Cannibal Ox Return, Team With DOOM For “Iron Rose”


New York hip-hop duo Cannibal Ox released The Cold Vein in 2001, and they are finally releasing the official follow-up this year. Remember that when you’re getting sad about how long X album is taking. The Cannibal Ox Wikipedia page is nothing more than a list of false starts and dwindling hope. I don’t know if I ever even had hope of a follow-up.

Now hope burns bright, and few returns boast the confidence and triumph of this one. Vast Aire and Vordul Mega have teamed with master collaborator DOOM. “Iron Rose” is goddamn ice cold; a dank, throwback banger bursting with references to everything iron except for the throne of Westeros. Bill Cosmiq applied the track’s heavy beat, as well as handling the production on the new album.

The long-awaited (Long-gestating? Long thought dead?) album is called Blade of the Ronin, and it’s out March 3 on IGC Records. Blast “Iron Rose” below and take a look at the album’s extensive track list.
