HOLLOW EARTH + Decibel



Hollow Earth has offered up "The Reclamation," the opening track off its new album, Silent Graves. "The Reclamation" is streaming exclusively via Decibel Magazine, here.

As Decibel's Shawn Macomber puts it: "If you're looking for some doom-y metallic hardcore nastiness, rising Michigan badasses Hollow Earth are here to oblige."

Silent Graves is out November 11th on Panic Records, the label founded by Timm McIntosh of Seattle hardcore royalty Trial. Silent Graves was produced by Andy Nelson (Harm's Way, Weekend Nachos) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, Nails).

A recent review from MetalSucks bestowed these words on the album: "In the vein of Converge, Nails, and Enabler... To call it 'a scorcher' and/or 'a ripper' would be to undersell."

Hollow Earth embarks on a massive US tour this week.
