Quit my music promotion to do other tasks, visit my store page at www.dawnforgedcast.com or blog at www.jasonjamesmackenzie.com


To follow Collapse visit our page at Dawn Forged Cast Movie and Comic Book Page.


To follow the heavy metal video share playlist, they are posted on my blog and youtube channel.




That's still updated and I have to restart the pages.


Major Labels in music are having all these "court issues" and "bizarre situations" , now they are having issues releasing artwork on digital streaming due to "copyright claims" from people at their pages when they are not allowed checking.


That means I have to put generic artwork on some of my album covers to release on streaming, scams on the internet write asking for "proof of picture" documents to release your songs but that is not a real event, buying a music release label package does not including a copyright screen from the page owner, that is illegal.


Not jumping ahead on them it could have been an isolated event from one person or a hack, so I have to make some of my artwork generic to release on streaming.


When the metal pages come back later, deathmetal.tv and that I can't support any major label artists and can only with with smaller bands in the Death Metal scene not on major labels.


Plus I am working on a store and busy doing that stuff for a regular position and a comic book store page.


So the band promotion is moving there, then I am just doing smaller acts with mine at the comic book page.


All those other businesses have those legal problems there with all these public SEC rule violations so you can't work there, so now I am taking a break for a bit to do some other work and restart the pages, just check back later.

Collapse is:

Collapse is a Death Metal band from Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. Our first album "Destroying by Design" was released on Great White North Records / The End Records /Sonic Unyon in 2006. Shortly after the albums release the Great White North Records end closed and the album  went out of print but is still in circulation and is available in stores on the internet.

Great White North Records was then acquired by Forward Regression Records and The End Records acquired by BMG Rights Management.

The second Collapse release was a demo ep titled "Mechanisms of Oppression" recorded in 2007 and released in 2008 after the release of "Destroying by Design" on The End Records.

The demo was originally intended to be sent to labels after Great White North Records closed and our distribution with The End Records / Sonic Unyon ended. The original format of the demo ep was supposed to be 100 copies in a clear poly bag, hand numbered with a sticker of the cover artwork included inside and was to be sent to record labels but was cancelled.

The "Mechanisms Of Oppression" sticker from the demo release is now for sale in three sizes at http://www.dawnforgedcast.com/blog .

The artwork and lyric sheet images for this release are floating around on the internet but this release was unfortunately cancelled and is not available. The demo ep was then released in jewel case format and not sent to labels and is also still available for sale on the internet, after this the demo album was scrapped.

After this point we had several offers from other labels and people wanting to work with us on our first full length album "Collapse-Collapse"  but we decided to not sign with any other labels and release the album's ourselves on our own label Forward Regression Records.

Releasing the albums on a different label would have put us back in the same situation that we were in with Great White North / The End Records /Sonic Unyon and although our albums would have been available at the time in stores like the deal we had through The End Records / Sonic Unyon for Destroying by Design we would have been limited in our options for future reissues of the albums as we would have been under contract with other labels and distribution companies for the releases. Plus, there was a large financial expense we would have had to put out to release the albums there and we would have lost money on the initial releases.

All Forward Regression Records releases now available on Digital.

In 2011 we reissued our first album "Destroying by Design" which was remastered with bonus tracks on Forward Regression Records and also re-recorded and released the ep "Mechanisms of Oppression" which is the official version on Forward Regression Records. We also released our first full length album "Collapse-Collapse" and our second double full length album "Sustainability" all on Forward Regression.

These four albums on Forward Regression "Destroying by Design", "Mechanisms of Oppression", "Collapse" and "Sustainability" were also released on Vinyl lp in 2015 on Forward Regression Records.

Currently the CD and LP versions of these releases are out of print.

Between 2012 and 2016 Collapse made several recording sessions during the writing for the new albums "Say No To World Peace", "Corporate Sanctions" and "The Fall of America" which will be the Fourth Full Length Album and is currently in pre-production.

All new Collapse material still in pre-production for release on Digital.

The third full length album "Say No to World Peace" and Ep "Corporate Sanctions" are currently in the final stages of production and will be released very soon in the near future on Forward Regression Records.

Releases delayed because of covid pandemic, still in final pre-production release stage for Digital.

Material from the other recording sessions from 2012-2016 never made it to the current albums in production but we may release the material as a double compilation album in the future. The material includes songs from the writing process of our new albums that were scrapped and also material that we thought might end up being ep's and 7 inches but we were too busy with the new albums and never released it. The recording sessions also include a re-recording of the original "Destroying By Design" album with our current line up and alternate re-mix and demo versions.

Albums still in production on Forward Regression to be released on Digital.

Albums are for sale only now on Digital and Streaming.

Collapse was formed by Lead Guitarist and Vocalist Jason MacKenize and currently bass and drums are being done by Riley Davis and Anderson Richards from the California band Infinitency who will also have their first album out soon "Worshipping the Throne of Infinitency" and are also releasing a two song CD single called "Enslavement of the Holy Angels" also out soon on Forward Regression Records.

Currently in production for Digital release on Forward Regression Records.

Prior to Collapse Jason MacKenzie has done demos  with ex-Inner Thought  (Dwell / Witchhunt Records)  whose members have played in Lethal Presence which was members of Sacrifice as well as  Slaughter / Strappado  from Toronto, Canada.
