The nearly 4 minute banger has a perfect blend of heaviness with crushing riffs, hard hitting drumming, powerful screams, melodies and even clean vocals. Kolodziej shows his incredible talent of going from high screams to perfectly clean melodic vocals effortlessly while conveying the songs theme of abandonment and betrayal by ‘friends’ and trying to move on. “Rain Dance” is the third and final single off the upcoming release, following previously released singles “Mania” and “Paramount”. 


Rain Dance is about giving your all to someone as they leave you at a time when you need them most. It’s about being stuck on them and wanting to move on without the ability to do so.” - Kolodziej on “Rain Dance


Hallow Sanctum was formed in Edison, NJ in late 2022 initially as a four piece before acquiring Dempsey back in November 2023. They deliver destructive low-tuned riffs, captivating choruses, crushing breakdowns and profuse amounts of ambience and symphonic elements. They released their debut single, “Mania” which features former vocalist of Feed The Addiction, Lucas Spencer, on June 28th, 2023 and as of now, has gathered over 100,00 streams on Spotify. They then released their second single “Paramount” on October 18th, 2023 and is their most streamed song to date, sitting at #1 on Spotify with over 61k streams.


Hallow Sanctum made their official live debut on October 14th, 2023 in Brewster, NY playing alongside Diamonds To Dust, Oakheart, Second Nature and Within Violence and delivered a crushing performance. Despite only being a band for a year and having only three singles out, Hallow Sanctum has made their presence known and with their debut EP on the horizon, you can expect to see way more of Hallow Sanctum in 2024.
