Collisions (UK) at Staines Hob

On Saturday the Brighton dub ‘n’ metal band ‘Collisions’ made another visit to The Hobgoblin, Staines.

It’s unlikely we will see them back (any time soon) because – quite justifiably – they are about to go galactic – they are already touring with Black Futures; Skindred have chosen them to support them at the BREAKOUT FESTIVAL 2014 Brighton September 27 – and they launch their NXTGENSS EP at London’s Underworld on October 7.

Collisions - overheated rampaging fire tubes of musical power -  like a mechanized howitzers set to auto-cannon mode...

So, at The Hob, we were thrilled by such helter-skelter electric dreams as “Fire Fire” with that throat-busting roar of bass, fierce drums (which actually spun our heads around) and guitars of black tar – that were so furious that they pounded our delirious tendons.

The vocals were rapped out by Olly like Tung Twista with his tail on fire.

The whole thing was as exciting as a fox ripping apart your grandfather’s living room.

We Know The Enemy’ was, if anything, even more powerful.

The strength and vigour made us grimace. As it shoved its full weight into our primary motor cortexes. This song really makes the most of all those transcendentally beefed-up vocals. This was extraordinary – a real treat for all the Staines head-bangers!

The 11-song show ended with the frighteningly heavy “Believe In This” – this overheated rampaging fire tube of musical power was like a mechanized howitzer set to auto-cannon mode.

Pumping, pounding and deadly accurate.

What a show.

Gut-fulls of raw power – cleverly combined with digital breakbeat synth-punk – offering more power than a boiler explosion in a navy dockyard.
