Collapse were born in 2007 in Florence but stabilized themselves in 2009 after several changes in their line-up.
Just from the very first trials the band bagan writing their first piece called "Speed Metal From The Grave", followed shortly by "Roma a Mano Armata" inspired by the eponymous film by Umberto Lenzi.
The idea of the quintet is clear: to propose a direct and violent thrash metal contaminated with some hard-core influences.
In 2010 began a very active season for Collapse full of gigs with important names of the italian undergound scene.
Following the path already mapped by Emilio the band completed two other songs called "The band of Mexcal" and "Terminator" and in late 2010 Collapse started recording at the 7studio. On March 2011 the band released their first demo/EP called "A mano armata".
