ORYX: Denver Sludge/Doom Duo Books Massive Immune To Light US Summer Tour


Denver-based duo, ORYX, will take their piledriving sludge/doom metal out to fans all over the country this Summer, having issued the itinerary for their massive Immune To Light Tour 2016. The bruising venture will see the twosome delivering their bruising tunes to at least forty-one cities between June 30th and August 21st, with the final venues and cities being locked up now.

The Immune To Light Tour 2016 will see ORYX delivering the tunes from their split with Languish, which was released via Battleground Records in April of this year. Drummer Abbey Apple and guitarist/vocalist Tommy Davis deliver a full backline’s worth of damage on their half of the split, including an uncannily brutal Corrupted cover, their all-encompassing hymns swelling with dynamic excursions through the slow-motion realms of demolition. ORYX floods the listener with a deluge of downtuned amplification, polluted quicksand, toxic garbage, and broken hopes, bringing to mind the works of Grief, Electric Wizard, Corrupted, Ufomammut, and the like.

The ORYX tracks from the split LP with Languish can be streamed HERE and the band’s video for “The Singularity” is playing HERE.

The ORYX/LANGUISH split LP is available through Battleground Records in a run of 300 copies on 180-gram black wax including a digital download, available HERE.
