WAR BISON: Acre: LP

Acre is War Bison’s second LP, and I have to admit I’ve never heard of them before, even though I live in the Bay. We orbit in slightly different punk circles, but they’ve played with the likes of Negative Approach, These Bastards, The Birth Defects, and War Crimes, so I guess I’ve just been ignorant to their presence. War Bison are a self described “SF Hardcore” band with tightly woven melodies that cross the line between metal into hardcore thrash and back again. Their clear and focused vocals that enunciate every word distinguishes their sound from the usual grizzly, distorted thrash vocals. It’s foreboding dark metal, and it’s tough. –Camylle Reynolds (Self-released, warbison.bandcamp)
