Brazilian death grind band Desalmado has released a brand new music video for their song “Hollow.” The second single off their upcoming new album due later in 2021, due out via Blood Blast distribution. The new album title is still to be announced and more details to follow soon. The track features Argentinian singer Noelia Recalde, acclaimed for her expressive voice and talents in South America. Formed in 2004, Desalmado is today one of the leaders in the Brazilian underground, and even the father of Brazialn metal, Max Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, Soulfly and ex-Sepultura), is a fan!

“This song took on the perfect lyrical contours in the face of a distressing period in my life”, says vocalist Caio Augusttus.
The video was made by accomplished director Walter de Andrade, also responsible for the editing. In addition to images of the band playing in the studio, the video for “Hollow” features scenes with actor Valber Rodrigues: “It was the first video in which we felt the need to have someone interpret the lyrics of the song literally. We probably never had a song lyric which represented such personal suffering for all of us”, says guitarist Estevam Romera.
The song, recorded at Family Mob Studio, was produced, mixed and mastered by Hugo Silva, who was also at the helm of the band’s last three releases: ‘In Grind We Trust’ (2016), ‘Save Us From Ourselves’ (2018) and the ‘Rebelião’ EP (2020). “It was at Family Mob that we got to know the work of Noelia Recalde, who recorded some songs with Hugo. It was he who suggested we include some vocalizations by Noelia in ‘Hollow’ and it fit perfectly with the song’s mood”, says bassist Bruno Teixeira.
