I heard the song “Illusion of Motion” on a local metal radio station and couldn’t believe what I was hearing!! I picked up this album and the newest release THE UNREAL NEVER LIVED. I gotta tell you, this is THE SLOWEST doom metal I have ever heard, save for Electric Wizard. Picture Sabbath being slowed WAY DOWN to 16rpm and have Geddy Lee sing over it, and that’s a basic over-view of what YOB is. Man, I totally recommend this album!!
This is more for the doom, and not as much on the stoner as the previous album and their demo. But still worth adding to the collection. For me it is a no brainer b/c I like the doom even though this is on relapse, it is still good.
There are not enough words to describe this disc. Mammoth, gargantuan riffs & thunderous drumming are merely backdrops to Mike S. vokills. Very emotive… the title track will give you the chills when the vocals come in. Get this & every YOB c.d.. & pick up the “middian” disc b4 it disappears!
A friend of mine told me to check this album out and may I say he was correct in doing so. This album is awesome. Some of the best doom metal I have heard in a long time. IT has a mix of Sabbath to a little Floyd to Sleep. They are on metalblade now so maybe will be getting a little more respect in the metal circle and perhaps play some of the festivals. These songs are of epic proportion. Please check this album out, you won’t regret it.
