For someone who is poor, struggling with any number of things, searching for meaning, transcendence….if they are able to reflect their real feelings into their medium, it’ll be medicine and someone else may be able to resonate and have it be medicine for them too. For someone who has wealth, and they have disillusionment, are still depressed, having to work on their own bigger questions that wealth cannot solve, mortality, their work can still have amazing power. It’s all about being 100% there. – Mike Scheidt
So much has been written elsewhere about Yob that it is hardly fair to call them the “next big thing” or “best kept secret in Metal” anymore. Yob in 2014 were nothing short of a presence, a band who follow their own muse and in the course of doing so have re-invigorated many other bands – unsure of what path to take in economic times of uncertainty – to do the same. You may be tired of music critics slobbin’ Yob’s knobs, but the band deserve every accolade thrown their way. Through depression, trials and tribulations and anything life throws at them, Yob prove the way out is through.
It was a pleasure to interview Mike Scheidt about one of the most revered and discussed metal records of 2014, the pure soul revolt of Clearing The Path To Ascend.
