"To paraphrase an old expression, good things come to those who wait, but also those who work hard, persevere and have faith that their efforts and talents will pay off. Such is the essence of the story behind Spanish metal band Hollow Cry."

Brave Words:

http://bravewords.com/news/exclusive-hollow-cry-premier-last-call-music-video

"Spain possesses a fertile heavy metal and hard rock scene, of which the fast-rising Hollow Cry are the sonic proof - as evidenced with the arrival of their new album, From Ashes To Flames."

Vents Magazine:

https://es.calameo.com/read/00046664056121827b0c1?page=110

"We grew up listening to national punk rock bands and, despite that we never pressed that kind of music. It motivated us to look for our own style, to improve our craft."

100 Percent Rock:

"A lot of feelings went into the album. Each song comes from a different place, from some experience that touched us: a bad breakup, the death of a friend, a close person that let us down, and so forth. These emotions might not be that apparent on the first listen, but they’ll definitely show later on."

Madness To Creation:

The album’s title is a motto we adopted throughout the creation process. It means rebirth, a new beginning. After many years of failed projects and fruitless efforts, we can finally present our own music, the album we always wanted to create. The title encapsulates that struggle: this is our chance, the time to either turn to ashes or burst into flames. We want our fans to experience the same.

Anti Music:

https://www.antimusic.com/news/18/October/22Singled_Out-_Hollow_Cry.shtml

"The song 'Last Call' is about that, about taking risks in life. It also goes into the duality of day and night, determination and abidance; believing in something so much you're willing to go upstream, or renouncing and following the herd. That contrast is shown in the music video through two opposite backgrounds: a dark, closed space, and a bright, open place."

Brave Words - Procrastinated:

http://bravewords.com/news/hollow-cry-debuts-procrastinated-lyric-video

"Spanish metallers, Hollow Cry, have released a lyric video for “Procrastinated”. The hard-hitting track is the second video to emerge from the band’s latest release, From Ashes To Flames, released back in September via Into Records."

LYRICS

1. Shades Of Winter

It’s time for me to breathe again, it’s time for me to breathe again (you couldn’t face we don’t)
It’s time for me to breathe again (you couldn’t face we don’t), it’s time for me to breathe again (you couldn’t face we don’t). We keep your smile deep in our…!
Explode!
Who you are! Who you are!
Explosion!
Your own fate! The path I chose again! Your own fate! The path I chose again! /Explosion! Hey! Hey! Hey!/your own fate! Who you are! Who you are! Explosion! Your own fate! The path I chose again! Your own fate! The path I chose again!
No, you can’t
It’s impossible man
Get a real job
You’re fucking idiots
Your music are only screams
You’ll get nothing


2. My Way Out

Everything is trying to bring me
down but not today
I won’t stop till I leave this ground
I’m not the same
The world can push me hard
Trying to watch my shame
For what seems good in their brain
I won’t break

Oh my god where do I belong
What I have to do
Where I have to go
You never let me know

I’m more than this
But you can’t see
Through my veins inside my heart
the desire of leaving all behind
I’m more than this
But you won’t see
Through my veins inside my heart
the desire of leaving you behind
“you can’t stop me hahahaha”

When your dreams fade away (fade away)
When your world has burned in flames (burned in flames)
I’ll be standing here
Watching you kneel
Now you’re facing what’s real

Hate! Rage! Pain! Shame! Again!
Hate! Rage! Pain! Shame!

When your dreams fade away (fade away)
When your world has burned in flames (burned in flames)
I’ll be standing here
Watching you kneel
Now you’re facing what’s real

Don’t stay with me you’re all the same, never take the blame
You’re hunting me again
I won’t regret still being myself
You’ll never change the path I chose again
Don’t stay with me you’re all the same, never take the blame
You’re hunting me again
I won’t regret still being myself
You’ll never change the path I chose again

You can overwrite the memories we built on our road
but deep inside you will forever stay the same

Stay with me you’re all the same (you’re all the same)
You’re hunting me again (Hate, rage, pain, shame)
I won’t regret still being myself (Hate, rage, pain, shame)
You’ll never change the path I chose again (Hate, rage, pain, shame)

Don’t stay with me you’re all the same/I won’t regret still being myself (Hate, rage, pain, shame)

You’re hunting me again
Don’t stay with me you’re all the same/I won’t regret still being myself
You’ll never change the path I chose again
Again, again, again…


3. Procrastinated

Kids playing in the sand,
mermaids singing obscenities in the shore,
after all of this is undone,
I'll come after the crumbs.

My name is forgotten as it shades,
through the winter fog it dilutes,

for its ascendency won't disturb,
the shadows of those who it once devoted to.

