HE WHOSE OX IS GORED has been rumbling the underground masses with their eclectic, oft trance-inducing fusion of doom, prog rock, post-hardcore and psychedelic shoegaze since their inception in 2009. The band released their debut EP, Op Amps, later that year on their own Void Assault label. Featuring heavy guitars and atmospheric synth-centric soundscapes, the band managed to bend genres into a formidable crossover composite. In 2010, the obscure unit unleashed their Tad Doyle (TAD, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth)-produced follow-up, Op Amps II: Into The Ethers. Through multiple tours and personnel shifts, the band continued to refine their sound and entered Seattle’s Red Room Studios with Chris Common. The resulting Nightshade EP was three tracks of crushing doomgaze, built on texture and aggression. Following the release of their critically-adored, Bleeding Light Records-issued Rumors 7", the band presents their highly-anticipated full-length album titled, The Camel, The Lion, The Child.  Captured at Red Room and Ex Ex Audio in Seattle by Robert Cheek (Deftones, Tera Melos, Chelsea Wolfe, etc.) with additional recording at Avast Studios with Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Wolves In The Throne Room etc.), mixed by Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon etc.) and mastered by frequent collaborator, Blake Bickel, The Camel, The Lion, The Child is a truly cathartic audio expedition difficult to ignore.
