Based out of Western Massachusetts, Oxen is a 4 piece rock band that uses heavy riffs and pummeling rhythm to create a foundation for vocals that range from soaring melodies to gruff intensity.
This summer marks the release of Oxen's debut Lp "The Vanishing", an 11 song record mixed by Aaron Harris of ISIS/Palms, mastered by Chris Common (Pelican/Russian Circles/The Mars Volta) and engineered by guitarist Chris Daniele at YUCKY Studios.
It features guest appearances by Joel Stroetzel of Killswitch Engage, Jeanne Sagan of All That Remains, amongst others. "The Vanishing" showcases the band's strong points of a wide dynamic approach and varied influences.
"The Vanishing demands your full attention as it's one of the years most exciting and thrilling debut albums you're likely to come across." - The Sludgelord
"This record is bad ass." - Aaron Harris (ISIS/Palms)
