Collide: Vortex
Release Date: 2004
Label: Noiseplus Music

Vortex: features remixes of original songs by Collide appearing initially upon Chasing the Ghost (CD 2000) and Some Kind of Strange (CD 2003), both albums available via the NoisePlus Music catalogue, plus three new covers of songs originally recorded by other music artists: Front Line Assembly; Adam and the Ants; Love and Rockets.

Somewhere, spinning softly in a remote corner of this universe, molten musical gears, deftly manipulated by euphoric young gods, serenade Seraphina who with razor sharp angelic vocals reciprocate, giving rise and momentum to the Vortex drawing tempestuously deep down into a dense crease of temporal space all that matters.      Slithering inside the Vortex, cryptic audio interference strips away the epithelial layers of all things, predatorily clinging, that beg you to believe; revealing, at last, the psychosomatic symmetry of inexpressible beauty restless beneath the skin.

Awaken now; plug-in and download a symphonic journey through this Vortex of preconscious sensation into the great expanse of auto-erotic experiences as yet envisioned only within the ecstatic mind's-eye-collective of a lunatic asylum.
