We’ll hang our heads in shame and sorrow for the price that must be paid by the young of the coming dawn. “

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. 2012 saw the release of the debut LP on Aborted Society Records, Burden of Beast. Sabe joined on second guitar in 2016. 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 NWOBHM. Whether it be brutal, passionate or furious, Age of Collapse have carved their own niche and sound into the hardcore genre.
