Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words, YOB has achieved legendary status due to their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. Formed in 1996 in Eugene, Oregon under the leadership of doom metal mastermind Mike Scheidt on guitars and vocals, the group initially released a three song demo tape in 2000. From 2002-2005 the band released an album a year; »Elaborations Of Carbon«, »Catharsis«, »The Illusion Of Motion«, and »The Unreal Never Lived«. Despite all the momentum, YOB disbanded in 2006.

In 2008 the band returned from hiatus and has remained strong ever since with Travis Foster on drums and Aaron Rieseberg on bass. Reinvigorated and reinspired, YOB released »The Great Cessation« in 2009. Doom with a psychedelic twist, a sound that Pitchfork referred to as “cosmic doom.” For 2011’s »Atma«, YOB took a more organic approach to recording, opting to track everything at once. Three year later, the group released »Clearing The Path To Ascend«, a record hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of the year.

After a near death experience with acute diverticulitis, Scheidt emerged with new insights and a new sense of self, all of which was poured into the bands most recent release, 2018’s »Our Raw Heart«, a Yob album unlike any other. »Our Raw Heart« is a brilliant musical progression in the YOB continuum. Across seven riveting compositions of enormous volume and pensive, transcendental beauty, YOB bleed out their own organic universe of ultimate doom.

YOB is:
Mike Scheidt – Vocals/Guitar
Aaron Rieseberg – Bass
Travis Foster – Drums
