Hollow Leg are a band from Florida that plays a mixture of psych, sludge, doom and stoner metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Crown" which was released by Argonauta.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile aggressive screams make their presence known on the recording and the riffs bring in the heaviness of sludge while you can also hear elements oh hardcore in the bands musical style.
When solos and leads are utilized they give the music more of a stoner rock vibe and there is also a touch of 70's doom metal in the bands musical style and the more melodic style of vocals are more close to groove metal and some songs are very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of steel guitars which also adds a touch of American blues to the recording while some of the melodies also come from traditional metal while some of the clean guitars bring in more of a psychedelic sound and the whole album also sticks to a slow music style from beginning to ending of the recording.
Hollow Leg plays a musical style that takes stoner, sludge and doom metal and mixes them together with a touch of blues and classic metal to create a very heavy yet melodic recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Hollow Leg are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coils" "Electric Veil" and "New Cult". 8 out of 10.
