Behold! O' Inhabitants of the Mortar (Live @ GBS Detroit) Cover Art

BISON MACHINE is a 4 Piece Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from USA

The members are:

John deVries- guitar
Breck Crandell- drums
Tom Stec- vox
Anthony Franchina- bass

BISON MACHINE is an excellent Stoner Metal Band with superb influences to Hard Rock/Stoner Rock Bands of the 70s. The have a great Americana feel to their music which draws you in from the word go.

This great band has been mentioned on this blog before with their last great release. Unfortunately lead singer Jim has now left the band for pastures new. But the guys have found a more than suitable superb replacement in new vocalist Tom who more than makes the role his own.

I am not going to compare vocals as that wont be fair to either Jim or Tom. As they both have are superb vocalists in their own right.

BISON MACHINE has released their new excellent EP. Behold! O' Inhabitants of the Mortar (Live @ GBS Detroit) - A 4 Song-22 minute album of entirely new tracks played live. And its an absolute blast of top-notch riffs from start to finish.

The guys have really upped the volume on the riffs as they are louder than ever. The album is superbly produced for a Self Released Live Recording. There are no overdubs at all and it sounds fantastic for it.

It’s to the bands credit they decided to carry on without former vocalist otherwise we wouldn’t of heard these superb tracks.

The 4 tracks sound like they went down a storm with the local live audience in attendance as it’s a pummelling 22 mins from start to finish.

All in all this is a superb release to show the band is back and hopefully here to stay for a long time to come. As BISON MACHINE can write a superb Sludge/Stoner Metal riff to head-bang to drawing influences from the great 70’s Hard Rock Bands of the time.

So get checking these guys now. You wont be sorry. You can own this superb release from BandCamp Pay Anything You Want Type Deal. Highly Recommended.
