YOB is Travis Foster (drums), Aaron Rieseberg (bass) and Mike Scheidt (vocals/guitar). “YOB's eighth album, Our Raw Heart, is a riveting document of Scheidt's year,” said Rolling Stone in an online feature. “A gauntlet of sickness and health, clarity and confusion, the record wrestles with mortality and ultimately perseveres.” Decibel Magazine, in their July cover story said “one of the byproducts” of Scheidt’s illness “is a brilliant new album that takes the YOB blueprint of punishingly heavy, delightfully angular doom/sludge into unexplored areas of heart-breaking melody and triumphant resolve.” The album has won accolades from the Associated Press (“Yob… swing effortlessly between menacing distortion and hushed reverie”), NPR (“…the group’s sprawling gravity and thunderous majesty have taken an introspective turn…”), Pitchfork (“…metal that sounds sensuous, bellicose, and jubilant all at once”).
