Really, whatever shape they assume, Bison . s creations for Lovelessness largely succeed on the strength of those imaginative arrangements and by proving themselves improbably infectious despite their brute façade. Who knew such a woolly beast could also make itself so lovable even as its music is goring you to death.
sure has been busy since they formed in 2007 huh? With four releases in five years, they’ve been getting better and better with each one. So it’s not exactly a stretch when I say that Lovelessness is their best piece of work to date; although it probably won’t win over many undecided listeners. For those of you who are not familiar with Bison . expect plenty of gritty, thick leads, bombastic riffs, and a spaced-out feeling. It’s worked well for the band in the past, and they’ve really amped it up in Lovelessness. Lovelessness certainly knows how to start off an album the right way, but that doesn’t mean it’s smooth sailing all the way through. There are stretches – short stretches, but nonetheless still short periods in time – where the music fails to capture you and lets your mind wander a bit. Take, for example, the song Anxiety Puke/Lovelessness.
have been active for around 7 years, formed from pieces of . S, Goatsblood, and 3 Inches of Blood. Since the bands formation, guitar/vocals have been covered by James Farwell and Dan And, bass/noise by Masa Anzai, and on Lovelessness Matt Wood takes over drums in place of Brad MacKinnon. All the players on this album have had serious experience on tour and in the studio, and it definitely shows in the finished product that is Lovelessness. This is a very mature record. By that I mean it is very dark, and very serious, which is something not seen on previous releases.

The Vancouver metal band Bison . s fourth album is a muscular and expansive piece of stoner metal that seeks to challenge the laid-back, sluggish nature of that term. Let's get this out of the way: Lovelessness is in no way a tribute to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. In some ways the cover art of the Vancouver metal group Bison . s fourth album does bring to mind the deep coloring and dreamy haziness of Loveless, but even that's a stretch: Unlike MBV's hazy pinks, these raw, bloody reds signal an obvious metal direction. Instead, Lovelessness is a muscular and expansive piece of stoner metal that seeks to challenge the laid-back, sluggish nature of the term. Like High on Fire, with whom Bison .
