Bison-You Are Not the Ocean You Are the Patient

Yes.

That’s really all that needs to be said about this one.  Yes.  Buy it.  Listen to it.  Absorb it.  Your life will be in a better place once you do.

Seriously, you can write this one down in ink as being a Top 5 release this year.  This is sludge done to perfection.  Crunchy riffs.  Distressed and angry vocals.  Seven songs.  Zero fat or filler.  Just solid song after solid song.

These Vancouver sludgemeisters have been at it for some time now (formerly known as Bison B.C. in their early career to differentiate themselves from the myriad of other Bison themed bands).  I really wish I could say that I have been a fan for a long time, but this is really my first exposure to the band.  I can safely say that I will be going back in their catalog.  I seriously haven’t been able to stop listening to this thing.  It really is a perfect album in every respect.

And, no, I don’t know what the hell the album title means either.  Just roll with it.
