"Black Blood"


“Black Blood” marks the third instalment in the Bionic discography and is by far their best and most aggressive moment yet. Their new album sees them breaking new ground with their own hard brutalizing mix of punk meets 70's rock with stabs of Devo and psychedelia, while still keeping the explosive, juggernaut intensity that their live shows are renowned for. They've enlisted the musical help of friends in the burgeoning Montreal musical community like Tricky Woo, The Besnard Lakes, Silver Mt. Zion, Land Of Talk, Xavier Caffeine and even a marching band complete with cheerleaders. Make no bones about it, "Black Blood" is as rocking as it gets but still manages to push the envelope and prove that loud rock music can still evolve out of the mire.

Available as Digipak CD and 180 gram vinyl LP.
