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

OXX: The Skeleton is Just a Coat Hanger; These Are the Black Strings That Make You Dance (2019) – House of Prog

“We are talking about truly progressing music as opposed to regurgitating Genesis. Massively complex musical threads and time signatures have been woven together to create something powerful which never loses its edge, just like Damascus steel. […] It is intense, massively over the top, and one can only imagine a performance by these guys must be all-encompassing and also quite short as there is no way they can keep up this level of energy for a significant period of time. Mathcore is being pushed to its very limits here and the listener is quite drained by the end of it, but in a positive manner.” – House of Prog

BRENNER and MOLENAAR: Uninvited Savior – Zachary Mule

Byrne and Eno might have dug this sort of thing when they were making MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF GHOSTS, but that album was easy listening compared to the relentless stuff assaulting the listener here. […] Clearly Brenner and Molenaar put serious hours of recording into this project. They wanted to create a dark, swirling SOUNDSTORM, something you could get completely lost in and overpowered by if you’re that sort. And I’d genuinely love to hear their thoughts on good and evil and the state of the world today. This record is somewhat of an apt soundtrack to the completely deteriorating state of modern civilization and morality, a real end-times missive. No, it won’t be anyone’s idea of a good time, except the most depressive fans of super dark drone-based ambient, perhaps. But it does carve out a space at the very edge of a certain kind of listening experience, and the experimental freedom you can claim when there are no commercial considerations to bother with whatsoever.” – Zachary Mule

Dive Into Gripping New Soundscapes From BRENNER & MOLENAAR Exclusively Here – Captured Howls

“Unease gets turned to sound […] a bed of perfectly nauseating, droning tones upon which they build jagged edges of sonic twists like strangely melodic guitar strums that by themselves might actually make for a catchy tune. Here, they’re mangled into what feels like the disorienting soundtrack that might be playing in the waiting room outside an executioner’s chamber. The tracks easily feel that intensely foreboding.” – Captured Howls

Ten From the Tomb: Grizzly Butts reviews BRENNER & MOLENAAR

“Snort an expired yellowjacket or two and settle into this collaboration between GRIDFAILURE (David Brenner) and THOSE DARN GNOMES‘ Christian Molenaar in celebration of facial pain and nearby mucosal torment. […] Imaginative atmospheres and brutally harsh ambiance for a rainy day.” – Grizzly Butts
