How it works

Welcome to the website of Ox-Fanzine.

Ox-Fanzine was founded in 1988 and is one of Germany’s longest-running zines covering punk, hardcore, garage, rock'n'roll, alternative, indie, psychobilly and other good music. Ox is dedicated to a DIY lifestyle, supports vegetarianism/veganism and says "no gods, no masters!".

Ox is not a webzine but a bi-monthly print magazine (A4 format, full color, 116 - 132 pages) with a print run of about 12.000 copies. The zine and the website are mostly in German, but here's some basic infos on the zine and the website so you will be able to find your way around.

We have a staff of around 100 writers, we love to review all good music as long as we get it by mail on CD or vinyl, we also review music books, DVDs and fanzines.

Please scroll down for all further info like postal address. And in case you have any questions, just ask.

A: Please send an email to and we will send our ad rates, deadlines and everything else you need to know.

Q: Can I send you a CD, DVD, LP, 7" or cassette of my band/label for review? And what about downloads?

A: As long as it is music that somehow belongs to the genres mentioned above we will most probably review it. And we insist on real CDs etc. No mp3s, if anyhow possible no advance CDs. Some kind of press sheet should come with the release. And no, we will not do a review based on a stream, download, mp3s sent by email. And it is not even worth mentioning, but racist, fascist, sexist or religious shit goes right into the trashcan.
