It will be a heavy and avant-garde-filled evening when Agabas from Norway performs death jazz and Oxx from Århus brings avant-hardcore to Stengade during the Vinterjazz Festival.
Extreme metal and jazz in disgusting harmony. It's called deathjazz and, yes, it is as insane as it sounds. The roaring jazz saxophone solos its way across landscapes of blast beats and chugging just as effortlessly as it joins in on the groovy guitar riffs, creating a unique dynamic of metal and jazz that can only be described as the Agabas experience.
The band’s sound is influenced by bands like Meshuggah, Gojira, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Converge for their metal foundation and blends it with a jazz expression in the likes of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. It all culminates in a wild rush of adrenaline fueled aggression, and when it comes to the live shows - well, they get about as unhinged as you would imagine.
