Metal Blade Records is very pleased to announce the signing of Vancouver Canada’s BISON, a band just as heavy as the beast they are named after. When BISON took its first step amps were scorched and drums were smashed. Born of the ashes of seminal Vancouver skate-thrash band S.T.R.E.E.T.S., BISON are every headbanger’s dream. Their riffs are colossal and flow like a mighty river into a sea of fuzzed out shredding. Their message is punk rock angst and revolution, with the occasional nod to white wizards, the king of swine and a mythical beast called the “Stokasaurus”. Their debut album ‘Earthbound’ captured their massive live sound on tape, garnering international recognition and a deal with Metal Blade Records.


BISON is currently recording their Metal Blade debut ‘Quiet Earth’ with Jesse Gander (3 Inches of Blood, Subhumans, Mass Grave, S.T.R.E.E.T.S.) at The Hive Studios in Burnaby, BC and are currently slated for a fall 2008 release. Here’s what BISON has to say about their new deal with Metal Blade: “We are pleased that our newly forged alliance with the dark lords of the blade has come to fruition. We shall slay with honor and wasted servitude. Using the awesome power of the riff, we shall lay waste, in solidarity with the legions of the righteous soldiers of metal. Now as one, we look to the future to conquer for generations to come.”BISON has all the ingredients we look for in a successful band; strong work ethic, great live band, good support team and a sound straight out of a BISON stampeded, thundering and brutal” Metal Blade Records BISON is:
James Farwell – Guitar/Vocals
Dan And – Guitar/Vocals
Masa Anzai – Bass
Brad Mackinnon – Drums


 “The name is Bison, and they are heavy as fuck…” – Thrasher Magazine
“…there’s no doubting that this Canadian quartet live up to the hefty billing their choice of moniker suggests” – Metal Hammer


“One listen to Earthbound tells you that the group is serious about what its doing, two listens make you forget about hair metal, and by the third listen, even the foppiest of indie-pop fans will remember why amps go up to 10.” – The Georgia Straight
