There’s no doubt that Oregon’s Yob is one of the most recognizable names in the underground metal game of thrones. Their 2009 LP ‘The Great Cessation’ saw them reunited for the first time in many years and brought them to heights of recognition that they’d always deserved but hadn’t achieved. The world was finally ready for Yob. In 2011 Yob are now firmly back, tour ready and have delivered a striking 5 song statement in the form of Atma. 20 Buck Spin has the honor of releasing Yob’s latest as a gatefold 2xLP.
“Yob might be one of the best bands in North America.” - NYTimes“Atma is raw, passionate and foreboding and well worth taking the time to check out.” PureGrainAudio.com“Six full-lengths in, they inspire no less awe than ever, and one can only stand and pity whoever tries to top them in the rest of this year.” TheObelisk.net“This will be high in the top five lists of many doom fans and writers by the end of the year...” Doomantia.com“This ability to convincingly unite the old and new schools of doom is a prime key to the success of YOB, against all adversity, with Atma once again serving as bold, mature proof.” Metal-Army.com
