We are just three weeks away from YOB unleashing 'Atma', what is sure to be the most talked about doom metal album of the entire year. August 16th sees Profound Lore Records reveal an album that has already been universally praised from music press, both in-and-out of the metal genre. In fact, the New York Times recently said of ‘Atma’, “it requires you to lower your heart rate, then gives you delirious highs.” This is the perfect summation of ‘Atma’, it is slow, pounding and incredibly calculated to give the listener an experience completely unique of anything else they will hear in 2011.
YOB are two-thirds of their way through the current headline run that kicks off their touring cycle for 'Atma' but, fear not, the band will be on the road quite a bit throughout the remainder of 2011.
