With musical influences ranging from Sevendust to Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle, Hold Me Hostage manifests as hard-edged creativity elegantly wrapped in Weltschmerz-tinged optimism. Deep, resonating bass lines lay the foundation for Christopher’s powerfully dark, heavy vocals, which are inspired by singers like Trent Reznor, Maynard Keenan, and Corey Taylor and are often compared to Mike Patton’s unconventional and innovative sound. Chris says of his vocals, “My voice is different; it’s unique but the songs are competitive. I think that’s what sets Hold Me Hostage apart.”
