Floridian sludge metallers Hollow Leg have announced they’ll reissue their 2010 full-length debut, Instinct, through Argonauta Records. The CD of the four-piece’s first outing has been gone for some time, and with the release earlier this year of the follow-up, Abysmal (review here), Hollow Leg showed a penchant for atmosphere that stomped in time with their crushing tones.Instinctwas a bit simpler in its intent — not surprising for a debut –but positively vicious nonetheless, as the stream of the album below can testify.
Cool to see the album coming out again and glad to have an excuse to post it for anyone who may have missed it up to this point. Hollow Leg get down with some heavy shit. Third track “The Return” is a particular favorite off this one, if you’re looking for a place to start. Nothing quite like a solid bit of death boogie:
Hollow Leg to re-release ‘Instinct’ on Argonauta Records!
U.S. sludge monsters HOLLOW LEG will have a worldwide re-release of their album “Instinct” under the flag of ARGONAUTA Records. The band, a duo now quartet, is an enormously toned groove engine hailing from the highways between Deland and Jacksonville, Florida. Their first full length, Instinct, as a duo of guitar and drums from late 2010 and released independently (now completely sold-out), was an action blown forth by their inherent and creative strengths housed within its lyrics and riffs. Since their incarnation as a duo, Hollow Leg has held live performances akin to Sleep and Eyehategod cooperatively steering a runaway freight train through the center of a volcano. Instinct will be again available February 2014 for a full new life thanks to the exclusive digi-sleeve packaging by the label and the worldwide release. Just wait for a massive assault of slow head-banging music!
