“Our Raw Heart”
Our Raw Heart
Talk about heavy beauty. YOB’s new album, “Our Raw Heart”, is filled with beauty: beautiful vocals, great guitar riffs, thundering bass that carries the song, and percussion riffs that fill the spaces and create a unified whole. YOB has always been one of the bands to play complex, blues-based heavy metal (think Robin Trower) without sacrificing the heavy roots of the genre. This is thinking man’s metal. As their press states:
Across seven riveting compositions of enormous volume and pensive, transcendental beauty, YOB bleed out their own organic universe of ultimate doom.
This is beautiful music. Comprised of Mike Scheidt – Guitar, Vocals; Aaron Rieseberg – Bass; andTravis Foster – Drums, this is what heavy metal could and should be.
