Biography

São Paulo, Brazil (1993 – 1996, 2002 – present)

Soundscape of Emotions is the debut album by the Brazilian band Hollowmind, based in São Paulo. As the title already suggests, the album was conceived as a soundtrack for the simplest to the deepest feelings of the human being.

Introspection, hopelessness, affection and anguish are some of the feelings found in the lyrics of Soundscape of Emotions, creatively highlighted by the subtitles that supplement each track title. The themes of the songs are all authentic and “are based on my personal experiences and observations”, explains vocalist and bass player Roberto Gutierrez, who wrote all ten songs of the album. “Nevertheless, I think the lyrics could be easily associated to personal experiences from anyone that listens to the songs”, Gutierrez adds.

The album, produced by Udo Stramm, carries a good balance of the power and energy of and the musical sensitivity and emotion commonly found in songs. Inspired by Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Rush and Queensrÿche, the band brings an album with an opening act that is quite a bold move: Cry (The song of Nonconformism) – a 4+ minutes long instrumental track in which it is possible to capture all those elements – is a song that shows unusual personality for a newcomer.

Throughout the album, speedy and heavy songs, such as Beyond the Distance (The Song of Confidence), share space with emotional ballads, such as Shallow Room (The Song of Introspection), and long tracks punctuated by inciting tempo changes, such as Days of Dying Peace (The Song of Anguish) – featuring Alexandre Silveira’s remarkable guitar solos.
