2 recensioni per HOLLOW HAZE The hanged man

  1. From Metal.it: Mi suscitarono buone impressioni già con l’esordio omonimo, ma oggi gli Hollow Haze (nel frattempo cambiati in buona parte del personale esecutivo e nel patrocinio discografico) e la loro combinazione di classic metal e hard rock, condita da qualche svolazzo prog e da una fascinosa componente atmosferica di stampo fosco e drammatico, riescono a fare pure di meglio, sfornando un lavoro che ripesca alcuni dei “pezzi forti” di quel debutto (“Easy Road”, “Breathless”, “Final contest”, “Waiting” e “Illusion around”) opportunamente emendati e li accosta a brani completamente nuovi, conferendo allo scacchiere complessivo una sensazione di più precisa messa a fuoco e di maggiore propulsione dinamica, anche grazie all’esplosiva resa sonora.
    Le canzoni inedite (“Burnt desire”, “Coming back” e “Dark”, le mie preferite) s’incastonano perfettamente con l’oculata selezione recuperata da “Hollow haze” (peccato, però, aver trascurato la preziosa title-track!) e confermano i cospicui pregi dell’act vicentino, artefice di un sound capace di dimostrare che anche quando i “debiti” nei confronti di nomi “piuttosto” celebri del settore (Savatage, Queensryche, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Edguy …) sono abbastanza sostanziosi, si può comunque evitare il rischio della “bancarotta”, se si possiedono le giuste capacità nel far fruttare un patrimonio così popolare e caratterizzato.
    Non si potrà, dunque, certo dire che la principale dote degli Hollow Haze sia rintracciabile in una forma d’originalità “tout court” e pur tuttavia la loro proposta non è né fastidiosamente retrò, né adduce “snaturanti” pretese moderniste, scorre “semplicemente” con forza espressiva e gusto melodico, grazie all’interazione combinata di cognizione, vocazione “tradizionale” e preparazione tecnica.
    Oltre allo smaliziato Nick Savio, a livello di singoli, segnalazione d’obbligo anche per l’ottimo sostituto del noto Dan Keying, Ivan Rave, il quale con la sua intonazione stentorea, “cattiva” ed intensa, sembra addirittura più “adatto” del suo pur validissimo predecessore a queste situazioni musicali, contrassegnando con il timbro di una duttile sensibilità interpretativa praticamente tutte le tracce del Cd.
    Tra ammalianti tempi medi, traenti accelerazioni e lirismi enfatico-tenebrosi, “The hanged man” promuove a pieni voti i suoi autori come degli autorevoli rappresentanti di quel hard n’ heavy a Denominazione d’Origine Controllata forse artisticamente poco innovativo, ma impeccabile dal punto di vista dell’impatto emotivo.

  2. From Dangerdog: Believe it or not, Hollow Haze does not play epic symphonic metal for which many Italian metal bands are known; this is not Rhapsody (of Fire). Founded in 2003, Hollow Haze has gone through numerous personnel changes, yet still was able to record one full length self-titled disc in 2006. Their sound approaches that of a stronger and heavier metal than their kindred with nods to power and progressive metal. (Though both are evident, they are often difficult to notice.)

    Honestly, after listening to first several songs, I was anxious to get through ‘The Hanged Man’ quickly. It’s not that the first four songs aren’t curious. On the contrary, it’s decent heavy metal with some fine fret work on each song. However, there’s a huge redundancy of harsh heaviness with little variety from song to song. It’s almost as if Hollow Haze felt compelled to prove that they are a ‘heavy metal’ band.

    Once you arrive at ‘Pretender,’ a more melodic power metal piece, the music becomes more interesting, varied, and pleasing, at least for several songs. ‘Waiting’ is better simply because the melodic metal reigns and Ivan Rave doesn’t sound like he’s ripping his lungs out. Skip to ‘Senses Roam’ where, again, you have a tremendous melodic metal song with a fine progression and solid vocal arrangement. Much of this style continues to the end and this is where Hollow Haze does well. Even with some more inherent heaviness, when Hollow Haze emphasizes more melody and variety in the compositions, they do much better.

    Hollow Haze’s ‘The Hanged Man’ is a good second effort by this young Italian band. Yet the work is a bit uneven. They can’t seem to decide if they want to whack you on the side of the head with the an abrasive heavy metal shovel or pursue more heavy metal with a mixture of heaviness, melody, and subtle progressiveness. Still, ‘The Hanged Man’ is worth checking out.
