Collide

A male/female duo from Los Angeles consisting of Statik and kaRIN, Collide chose their name to represent the collision of techno and industrial, breakbeats with samples, ambient and noise, plus the Gothic vocals that influenced them. Together, they blend macho angst with a softer, ethereal aggression.

While Statik had played trumpet for a few years during school, most of his musical training came from spending many months experimenting with samplers and computers. He also attended a music/engineering school in Los Angeles that helped him land his first studio job. Statik's first solo project was called Statik: Machines.

Once Statik and kaRIN met, they knew they were on the same musical path. kaRIN had sung spontaneously and consistently since a child, and the lyrics she created for Collide express unconscious, flowing emotions. They self-released their first cassette demo, The Crimson Trial, in 1995, and followed this with their first full-length album, Beneath the Skin, a German import, in 1996. The Re-Constriction label released the remix album Distort one year later, including the favorites "Pandora's Box" and "Violet's Dance." Compilations and singles became a strong means of expression for the duo, who sang or worked on dozens of them and remained a studio band. After five years without a new album, the Next Level label released Chasing the Ghost in June 2001 with a few additions to the lineup: Tim Pierce (guitar), Fritz Heede (sitar), Kevin Kipnis (guitar), and Monica Richards (vocals), plus Statik still in charge of the production, engineering and mixing. ~ Eleanor Ditzel, Rovi

Tempted (conjure one mix) is my fave lol
Funny that I just had mentioned Strawberry Switchblade while writing the below and the next song was from SSB.
I found this band dull and un innovative, unoriginal. Ofra Haza, Shelia Shandra, The Dead Can Dance, Strawberry Switchblade shall I go on and most of these bands were from the late 80's and 90's.
Lucky 13 is one of my favorites for sure!

@juebrien - I'm a bit late to the chat, but I agree with you completely: one of the sexiest songs ever. (Oh, and fyi: if you think this one is sexy, try "What You Are" by Drill.)
One of the sexiest songs ever....
Dis girl can sing!!!!
SEXY song
Great vocals and energy
Sounds like they use Depeche Mode music to their own vocals.
Gotta love Collide :)
Great song
wish i could understand what theyre saying o.o
sounds cool tho
Scimitarmoon 8 8
Sexy!!
heard a song on the covenant soundtrack. one of their songs and bought their new stuff. love it.
Holy crap, I found this group based on the posters from that game too!!
This group reminds me of Kidney Thieves a little bit, I love how they fused Techno and Industrial; almost like a b**tard child.
been along time sense ive heard of this band they lost it on the second album such a shame :/ but im not a dousch like alex here VVV

I don't normally listen to female singers, but the singer's calmness heavily contrasts the heavy beats, and ruins it. It seems better to just ignore the singer and focus on the beats. I mean hell go look up KMFDM if you want to see how to do female vocals and Industrial metal right..

Worth noting that The Secret Meeting was their (awesome) side project with Dean Garcia (previously of Curve) following up Some Kind of Strange. The second half of Some Kind of Strange is some of my favorite music -- it reminds me of Massive Attack (circa Mezzanine), but more deliciously primal. A lot of the remixes (on Vortex and Distort) quash that primal quality, and Two-Headed Monster was noticeably more urbane in lyricism -- so there's a lot of variation in here.
If this random collection of rambling noise with muffled vocals is great?
Then maybe I need to have my head slammed between to trash can lids! Same affect and effect!
Another band thats been around for years I never heard of. Thanks Pandora. Due to the glowing fan reviews below I will give them their own station. I like the cover shot of 'Distort'.
Positively love them
I first became aware of Collide while playing the PC game Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. The nightclubs rendered in the game had the band's posters up on their walls, though their music was not featured in the game. I sought out their music and am glad I did. They are amazing.
interesting. . . o . o so calm...v_v
Do these guyz have ANY bad songs? Like, is it even possible? Everything I've ever heard by them is AMAZING!!
magnificent
Everytime I hear these certain songs, I wonder "who is this?!" and it's always Collide. It is love.
i came across collide on illwillpress . c o m years ago and i've been a huge fan ever since! thanks pandora for putting collide into the music genome project!
you say it's long gone. you are long wrong.
...gets better and better.Brain slidin'
Found them by accident, thanks to illwillpress , I love pink floyd, but in goth mode, tres awesome!
moukeefe
This is my first time hearing collide. Thank you PANDORA for turning me on to AWESOME new music!
W****w, if I wanted to listen to metal I would, but I don't. Get life so you can mind your own business!
Best sounding and most original band since The Cure -- downloaded some freebies they offered and been hooked ever since. Vortex is the best to start with, but they haven't released an album that's not worth getting.
Holy s**t, found this band through their cover of White Rabbit and fell in love instantly.
These guys are wonderful! They're definatly growing on me ...
beautiful, but a bit too slow for me.
a good listen when in the mood though.
Good god willow, get a hobby...
eeeh....you go now!

kaRIN has a beautiful haunting voice. She's also one of the most beautiful and sexy women in the world. Her gorgeous vocal style along with the enigmatic music create a deep atmospheric presence. A+.
I have to agree with Emma that kaRIN is the sexiest woman alive!!!
LOVE this group!
Two Headed monster needs to be added to Pandora. It is by far one of their best
Wow...I just heard kaRIN's speaking voice...my God...it's almost as sexy as her singing voice...incr e d i b l e . She gets my vote for sexiest person ever!!! ;)
Collide is such an astounding band, I love them so much! My favorite is "Wings of Steel".
Collide is brilliant. Every release has been fantastic.
feed me to the lions
I'm attempting to not like this, but I'm failing.....
I love Collide's music, especially Monochrome.

kaRIN is not only a super-talent e d vocalist, but an awesome photographer / a r t i s t as well. I saw her work featured in the late, great Carpe Noctem magazine.
Everytime i hear Razorsharp i wanna bone to it haha
