Attention all fans of spaceward soaring sludge!!! In 2010, blackened doom-mongers yet all-around nice guys Yob left their Pacific Northwest environs to travel to Europe, appearing at the Roadburn Festival in Holland, which we know from experience to be just about the best fest that any metal/psych fan could ever hope to attend. Yob now join the elite ranks of such bands as Wolves In The Throne Room, Earthless, Bong, Church Of Misery, and most recently White Hills, in having their Roadburn performance released on disc! In this case (as it was with WITTR's), they've included both a cd and a dvd in the swank digipack package, Yob's show having been professionally filmed in no-frills fashion with multiple cameras as well as audio-recorded. If you're a fan, pretty much all you need to know about something like is is, is the audio/video quality any good? And was their performance killer? The answer to all those questions is, yes... Yob slay live, and this release will prove it to anyone who hasn't yet seen 'em. In the hour allotted, they do four sprawling songs, "Quantum Mystic", "Burning The Altar", "Kosmos", and "The Great Cessation"; that's 2 from their most-recent-at-the-time The Great Cessation album, and 2 from their previous slab to that, The Unreal Never Lived. Epic and intense as you might expect. There's no difference between the cd and dvd tracklists, it's of course the same songs either way, but if you want to SEE how heavy they are as well as hear 'em, you've got the visuals option. The set is structured nicely, crushing with riffy heaviness almost from the grinding get-go, but then "letting up" to space out psychedelically towards the end... (aQuarius Records)
