     With their full length album ‘All Sights Affixed, Ablaze’ due out on November 18th to follow up their 2013 debut EP ‘Scavenger’. Barrie, ON black death band IDOL OF FEAR has stepped into the mosh pit withNefariousRealm.com to give fans a FREE download of their title track at the following link here.

As previously explained by vocalist and guitarist Austin Myers:

“The title track was penned during the depths of a dark winter. It is a lyrical blend of perseverance, strength, and exertion of the will through frigid existence. Our music has these themes of power and struggle that tend to reoccur, though it naturally ventures into different realms as well.”

Mastered by Tore Stjerna (Watain, Corpus Christi) at Necromorbus Studio and mixed by Jeff Wardell, ‘All Sights Affixed, Ablaze’ features eight crushing tracks that ascend to stand out with force.

Born from the powerful quote from Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 movie Det Sjunde Inseglet (The Seventh Seal) “We must make an idol of our fear and that idol we shall call God.”. Idol of Fear focuses on abstract, sliced melodies paired with upfront aggression and compelling vocal energy. Best defined as undefinable and undeniable, Idol of Fear is the definition of creative freedom.

‘All Sights Affixed, Ablaze’ is now available for pre order at the following linkhere.

Show Dates:

Nov 1 – Barrie, ON The Foxx Lounge w/ Dreamer/Deceiver, Hello Amora, We Were The Fires of Rome, Stigmachine, Like Animals. Tickets and info here.

Montreal’s HOLLOW Post Full Album Stream For ‘Mordrake’; New Music Video ‘Landscape’

L-R – Blake “Blaac” Lemieux (Drums)| Eddy “Snow” Levitsky (Bass)| Jeff “Mott” Macdermott (Vocals) |on table Dave “Cadaver” Gagné (Guitar)

    Unleashing their debut full length ‘Mordrake’ just last week on May 30th, Montreal, QC melodic death metal band Hollow has posted a full album stream on Youtube at the following link.

“Here is ‘Mordrake’ for all to enjoy! Listen, comment and share because nothing is worth more to us than your opinions.” – Hollow

hollow - mordrake 2014 (full album)

‘Mordrake’ is now available on iTunes and Bandcamp with a limited edition Hate T-Shirt designed by Bob Skelton, the acclaimed airbrush artist responsible for the band’s corpse-paint. Produced at Uplift Studios by Kevin Jardine (Slaves On Dope) and co-produced by Dan Lauzon (Entropy) and Hollow, the debut is the follow up to the band’s 2010 EP ‘Cynoptic Eschaton’ and features 12 extreme tracks all recorded with an unique analogue approach. Without the use of any triggers, midi or copy/paste editing, the album showcases live off the floor performances that bring a breath of fresh air into an over-compressed and digital world of today’s recordings. Since 2009, Hollow has been conquering audiences across Québec and Ontario with their unique look and high-energy stage performances, which has seen them perform at festivals such as Heavy MTL and Trois Rivieres Metal Fest plus share the stage with names such as Voivod, Suffocation, Sword, Jungle Rot, Blackguard, The Agonist,1349, Tyr, Orphaned Land, Aborted, Augury and many more.

Hollow comments:

Well, it’s finally the time to unleash our first full-length album MORDRAKE upon the masses and melt your heads with this powerhouse. We slaved over this beauty for a little more than a year now and we fine-tuned every little detail for you to enjoy.

 

 

Get it, put on your headphones, and immerse yourself in the madness, the ecstasy, the chasm of our hearts and souls. Take an hour off from the world and delve into it to experience the pure labor of love we now offer you all.

 

 

We sincerely hope you’ll get your fill of metal from this and that it stays in your musical rotation for a long, long time, for this album is dedicated to you all, without which Hollow would have no reason to be.

 

 

With much satisfaction and pride,

 

 

Snow
CaDaver

Hails!

“Clad in black and painted in ghostly, skeletal white and gray, Montreal’s Hollow is one of North America’s most deceptively original and subversive underground metal acts today. Exploiting the surface aesthetics of black metal, the band surprises with an abundance of musical diversity and depth.” – Metal Underground

 “A primer on how extreme metal ought to sound: adventurous, expansive, daring, and heroic.” – Metal Underground

“Hollow show a lot of versatility and excellent chops on a very promising debut effort.” – About.com Heavy Metal

Mordrake is simply remarkable, one of the most promethean debuts in a long time and certainly within death metal this year, though Hollow have a sound and presence which you cannot confine to a single genre or singular mind-set. A brilliant album from a brilliant band” – Ring Master Review

 

“At first listen, I knew this band was a step ahead of the pack. These guys are tight as hell, and create an intense atmosphere with their brutal approach to metal…For only having one guitarist, they’ve certainly got the right one – this dude shreds!!! Hot damn. And of course, as for vocal delivery, you get it all on this album. Nice high black metal-eque screaming, demonic harmonies, and intense gutteral death metal growls.

 

All of these guys are above average musicians on their own, which is blatantly evident when listening to them play as a band. I would jump at the opportunity to see Hollow play live, and if they’re coming to play near you, I advise you do the same. But more importantly, if you’re a black metal fan, get yourself a copy of Mardrake when it comes out on May 30th.” – Counter Culture Nerd

 

“Mordrake par Hollow. Opus quintessencié annonçant un départ en force pour la formation de Montréal. Voilà ce que dégage le nouvel album de Hollow. Les douze pistes de cet enregistrement forment un tout et entraînent l’auditeur dans un univers à la fois sombre et fascinant. Ce premier album complet était fort anticipé et vaut son pesant d’or…. Que se soit la justesse, la production, la composition, l’ambiance générale, chacun peut y trouver son petit bonheur (pas trop, il faut rester grim) avec Mordrake. Avec une base et un nom très solides, Hollow fait déjà ses preuves et sait montrer qu’il ne peut que continuer d’évoluer pour le mieux. Procurez-vous l’album et allez voir une performance live du groupe; vous n’allez pas vouloir arrêter de les encourager!” – Musik Universe

“Hollow nous donne ici un album complet, très ambiancé, progressif, heavy et lourd mais à la fois mélodique et complexe.  Pour un première album, Hollow a mis la barre haute, voire même très haute, que ça sois du côté des ambiances ou des cœurs éparpiller ici et là dans toute les pièces de l’album ou bien de tous les instruments réunis, on as le droit ici a des compositions de haute qualité.” – Quebec Metal

“Orchestration majestueuse.  Un piano nous proposant une belle déferlante de notes.  Riff heavy speed et voix alternant le death et le black comme si Fleshgod Apocalypse avait laissé une trace de souffre de son passage sur le nouveau continent.  Break orchestral et solo de guitare très technique et rapide.  Ca décoiffe !” – Muzik Injection
