YOB, or Y.O.B., are an American doom metal act, formed in Eugene, Oregon, in 1996 by guitarist/vocalist Mike Scheidt who had previously played bass in the hardcore bands Chemikill and Dirty Sanchez. He was joined by drummer Greg Ocon and bass guitarist Lowell Iles. They released their debut album “Elaborations of Carbon in 2002 by which time Ocon and Iles had been replaced by former Lightweight drummer Gabe Morley and bassist Isamu Sato from the death metal band Thrombus. By their third album “The Illusion Of Motion” the drum stool was now occupied by Travis Foster. Sato and Foster left after Their fourth album “The Unreal Never Lived” in 2005 and the band officially split early 2006.

In 2008 the band reformed, the line-up now featuring Scheidt, Foster and new bass guitarist Aaron Reiseberg. This has been their most stable line-up and they released their latest album, the critically acclaimed “Clearing

YOB Atma

Album · 2011 · Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
bonnek
If their preceding album inspired me to terms like 'post-metal', 'experimental' and 'psych', Yob have very much returned to in-your-face doom-metal here, meaning 'MoR'-type Black Sabbath that gets further slowed down to a sludge pace, with nasal Ozzy-type crying and a dry, almost low-fi, garage sound reminding of Kyuss.

The sound, or rather mastering, is problematic here, this is probably the dullest sounding album I've ever heard, it's a constant drone of flat mid tones, with nothing in the lower or higher end of the spectrum. There's almost no space or dynamics in this sound at all. And that in combination with music that is also insistingly monotonous. No, it's not a winning combination. Quite a disappointment after the towering wall of sound on their preceding album.

The songwriting itself is quite satisfactory, it's back-to-basics down-to-earth doom sludge metal similar to the mentioned bands and Cathedral's early work. The droning riffs are entrancing, the vocals are vile, the mood is muddy and desolate, the intensity matches that of Neurosis. Really, all the ingredients for an excellent sludge album are here. I just wish it hadn't been mastered by someone in dire need for a hearing-aid.

'Atma' - Yob (6/10)

Doom metal. A genre dominated by crushing guitars, plodding rhythms, and a foreboding atmosphere. Such terms could begin to describe the sort of music that Yob make, a band based in Portland, Oregon. With their 2011 album 'Atma', Yob's doomy style of stoner metal is sure to please adherents of the genre, although there is not much more to the music here than is advertised. For epic, grimy doom metal rooted in the 1970's tradition, look no further.

Upon first listen to 'Atma', the closest thing I could compare Yob to would be a rawer Black Sabbath, fused with Mastodon, providing they were too busy refilling the bong water to focus on their more technical aspects. 'Atma' is a dirty-sounding, sludgy album, and filled up with throwback riffs from the time when metal was still getting up on its own two feet. The vocals start off sounding much like Ozzy Osbourne's, or even a vocalist from Mastodon; nasal and moody. As the album goes on though, Scott Kelly from the legendary post-metal act Neurosis comes in to make an appearance on two of the tracks, and his parts seem directly catered to him and the sort of music that Neurosis makes. Think the long, brooding sections of mellowness in 'The Eye Of Every Storm' and this will account for an elements of the music that Yob makes here. Barring that, Yob's heavier gears switch them into something of a retro-doom act; heavy as all hell, but fairly simplistic in its sound. This formula can be very fun and enjoyable at times, but the effect starts to wear off when the sound is drawn out much longer than feels appropriate. It is granted that a tenant of doom metal is to make drawn out compositions, but here, a little more variety or build-up in the way these songs develop would have done so much to make 'Atma' a grander experience.

'Adrift In The Ocean' is the greatest piece on the album, closing the album with more dynamic and dramatic tension than anything else on the album combined. Scott Kelly makes another cameo here, and while I don't care much for his vocals, they are used very well in the context of this style. Surely, Yob is not a band that fits into my tastes all that much; I find them a little uneventful, although the music can be very fun. There are great riffs here, and it is quite a good album, but there's not enough on 'Atma' to keep me coming back months from now.

Oregon-based doom metal act YOB have been making some of the genre's loudest, filthiest doom metal epics since their formation back in 1996, and their latest full-length outing is certainly no exception. Atma is five tracks of extremely slow and heavy doom metal, just as the genre was originally intended. Though this observation lacks significantly when it comes to variation and originality, YOB's raw and filthy attitude should certainly garner some attention within the metal community. Despite being a severely flawed album (in multiple departments), Atma may be worth an acquisition for people who still haven't gotten their fix of old school doom metal.

Stylistically, Atma is angst-ridden, sludge-induced doom metal with obvious nods in the direction of Electric Wizard, Neurosis, and Black Sabbath. Not the most original sound out there, but it can end up quite successful when done correctly. Unfortunately, Atma falls into the trap of becoming too repetitive and simplistic for its own good, often coming across as monotonous and even a bit boring. Despite the incredibly lengthy songs, most of them only have enough material to justify only a fraction of their current duration. The minimal variation between different songs makes listening to the entire album in one sitting even more of a daunting task. "Adrift in the Ocean" is really the only track that differs significantly from any others. The riffs are simply too unmemorable and generic to come even close to justifying a 55 minute playing time.

Although it may seem like I'm coming down extremely hard on Atma (which, in a sense, I am), the album isn't all bad. The musicianship, though not technically outstanding, is powerful and convincing in execution, and the production's raw and filthy sound suits the music perfectly. There are also a fair amount of high-quality riffs here, even if they still feel too drawn-out.

Atma wasn't an album that impressed me, to say the least, but YOB fanatics and die-hard doom metal fans may find more worth here than this humble reviewer. I know this album has been getting plenty of positive press attention since its release, so I must be in a slightly confused minority in this case. I just don't understand what all the fuss is about. 2 stars is the most I can give here, but check it out anyway if you think you may enjoy this one. More variation and originality will be crucial to my enjoyment, however.

Come with me, if you dare, into the uncharted sonic depths of the dense, murky musical ocean that is Yob. With every new release, Yob grows increasingly dynamic, layered and interesting to delve into. The Unreal Never Lived finds the band at it, dare I say it, most melodic to date. Not that they’re in any danger of being mistaken for Journey or anything, as there is still the bottomless mass of low end tonnage the band is known for.

But I do find bits of this album throwing dim shafts of melodic light from its plodding, hulking mass.”Quantum Mystic” is an instant doom metal classic! A strong, grooving tempo, plenty of slow staccato dynamics and a guitar sound like a gurgling tar pit get this album started off on the right, freakishly large, foot. “The Mental Tyrant,” a 21-minute gargantuan track, is like something the size of, say, The Great Wall Of China slowly oozing forward, unknowingly and uncaringly crushing everything in its path.; a monstrously heavy track that builds, epically climaxes and slithers back down again and the absolute highlight of the album.

Vocally, we’re pummeled with everything from unearthly death growls, to piercing shrieks, to somewhat decipherable enunciations all coming at you at any given time. The guitars are insanely heavy and possess a very wide, warm tone. The drums are, to coin an overused metal review cliche, truly like cannons exploding amidst the dirge. The bass? Forget about it – there are no words.

This album will sedate you, crush you and ultimately swallow your flattened, bloodied corpse all at once! Fans of Sleep, Neurosis, Electric Wizard and of course the almighty Black Sabbath drop whatever it is you’re doing right now and go get this album – and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
