Yob – Our Raw Heart


Yob – Our Raw Heart
Relapse Records – 2018
Doom, Rock, Metal, Sludge
Rated: ****

The record that came before, Clearing The Path To Ascend, was so freakin beautiful it became an instant doom metal classic. It reached the Number 2 position of the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown of that year and everyone longed for more of Mike Scheidt and his Yob buddies. But life happens… A severe intestinal illness had Sir Scheidt dancing on a tightrope, which could have ended on the wrong end of the wire. But luckily a hugely fat grey cat came to him as spirit animal and helped him survive. All that angst, feat and worry is now translated into what became Our Raw Heart. It is perhaps not another instant classic, but with Beauty In Falling Leaves, they do have another majestic track on their hands. It will be choking you with emotion and harrowing visions. It will be pummeling you raw with pounding riffs and grate your soul with a bone chilling voice. And that is how Our Raw Heart grabs you and sits you down, it will speak to you and philosophize about it all. And that resounds in their music. Oppressive and suffocating on one hand and expansive and progressive on the other end. And with that Yob continues along a their very own Path
