“Pick-up” review of the week: HOLLOW LEG on The Metal Observer
Our choice of the week is the fine review of HOLLOW LEG on TheMetalObserver: “The true charm to Hollow Leg’s approach is that underneath the immense heaviness there is always some type of Sabbathian groove going on. Listen to “The Retun”, for example, as the foot stompin’, fist pumpin’ tempo will not allow you to sit idly by in the corner; you have to get moving. “Grace” imports some actual melody into the mix with an almost desert rock feel to the offering, balancing the grooving rhythm against the sludgy bravado. Instinct is swampy, sludgy, thick and menacing while retaining a catchiness usually only associated with influenza.
