HOLLOW (SWEDEN)


Hollow came to be in the late 90's. The group consisted of Urban Vikstrom (drums), Marcus Bigren (guitars), Tomas Nilsson (bass) and Andreas Stoltz (vocals and guitars). That was the original line-up, and there was never any changes. It all started when Tomas and Andreas did their military service in the same platoon. They shared tastes in music and the idea of forming a band started to grow on them. A couple of years later Hollow released their first effort, a self-titled mini-CD. It received much praise from Asia, but nothing more happened. It was not until they recorded the album "Modern Cathedral" on a small Swedish label, that things started to happen. A copy was sent to German label Nuclear Blast and Hollow was offered a contract. The album M.C. got good reviews and sold reasonably well. The second full-length album was released in '99, "Architect of the Mind". It is a concept album on artificial intelligence and the basic story goes something like this: A scientist goes almost crazy over losing his father and buries himself in work. He finally succeeds in creating an AI, but he never expected this being to be so similar to himself. The album tries to raise questions regarding creation and responsibility for the created, parenthood and religion as well. Hollow is now a solo project of Andreas Stoltz, who in 2009 released the song "Descending" which was written in memory of Midnight, Crimson Glory's vocalist, who died in 2009.
