WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
“After a while of good music and alcohol, we waited with anxiety the presentation of Totem, this band shook the place with charisma, metal, and excellent performance, the bassist didn’t care that he was injured, they played incredibly. A lot of creativity and a lot of blood came out of the drummer’s mouth that impressed everyone. This touch was very curious about the mix of styles, we saw from punk, to latin metal and a very short dj. I’m finally going to an event where they didn’t exist the labels or the reason for the style of each one, it only united us the taste for music. It was worth the trip…” Bruxsa “Urbe” Caracas, Venezuela
