Yob Biography - Yob Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands


2009 album from the reunited cosmic Doom Metal band. One of the heaviest and most respected bands in Metal, Yob are renowned for their unique brand of epic, crushing sludge doom. Founded in 1996 in Eugene, Oregon, the band developed a reputation as the heaviest Doom Metal three-piece ever alongside the legendary Sleep. In 2006, however, vocalist / guitarist Mike Schedit announced the group’s split after three albums on labels such as Abstract Sounds and Metal Blade Records.

  • This is a cool lil’ record…riffin’ and sludgin’…but 5 stars???

    …come on, now. Where do we put “Through Silver in Blood”, “Take as Needed for Pain”, “Born Too Late”, “Bullhead”, “Master of Reality”…

    …the kids today just get too excited. Sure, YOB reformed after the craptastic High on Fire clone Middian hit hard times, and we are all happy to have them back, but let us try to retain some decorum here.

    BJ’s are nice, but making sweet love with the riff is where it’s at.

    This is a BJ. Good times, but you can’t live on it…there’s more out there…but here ain’t bad at all. No sir. The title track bumps this up a star-voyage into the deep.

  • This is truly a blessing straight from Hell!!! HUGE sound and super ominous vocals. When I heard that Yob was done I was very bummed, but this album has more than made up for that bleak time. I’m thinking this might be their best album yet.

  • Brutal, sad, eerie, haunting took me from slow, fist in the air head banging with burning the altar, to the triumphant otherwordly vocal hooks on the Lie that is sin to the vocals on the great cessation practically moving me to tears. Yob is… unreal..

  • It’s radd to see the return of YOB after the horrible legal fiasco Mike’s other band Middian got mixed up in. that said, The Great Cessation might be YOB’s best record yet, and it’s certainly the angriest. They don’t break from their formula, though – glacial-paced, Godzilla-stomping doom with some Dio-esque vocals, maybe a little black metal influence vocally. It’s the guitar playing and tone that’s the hook here, though – Mike’s sound is god-like, and you should get familiar if you’re interested in the sonic possiblities of modern doom.

  • The new YOB disk kicks out DOOM in a way only Mike Scheidt can unleash…..sweet “quietudes” followed by thunderous, slow, skull-splitting sonic pleasure!!!!
