If you’re like me and have a hole in your soul that can only be filled by a night of head-banging and hazy guitar fuzz, then Bison, Bison is the band you’ve been waiting for. These Portland head-bangers play the sort of blues-infused hard rock that’s been stirring otherwise placid crowds into moshing frenzies since the first time Sabbath took the stage. But they do so with a modern edge that evokes the effect-heavy, trance-inducing influence of stoner legends such as Sleep and Kyuss. Bison, Bison released their self-titled debut last August which is full of heavy guitar tones, volcanic drumming and psychedelic bass lines that provide a track for the bluesy vocals to drive their way through the sludgy riffs. Bison, Bison is playing at Plew’s Brews on Saturday, October 27th in honor of Nofest’s Plewsapalooza. Go and enjoy an entire day of rocking North Portland bands, just don’t be surprised when you wake up with a bangover on Sunday. – Benjamin Toledo
