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". Their debut album Earthbound captured their massive live sound on tape, garnering international recognition and a deal with Metal Blade Records. BISON b.c. recently finished recording their Metal Blade debut Quiet Earth with Jesse Gander (3 Inches of Blood, Subhumans, Mass Grave, S.T.R.E.E.T.S.) at The Hive Studios in Burnaby, BC. Quiet Earth features the band’s trademark crushing sound and will be made available everywhere September 30th 2008. This is definitely a band for fans of doom, stoner rock, sludge, and good old fashioned heavy metal.
In a perfect world Bison will be playing with High on Fire at your favorite dive bar, all of your friends will be there and a beer will cost a quarter. By the end of their set their amps will be in a ruined heap on top of the drum kit and somebody will be bleeding. It better be you.
Check out BISON’s Metal Blade debut Quiet Earth available everywhere this fall 2008!

“...there’s no doubting that this Canadian quartet live up to the hefty billing their choice of moniker suggests” – Metal Hammer
“One listen to Earthbound tells you that the group is serious about what its doing, two listens make you forget about hair metal, and by the third listen, even the foppiest of indie-pop fans will remember why amps go up to 10.” The Georgia Straight
