Metal Blade Records has announce the signing of Vancouver Canada's BISON.
Born of the ashes of seminal Vancouver skate-thrash band S.T.R.E.E.T.S., BISON's riffs "are colossal and flow like a mighty river into a sea of fuzzed out shredding," according to a press release. "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 its 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 for a fall 2008 release.
Here's what BISON has to say about its 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."
Added Metal Blade Records: "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."
