YOB

With songs regularly averaging upward of ten minutes (and sometimes as much as 20 and beyond), Portland,OR'sYOBareclearlynot a commercial heavy metal band, but rather fuse elements of doom, sludge, space, andprogressiverockintointerestingcombinations so as to belie their bloated girth. Founded in 2000 by vocalist/guitarist MikeScheidt,withbassistLowell Iles anddrummer Gabe Morley, YOB issued 2002's Elaborations of Carbon before admitting a newrhythmsection ofIsamuSato (bass) andTravis Foster (drums), and fast-delivering ensuing efforts Catharsis (2003), The IllusionofMotion (2004),andThe Unreal NeverLived (2005). Each garnered more acclaim than the last, and the final pair reflectedthatgrowth by findingtheband plucked fromtiny local label exile by the historic Metal Blade Records.
