The U.K.'s Godflesh is second to none when it comes to the marginal sub-genre of Heavy Metal music known as Industrial Metal. They are the undisputed kings in that department and no other band has shaken their grip on the throne.
Since 1999, the Norwegian act called Dimenzion: Psychosphere have tried to inject their input into the Industrial Metal genre. Collapse is their second studio album and happily there's more to be found in their sound than just lifeless and monotone industrial noises that tend to leave many of us cold at the end of the day.
Collapse is a very groove-laden, angst-riddled, melodic and nicely atmospheric Industrial Metal album, the kind of Industrial Metal I feel at home with. In fact, one can find some nuances from other styles of Metal in Dimenzion: Psychosphere's sound as well; Thrash, a bit of Doom, some Alice in Chains and just plain Metal. All of these aforementioned elements are used well making Collapse an entertaining package of Industrial Metal. There's a cohesive and elegant feel on this record that keep things at an interesting level and gives it the push that it needs to enjoy a longer run.
Collapse is an absolutely refreshing record and does not follow any current trends. It showcases Norway as a country of different musical opportunities when it comes to Metal music. Remember, there's more than just grim Black Metal in Norway.
