Hollow Haze is an Epic/Progressive Metal band from Italy, and Countdown To Revenge is their 5th release. The album features vocalist Fabio Lione (formerly with Rhapsody Of Fire and Kamelot), and also nicely intertwines symphonic elements via collaborations with Antarktica and Wintermoon Orchestra. Overall, Countdown To Revenge is well made and an enjoyable listen. The only drawback may be overuse of higher octave held notes by Lione (which teeter sometimes towards being off-key) within many of the tracks. By the same token, Lione is truly a talented singer, and Nick Savio (guitars) and Simone Giorgini (keyboards) knock out impressive performances.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
