HOLLOW EARTH - Silent Graves

Panic Records presents the release of Hollow Earth's debut full-length, Silent Graves. 

Panic Records, the label founded by Timm McInotsh of Seattle hardcore vets Trial, will release Hollow Earth's Silent Graves on November 11th on vinyl, CD, and digital.

From Metro Detroit, Michigan, Hollow Earth was formed in 2011 by vocalist Steve Muczynski and guitarist Mike Moynihan, both ex-members of Shai Hulud. Mike Moynihan is also a current member of recent Century Media signees Enabler.

Hollow Earth's debut full-length Silent Graves was recorded by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recordings (Harm's Way, Weekend Nachos) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails).

Stream new track "World to Come," off Silent Graves, exclusively via MetalSucks. 

In the words of MetalSucks: "In the vein of Converge, Nails, and Enabler... To call it 'a scorcher' and/or 'a ripper' would be to undersell; this is the kind of song that will skin you with jagged rocks and then burn you to a crisp..."

Silent Graves is an album's worth of feral, metallic hardcore, off the same battlefields as Turmoil and Buried Alive, anchored by a grand, apocalyptic weight that hints at a love for Neurosis. Lyrics paint pure, nightmarish accounts of dejection, suffering, and impending doom on both the personal and global levels.

The Silent Graves cover art was created by Jacob Parmentier and Patrick Galvin.

Silent Graves is preceded by the band's debut EP, We Are Not Humanity, released on Panic in 2012.

Hollow Earth embark on a US tour in November
