about

“For a band to title its latest record The Skeleton is Just a Coat Hanger; These are the Black Strings that Make You Dance, well, you gotta think they’re either existing in a completely different universe and playing on a separate astral plane than most of the rest of us, or they’re just not playing with a full deck. So, there you have it: that’s the title of the forthcoming album by this trio from Aarhus, Denmark and aside from strangely reminding me of my father’s favourite way to insult me when I was a kid (“Why don’t you use your head for something other than a hat rack?”), it’s also a title that denotes some of the craziest avant-extreme metallic hardcore in recent memory.” – Decibel Magazine

“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

"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

“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
