HOLLOW - "DEAD END KID" (California Hardcore in 2012 + Download Link)

("D.I.Y."; MP3-Download):
Another demo by another (at least totally to me) new band dedicated and sworn to heavy and brutal bulldozer like Hardcore, this time from the sunny California, that I stumbled upon recently a week ago or so when I searched the web for new promising bands. For all what I know (and that's in the case of HOLLOW not that much after all) this is their debut demo release and it's currently only released as an official MP3-Download by the band itself and as usual I will give you the link at the end of this very review here. I will try to keep it short this very time, because I am in a pretty hurry right now. So, okay, here we go: HOLLOW give us at all five songs in about nine minutes and they play some great Tough Guy Mosh Hardcore filled with plenties of devastating and clever arranged and good timed Beatdowns, moshy stop and go moments, very strong songwriting, giant massive guitar walls that add pressure, pressure, pressure and violence over violence, violence, violence and pessure as also for sure brutality and aggression non stopp, a harsh pounding stomping and boiling bass playing, and militant war drums like stunning drumming, all pretty diverse, nicely multi-layered and for sure fucking well-versed. A pretty own identity is also to be recognized already in the case of HOLLOW. Pitfghter Hardcore par excellence!!! Somewhere between I AM REVENGE, xTYRANTx, TERROR and some few UNIT 731. Good lyrics, great artwork and a great heavy bombing production sound. HOLLOW promise truly already a lot and we all can be curious about what will come more in the future by them. Ths stuff is highly recommended by me to you andso check them out asap. Great band!!! HARDCORE!!! FIST!!! (9 of 10 points)
