Bison BC – Lovelessness


Bison BC – Lovelessness
Metal Blade / Rough Trade – 2012
Rock, Metal, Sludge
Rated: ***

The Canadian born Bison BC has been battling under the lee of bands such as High On Fire and Mastodon. And where those bands have slowly gathered more fans around them the BBC is still fairly unknown. Which is unfair; for their bulky, burly and hairy sludge is a true stampede of heaviness. Lacking somewhat in subtlety and flexibility their third album Lovelessness storms over you like a mad cow herd looking for tasty grass. And this rolling thunder keeps going for six songs and forty-five minutes. They hardly ever let off steam and the build up anxiety and anger seems to keep exploding like everlasting fireworks. It is amazing and it is loud but in the end it does make Lovelessness a hard button to button. Cause where their first albums leaned more towards the eighties and showed definite promise; this one seems to slowly fade into a deafening history. Like the beasts of yesteryear’s evolution. Let’s hope their next record stomps even harder towards fertile pastures where they will find drinking grounds to rest, recuperate and dance…
