"The name is Bison b.c. and they are heavy as fuck…" Thrasher Magazine

"everything you could ask for in a metal band."

"…unpretentious, mountainous rock…frequently sound like Mastodon at their most straightforward, coming impressively close to that band's mastery of the riff." Terrorizer Magazine

"Heavy, man. Real heavy. Jean-jacket heavy…If Mastodon had spent more time listening to Anthrax, they might sound like Vancouver's Bison b.c."

If you haven't seen this BISON B.C. live, this will be a great opportunity to see how these guys decimate crowds in venues big and small. Don't believe our hype - go see BISON B.C. for yourselves.
