2/25/2005 - YOB


Starting in 1996, founding member Mike Scheidt started creating and destroying ideas that would become the foundation for one of DOOM metals most shining hopefuls-YOB. The first three song self-titled demo (Mike Scheidt on guit, bass and vox and Greg Ocon, session drummer) was submitted to Stonerrock.com in 1999, sending shockwaves into the stoner/DOOM scene worldwide. This demo was a bold statement of intent: uncompromising HEAVY DOOM METAL.Within YOB's sound, which is equal parts SLEEP, Burning Witch, Neurosis, High On Fire and Electric Wizard, YOB has accomplished songcraft that is as much their own sound as it is paying homage to the DOOM metal greats of the past and present.
