Conquering audiences across Québec and Ontario with their unique look and high-energy stage performances since their inception in 2009, Montreal, QC based melodic death metal band Hollow are proud to announce the official release of their debut full length ‘Mordrake’ set to be unleashed on May 30th. 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 a unique analogue approach towards extreme metal. Recorded 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.
Vocalist Mott comments:
“An offering of symphonic black metal, with origins and inspirations planted firmly in death and thrash, we are proud to release “Mordrake”, the fruit of our passion, dedication and hard work we were challenged with over the last year. Using an old school approach towards modern extreme metal to give the record a more straight to the point, early nineties vibe from today’s digital era, we feel the album is direct, fast, heavy and powerful with a melodic background, merging influences and keeping the audience attentive and entertained. Simply put, there is something on “Mordrake” for every music aficionado out there. “
Hollow has shared three tracks online with fans from the release, which can be heard at the following links below.

“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 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

February 7th will see the band join Blind Race, Asleep Behind the Flame, Bike Thiefs at the Bovine Sex Club for an ear bursting assault of infectious melodic rock, then later that month on February 28th, the band will be stripping down (not in the nude) to an acoustic set at Drum n’ Flats where they will be joined by the Waxmen and guests.
Feb 7, 2014 – Toronto, ON – Bovine Sex Club w/Blind Race, Asleep Behind the Flame, Bike Thiefs – $8 (Breached set at Midnight) – Event Page
Feb 28, 2014 – Toronto, ON – Drum n Flats – w/ WAXMEN and guests (Acoustic show)
BREACHED‘S EP ‘Left Behind’ was released on October 22nd and was recorded in between Canadian and US dates during the spring and summer months of 2013 while the band toured to promote their second EP ‘Revolution Sessions’, an acoustic version of their debut EP with a bonus stripped down cover of Alice In Chains’ ‘No Excuses’, which was also joined by a series of in-studio music videos.
Creating an alluring blend of melodious, metal-tinged rock ‘n roll, it didn’t take long for Breached to start winning over fans with their live shows and five-song self-titled EP. The band’s tight harmonies and nail-hitting screams combined with overdriven guitars, intricate tempos and powerful lyrics provide a unique blend that audiences can’t seem to get enough of.

Track Listing: Left Behind
1. Left Behind (4:04)
2. Piece By Piece (2:59)
3. All We Need (3:09)
4. Brighter Days (3:51)
5. Here With Me (3:17)
Total Time: 17:20
“The Left Behind EP, is the latest offering from Canadian hard rockers Breached, and man it is quite impressive…Disc opener, “Left Behind”, works off a killer riff and features overdriven guitars and a captivating chorus which led me to be immediately sucked into the EP. The remaining four songs follow suit and are solid hard rock tunes in their own right, but at only 17 minutes long, I found this EP to be a bit of a tease.” – Pure Grain Audio
“Breached really delivers on the goal of making emotionally charged music. Vocalist Bobby Noakes has an incredibly powerful voice as it soars over the heavy distortion-laden guitars and precise explosions of the rhythm section.” – Rock Freaks
“a hugely enjoyable miniature peek into the potentially huge future which lies ahead of this quartet.” – Planet Mosh
““Left Behind” is well-structured, well-written and well-executed in every way! The band consists of 4 incredibly talented musicians: Bobby Noakes (Vocals), Mike Diesel (Guitar), Ryan Alexander (Bass) and Neil Uppal (Drums). You can tell, just from listening to a few seconds of their music, that they are masters of their crafts!” – New-Transcendence
The title track had me singing along on my second listen and swaying along to the chorus, before launching into Piece By Piece with a more upbeat, punky sound with a few good screams mixed in, and the feel continues with All We Need. The passion that has gone into the writing and production is evident, and when the tempo drops for the next track, that energy is transferred to a different frequency and you really feel the lyrics of Brighter Days. This is for me where the vocal talent of Bobby Noakes shines the most, a real arms in the air song.” – Wyrd Ways
The Canadian lads of BREACHED are quite an interesting band. Their songs caught my heart with their melodic and easy to listen attributes. You can of course label them, but I think that it wouldn’t be wise. Noakes has fantastic voice and show a great promise. Any Rock fan or Metalhead should grab this one, this much more than to the open minded.“ – Metal Temple
