Michigan post-apocalyptic hardcore outfit Hollow Earth have premiered a new track from their upcoming EP, Parting Remains, at Decibel. Titled “Beyond Celestial Limits”, the new track begins with a melancholic dirge before diving right into bellowing, crushing sludge territory. The track’s emphasis on somber melody, mixed with vocalist Steve Muczynski’s lyrics, paint a desolate portrait of the world to come. Check out the tune here.
Parting Remains will be released on January 29 via Good Fight Music. Pre-order here.
The dates for the band’s upcoming trek with Church Tongue can be found below.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2016

Recorded by Tad Doyle of ’90s grunge figureheads Tad, and mixed and mastered by Greg Thomas of Misery Signals,Parting Remains shows the Detroit-area band push their doom n’ gloom hardcore into new realms, more powerful than ever before.
Decibel’s Shane Mehling sums it up precisely:
“Hollow Earth have always sounded like they wanted to be more than a hardcore band. Sure, the midwesterners never lacked the ability to break necks and start pits, but there was something around the edges that showed a real thirst for something different, with flashes of doom and melody. New track ‘Beyond Celestial Limits’ shows the band finally matching their own standards… Hollow Earth have extended their sound far beyond past releases, into much fuller, more nuanced territory. Recorded by legend Tad Doyle, the band has become a plodding, melodic beast…”
In addition to the Parting Remains EP, Good Fight will release Hollow Earth’s most recent LP, Silent Graves, on vinyl – pre-order both ahead of their January 29th release date, here:
