To lump Quebec’s Hollow in with melodic death metal seems like a short-sell. Truly, this band has many more facets to their sound, not excluding black metal, symphonic metal, or thrash. That’s why I’m just going to go ahead and call them extreme metal. Actually, really fucking good extreme metal!
But you can decide for yourself when you listen to Hollow’s debut album, Mordrake. The album was just released last week, on May 30th, but the band has since made the album available to stream on YouTube. Sincerely, you need to check this band and this album out; there’s no doubt that it will surprise you.
Hollow is also taking an active approach:
Here is Mordrake for all to enjoy! Listen, comment, and share because nothing is worth more to us than your opinions.
That is possibly the best part about living in our technological age, that is having the ability to interact with the people who make the stuff we like.
