Truth Inc Records are very excited to announce the signing of rising melo-death stars Hollow World.
The five-piece hail from Melbourne and have taken the Australian heavy scene by storm in 2017 with the release of their debut album Exanimate as well as gracing stages around the country with some of the best bands Australia, and the world, has to offer.
After playing coveted festivals such as the inaugural Thrash, Blast and Grind Festival in Melbourne, Blacken Open Air in Alice Springs and the Dead of Winter festival in Brisbane and supporting the likes of Fleshgod Apocalypse and Fallujah, Hollow World are set to tour Australia with Once Human in early 2018 and then are planning on setting their sights beyond Australian shores.
"We are excited to join a label like Truth Inc. We've always admired the Truth Corroded guys and their drive and now, to work with their label after seeing what they have done in the past with other Australian bands, we are very keen. They have impressed us with their vision for the future and we are looking forward to moving ahead with them as we grow our career," says vocalist Ben Roberts of the decision.
Truth Inc are equally excited at the prospect of working with Hollow World and helping them reach their potential. "We are incredibly stoked to have Hollow World join the label! They are one of the best bands to have come out of the frenetic Melbourne heavy music scene in recent years and have been as unrelenting in their work ethic as in the extremity of their music. Having firmly established themselves as a leader in the industry I look forward to working with them on the bands next album and see them grow internationally," label manager Greg Shaw adds.

Out of Melbourne are Ætherial, a melodic death metal band on the verge of big things. Their debut album The Still Waters Of Oblivion will be out on November 10th and you can check out the brand new single and clip right here!
When asked about the track, Ætherial had this to say about the meaning behind it:
"The Fallen Will Mark the Way is about the persistence and resilience that’s required to follow your destiny. It's a song about always moving forward whilst letting go of the past," vocalist Shep explains.
The video was created for Ætherial by Azreal Design (Germany) and Red Beard Design (Germany) and the band couldn't be happier with the result.
Commenting on the lyric video, vocalist Shep Sheppard offers "With the lyric video we wanted to stick with similar themes from the album artwork. There’s also a lot of inspiration from the trees in ‘The Evil Dead’ - which definitely works on a number of levels," Shep says.
It's certainly a taste of the goodness to come from Ætherial and we can't wait to hear the rest of the album!
Truth Inc Records, in conjunction with US label Imminence Records, are proud to announce the signing of Canadian prog metalcore band Eyes Over Sea.
The five piece band have quickly cemented themselves in the Canadian scene and came to the attention of both Imminence Records and Truth Inc Records after the release of their debut single in 2015, and after hearing some of the new material currently being recorded.
Label Manager Greg Shaw of Truth Inc Records is very excited about the signing and the direction of Truth Inc with the partnership with Imminence Records.
"Eyes Over Sea broaden the range of our roster further, bringing a multi-layered and progressive form of heavy music to Truth Inc. The band are both aggressive and dynamic and we look forward to working together and seeing them grow further. This also marks the further development of our partnership with US label Imminence Records and the scope of our international representation. Together we now offer a diversity of heavy music from across Australia, the United States, Canada and Europe with more regions to follow," Shaw states.
Eyes Over Sea are also extremely excited about the opportunity to get their music out to a wider audience with the signing.
"We are stoked! It's crazy to think that we are now represented in the Australian region and we couldn't be happier. We really hope to gain a lot more fans from this and we are looking forward to working with both Truth Inc and Imminence on our careers," the band says.
