Lovelessness is the fourth release from the Canadian sludge collective known as Bison B.C., and on this record they bravely deal with love lost and the isolation that follows. Their latest step in the evolutionary ladder, Lovelessness, has some real honesty and straightforwardness about it, which could possibly stem from Farwell?s lyrical focus but is more than likely borne from his song-writing experience (he wrote this record on his own). The slow and gnarly pace of ?An Old Friend? begins Lovelessness, taking its sweet time waking from a deep slumber, content to churn with similar frequency to the style perfected by YOB. ?An Old Friend? is characteristic of Bison B.C.?s fondness for extending songs lengths, and granted the majority of what follows continues to encroach on the eight minutes plus mark, Bison B.C. avoid smothering you with the tedious repetition of doom riffs played ad nauseam. ?Anxiety Puke/Lovelessness? flips the approach of the previous song: the first section, ?Anxiety Puke?, skating for the gates and channelling the lawless energy of youth through its dishevelled punk attitude, all before exhausting itself and passing out on waves of sustained chords, as the second section??Lovelessness??ensues; sounding not unlike a queasier version of Unsane, jammed with those signature bass heavy grooves and pained screams, all of which have been commendably cut to tape by producer, Sanford Parker. Forget the decorative adjectives and the wild imagery associated with this band?s name and music?Lovelessness is metal grounded in reality, the kind that deals with real, every-day emotion. This is blood music at its best.
