Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Vancouver metal veterans Bison make a devastating return with their brand new album You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient. After 2012's Lovelessness, the four-piece's last album for Metal Blade Records, the band was joined by Shane Clark on bass, former lead guitarist of 3 Inches of Blood. The EP 1000 Needles, released in 2014, already hinted at what to expect from their fifth full length album: a thundering opus of epic filth and splendor. While Lovelessness was recorded in Chicago by Sanford Parker (Yob, Pelican, Nachtmystium), the band decided to record this new collection in their hometown, with long time friend Jesse Gander at Rain City Recorders. "It was important that the songs fit together to tell a bit of a story," guitarist and vocalist James Farwell explains. "A story of a new life and escaping the city, while still being tethered to it. Life is a constant fight, and though I have taken the fight to a more natural and beautiful place, that struggle still persists. This is an album of daily living. It is for everyone."
