Oxen is a local heavy transcendent rock band out of Holyoke, MA. Starting as a vehicle to channel their influences, Ben Reigle (guitarist/vox) and Hans Dalhaus (drums) formed Oxen with a vision to create heavy riffed accessible music. After numerous change ups of second guitar and bass, Oxen finally found its voice with the addition of Chris Daniele (Guitar/ engineer) and Andy Barrett (Bass). With the addition of these two members, Oxen was solidified as a sonic epic riff machine channeling the influences of Torche, High On Fire, Baroness and Queens Of The Stone Age. Appreciating the challenge of writing new music, Oxen forgoes a front man and introduces sparing vocals allowing the music to stand on its own.
