CMJ Music Marathon 2008 Day 3: Bison B.C.

Words and Pictures by John Bohannon

These guys scared the crap out of me. I forgot how loud music can get, and yeah it was like an actual herd of bison coming at you full force through those speakers. Never banking too much on guitar solos, this East Vancouver quartet used the power of numbers to play as loud and hard as possible, with their constant interplay providing some of the best low-end riffage I’ve heard in recent years. On their MySpace under the “sounds like” section it says, “Your heart exploding in your chest.” My ears are still ringing the morning after.
