Bandleader Andreas Stoltz kündigt für den 26. November “Tower”, das vierte Album der Band an und streamt den Song ‘The Tower‘ als Visualizer. Musiklaisch befinden sich HOLLOW wieder irgendwo im progressiven Metal/Rock Bereich der mit Power, MeloDeath und Thrash Elementen angereichert ist.
Andreas Stoltz erzählt:
“The relating bit is important, since art – regardless of form – is a meeting of emotions and ideas. It needs to find something to resonate within the person who takes part in it. When asked, I find it hard to describe the music, but it’s metal. It has distorted guitars, double bass drums and harks back to bands like Judas Priest and Queensryche. But there is also quite a bit of contemporary metal on Tower. Since this is a concept album with the ambition of conveying a story, listening to it as a whole is encouraged. I hope you can find something that resonates with you on it. Hopefully, HOLLOW’s fans will be able to trace today’s music back to Modern Cathedral and Architect of the Mind. I’ve made an effort to keep it as straightforward and simple as possible. I think most fans will have no trouble recognizing it as HOLLOW.”
