Bison B.C.: Lovelessness

The Canadian sludgesters in Bison B.C. are back with their third album Lovelessness, which they released in october 2012.

Neatly finding a balance between the doomy side and the hardcore side to sludge metal, Bison B.C. make use of both crushingly heavy passages, often with a slight Black Sabbath-esque feel to them, with aggressive and simple hardcore punk-styled riffs (as in 'Clozapine Dream' and the first part of 'Anxiety Puke/Lovelessness') and some of which have a primitive thrash feel to them (as in the more aggressive passages of 'An Old Friend'). A particulary interesting feature is the use of melodic figures that are built into some of the riffs, which makes one think of melodic doom metal which we hear in the second part of 'Anxiety Puke / Lovelessness'. The vocals are aggressive and suit the roughness of the music itself quite well, but the harshness of the vocals also contribute to a slight sense of monotony.

In all, Lovelessness is a fine sludge album, but probably one that appeals more to hardcore fans of the genre than to casual listeners. So, if you are a real sludgehead, do give this album a listen or two.
