  1. Follow the Hollow received reputation from Ruiner in MM2016 Round 3, Set 2: Meg Myers vs. Tilian   
    Y'all got rid of a couple of trolls, but forgot to take out the bridge.

    Can we  trade DD for Jmg? 
  3. Follow the Hollow gave reputation to Jamie in Should We Ban Harty & DarkDragon?   
    I have to say as a semi-frequent poster here (but perhaps not all-time core member), I've found Break's comments to be way more incendiary than DD's/Harty's from the sample size that I've seen. Perhaps that comes from a bias of having seen DD contribute positively in the music community and Harty have some fun with us in the fantasy forums whereas I've had fewer favorable interactions with Break to balance out the negative. Honestly, if we were voting to ban anybody, people like Break or jmg seem more like they actively try to start shit. But jmg is entertaining enough that his doucherie adds a bit of color to the community, I suppose. 

    And as Tilley said, I do understand why some people have difficulty with Andrew. I do think Andrew is obviously a core member of this community and contributes positively, but part of why I'm so swift to come to DD's defense is that from my perspective, I see Andrew as having the propensity to be brash and rough around the edges. I feel that I've had to put more effort to be on good terms with Andrew than I'd have to with say Pen or Jason or Chris or Jman as far as people are quite easy for most anyone on here to get along with. I guess that's what I don't like about the ban of DD. In that case it feels like taking a side in the DD vs. Andrew thing. Are DD's social difficulties clearly the main problem in their ongoing conflict? Absolutely, unequivocally, and without question, yes. But I do think it's more complicated than that, and just as I used to have a bit of conflict with Omar and some other conflicts that popped up over the years, it takes two to tango, and while Omar and I each made effort to make good and get along and respect/like each other quite well now, I think both DD and Andrew could have done a lot better over the years to coexist in that relationship. And while Tilley may be a relative outsider, what Tilley says there in observing Andrew as brash is not wrong, and that's why I've been quite vocal and persistent in coming to DD's defense.

    I really don't think DD should be banned for two months but thats just me. Yes he's a troll, but his comments are much easier to ignore than Harty's have been in the past. DD contributes a ton to the bands to know section and I have found a lot of great music from him. He may troll a lot but it seems like a lot of the tension can be avoided with him vs Harty whos comments seem to go over the top a lot.
  5. Follow the Hollow received reputation from Kalt in The return of Rage Against the Machine?   
    Still might be interesting.  It's a shame they can't make up with Zack.  I do wonder though why they just don't keep using the Rage Against the Machine moniker and find a suitable replacement.  The other three members seem to want to play together first Audioslave ( who I wish were still together as well) and now this band.

    We can only hope.

    Because what you said implies that rock fan conservatives are idiots. How are you not getting this?
  8. Follow the Hollow received reputation from Matt in 2016 Election Season   
    I suppose I'm dumb.  Don't know how I got here, I must have slipped in some shit over in Facebook land and stumbled over here.

    I don't think it's that rock fan conservatives aren't online, they're just all on Facebook and Loudwire and other shitholes we don't like to visit because we're smart.

    Well your general attitude and personality suck so I'm not gonna take this too hard.

    They reached their stretch goal and the first album will be redone! Pumped.
  16. Follow the Hollow received reputation from Kalt in New Parabelle Song   
    They've met their goal to get the album made.  
  17. Follow the Hollow received reputation from RainbowDragon in Soilwork- 'The Ride Majestic'   
    They have definitely lost something.  David and Sylvain are great guitarists,   but I don't think they are as good of songwriters as Peter and Ola were.  Technically this album sounds good, but it's missing heart.

    Liking the black album over anything from Kill Em All through Justice for All is insanity. It's good but it's not close to any of its predecessors.

    Hatebreed-You're Never Alone

    It's our struggles that define us
    And the hardships we endure
    Your spirit can't be broken now
    You've come too far

    All your life
    You told yourself you were never alone
    All your time
    Spent on the problems that have no solution
    In your mind
    Giving up was never an option
    Out of spite
    Hold onto the hate that has helped you stay focused

    Stumbled upon this band, thought they were pretty good.  I did a search on here and found this thread.  If anyone is interested they have a 3 song ep they released back in April, you can find it on bandcamp.  Here's one of the tracks:
