Winnipeg's Hollow Ground was formed in early 2003, taking members from local hardcore/metal bands Stand Strong, First Strike and Volition. Soon after, a 5-song demo was recorded and the band gained a strong following after playing several local shows. A second 3-song demo was recorded in January of 2004, which made quite a stir all throughout Canada & the US.
After being picked up by OCR in July 2004 and finishing off a very successful Canadian tour later that summer, Hollow Ground went back into the studio with producer John Paul Peters to record their debut release. The result of this collaboration was the 6-song MCD/7" entitled 'Cold Reality', which was released February 2005. 'Cold Reality' is a stunning combination of breakdowns and sing-alongs, and features guest vocals by Comeback Kid's Andrew Neufeld. Hollow Ground plays fast straight up hardcore with heavy crushing breakdowns in the vein of Hatebreed, Comeback Kid and Terror.
