Bison B. C. Blasts Back to the Dark Ages

Shazam and Sirius liquid Metal brought Bison B.C. into my life and I am now better off for it. The Vancouver based band hit like an all out assault on my senses from my Rockports, threatening to shatter my windows and take me off the road. I had to find out who this band was and why I had not heard of them before. Thanks to that wonderful little app Shazam I soon had my answer and was downloading their latest EP Dark Ages. So there I am cutting the grass with my headphones on and I can’t stop being a total metal geek as I am bleeding my ears with the enourmous vocals, tribally dark drumbeats, and beautifully crunching guitars. Their musicianship and approach to songs was unique and showed true mastery of what they were trying to accomplish. You really have to check their stuff out before I go further:http://www.myspace.com/bisoneastvan

From Metal Blade’s Site:

On BISON b.c.’s latest slab, Dark Ages, relentless touring – with the likes of Priestess, Baroness, 3 Inches Of Blood, and more – has fine tuned the band’s dedication to the riff to metallic perfection. Dark Ages breathes like a rabid animal that you’d find tied up in WINO’s backyard. It’s Flying V’s, analog perfection, loud & sludgy, played by hairy dudes in dirty denim jackets.

A bison is “a big, hairy, strong animal,” says James Farwell, who plays guitar and sings for Bison b.c. That could as just as well describe the band, which rose from the ass-end of the continent in Vancouver, Canada, to utter its doomed, plaintive call, and tramples through the constellations on its four shaggy limbs (James, Dan And, Masa Anzai, and Brad Mackinnon). Ghostly, windswept prairies, the mythical haunts of native lore: it is all there. Self-described “Canadian dirtbags” and veterans of Vancouver’s deep thrash and indie scenes, they are hitting their stride and offering up a new soundtrack for our last party before certain extinction. There is illness, abuse, apocalypse, and French horn.

Their first Metal Blade release, Quiet Earth, showed what that earth’s last sound might be like. It was heavy, sick, and crazy; stomping and banging, elegiac with cello. Just beneath the rock they described a bad trip through a devastated world where resigned dignity and camaraderie with the friends that remain are the only consolations.

This mixture of rowdiness and gentleness is very much of their hard-living, hard-loving hometown: fucked-up modernity’s last outpost on the rim of a vast, menacing wilderness. In their new release, James sings, “Vancouver’s an empty bottle, our dying thirst causing problems. Stand at dawn, the beginning of something heartfelt and replaceable.” No matter where we are, this is what it has come to in this age. So let’s listen to these gentlemen and rock out together.

“…intense, guitar heavy thrash that would make even Municipal Waste step back in awe.” Alternative Press

“…they dare to approach the maniacal majesty of present-day High on Fire.” Decibel Magazine

“…unpretentious, mountainous rock…frequently sound like Mastodon at their most straightforward, coming impressively close to that band’s mastery of the riff.” Terrorizer Magazine

“Heavy, man. Real heavy. Jean-jacket heavy…If Mastodon had spent more time listening to Anthrax, they might sound like Vancouver’s Bison B.C.” Rollingstone.com

“everything you could ask for in a metal band.” NewOrleans.com

“The name is Bison b.c. and they are heavy as fuck…” Thrasher Magazine

Battlecross Join Trespass America Festival

20120510-101633.jpg

Detroit, MI thrashers BATTLECROSS are currently making waves across the United States as the next big thing in heavy metal while touring with the Occupation Domination tour. BATTLECROSS will continue to slay the states with Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, and Rings of Saturn through the tour’s close in Lawrence, KS on May 18. Earlier this week in California, the band filmed a video tour update and TRESPASS AMERICA Festival preview message, now available for viewing exclusively at MetalInjection.net.

The TRESPASS AMERICA festival is a newly minted music festival set on revitalizing the metal scene with some of the most current and credible bands in hard rock/metal. Co-produced with Metal Hammer, the biggest metal magazine in the U.K., the tour kicks off July 13 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO, and will cover 31 cities in two months between July and August across the United States. BATTLECROSS will be joined by headliners Five Finger Death Punch, as well as the reunited original line-up of Killswitch Engage. The TRESPASS AMERICA Festival also features Trivium, Emmure, Pop Evil, and God Forbid. Tickets are on sale now; log onto http://www.trespassamerica.com for complete details.

BATTLECROSS has come a long way since their recent signing with Metal Blade Records and their release of their debut Pursuit of Honor in August 2011. Since its release, the single ‘Push Pull Destroy’ was the #1 Most Requested Metal Track for five weeks (Sirius XM Liquid Metal Devil’s Dozen), remains a stable on the Liquid Metal channel, and the track’s video has racked up over 700,000 YouTube views in the last five months. BATTLECROSS has received killer reviews across the internet and in print publications throughout North America and overseas and was named “Band of the Month” in Metal Hammer Norway and Metal Hammer Spain, so it should be no surprise that this blue collar, hard-work ethic that comes from the band’s five musicians – Kyle “Gumby” Gunther/vocals, Tony Asta/guitar, Hiran Deraniyagala/guitar, Mike Kreger/drums, Don Slater/bass – translates into a potent force on record as well as on stage. BATTLECROSS is also confirmed to sail the seas with the first annual MAYHEM FESTIVAL Cruise this December 7-10.
