|Pantera singles chronology|
"Hollow" is a power ballad by American heavy metal band Pantera from their 1992 album Vulgar Display of Power. A live medley of "Hollow" and another Pantera song, "Domination", is featured on Official Live: 101 Proof as "Dom/Hollow".
The song is the last on the album and starts off with a harmonized electric guitar riff (in 6/8), with an electric guitar with a chorus effect in the background. Phil Anselmo's voice is much softer in the beginning of this song, as opposed to the rest of the album. The vocals are very reminiscent of another hit ballad by Pantera, "Cemetery Gates". The song starts with a medium tempo and continues until the middle. Preceding a short solo by Dimebag Darrell, there is a short breakdown and the song continues with more intense heavy riffing and drumming (in 4/4) and a more aggressive growl from Anselmo.
Release and reception
The song was released in 1992 as the band's third single for Vulgar Display of Power. Although the song is one of Pantera's most well known songs it failed to chart.
