Collapse Under The Empire is an instrumental/post-rock band from Hamburg, Germany. The lineup consists of Martin Grimm (Guitars&Drums) and Chris Burda (Keys/Synthesizer&Drums). They formed in 2007 and released their debut album Systembreakdown (2009) on their own. Most of the songs are alternating between electro-bleeps and powerful guitar explosions; it’s both disturbing and seductive. As with Collapse Under The Empire’s debut EP "Paintball“ they’ve succeeded their specific post rock sound, combining epic guitars with chilled electronic elements and a portion melancholic mood.
