Inside Hollow
Through the Eyes of Deception (self-released)

By: Mike SOS

Hard rock is often done wrong, as too many times bands that play the style of music fail to carve out their own identity and instead combine two or three band's sounds and form a new hybrid rather than a unique sound. Inside Hollow thankfully isn't one of those bands, as a bevy of influences from Fuel to Anthrax can be heard on the New Yorker's six-track release. From the twin guitar attack smacking you in the face to the well-suited vocals which retain presence without going over the top to the steady yet solid rhythm section working hard when laying down the weighty grooves, these guys have swerved far away enough from the generic rock band motif while still pumping out melodic riffs and memorable hooks like "Falling Down" and "Envy". With the catchiness to hit the radio and the heaviness to satisfy the hard rock crowd, Through the Eyes of Deception gives modern hard rock music the swift kick in the ass it desperately needs.
