Drawn to Descend

Karanthir Interesting mix of styles and influences on this album. Starts off as pretty standard black metal on track 1. Moves into American atmospheric black metal (2-4), then DSBM-ish (track 5), before ending with some old school Celtic Frost-esque riffing and roaring on track 6. Mixed bag, but works very well. Favorite track: Winds Forlong.

baudelagon Ce dernier titre sort vraiment du lot côté style et ambiance. Sinon je m'attache petit à petit au reste de l'album qui n'est jamais redondant. Favorite track: The Darkness.

Metallurgical Fire I got a little bit of a Rebel Wizard vibe on a few tracks. Not bad overall, though some songs could have used more energy and intensity. It’s a good one man project. Favorite track: Winds Forlong.

Easy to listen

Jarak A comparatively straightforward black metal album by HDR standards, but a good listen nonetheless. Well worth the price of admission. Once you've listened to this, go find more Ov Hollowness albums too, they're just as good.

After self-releasing a promising debut album in the summer of 2010, Ov Hollowness returns with a sophomore album one year later entitled 'Drawn to Descend' which will mark the debut of Ov Hollowness on Hypnotic Dirge Records. Building upon the foundations of the 'Diminished' album, 'Drawn to Descend' is an album which uses relative simplicity to deliver a very catchy, fairly straight forward album with strong use of eerie guitar solos, effective drumming, catchy melodies, and thrashy riffs which all combine to make a solid black metal album which is free of gimmicks. While having some similarities to older black metal classics, you can tell that this is not a regurgitation of classic bands, but rather a combination of the simplicity of older black metal with an altogether modern sound. With Drawn to Descend, Ov Hollowness has succeeded in creating an album filled with atmosphere that will please the nostalgic folks while still being effective in conveying that this is a modern release. This album comes released in a 12 page booklet in a standard jewel case.
