EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Get Science Fiction with Hollow Earth’s “Convergence In Recollection”

Last week, I told you all about the interesting tensions which make up Hollow Earth’s Dead Planet. This expansive and powerful album, resting on a strongly fleshed out science fiction concept, channels the dynamic between metalcore and stoner metal. However, as with any review, I couldn’t tell you about every single thing…

56 – Feeling of Weight ft. A Sense of Gravity

Hey, we have guests this week as well! Namely Brendon Williams and C.J. Jenkins from A Sense of Gravity! We talk about the upcoming album Atrament, how they got to this point, and what it takes to make progressive metal. There’s obviously more to it, so find out for yourself! Then we talk about news items, including the upcoming System of a Down album, Cyclamen’s cover of Linkin Park, the new In Flames album, Betraying the Martyrs, the Ned Flanders themed band Okilly Dokilly, the “incredible” Pain of Salvation artwork, new Behold the Arctopus (also Indricothere), Khonsu, the brother band of Keep of Kalessin, Eagles of Death Metal and the Bataclan, Oathbreaker’s Audiotree session, Hollow Earth, and this dank playlist. In the cool people section we discuss potential movie of the year Arrival. Enjoy!

Hey! Listen to Hollow Earth!

Fucking hardcore. It’s great. It’s crunchy, chaotic, and beautifully ugly. It’s ready to knock out your teeth with one well-aimed fist and send you sprawling into a bloody heap on the ground. You just can’t beat the likes of Converge, Trap Them, or Great American Ghost; they’re just too good at what they do. But when I come across a hardcore band that can go toe-to-toe with any of those latter bands, I pay attention. Dearborn’s Hollow Earth is one of these bands, with a sound that is surprisingly singular in a scene full of bands that can sometimes lack a real musical identity, and a host of incredibly talented musicians behind it all.
