) whose members have played in Lethal Presence which was members of Sacrifice as well as Slaughter / Strappado from Toronto, Canada.

Metallica – “Helpings Hands” released this month is the new acoustic live album from Metallica and is a mix of acoustic versions of Metallica songs as well as acoustic cover songs of artists like Nazareth, Bob Seger and Deep Purple.
This is great live Metallica album and guaranteed to be a 9+ out of 10 for any Metallica fan. The record features great acoustic versions of Metallica songs like Nothing Else Matters, The Unforgiven and Bleeding Me.
The record also has alternate acoustic versions of songs like Disposable Hero’s which may not appeal to all fans which sound like a different version of the same song, there is a somewhat alternate version of The Four Horsemen which is a stand out track on this record.
The acoustic version of The Four Horsemen is probably one of the best songs on the album and gives the song a real mainstream feel to it with some alternate sounding sections.
This is a guaranteed favorite album in your Metallica music collection, get one today!

Crith Ungol are streaming their first new song since their 1991 album “Paradise Lost”.
“‘Witch’s Game’ was forged for the upcoming animated movie Planet Of Doom. Since we reunited in 2015, there was always a question if we would release new material. It was always on the top of our minds, and when approached to write a song that would be featured in this amazing movie, we agreed. We had already been working on songs for our 5th studio album and this was a perfect opportunity to dip our hooves back in the lake of fire! We are all very excited about the band’s future and hope you like this sampling of what we have been brewing in our secret lair!”
