Hollow  


Hollow's style blends Mindcrime-era Queensryche (vocal melodies and some of the less heavier moments) with a tradition Euro power metal base (Helloween, or perhaps Conception, come to mind). The Queensryche tendencies have led some to put this band in the progressive category, but they don't really belong there, as they are more a melodic power metal band. The vocals are clear and melodic (occasionally too much so), while the guitar work is crunchy and effective without overdoing it. Though they don't rate too high on the originality scale, they have all the right elements in place -- melodic power metal fans should like this band. They were dropped from Nuclear Blast and were presumed to be no more, but in fact they are still active.
