    Avant-garde rock fans that have yet to discover the dark drama of Oxbow will likely soon join the coterie. With a number of albums under their belt (featuring studio mentorship provided by the notorious Steve Albini), the band enlisted Joe Chiccarelli (Frank Zappa) to co-produce THE NARCOTIC STORY (2007). The album's sludgy yet melodically thoughtful songs and intricate metal musings paint a challenging soundscape of hopeless beauty.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (p.182) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hey cut deeper and sound more relevant than any band this long in the tooth have a right to."
    The Wire (p.57) - "'Geometry of Business', THE NARCOTIC STORY's superb opening track, recalls the decadence of early Bad Seeds with its grounding guitar riff and lustrous piano."
    Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "[They are] a power-unit of expression extremity and warped rock impulses with an impressive aversion to compromise."
