Collapsar "s/t" CD (Escape Artist)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Lafayette, Lousiana's, COLLAPSAR formed in 2002 from the dust trail left by defunct scream-core outfit ICEPICK REVIVAL. X-members Brett Judice (drums) and Stephen Sheppert (guitar) began writing heavy, progressive instrumentals and enlisted the help of guitarist Dave Graeff to help them realize their new ideas. By blending a wide range of influences including progressive rock, metal, hardcore and math-rock, COLLAPSAR forms melodic compositions which combine hard-hitting riffs and subtle, sometimes pensive textural soundscapes. It is this intermingled architecture of sounds that renders each song's direction unpredictable, making each opus an indulgence for listeners who respect strong musicianship and memorable songwriting. After a stellar demo and subsequent self-recorded full-length, Escape Artist Records and COLLAPSAR joined forces to bring their self-titled debut to the masses in the spring of 2005.
