They play here in Portland all the time. Their singer dude has started to play solo acoustic shows here a bunch as well.

They are great.

Yob's Atma is excellent. I like.

I am not very familiar with the band, though. Will abstain for the time being.

Everything points to the conclusion that I've been missing out big time with this band, will have to get aboard eventually.

I bought Atma a while ago on a whim. Initially I was a bit unsure (I think it was the vocals) but it has become one of my favorurite records of the last 12 Months.

I particularly love the title track when it breaks down into the chugga chugga riff.

Awesome!

I'd never heard of them before seeing this. Today at work I've been listening to this live set from the Roadburn Fest -

I'm liking it a lot.

Has anyone managed to pre-order a copy of the new LP from Europe without having to pay a ludicrous USD 36 dollar postal fee from the Relapse.com site?

It is making a copy almost 60 bucks which is just silly.

I've ordered records from smaller US concerns and paid a damn sight less for delivery.

They are completely crushing live. Like, just bludgeoning.

Not Crap. just Not.
Waffles? several, mostly to do with Metal, and why I don't like it, so not entirely their fault.

No Crap, with some waffles. I'm not crazy about their recorded stuff due to the vocals, but I saw them open for Neurosis and they were fantastic.

I also enjoy Lumbar, which features Yob's Mike Scheidt...but also Tad Doyle!

They are playing at this festival, this Saturday.

That lineup has got even me, an old-guy who hates festivals, thinking about going.

Yob is a tremendous live band, as was mentioned.

It's odd to me that people don't like the vocals. Scheidt is one of the only metal vocalists I don't hate.

Pre-ordered the new record. Seems very promising from Mike's description:

After seeing them on Friday, I can totally attest to this. I've been to plenty of heavy shows, but YOB are on another level.

I'm only familiar with The Unreal Never Lived, but it's really great. Cool mix between swirling, transcendentally heavy psych and ambitious song structure without relying on prog or doom cliches. Good shit, I look forward to getting into their other records.

It's taken me a while to get around to giving it my full attention, but Clearing the Path to Ascend has been on constant repeat for me this entire week. I've liked all their other records that I've heard, but this is the first one that really grabbed and shook me.

NC, nary a waffle.

Ten reasons why Yob are the best thing that ever happened.

Postby Volume One on Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:46 am

Ten reasons why Yob are the best thing that ever happened.

There is only one guitarist / vocalist, but he plays like he's three people and sings like he's ten people.

There's a deep, sincere pursuit of self-actualisation evident in everything they do. That's it's purpose.

They are seven albums in, and there isn't a moment wasted on any of them. Pick any song off any album. It will be awesome, because they all are. And they keep getting better.

When the big, all consuming, soul crushing riffs come, they're always as full and musical as possible. It's not just heavy for heavy's sake. They will take you somewhere.

There's always more going on than you think. However long the song, attention has been given to the key signature of every element; there's nothing unnecessary, but there's a constant firing off of finely honed and exquisitively mapped-out weird little honks, tweets and farts (and that's not just the diverticulitis). Any listen to them online or downloaded is not going to do justice to that. You need it all.

They are so much more than the category they get put in; they're not a doom band. Okay, some of it is doomy, but there's a depth charged positivity through all of it. It's uplifting. You go through the heavy to get brought into the light again - that's the purpose of the heavy.

Mike Scheidt's name is Mike Scheidt. That is more punk rock than your name.

He's a really inspiring person. Watch any interview with him. He goes to the heart of it every time. He's an honest person and his music reflects that.

When they write a belter, it's a fucking belter. See 'Prepare The Ground', 'Nothing To Win', or the majestic 'Quantum Mystic'.

Mike nearly died this year. His intestines decided they'd had enough of messing around. But he didn't die, he got better, and Yob live. Be thankful you share the world with this band.
