A tight NY-based five-piece, Hollow Bones emit all the hallmarks of their genre (screamo vocals, pummeling percussion triggers, relentless riffs, hard/soft dynamics, suicidal desperation) and do it all so well on “Wandering Sparrow” and “November Diaries,” both songs building to an epic froth. Patrick Anthony proves himself a more than able vocalist, handling the demands of the gig with merciless ferocity. What’s especially cool, however, are the band’s unexpected moves, not the least of which is when Sharon Malfesi takes the mic on “Lionheart, Execution.” Her tone and attack are such a marked contrast with Anthony’s that it adds a whole ‘nother dimension to the band’s sound.
