To make it not so simple, their sound may be described as rock driven music, with heavily atmospheric guitars and melodies, a solid rhythm section that makes you want to move and powerful vocals that make you feel. The Hollow is a rock band that transcends the genre by combining a wide range of musical influences with a strong sense of songwritingâ€”developing a sound that's both commercially and artistically viable.
Formerly known as The Meathooks, The Hollow is an Independent Artist from the NY/NJ metro area currently seeking record label and/or management representation. Under The Meathooks name, the band released their first full length album in 2008 titled No End in Sight receiving both press and radio play being featured in: The Star Ledger, The Aquarian Weekly, The Observer Tribune, Winter X Games, 105.5 WDHA, 106.3 G Rock, 101.9 WRXP and The Morristown Music Watch. The Aquarian reviewed the album with an overall rating of â€œSolidâ€ describing their sound as â€œA potent blend of rock, funk and blues rounded out with ambient guitars and an overall feeling of floatiness, is one that instantly draws you in until youâ€™re hooked!â€
