Metal: Year in Review 2010
After the promise showed by their first two full-length releases, Vancouver thrash-and-doom enthusiasts Bison BC really knocked it out of the octagon with Dark Ages. Building on the sludgy power of 2008's Quiet Earth, the songs on Dark Ages are full of cacophonous riffs and powerful solos. But unlike the band's past efforts, the songs here feel fully formed, not relying on one catchy riff to carry an entire song. There's some next-level, clever arrangements going on here, and the clear, low-end heavy production makes this record a powerful 45 minutes of skull-cracking, epic radness.
