Collision Process - Metal / Progressive Rock , UK (E92)

About: Collision Process , extremly cool and talented metal band from Birmingham. 

"In the short time that Collision Process have been together, they've already been making waves around their West Midlands home and beyond. The band's self-produced debut EP showcases their ability to craft challenging yet accessible music within the metal genre. Ferocious, odd-metre rhythms are seamlessly combined with infectious melodies and solid grooves throughout each of the disc's 4 songs.
Early in the band's career, the EP tracks led them to victory in Total Biker FM's "TBFM Factor" competition against over 130 other unsigned rock and metal bands, getting voted to the top by listeners tuning in to the show. They have also received airplay from several other radio shows, including Top Rock Radio and The Metal Gods Rock Show on Radio Teesdale.
Having hit the live scene for the first time in June 2010, fan attendance has grown steadily with each show. In their first year on the circuit, the band have already supported Romeo Must Die and The Defiled (Best New Band nominees at Metal Hammer's Golden God awards) during their 2011 tour. They have also appeared at this year's Glastonbudget open-air festival in Leicestershire, attended by around 10,000 people.
In the immediate future, Collision Process aim to extend their reach to a wider audience, further advancing their reputation around the live circuit beyond their home territory, and continuing to promote the EP as well as their new digitally released single 'Emperors'."

1). What is the best time of the day for you to compose your music?
It tends to be either myself or Jonny (guitarist/vocalist) who gets the ball rolling on a new song, and personally I think my best ideas come out either at 3 AM, or in the shower. One day I might try showering at 3 AM just to see what happens. I rarely start composing while actually playing my bass though - it tends to begin as a rhythmic or melodic idea in my head, and I usually don't worry about how to physically play it until afterwards. It's been the source of a few headaches in the rehearsal room, but if it sounds good we just man up and learn it.

2). If you could choose, in what country and in what century would you like to live?
I can't speak for all 5 of us in the band, but as for myself I'm very happy in the here and now. I think it's fair to say that it's been quite a tumultuous time for the music industry over the past few years, but it seems to be finding its feet again - not least by finally embracing what the Internet has to offer. Artists are flourishing in a lot of new and interesting ways, and I'm excited for what the future holds.

3). What is your favourite meal?
A medium rare steak. I don't even care what else you put with it, as long as it's a damn good slab of beef. Apart from that, I believe all 5 of us are fans of a good curry.

4). If you were a writer, what would be the main idea of your book and what would you name it?
I'd write an educational book for drummers, on how to not be a complete pain in the balls. It's a pretty tall order that relatively few drummers seem to achieve (we got off quite lightly, all things considered), but it's worth a try.

5). You had a million dollars and only 24 hours to spend it, what would your actions be?
It's gonna sound boring, but probably something sensible like a house. I'd definitely keep some aside to spend on new gear and studio equipment though.
