I had never thought of Bison as a Mastodon rip-off band. I've always told people they sound a lot like High on Fire, though (because to me they do). I also think Dark Ages is a pretty damn good album.
I really couldn't get into Static Tensions for some reason. I like Scapegoat, but the rest of the album didn't catch me. I will give it another shot soon. Maybe now that I'm into Spiral Shadow, I can't get back into it.

Anywhere else I go, anytime I bring up Bison B.C., they always claim they ripped off Mastodon. I don't get it either.

Thanks man. I'm glad you're digging Judgement Day.
