YOB Complete Work On New Album 'Atma'

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Wednesday, June 22, 2011


American doom metal gods YOB have completed work on their new album of colossal doom metal art, “Atma”.

Following in the footsteps of its predecessors and continuing to strengthen the YOB legacy, one in which was given new life with their comeback album “The Great Cessation” in 2009, “Atma” is the defining YOB album that is the result of having conquered that mountain, overcoming adversary, and being victorious during the many years of doom metal dominance and culmination.

By combining the sheer monolithic solar bursting heaviness YOB have always been known to deliver, along with summoning a dynamic beauty and depth like never before, “Atma” is the album that will once again re-define the essence of modern day doom metal.  A pillar unleashed, one that will set new standards in extreme music like no other album released this year.

To be released officially on August 16th and featuring a guest appearance by Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS on two tracks and artwork courtesy of Stevie Floyd of DARK CASTLE, tracklisting for “Atma” goes as follows:

1.    Prepare The Ground
2.    Atma
3.    Before We Dreamed Of Two
4.    Upon The Sight Of The Other Shore
5.    Adrift In The Ocean

An MP3 of the track ‘Prepare The Ground’ can be heard HERE
