In the Hollows notably count current/ex-members of Champion, Ruiner and Pulling Teeth in their roster, but fortunately, they do manage to stand out aside from their alum. It's not hard to guess that they play a brand of well-worn but enjoyable, stuffy hardcore on their debut 7", which remixes and.

In the Hollows notably count current/ex-members of Champion, Ruiner and Pulling Teeth in their roster, but fortunately, they do manage to stand out aside from their alum.

It's not hard to guess that they play a brand of well-worn but enjoyable, stuffy hardcore on their debut 7", which remixes and remasters three of the better songs from their demo. Sure, there's a hint of Ruiner in here, but In the Hollows sound mostly like their own band, doing moderately uptempo fare with a good few frills here and there. They do have Ruiner's misanthropy down pretty well, though, as exhibited by the first few lines in opener "Move Away" ("Move away, / we're not the same. / You don't know me, / you don't know a thing."). More so, this overall reminds me of a sorta more straightforward hardcore take on what Spanish Bombs does (maybe because of the vocals). They even try more complex territory on the multi-structured closer, "The Looking Glass," which takes up all of Side B.

A pretty decent debut, though I bet things will get way better when In the Hollows flex their creative muscle more in the future.

I have just recently starting spending money on music again, and this was one of my first purchases.

Good stuff. Excited for what they do next
