Ayo, not sure how many Def Jux fans in here but I was just checkin' HHS and noticed a pre-release for Cannibal Ox to their upcoming album. I really didn't think these guys would ever come back together, but to me, it's a great day if they are. Vordul and Vast over El-P beats. When I first heard them, I thought "What the fuck is this shit?" Over time, I came to love that Cold Vein iddish. Anyone with me? I can't believe they are back together, I'm hyped for this. The cover for the pre-release is some more of that f'd up sheeit, with the skull of an ox head, looking like some shit from a horror movie. It's fucked up and I love it. Maybe I have issues? Who is with me!?

Yea defjux site announced earlier in october that Ox was signed on for a couple more albums with EL-P behind the boards. Its coming out after EL's solo next year!

I am pretty excited, EL's beats are becoming more thumpin and such, very very unique, and I feel the abstract flows from the ox duo.

"cold vein" is the last rap album which hit me musically.it was pretty creative and innovative.
just listen the track "AK47" on this page :

Exclusive: Cannibal Ox Reborn! Matthew Solarski reports:
Back atcha: Following two chilly years in suspended animation, the hallowed hip-hop duo known as Cannibal Ox have reemerged at last, and they're fixin' to start something. Pitchfork has just learned that the wizards of Ox are planning a follow-up to 2001's celebrated The Cold Vein, which will drop next year on Def Jux. Jux guru and producer extraordinaire El-P will commandeer the boards for the currently untitled release, as he did on Vein. Guest producers are slated to include the RZA and Pete Rock. Hot.

Cannibal Ox's Vast Aire and Vordul Mega/Megilah have each spent the last two years immersed in solo efforts: Aire's Look Mom...No Hands hit us in April of 2004, followed by Mega's The Revolution of Yung Havoks last November. This past April, Vast Aire partnered with producer Mighty Mi for The Best Damn Rap Show. Aire and Mega also contributed to the Wu-indie smorgasbord, Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture, which blew up shops two weeks ago.

According to a press release, Cannibal Ox have signed on for a "multi-album worldwide deal," which will hopefully translate to a steady onslaught of spooked-out beats and off-kilter rhymes in the years to come.

As for live appearances, the revitalized Ox has one show scheduled so far, on November 12 at Emo's in Austin, Texas. But an eight-date tour of grim metropolises near you is in the works for December.

solid, been waiting for another Can Ox album...definitely good news...plus its entirely produced by El-p, we all hope their sophomore release is in the same 'vein' as the one before it

"Return Of The Ox" is just a live album, not a new material release.

Eh guys, Return of the Ox is just the CD out for the meantime....the next LP is CONFIRMED for next year! It will be out after EL-P is done with his sophmore album. So I assume next spring or summer.
