Hard hitting intelligent rock. Modern enough to be radio friendly, respectful enough to show influences and progressive enough for a well embraced live performance.

Biography

The: “Star City” of “Virginia” is home base for a growing list of musical talent...

The latest to rise above the rest and gain national acclaim is “HollowBody.”

Originally formed in 1997and by late 1999 the band had signed a deal with “L.T.S. Records” (endorsed by Vince Neil & Bad Bones) under the name: “Time After Time.” Soon after, “Melodic Mayhem/ Metal Mayhem Records” caught wind of “T.A.T’s” successes and promptly negotiated a buy-out of the bands agreement with “L.T.S. Records,” signing the band to its second recording contract in less than three years. Unfortunately, by 2003 “Melodic Mayhem Records” would fall short on their obligations, compelling the band to drop them-selves from the “Melodic Mayhem” agreement, reemerging as “HollowBody.” and effectively gaining the interest of veteran artist agency: “DreamWeaver Entertainment Group, Inc.”

Now the world is about to experience this unique musical group from Virginia. Being recognized as a number one contender by many of today's international superstars, “Hollowbody" is currently being sought after by multiple heavy-hitter companies and increasingly gaining the interest of several independent and major labels, realizing their dreams through old school influences and visions of the future that transpose in their music.

With songs like: “-Fail-,” “I AM,” “All for Nothing” and “D.L.A.,” you not only get to see the band from where it has come, but unmistakably where it will be.

“Long live the day when musicians are able to not only play, but showcase the instruments encompassed in their recordings, ever-changing with the times and modernizing their sounds as their band matures. Thus is: “HollowBody.”- Xan Michales, -The Buzz-

Lyrics

"I Am"

Written By: Steve Gross II & Robert Montgomery

I’m the one, who dies,
The one who cries,
The sacrifice for your sins.
I’m the one inside to question life,
I’ll make you think for yourself.

So calice are the ways you’ve been blinded to the chalice,
Accepting of the things you’re told in life.
For every crooked way, there’s a hundred different frays
Encrypting everything, into the straightest line.

Hiding me, symbolically,
Painted fingers point the right direction.

I’m the one, who crawls beyond the walls,
mine eyes blinded by the sun.
Always questioning these things you took from me,
As I lacerate on shards of broken bone.

So calice are the ways you’ve been blinded to the chalice,
So forgiving of the things you’ve learned in life.
For every hundred frays there’s a thousand different rays,
Illuminating paths to a secret life.

Hiding me, symbolically,
Painted fingers point the right direction.

Washed in the blood, blinded by the sun,
Washed in the blood, blinded by the sun,
Washed in the blood, blinded by the sun,
Washed in the blood, blinded by the sun,

Washed in the blood, blinded by the sun,
Painted fingers point the right direction.

-Fail-

Written By: Robert Montgomery, Russell Lee & Eric Bass

Entertain these thoughts of reason,
Given to this way of life.
Open up and stop complaining,
Maybe soon come to realize.

Can’t you see what I’m seeing?
Learn to read between the lines.
Make a turn in a new direction,
See the world through different eyes.
Look away before you’re blinded,
Lose your pride, for you’ll start to swell.
It’s not that we’re all against you,
Turn around, before you… fail

Any man that never listens,
Never fully understands,
If he’s stuck to his own opinions,
A younger man never had a
Chance.

Can’t you see what I’m seeing?
Learn to read between the lines.
Make a turn in a new direction,
See the world through different eyes.
Look away before you’re blinded,
Lose your pride, for you’ll start to swell.
It’s not that we’re all against you,
Turn around, before you… fail

Echoes of the years we’ve passed through,
A different kind of silence between us,
Paints a perfect scene of walking with out you.

Can’t you see what I’m seeing?
Learn to read between the lines.
Make a turn in a new direction,
See the world through different eyes.
Too late, you’re blinded,
You’ve made life a living hell.
And now that we’re all against you,
Look around, you’ve failed…

Caught

Written By: Robert Montgomery / Steve Gross II

Take this knife from my back
All these wound you’ve created
Without hesitation

I fear it’s too late
The wall’s closing in
The tides have gathered to pull me

Under, the waves, I’m drowning
Wish someone save me, from this
I thought I was on your side
Caught in a landslide

Run, try to escape
The pressures of living
Have turned me inside out

I fear it’s too late
The wall’s closing in
The tides have gathered and pulled me

Under, the weight, is crushing
Someone save me, from this
I thought I was on your side
Caught in a landslide

Feeling down, no way out
Burning down, trapped within this

Going down

No matter how I try
No matter what I do
Gravity keeps pulling me

Under, the waves, I’m drowning
Someone save me, from this
I thought I was on your side
Caught in a landslide
