Bison B.C. is a Canadian Sludge Metal band from Vancouver. Their second (third, if you count their 2007 EP/LP Earthbound) full length album was released in 2010 through Metal Blade Records. Honestly, this record might be my most-listened to album since 2010. I’m actually not the biggest Sludge fan (I’m more a Death Metal guy), but this record and their live performance in Hamburg’s Hafenklang in that year gave me an instant erection that’s just not ebbing away. Just listen to Stressed Elephant, the opener of the release and you’ll know what I mean.
That’s also one of the main reasons I’m featuring this artwork on this blog. It’s obviously symmetrical but I don’t think it’s visually stunning. It’s definitely simplistic and iconic but the combination of the asian inspired artwork, the way too big logo and the strange type choice for the title doesn’t do the record’s quality justice.
So let’s say that this post is a plea to the band to get a better design on their next release and that they better hurry with that.
