"Lovelessness" (Metal Blade; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Bison BC returns with "Lovelessness," a seminal six-track tirade of stoner metal.

Capturing elements of sludge, doom, hardcore and thrash in their smoke-laden grooves, Bison BC displays a confidence to let their music do a majority of the talking, as the multitude of lengthy instrumental movements the group employ indicate a fierce twin guitar whose presence rivals the vocals numerous times throughout the album.

Armed with a predilection to launch into outer space at any given time, Bison BC admirably demonstrates strands of hardcore noise rock relentlessness and classic rock savvy within a mauling metallic gallop that fans of Mastodon, Unsane, and Orange Goblin are bound to enjoy (“Last and First Thing”).

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
