Brussels-based producer Macgray returns with a second captivating album Collapse, to be released on 13 April 2023.
Collapse tells the story of living species (human, animal, or extra-terrestrial), civilizations, planets, and the universe... the path from creation to nothingness, how the small and big elements of the universe all exist through birth and death.
The album includes two main parts of four tracks and a pivotal song in the middle. The first part evokes the birth with Origins, the apogee of the nature with Forest and the great discoveries with Neon. The fifth track hints at the second part, chaos and destruction rush into the Breach. Futile resistance and useless denial through Uprising and Backbone do not allow the escape from the inevitable Collapse.
Collapse is Macgray's most complete work to date. Between warm, organic sounds and colder, more dramatic themes, this album presents a captivating blend of acoustic instruments and synthesizers with a symphonic dimension.
