GEOMETRY OF BUSINESS

DESPITE THEIR CONSTANT ACTIVITY IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER, THE TRUTH IS THAT IT TOOK A DECADE FOR OXBOW TO COME UP WITH ANOTHER FULL-LENGTH ALBUM TO FOLLOW UP 2007’S ‘THE NARCOTIC STORY’. IT’S BEEN WORTH THE WAIT, AS ‘THIN BLACK DUKE’ IS A MAJOR KICK IN 2017’S HEAD, A GRANDIOSE PIECE OF MUSIC THAT DEFIES JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING – EXPECTATIONS, CATEGORISATION, STAGNANCY, EVEN THE BAND ITSELF…

OXBOW

At the beginning of our conversation, the loquacious, opinionated and larger-than-life figure that is frontman Eugene S. Robinson tells us in detail how Oxbow records don’t stop feeling like a dream sequence and become real to him before a certain point in time, and reiterates a lot of the work both the band and its members have had in parallel over these last ten years. Guitarist Niko Wenner then summarises the whole speech with efficiency: “What he means is that we’ve been working our asses off!” he exclaims with a laugh, and right here in this exchange, part of Oxbow’s essence is clearly visible. In the red corner, fighter/writer/singer/serial undresser Eugene, crooning, moaning, roaring and screaming his tremendously deep and impactful lyrics, a sort of chaotic, wild presence within the band. In the blue corner, Niko, Dan and Greg, a super tight, controlled three-headed machine of strength and precision, providing an almost incomprehensible level of musical richness in a way that hits instantly and flows seamlessly.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
