Out today: HOLLOW EARTH - Parting Remains

The new Hollow Earth EP, Parting Remains, is out today on Good Fight Music.

Listen here:

Buy here, along with Good Fight's vinyl release of Hollow Earth's latest full-length, Silent Graves:

Recorded by Tad Doyle, frontman of '90s Seattle figureheads Tad, and mixed and mastered by Greg Thomas of Misery Signals, Parting Remains sees Hollow Earth slow down, space out, and conjure up its most powerful songs to date. The Detroit-area band, featuring two former Shai Hulud dudes, tours this spring with Unearth, Ringworm, and more.

"Hollow Earth push their metallic hardcore a few steps further into legit metal territory with this three-song EP... Seething exigency of monolithic riffs... Abounding with Isis-like passages..."

"The crushing new EP from Hollow Earth... Heavier than a steamroller, at once hideously ugly and gloriously melodic."

"The midwesterners never lacked the ability to break necks and start pits, but there was something around the edges that showed a real thirst for something different, with flashes of doom and melody... Hollow Earth have extended their sound far beyond past releases, into much fuller, more nuanced territory. Recorded by legend Tad Doyle, the band has become a plodding, melodic beast..."
