LOVELESSNESS - Metal Blade
Where do dogs go when they die?
The simple answer would be that they all go to heaven, but there’s another answer that goes like this; their organs end up on the cover of the new Bison BC album. I’m not sure how it came to be that a picture of the singer’s dog’s cyst wound up on the album cover, but digging his heart out to show it to the world seems pretty metal to me.
This is Bison BC’s 4th effort, and third released on Metal Blade records. It’s 6 songs long, but still runs well over 40 minutes. So for someone with A.D.D. there might be songs that drag on a little long, but the metal heads will eat it up with a spoon. Lovelessness marks the first recording done with the band’s new drummer. A total beast at the live shows, he is no slouch in the studio either.
With the signature leads and punishing riffs intact, it would seem as if this album draws from the best parts of Quiet Earth and Dark Ages making it a solid smasher from beginning to end. Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to purchase said album. I was only linked to a streaming copy of the album to churn out this review, and that’s just not going to cut it.
