Hollow's style blended 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 were clear and melodic, almost too much so, while the guitar work is crunchy and effective without overdoing it. They never rated too high on the originality scale, but they were decent enough for the time. They broke up shortly after their 1999 release, but mainman Andres Stoltz resurrected the name, essentially turning the band into a solo project, and releasing a new album in 2018.
