In general HOLDCELL has a hard hitting, straight-up rock-n-roll sound with broad appeal. Songs have strong melody making them memorable. Some have subtle modern metal elements mixed with classic stylings like funk and groove, giving them a danceable feel. “Ride” and “King” are well received mainstream favorites, while “El Gallo” and “Sad Dwellings” reflect the diversity of their influences and are noted standouts of their unique indie sound, with Latin and Reggae notes respectively. Lyrics are of and about life's roller coaster for the most part, like the irony of “Withhold the Faith”, but then taking a dark turn on “Flowers on the Hill”. (Lyrics published in CD)
The members of this southern band have collectively and individually toured, recorded, won the “People’s Choice Award” in 2002 at the ALMA's shared the stage with Bad Company, Brand New Sin, Clutch, Cody Chestnut, Collective Soul, Cowboy Mouth, Drive-n-Cryin’, Edgar Winter, Moke, Motörhead, Sevendust, and Stuck Mojo.
