Age of Collapse

Sean – Guitar
Blaine – Bass
Steve – Drums
Xavi – Guitar

Date formed:

2008 saw the formation of Age of Collapse as a San Diego based atmospheric crust band. Two years, a split LP and tour demo later Xavier joined, bringing a second guitar layer to the mix. 2011 saw the release of the debut LP on Aborted Society Records, Burden of Beast. Age of Collapse have crafted a very experimental take on crust; blurring lines and sometimes toppling over into completely different musical realms. Their sound is personified by large, crushing distortion, chaotic tempo changes and haunting, reverb drenched cleans. Fast paced punk inspired riffs meld with harmonizing guitars more traditionally reserved for British new wave of heavy metal bands. Whether it be brutal, passionate or furious, Age of Collapse have carved their own niche and sound into the hardcore genre.
