Album Notes
Founders of the group Tourniquet, Guy Ritter and Gary Lenaire create a Modern sounding Metal album with a wide range of styles. Melodic guitars and vocals are mixed well with the heavy guitar sounds that made Tourniquet famous.


to write a review


Guy Ritter and Co. on top form
The undeniably awesome vocals of Guy Ritter are back once more on Echo Hollows 2nd (and long awaited) release. Superficial Intelligence is similar in many ways to Diet Of Worms but has a slightly lighter sound. If you're looking for a lighter sounding Tournqiuet then EH are what you need. Great production, and lyrically brilliant, it's one album to put on your "must have" list.


Superficial Intelligence RULZ
Echo Hollow is back, at their best! Superficial Intelligence is more agression, more passion, and much more melodic than Diet Of Worms. Very great!


For brazilian fans
Echo Hollow está de volta, ainda mais agressivo, mais apaixonado, e também mais melódico que em Diet of Worms. Um prato cheio pra quem quer lembrar dos bons tempos no Tourniquet, e ter um novo conceito do (sempre) bom trabalho de Guy Ritter e Gary Lenaire. Vale a pena!!

An overwhelming mixture of different guitar sounds and vocal arrangements - stri
In the mid 90ies the classical metal scene had to face many new elements created by Wah-wahs, Equalizers, Flangers, Phasers, Overdrives etc. Everything was called metal, but it wasn't. The follow-up album Superficial Intelligence of Echo Hollow is a typical example of a band that seeks new dimensions in the metal universe. My opinion in a few words: Great new songs! The song structures are not that weird and complex like Tourniquets' latest (Sorry Ted!). The opening track ADHD is a great song that makes you want to sing along. My favourite tracks as far as I heard them, are Empty, Late Movie and 1973. I personally prefer more hard rock stuff, but also calm-down melody stuff. The instrumental influences, I mean the clean guitar elements in whole create a more welcome atmosphere. I truely miss Gary's guitar sound as a long-time Tourniquet fan since late 1990. It's great that Echo Hollow explores new paths on this album. Thank you guys!


Better than there first album
But not great overal. Nothing like tourniquet who still has not had a bad release.

Richard Astle

Not to be compared with Tourniquet, more like Bride, which is still good
While it is great to hear Gary and Guy again, this is no Tourniquet sounding band(except maybe Crawl to China), Great sounding, but Very much on the light music style. Hard Rock not metal.

If you like Bride, you will probably like echo hollow. Don't expect it to sound like psycosurgery style Tourniquet-it simply doesn't.

As for Ted's songs being too technical-get a grip they play classical-metal how can that not be technical? Technical is what makes Tourniquet!
Best Regards Richard Astle


Great stuff, but is this the end?
Echo Hollow's sophmore release is a more refined album all around than its predecessor Diet of Worms. It is a shame that it will probably be the last release by this awesome band - the official website has completely dried up.

As fervent in their beliefs as ever Guy Ritter, Gary Lenaire et al continue unabashedly tackle subjects like hypochondriacal parenting (ADHD) and abortion (1973). At the same time they branch out with the whimsical "Late Movie" and the lyrically sparse but patriotic "Bring It" that tells 9/11 terrorists that they "messed with the wrong girl" and "America is her name."

Musically the band continues to deliver a smooth and crunchy sound that ranges from mellow ballads like "Yesterday's Ghost" to infectious groove metal like "Bring It". Guy's distinctive vocals just won't quit. Fans of Tourniquet will certainly notice the stylistic similarity of this album to Tourniquet's own phenominal sophmore release - Psychosurgery.

the CD is awsome, keep up the good work God gave you to do.
the CD is awesome, and it is a great tool to evangelize
this heathen world, May God bless you all and give you the strength to keep up the work He gave you to do.



This CD is in my book is aout as good as it gets. The only thing seculer out their that could touch it is Metalica. Were has this band been. The music industry is in desperate needs and finaly there is a band that is filling that void. I agree with a lot of the previous reviews.
