Seeing alt rock heroes Failure the other night terraform glistening space rock imaginary worlds in a small Boston club made me just so thankful even more than usual for inspired bands who don’t give a damn what others think they ought to do. Sludge giants Yob certainly fall into that category.
This September the trio will release the follow up to Atma, entitled Clearing The Path To Ascend. A purge, a dousing, a deep spelunking of the soul, Yob can’t help but move earth and create beauty out of mystery. The power and personal growth in their work is perfect for Neurot Recordings,
Prog, doom and drone combine with poetic and wailed vocals to create pure release.
Comments vocalist Mike Scheidt, “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.”
Behold the artwork that will adorn this work, and check out the track listing below:
