iTunes Review

Texas metalcore outfit Memphis May Fire retools its sound on its sophomore album, The Hollow in favor of a sobered tone and a heightened ferocity. The band seems out for blood, directing its volcanic rage both outward and inward. MMF’s sharpened spiritual focus is unmistakable — from “The Sinner” onwards, mankind’s helplessness and need for redemption is a recurring theme here. Alternating screamo and clean vocal passages maintain a sustained tension as volleys of punishing guitar riffs and eruptions of blast beats form a dense mesh of sound. Auto-Tuned singing and programmed drumming add unexpected touches, with “The Burden” sounding like an ambient industrial piece. But those who savor the barely-controlled savagery of prime metalcore will find plenty to like in tracks like “The Deceived,” “The Haunted” and “The Reality.” Kellen McGregor’s hellish snarls combine with Matty Mullins’ soaring testimony give life to the songs’ torment-filled lyrics. Emerging from the betrayal and self-hatred heard on The Hollow is the promise of transcendence.

I hate every person who keeps saying bands sound like other bands blahblahblahblahhhhhh. OF COURSE THEY DO, THEY ARE IN THE SAME GENRE. But MMF sounds so much better than any of the other fail bands that try to sound good. And yeah they've changed their original southern sound BUT WHO CARES. Bands mature, and I think that it was a positive step for MMF to take. This album is truly awesome. The vocals, lyrics, riffs, drums, etc. Well done MMF!


this is better than life itself

Not the MMF we knew...

This is not Sleepwalking. this is not their EP. But what 'The Hallow' really is, is scene-metal at its finest.

The vocals are distinctly different from their old work...the clean vocals trying to mimic Emarosa, and the growls trying to mimic Attack Attack!'s heavier moments. And their breakdowns sound suspiciously familiar to some Asking Alexandria breakdowns..... absolutely nothing new here at all.

However, its everything a scene-kid could ever ask for! swooning vocals, consistently 4/4 time signatures, heavy breakdowns, fast guitars, faster drums, and a non existent bass line!!! wahoo!!!


Genre: Rock

Memphis May Fire hail from Dallas, Texas, having formed in December 2006 when Chase Ryan (vocals), Kellen McGregor (guitar and vocals), Ryan Bentley (guitar), Austin Radford (bass), and Jeremy Grisham (drums) came together to write songs for an EP. Signed to Trustkill early the following year on the strength of said eponymous EP (later reissued by the label), the group immediately began to work on new material for a long-player while honing their very intricate blend of hardcore, metal, and emo on-stage....
