After the blatant ones, here comes the singular Yob. It is a massive beast that produces large slabs of slow music that can crush and hypnotize under the rule of great doom bordering on amazing with a gentle avalanche of sludge and some sadness in the singing. Yob could be said to remind of the heaviest parts of Goatsnake, or venturing in Cathedral territory - almost Burning Witch at times - with very different vocals, but they never go Candlemass-doom metal nor Skepticism-funeral nor Temple Of Void-doom-death, they do Yob, and it rocks! Slowly, but it rocks, even if it cannot be tagged stoner rock. They indeed have developed their own sound, it delivers a pleasing experience to rest the neuron and the aural conduits. I do not know which album is my favorite, probably The Illusion Of Motion for the mundane reason it is the first that I bought. Trivia: their singer does the vocals in the infinitely awesome Vhöl.

  1. Yes, YOB, moi j'aime beaucoup! Tu n'as pas entendu le seul LP de Middian? Groupe existant lors de la petite pause carrière de YOB. Le sound n'est pas très différent par rapport à YOB, un peu plus aggro peut-être. Middian s'est terminé après de troubles légales et du coup Yob s'est relancé. Drôle d'histoire, fort album qui en fait ne peut pas manque dans aucune collction YOB.

    2. Désolé, j'ai le CD mais actuellement il me manque le lecteur pour faire un rip moi-même. J'y penserai un jour...