Lonely people don't know where to turn,
their heads sore after too much rum,
breakups were thrown away.
And all we had was time,

not contemplating redemption as one should procrastinate,
for the days when we could hardly breath had been misspent
The name of who left us to rot,
forces us to sublimate our urges by making scrubs,
like the wino who is given a dime will fight for some lust.

You will find me after the fall, (you will find me)
I've been long waiting for this to unfold.
My pictures don't revolve around those who were left behind,
they're all grey and the second chance will never unwind.

Lying to yourself is cheating,
but not when she says
there is no rush, for us
the album is a piece of rust,
fading as we head
on to the next bar,
where we will be loved again,
if we ever knew what that meant.

Hold on to the edges,
this world that has come to ashes,
stumbling upon its faces,
crumbling up the fences,
that once separated us from the ledges,
in a question of stages,
we’ll stay pensive if we don't curse its senses.
Burn up the notes,
smoke all the joints,
that are left on the store;
we have to move on to new places,
it's not our fault that we can't keep up with the pretenses.


4. From Ashes to Flames

Here we are all standing in the crowd with no fear
Waiting for the glory of the many years that passed
Not alone we will shout and raise our voice to make them hear
Moving on through this storm because there is no need to rest

Most try to put down what you do (what you do)
People point and talk nonsense
They fail on the attempt
Of dragging you to the end

Fight for the things around you
Don’t let them escape
Bring your dreams back to life
Just take off and fly

Come on, go!

Caught down here I am feeling like my power is giving up
Losing faith in everything I thought that could be changed
Set me free now it’s time to raise the guns and strike them back
Cause I know that this flame that’s growing inside

Fight for the things around you
Don’t let them escape
Bring your dreams back to life
Just take off and fly

Those nightmares awaiting behind  
Are shaping your frame
So, step forward and crawl
Now you’re unstoppable

Although somebody is lying others will trust them blindly
They’ll try to bring you down don’t forget who you are
They’ll try to bring you down don’t forget who you are

Fight for the things around you
Don’t let them escape
Bring your dreams back to life
Just take off and fly

Those nightmares awaiting behind (waiting behind)
Are shaping your frame (shaping your frame)
So, step forward and crawl
Now you’re unstoppable (fuck)


5. Heaven’s Jail

Lying where the death comes from
Till I feel at home
Nothing ever felt this real but those
Shadows hunted me although
I was strong enough to fail
Our hell is not out there
You can find it everywhere
 
Waiting for your soul
Screaming for past sake
No one is safe
Waiting for your soul
Screaming for your fall
No one is safe, No one is safe

Now leave the pain away
You can’t escape this fate
I can’t reach what I said (no)
Promises that break
Cannot turn back in time
Destroying any faith turning me insane
Living all what remain inside
Smashing all that’s mine

Release it on your own
Is what you need to carry on
Don’t let this chance slip
or you’ll forever have to creep
or you’ll forever have to creep

They ‘ll beg for your fall
screaming loud saying no
don’t stop escape
They ‘ll beg for your fall
screaming loud saying no
don’t stop escape

Now leave the pain away
You can’t escape this fate
I can’t reach what I said (no)
Promises that break
Cannot turn back in time
Destroying any faith turning me insane
Living all what remain inside
Smashing all that’s mine
Yeah!
Now leave the pain away
You can’t escape this fate
I can’t reach what I said
Promises that break
Cannot turn back in time
Destroying any faith turning me insane
Living all what remained inside
Smashing all that’s mine
Living all what remained inside
Smashing all that’s mine


6. Beyond Defeat

There’s a burning flame that is keeping you awake you’re not dead, the mind racing the body bleeds from the heart
Your thoughts are unclear no one can stand this pain but you know there’s no other way out through pain

Your head forces you to escape
It’s time you step up and raise the game

It’s so hard to forgive the ones that hurt you, all the times you’ve pulled through
Those who kill what you love are going to pay, no matter how they pray

Once again, the final fight’s arrived now unleash the raging beast shatter the chains and try to insist

Explode lose control take what’s yours, focus on your goal don’t look around cause waiting time has expired, you’re not that child now stand up and win this fight  

Remember you’re not wandering in the dark wipe out your fears cause from now on every step you‘ll take will create your own fate, your own fate

You know it’s out of control, the way this path will end up, your only weapon is the courage to carry on
There is no time left for you, to doubt like you always do, take the last step to overcome your fears face the truth

Remember you’re not wandering in the dark wipe out your fears cause from now on every step you‘ll take will create your own fate, your own fate
Remember you’re not wandering in the dark wipe out your fears cause from now on every step you‘ll take will create your own fate, your own fate


7. Tears in Rain

I saw it in your face when you looked away
Desperation covering those eyes full of pride draining off your life
Don’t betray yourself show what is behind
I know you’re afraid of what could be said

I felt your emptiness while you walked away
Your feelings wasted through the scars that you can’t hide to the crowd
The light that was shining has lost against the dark
Face the truth assume that the world is craving your fall.

