Metal Insider is currently streaming “Seas Of Titan” from Michigan fuzz rock collective BISON MACHINE. The tune serves as the title track of the band’s impending new full-length, set to drop later this month via Small Stone.
Issues the band of the track, “‘Seas Of Titan’ is not only the title track but the centerpiece of the record; a journey in itself placing the listener on the tangerine tinted shores of Saturn’s largest moon; a place man is realizing has primordial signs for potential life to take hold. Timeless energy grips this currently empty landscape. The ebb and flow of the tides of liquid methane shaping the surface for ages before time and eons after. What stories will come of it as we venture into the solar system and conquer these ‘dead worlds?’ The story within ‘Seas Of Titan’ picks up right when we dip our foot into the proverbial ocean that is outer space…”

Progressive and intense, the eight smoking tracks that comprise Seas Of Titan find BISON MACHINE melding the best of classic heavy rock a la Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Captain Beyond, and MC5 with a forward-thinking style that is as much class as it is likely to show up in a loincloth. Rooted now in Hamtramck, Michigan, the band are hungry to the point of starving and bring a spirit to their latest work that serves to remind why they made guitars electric in the first place. Seas Of Titan was recorded by Al Sutton (Five Horse Johnson, Don Cabellero) and Steve Lehane (Sasquatch, Luder, The Black Dahlia Murder) at Rustbelt Studios, mastered by Chris Goosman (La Chinga, Gozu, Acid King, The Glasspack) at Baseline Audio Labs and features artwork by Alan Forbes (The Black Crowes, Lucifer, Earthless, Ghost). Wrote Live In Michigan of the group’s output, “The music of BISON MACHINE moves from sweaty fist pumping riffs to grooves full of trippy bliss.” Fans of Kadavar, Graveyard, Blues Pills, and the like, pay heed.
BISON MACHINE’s Seas Of Titan will be released September 27th on CD and digitally via Small Stone. A limited-edition vinyl edition will also be released through Kozmik Artifactz in conjunction with Small Stone. Preorders are available at the label’s Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION where first single, “The Tower,” can be streamed.
Since 2010, BISON MACHINE has been plying their trade in the dank, vinyl-smelling basements of Detroit, Michigan, the birthplace of a rock tradition for brashness and all-in physicality to music that the group lovingly upholds. Seas Of Titan is the band’s first album for Small Stone and a record years in the making. Since getting their start in early 2015 with the critically-lauded Hoarfrost, the four-piece have spent time putting out material in drips and drabs — a video here, a split there — all the while honing their craft on stages throughout the greater Midwest and beyond. This has all been in the name of chipping away at the marble that would become an awaited sophomore outing; a long-player from a band whose reputation already precedes them among the converted and who leave nothing unsaid in their sweating-blood approach to rock and roll.
“…the entire album feels like a ride around an interstellar roller-coaster, hitting us with riff after riff.” — Heavy Blog Is Heavy
