Hollingshead biography
HOLLINGSHEAD is a Swedish band founded by keyboardist player Carl WESTHOLM (AVATARIUM, CANDLEMASS, CARPTREE). He is joined by drummer Fredrik HAAKE, bass player John NIEMANN (EVERGREY, THERION, MIND'S EYE), and singer Gidon TANNENBAUM from the stoner/doom metal scene. The music of their album ''Stay Dead'' is heavy and dark with a gothic vibe that takes his inspiration from the Swedish metal scene and the 70's prog rock. They keep the intensity of their music with no guitars, but instead with some monstrous bass lines and haunting Hammond organ.

4 stars The band's driving force is in the furious Hammond organ and the vocals of Carl Westholm who has played with various bands before releasing this album. The result is a dark heavy prog album with a gothic metal vibe that reminds me of the new metal band Korn for the colossal bass lines with many progressive structures. What makes this band special is that despite playing with no guitars, the vocals work is so vital that it replaces the absence of the guitars. The haunting vocals and the furious Hammond organ passages show some touches of Killing Joke and Grimskunk. The songs are really infectious from beginning to end with some cool turnaround that we'll let you amaze. There is so much passion in the vocals as in the keyboard parts that this music can't let you be indifferent even if this kind of Swedish prog is not your thing.
Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
