"FragileHollow is a remarkable rock band from Helsinki, Finland. It combines elements of hard rock, dark pop, melodic and doom metal. After various line up changes and mini albums the band has found its own sound and is totally genre free. As bands seem to copy and build an image FH is honest and makes it with terms of music it self."
Dark Music from Finland. The first recording deal from the Italian label Avantgarde Music and a license from Russia by Irond and Roxx has given the band a solid fan base.

FragileHollow is now looking for a recording deal for its new songs and more licenses for the 'Nothing' -ep. Band it self titles their music to be Atmospheric, Indie, rock & Doom!
