    Another Masterpiece. Mike is a spiritual guru which transcends through the lyrics... Crushing riffs and mood swings within the album are Yob's trade mark. I've been a fan since day one and they just never cease to surprise me. Each album is evolving into what i promulgate is the best 3 Trio DooM band on the planet.

Each album is evolving into what i promulgate is the best 3 Trio DooM band on the planet. Had a conversation with mike after a concert and he is a very deep esoteric man and shines a light on those who are near him. So happy you survived this near death experience and came out with this new sonic piece. Expand

    Our Raw Heart is a crushing and stirring doom metal affair, a cathartic album created after guitarist and vocalist Mike Scheidt suffered a severe episode of diverticulitis early last year. It shines with a rare beauty. The music ebbs and flows from ballad-like meditations reminiscent of Earth to the caustic sludge of Yob’s early records.

    The epic length of Our Raw Heart requires patience. While it unfolds slowly, the reward is big. It's shot through with musical invention and a clarity that makes it the new high-water mark in this trio's oeuvre.

    The band has spun joy out of its frontman’s gnarliest experience, making metal that sounds sensuous, bellicose, and jubilant at once.
