Interviews: Ghost Hollow

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Sludge Metal/Doom Metal band, Ghost Hollow from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Ghost Hollow is a piece of local folklore. There are a couple of stories about a valley called Ghost Hollow including a newly-wed bride burning alive in her home who still haunts the hollow and it being where Seqoyah invented the Cherokee Alphabet. It was just a cool way to represent our home.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Sabin: I don’t think it’s about wanting to play this genre so much as this is just what has come out of us playing together. We never really had a targeted genre expressed when we started writing music.

Carter: We’re old and tired

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Sabin: I have been friends with Carter for around 15 years and we have all played music in various bands around the area for 10.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Sabin: That is a really hard question. Recently the two albums I frequently go back to our Pale Swordsman by Këkht Aräkh and Any Shape You Take by Indigo De Souza

Carter: He is Legend

Mason: Inter Arma

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Sabin: It usually starts with a riff one of us comes up with and then we work out the rest together. The feeling you get when you do figure it out with your friends jamming in a room is what I keep chasing.

Carter: It’s mostly a byproduct of hamming with the homies.

6. Where was your last gig?

The Fort Smith Brewing Company in Fort Smith, Arkansas. They have a room behind the taproom where the bands are set up in front of a bunch of brewing equipment. It’s a pretty cool place.

7. Where would you like to act?

Anywhere we haven’t before really. Something connected to nature like Red Rocks or The Caverns would be cool.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Connecting with some more Arkansas bands would be awesome. Namely Deadbird and Rwake.

9. Whom not?

We’re down for anything really, except NSBM and other Nazi shit.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Sabin: I get nervous sometimes. Usually a few days before we have a show. You just have to push through it. The alternative is you don’t play and that’s worse than any mistake you could make onstage.

Carter: I used to get pretty bad stage fright, I’d get sick to my stomach before shows. It always goes away after the first song or two.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Sabin: Other Arkansas bands inspire me. There’s something different about knowing they’re from the place you’re from and they're doing what they're doing. 

Carter: He is Legend

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

No one has really asked us for anything.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Sabin: I’m so grateful for anyone that would consider themselves a fan. Music is a pretty intimate thing and I feel lucky I can share that connection with people. 

Carter: They’ve got a tough road ahead of ‘em.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s cool getting artists to talk about their process and feelings behind their work. I haven’t really seen that in a lot of places.

15. Something to add?

Don’t cheap out on toilet paper. Get the good stuff. You deserve it.
