  2. Exorcism of the Host
  3. Doom #2
  4. The Illusion Of Motion
"With The Illusion of Motion, YOB have combined the strengths of their past work into one of the better albums of 2004. From the slow build up of “Ball of Molten Lead” to the sprawling, epic title track, YOB take doom and claim it as their own. Singer/guitarist Mike S layers his voice over the kind of riffs you could drown in. Mike, Isamu Sato (bass), and Travis Foster (drums) make a wholly unique band, taking the intricate beauty of Isis and Neurosis and merging it with the grind and atmosphere of bands like Electric Wizard and Ufomammut. The Illusion of Motion is a rarity – an album without equals, the kind that becomes a benchmark for an entire genre."

"When I first uncorked this motherfucker I was so overwhelmed I nearly fell to my knees and wept. When I dared listen to it again, I felt aware of the revolutions of the universe. My first impulse is to say that it's YOB's best album, but you don't just throw shit like that around with a band like YOB. Their first two records number among the most compelling and inspired documents of heaviness to appear in the sonic realm.The point is, the music leaves nothing to be desired, and if it does leave something to be desired it's simply more of itself. Maybe that's why The Illusion of Motion towers over everything. The repetitive sections, interlaced with the most unimaginably maniacal melodic and textural details, sound more devastating and yet more meditative than ever before. This is by far the most brutal and beautiful music YOB has released."

"Now we are presented with The Illusion of Motion and once again my feable brain was unable to comprehend what was about to be unleashed upon me. These tracks just flew out of the stereo and covered everything around me. Is this recording 55 minutes long or is it eternal? Because it never really leaves you. The magnitude of musicianship that YOB has is missed by many. They don't understand the emotional effects that music of this nature has. They are unable to see into the MUSIC, the DOOM. Doom is what these cats in YOB are all about. The Illusion of Motion is SICK."

Atma (CD) (Import)

Label: Profound Lore   Origin: Canada
Guest appearance by Scott Kelly (Neurosis). YOB have once again created another opus of doom metal mastery that will go down as one of the great American doom metal albums of our age (even though you can pretty much say that with any album within YOB’s repertoire). But with “Atma” the Eugene, Oregon three-piece, led by vocalist guitarist Mike Scheidt, have unleashed a new level of dynamics and depth with an album in which many will call the band’s magnum opus.

Catharsis (Re-issue) (CD) (Import)

Label: Profound Lore   Origin: Canada
Re-mastered from the original tapes by Tad Doyle. Features new artwork and presentation design by Aaron Edge. Liner notes by Mike Schedit. Fuck yeah! 3 songs...just under 50 minutes. If you haven't heard YOB, now is a good time. It's heavy driving doom that slays and punishes the whole time. Those that have seen or heard YOB only know the kind of heaviness they possess. Mike's vocals are incredible- the high range and the vibrato sends across a message that is a fine ...

Live at Roadburn 2010 (with Bonus DVD) (2CD) (Import)

Label: Roadburn   Origin: Netherlands
Includes a bonus DVD of the performance. “We’re gonna play four songs and that will be one hour” says Yob mainman Mike Scheidt at the beginning of this Roadburn 2010 set, thus letting the audience know exactly what to expect – cosmic, sprawling psychedelic doom of the highest order (no pun intended). Yob are an intimidatingly dense enough proposition when recorded in a studio, and live they pull no punches and give no quarter. Yob are a well-oiled, fluid doom metal mac...

The Great Cessation (CD) (Import)

Label: Profound Lore   Origin: Canada
Doom is meant to be dour and slow, but here it's also furious. The riffs, the vocals, the deliberate, pummeling rhythm (courtesy of YOB alumni Travis Foster on drums and new bassist Aaron Reiseberg) – it seethes from start to finish, and as a statement of intent for The Great Cessation, you can't get any better.

The Unreal Never Lived (CD)

Label: Metal Blade   Origin: USA
How do you describe an album that starts with an explosion, ends with Gregorian chants, and has nothing but genius in between the two? That’s the only problem I have with The Unreal Never Lived, the fourth album from Portland, Oregon’s YOB. It’s left me speechless. While the basic DNA of YOB stays the same – epic, dense riffs, otherworldly vocals that can soar to Geddy Lee-like heights and then plummet to a death metal growl, a thunderous rhythm section – what ...
