“Fighting The Monsters” April 8, 2022
For the last few months, Canada’s My Hollow has been teasing their new EP “Fighting The Monsters” with a handful of singles. Now listeners can be satiated with the full stream of the record. My Hollow delivers a hard-hitting product that will leave you wanting more. They have a signature style of structuring each song in an unconventional way making them more interesting and less formulaic.
A cohesive mix of epic riffs interspersed with keyboard melodies and groove, “Fighting The Monsters” is five tracks, each containing its own struggle and perseverance. The main focus of each song was to have its own battle and its own victory. Bassist Sean De Faria shares some of the processes behind the creation of the EP:
“This EP is a pivotal recording for us, we’ve had a lot of these songs for a while, so the writing process wasn’t an issue, but when you get a bunch of adults together and factor in their schedules and personal commitments then things can take a while to materialize. Factor in band member changes and new additions and the process takes even longer and becomes more arduous. For the first time in a while, it feels like we have some traction again, like the fire is back and we have something tangible to offer. This EP is a testament to our determination as a group, as a band, and as brothers. We have a lot more left to offer and this EP is only the prelude to our next chapter.”
My Hollow started via the internet many years ago and has had some lineup changes since then. As they have matured, so has the music and they are excited to share their latest version of themselves with the world. They are suitable for fans of modern metal, especially those with a penchant for Fit For An Autopsy, Gojira, and Lamb of God.
“Fighting The Monsters” is streaming right now via its premiere on NewFuryMedia HERE.
The EP officially releases on Friday, April 8th.
