Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Warthur
4 stars Offering a set of four sludgy doom metal epics (not one track less than 10 minutes), YOB's Clearing the Path to Ascend combines the gnostic spiritual themes of the likes of Om with a crushingly heavy set of riffs. This isn't a matter of brushing some leaves off the path - this is about getting a bulldozer in to clear a serious blockage.

At any particular point there's often some other influence creeping in next to the doom metal - religious music, black metal shrieks, folk-tinged post-rock, all fuse somehow with the monolithic riffs in order to provide a richer than expected experience.
