When BISON b.c. took its first step, amps were scorched and drums were smashed. Born of the ashes of seminal Vancouver skate-thrash band S.T.R.E.E.T.S., BISON b.c. are every headbanger’s dream. Their riffs are colossal and flow like a mighty river into a sea of fuzzed out shredding. Their message is punk rock angst and revolution, with the occasional nod to white wizards, the king of swine and a mythical beast called the “Stokasaurus.” On their debut album Earthbound they captured their massive live sound.
On BISON b.c.’s latest slab, Dark Ages, relentless touring has fine tuned the band’s dedication to the RIFF to metallic perfection. Dark Ages breathes like a rapid animal that you’d find tied up in Wino’s backyard. It’s Flying V’s, analog perfection, loud and sludgy, played by dudes with long hair in dirty denim jackets.
