Minnesota-based metallic hardcore outfit Blue Ox, have unleashed one hell of a live performance of the latest album Holy Vore. In all its metallic hardcore glory, Holy Vore will get you riling in the pit with punky energy and howling vocals, but also nice breakups of rhythmic chugging and dynamic lyrics.
The band’s Luke Olson reveals, "The live Holy Vore set was recorded at Signaturetone Recording with Adam Tucker at the helm, the same place we recorded the album. This was recorded in early April and the band was at various stages of getting vaxxed so we're masked-up besides Dennis. We shot this in one evening and edited and stitched the takes and it features all songs from the new record. Dan eventually destroyed his kick drum head on the very last song we recorded around 11:30 PM that night. That felt like the catalyst to call it a wrap."
Holy Vore is out now digitally and in limited pressings of vinyl and cassette HERE.
The new video performance has been unveiled ahead of the band’s show in Chicago this week. This Friday, August 5th, BLUE OX will play their first show since before the pandemic lockdowns, at a massive outdoor gathering supporting co-headliners Dead To Fall and The Killer.
