The Great Cessation was their peak for me, it's a monster of an album, everything up to that was bloody good, too. They slipped a bit after it IMO and I lost interest but I'll check this one out.

Pre-ordered the record/hoodie bundle without hearing a note from this.

Glad to still have Mike Scheidt alive and making music.

Hopefully they'll tour here again, Whelan's show was a blinder in 2016.

This is great, really enjoying it. Will take a few goes to see how it holds up to CTPTA, but so far it's excellent.

Monster album, great development.

Also help me out - I have googled but cant find - did Yob ever put out a Clearing tshirt? I would fucking love one in grey if it ever existed...

I am a very recent convert to Yob. I listened to the new album this evening and it sounds immense. It covers an incredible amount of musical ground.

There is a lot going on in it, even compared to CTPTA, which does a lot of the same styles but is a little more refined or restrained - Not in a bad way at all mind, I love that album a lot too, no complaints about it.

I don't remember them at the time of release but there was a hoodie with the backprint of the cover. Would also love one in grey, it's really savage artwork, one of my favourite album covers in years.

Cannot believe how good this is. Have spun it over and over.

On the first track and it sounds deadly. First track has a 'Marrow' vibe to it, which is one of their best ever tracks. Vocals are totally deadly, somewhere between Udo from Accept and Brent Hinds in the clean sections, and equal part Tom G Warrior and Neurosis in the heavy.

Yeah it's a fantastic album.

Not sure it's as good as CTPTA (my personal favourite Yob album), but it's crazy that 7/8 albums into their career they seem to be peaking, most bands are treading water by then.

trying to get into it at the moment following the Earl's waxing lyrical. Not previously a YOB fan as I've found them dull and the vocals irritating...unsure about this so far, though 'Beauty in Falling Leaves' is very enjoyable.

I'd honestly never heard of these guys before but this album is superb. Some staggeringly emotive tunes and to my ears, the vocals are quite like Chris Cornell in places. Going to be checking out their back catalogue now for sure. Great stuff.
