YomaBarr What a trip!
First, this can't be screamo because I keep away from screamo as far as I can - and it's not.
Second, I'm still trying to catch breath which won't stop me from replaying this right away. Plant orchids on my suffocated corpse.
Third, you're into disso, it's a must have. You're not, it also is.
Fourth, I must reset my radar, how could I have let this slip under?
Fifth, read the lyrics.
And so on.

Vince Bellino a thrilling fusion of sludge, grind, death, black, doom and screamo Favorite track: Distended Empire.

warren barton I thought Only the Flies was good but this takes Malevich to another disturbing level and it's full of darkened creepiness that crawls over your skin. Well done, Our Hollow is truly stunning and frightening heavy. A MUST HAVE Favorite track: Fractured, Exultant.

Cosmic Chambo We welcome Malevich – the crusty Atlanta blackened death-grind band with songs about embracing one another while waiting to be consumed by "the same earthen womb" AND zero tolerance for fascists – to the Inter-Dimensional Music airwaves.

1.
Earthen Womb 05:05
Recognizing insignificance Pale life whimpers on A useless nihilist Awash in self-righteous callow Clinging to borders for definition In the face of the same void Rejoice in the act of creating meaning Live as a fortress to empathy Behead the rabid fascist spectre In the name of those who cannot abandon hope Embrace, be consumed as we all wait to be By the same earthen womb
2.
We worship a throne of decadence We kiss the hands as they hold us down Brutality made just through apotheosis of economy Bitter pain made righteous through politic In a world of false tales Set us free if we obey Bring us joy in our toil
3.
Exposed desires Reveal constitutions of machines Our wants, our desperations For comfort, for satisfaction In each other and within ourselves Whether by pedagogy or wired interior; Desires must destroy as they move through the currents To dream one must first know terror To rebuild one must first create ashes
4.
Pawned off, unwanted What of what I’ve been given? What of love shown? I want a definition. Pawned off, unwanted I always wished I wasn’t here It’s easy for a hollow man To play a role Fill me up Write a prescription A moment clear Clawing towards a hole
5.
History gave us the world On a pedestal erected in blood An unyielding presence that weighs us down Like a nightmare on undeserved bodies What comfort is worth these lives? What greed is worth the starvation? The Earth lay rotting in our decadence Its rewards only masks the scars We hide in consumption And fuel certain death
6.
Spent 02:47
Weep into a cradle of concrete No embrace from a callous caste Each nearby step a whisper “How did we get like this?” The hollow space between mouth and eyes The personal, soaked in piss and blood Do we weigh worth as where we end? A few careless steps off Thought mediated by self-interest In truth, a salve for an insensate need Tell me again “I deserve this” As if any of us have control
7.
Less inspired every day Every limb a wasted opportunity A mocking call of “you could” A sore collection of flesh Given the world and I can't stop Picking its scabs Dry my hands Split my skin Open wound to experience Heat will return But in a cool breeze Standing feels like living Seeds will grow Life goes on
8.
Pulled apart at the seams by threads Caught in gears, set in motion by long dead hands Ignorant of consequence Apathetic to consequence Devoid of consequence Conflating capital with greatness And power with justice And the lust of men With the will to be righteous Burned alive as fuel Consumed unaware in the furnaces Of great machines Of just machines Of holy machines Of meaningless factories Chewing teeth in our dreams Turning gears when we wake
9.
Tear me apart that I may come together Break my brittle bones and grind them into dust The self is a reflection against the other defined by an abstraction We procrastinate confrontation We retain tumors Best cut and left to die External oppression turned inward Eventually these binds become my own The self a festering rot Hopeful release The lure of change, an unlit candle Leave your skin on the sidewalk Face the oncoming light Bathed in the glow of the moment Only without may the body be liberated

about

"Malevich sit contentedly at the centre of a disgusting Venn diagram of black metal, death metal, grind and sludge creating a multifaceted psychotic creature of a record....
It is like meeting the creatures that lurk in the depths of your brain and once you have given them shape you know how to deal with them. Our Hollow is truly a remarkable album."
- Astral Noize UK

"Our Hollow sounds like a deranged, horrific testament to modern life encompassing both the outward shrillness and the devastating emptiness of introspection."
- Toilet ov Hell

"Throughout Our Hollow, no matter what precise style the band are employing, Malevich return time and time again to a thrillingly pulsating tension delivered with a caustic enough force to only barely metaphorically rip faces off. Ultimately, the album feels like the legitimate call out of someone who’s felt crushed by the march of the societal machine that has enacted some of the most dangerous conditions of the present social and political climate."
- Captured Howls 5/5 review