Yeah, you’re the victim of the life you led this very whole time
So don’t point or blame anyone
because it has always been your fault open up your eyes
Take off the mask you wish could get back your past life.

You think you could stay on top of the world now eat up those words this whole time you have been so wrong
The years are passing the beauty is dying the person you’re faking is sooner meeting the end

Your youth was wasted, and all that’s still remaining is the brightness of your eyes
It’s too late to make it up with the ones you cared about
You chased everybody off by acting like your charm would never die
Look at yourself now you can tell that this whole time you’ve been living in hell

You think you could stay on top of the world now eat up those words this whole time you have been so wrong
The years are passing the beauty is dying the person you’re faking is sooner meeting the end
Now you are tired your dreams have vanished it’s useless to grasp that time will never come back
Don’t run away cause you’ve written this fate your sorrows in vain crashes like tears in rain

Now you are tired your dreams have vanished it’s useless to grasp that time will never come back
Don’t run away cause you’ve written this fate your sorrows in vain crashes like tears in rain

All the blame and regrets are consuming you just can stand while waiting for the end
Look yourself in the mirror you can’t even stand the sight of the stranger you’ve always been


8. Never Enough

I lost my inner self  
The moment she caught my eye
I was blind and could not see    
No more wolf to cry on me

My love for you had been too real
But I won’t forget these things

Betrayal
Lies
Deceptions
Nightmares

Now you know this is the end
Of all come feel

My mind had been so blurred
Chased by your empty words
Your lips had me on shock
Couldn’t move under its curse

Darling realize I’m not a fool
Just a man who once loved you

Now you know this is the end
Of all come feel my pain

It’s time for me to breathe again, no more tears (no more tears)
The broken skies keep shining over me, get out

How could I be your slave
Till I became insane
Impossible to excuse
The wrongs you’ve put me through
How could I be your slave
Till I became insane
Impossible to excuse
The wrongs you’ve put me through

It’s time for me to breathe again, no more tears
The broken skies keep shining over me, get out

It’s time for me to breathe again, no more tears
The broken skies keep shining over me, get out, get out


9. Last Call

you were so scared of this upcoming life
Stuck with the memories you can’t leave behind
drowning in the shadows gushing out your mind
what can you do if you’ve never been alive

Stand in line, the pain will soon arrive to embrace every single trace of your life that seemed to be nice but now has turned black

this reality where you’re tethered is cutting the wings of your damn survive

Break down the walls made of those words you couldn’t face
We don’t have time to pretend, choose fast you’re late

Their arms are holding you making you tread so safely
You keep pretending this is what you’ve always claimed(claimed)
But it’s just the prison where you’ll live your life proudly
Someday at your grave people won’t remember your name(your name)

Break down the walls made of those words you couldn’t face
We don’t have time to pretend, choose fast you’re late

Shadowed thoughts and shadowed fears are eating you inside
Hold your breath you feel the death it’s not only in your head

shadowed thoughts and shadowed fears are eating you inside
Hold your breath you feel the death it’s not only in your head

Through all the promises you’ve made between the lies of staying there
This is the last chance to embrace your dream

Break down the walls made of those words you couldn’t face
We don’t have time to pretend, choose fast you’re late
Stand in line, the pain will soon arrive to embrace every single trace of your life that seemed to be nice but now has turned black


10. Years Gone By

Your life goes by while working taking out the best of you
And though you go through bad times you always tried it so hard
You grow up doing the right thing concerned about the others too
Never-ending smile always stood up for what felt right

Nobody thought that life could change even faster than a breath
 any hope we had was shattered but we won't fall

Cause we know you're there protecting us
Laughing at the things we still do wrong
We keep your smile deep in our hearts

You were always having fun enjoying every minute you had
Making everybody laugh with your nonsense
Planning the future ahead with your loved ones by your side
We'll remember the greatness of your heart cause we know

Cause we know you're there protecting us
Laughing at the things we still do wrong
We keep your smile deep in our hearts
Cause it sure keeps us strong

You fought hard until end but life's not always fair
but every step we take we'll remind your name (your name)

Cause we know you're there protecting us
Laughing at the things we still do wrong
We keep your smile deep in our hearts
Cause it sure keeps us strong

Cause we know you're there protecting us (protecting us)
Laughing at the things we still do wrong (Till do wrong)
We keep your smile deep in our hearts
Cause it sure keeps us strong
