Our Hol­low, Our Home

Lay­ing a gaunt­let to grief

Total Guitar - - MONITOR -

Four months. That is how long Toby Young had to say good­bye to his fa­ther, be­fore los­ing him to can­cer in 2017. Lost, Toby poured his thoughts, mem­o­ries and frus­tra­tions into writ­ing Our Hol­low, Our Home’s pow­er­ful sec­ond al­bum In­mo­ment In­mem­ory. “It’s a record that I had to make,” he tells TG. “It doc­u­ments one of the most dif­fi­cult pe­ri­ods of my life, and how I had to learn to move on with my life.” It’s an hon­est, pum­melling and mod­ern metal al­bum. Sear­ing and purga­tive. “Writ­ing songs has been a very cathar­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for me,” re­flects the gui­tarist. “My gui­tar, as lame as it sounds, has been there for me when it felt like I had noth­ing else... and has def­i­nitely helped shape me as a per­son, teach­ing me dis­ci­pline and per­se­ver­ance. I don’t know where I’d be with­out it.”
