"Hollow Press"

Home Grown
By Serene Dominic

In other matters of change, the group Hollow has sharpened its attack since its earlier recordings, which seemed more adult alternative than the heavy rock presentation it favors now. Perhaps XTRA Sports 910 AM's adoption of two previous crunchers, "Lockness" and "Save Me," as incidental music helped sway that decision. Citing Sevendust and Linkin Park as influences, Hollow might sound to older ears like White Zombie with melodic bursts that are almost like Boston in scope. Singer Ryan Raths' grungy growls on "Grudge" and "Grounded" are pretty great, but he saves his best vocal trick for the end, when his scream approximates a dial-up modem connecting. He even turns out a pretty acoustic ballad, "Walk," with bittersweet piano of the kind that a salaried Roy Bittan surrenders regularly to the Boss. But after three slabs of molten lava, I'm not about to call it "chick rock" and neither should you. (www.hollowmusic.net)

Full on paranoid, intense, insane, terrifying... The music is highly layered, politically charged and complex, but never succumbs to self- indulgence. Every track is tightly-coiled and urgent because, even while they’re trying to broaden your horizons, Hollow is aware of the need to rock hard. This quartet's hyper agitated attack of ripping guitars, pummeling drums and manic vocals might provide shock to your system. Hollow brings a real musicality to the mayhem with the intricate arrangements and interesting dynamics.

Influences include Tool, Staind, A Perfect Circle, Disturbed, Face To Face, Slipknot, Pennywise, Mudvayne, Sevendust, The Doors...and many more...
