Beards, Check. Tattoos, Check. Bringing the heavy riffs, goddamn right.
From Vancouver, Bison brings it. Bison has been on my radar for some time now and I was impressed. My biggest disappointment was that their promo info bragged of dueling Flying-Vs. Being a fan of Flying-V especially dual, I was saddened to see there were none.
Bison sounds much like early Mastodon and High on Fire. They stomped through their set and possess good stage presence. I was surprised that they didn’t have any accidents considering the small amount of stage space that they had with 3 bands worth of gear behind them. They played some new song from their album due out on April 13, and some old, mostly from the Quiet Earth album I believe. If you get a chance I would recommend you check them out.
