OXX: The Skeleton is Just a Coat Hanger; These Are the Black Strings That Make You Dance – ninehertz

DEP, Botch, Rolo Tomassi – there are reminders of all the common pointers, but the tech-y elements are brightly jaunty, and come packaged with a really heavy approach. […] like a sludge The Armed, on at twice speed, and as ridiculously brilliant as that sounds. The fierce riffs, the deadly vocals – there are elements which remain at the core of the album despite its eclectic nature, that will attract metal obsessives as much as mathcore beard strokers. The album energises you as you listen, OXX throwing everything into every second. It is conversely an exhausting yet exhilarating album to behold.” – ninehertz

OXX: The Skeleton Is Just A Coathanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance – Everything Is Noise

OXX has not only made a record called The Skeleton Is Just A Coathanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance, which is a feat in itself, they also managed to make it uncompromisingly unique… weird melodies, nail-biting dissonances, and rhythms that would make free-jazz musicians confused. This is mathcore that doesn’t need any fancy effects or elaborate passages, this is mathcore that is supposed to be fun and have some raw, expressive chops.” – Everything Is Noise

Bathe In The Caustic Storm Of OXX’s Brand New Utterly Insane Avant-garde Hardcore – Captured Howls

“There’s not any clear way to overstate how off-the-walls insane the new record from Denmark’s avant-garde hardcore crew OXX really is. Called The Skeleton Is Just A Coat Hanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance, the seven tracks of compact, suffocating music chart a course of absolute sonic destruction that remarkably enough, doesn’t end there. […] There’s not just a rage that in a huff is done — there’s a deeply set, constructive emotional and musical resonance embedded in this destruction that could easily stick with you.” – Captured Howls

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Oxx Rock Out With Some Seriously Unstable Hardcore On “Screwdriver Hymn” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“Pay attention, idiot… “Screwdriver Hymn” has a floor-scraping bass riff that the guitars lurch alongside, flirting with math-rock guitar noodling and chaotic, dissonant hardcore scrapes that fans of KEN mode and GAZA will enjoy, just as much as the fans of Clutch might enjoy the dirty southern-friend groove that closes the track. It’s a mess, but it’s fantastic.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
