EP Review: "Murder EP" by Hollow Leg

Murder EP
Any time we head to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, we always get an order of Vietnamese Golden Egg Rolls.

These are just glorious. They are very skinny egg rolls that are deep fried and served with a translucent red dipping sauce. Anyone who gets Vietnamese food and doesn't order this is like someone who gets Thai food without ordering Chicken Satay.

In simpler terms: You're doing it wrong. It's like going to McDonalds on MacRib day and getting a double cheeseburger.

The appetizer is a lovely little course in terms of what should end up being a very good meal.

For myself, appetizers serve a wonderful purpose, by giving me a small snack, not only is my appetite whetted, but my blood sugar is sated. It's kind of a strange position, whetted and sated at the same time.

Hollow Leg
Hollow Leg's 2 track "Extended Play" would seem to be rather similar to my Vietnamese Golden Eggrolls.

The order only comes with two eggrolls and this EP only comes with two tracks.

Their both absolutely tasty.

Both the Vietnamese Eggrolls and Hollow Leg's "sludge" metal are different from the standard fare.

There's also red dipping sauce...well this is the Murder EP so in this ridiculous example, the hyper tasty dippin' sauce will represent blood.

Let's just go with it.

Hollow Leg, interestingly enough, features all the trappings one would expect. The unique thing is that those trappings are from several different sub-genres of metal. They groove like Pantera, scream like Twingiant, and riff like Sabbath.

There's a lot to love here, but my appetite is only whetted and I'm not sated.
