Our Hollow Our Home are making huge waves in the metalcore scene.

The Southampton-based band came to The Edge of the Wedge in Portsmouth, playing to an enthusiastic crowd that had just been treated to a metalcore evening featuring bands including Disparity, Prolong the Agony, Forgotten Shores and Idols of Apathy.

I Am the Eulogy and new track A Feast for the Crows were received rapturously, with crushing breakdowns and some fluid drumming from Nick Taliadoros

The band played a truly captivating live set, with a strong atmosphere in the crowd.

With an essence of fellow metalcore titans Parkway Drive, vocalist Connor Hallisey’s passion could be felt as his commanding stage presence got the crowd going.

I Am the Eulogy and new track A Feast for the Crows were received rapturously, with crushing breakdowns and some fluid drumming from Nick Taliadoros showing that the band are dedicated to giving their fans a good show.

Another strong point about Our Hollow Our Home is that their vocals are clean and solid, which complement the music perfectly. This is best demonstrated in For What It’s Worth.

The audience responded with a mass sing-along and some head banging.

These traits work very nicely and it is easy to see why they are held in such high regard.

They have a massive sound that is suitable for arenas and on the evidence of this gig, Our Hollow Our Home are set for bigger things.
