You should probably halt whatever it is you’re involved in right now because sludge metal group YOB are streaming their entire upcoming album and that means you should listen to it, because everything else is pointless. The album is called Clearing The Path To Ascend and consists of four rather long and atmospheric songs that fans are sure to be listening to on repeat for the next couple weeks. The album is scheduled for release on Septermber 2nd with Neurosis’s own label Neurot Recordings.
You can find the stream right here.
Clearing The Path To Ascend will be YOB’s seventh album to date and the follow up to 2011′s Atma. CTPTA was recorded at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Oregon and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Beastmilk, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering.
Vocalist Mike Scheidt recently commented on the release:
“Writing this album felt like being plugged into a main. Emotionally, it’s our heaviest. But it also has some real beauty and light. We dug the deepest we ever have to get to the heart of these tunes.”
