Aaron of Yob at Bell House, May 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
You may recognize the sunny-haired Aaron Rieseberg of Norska. The Portland native currently plays bass for doom titans Yob and will take both projects on the road in the early fall and their tour schedule is below -- no NYC date unfortunately.
Norska's appearances are in celebration of the re-release of the band's debut, due on vinyl for the first time via Brutal Panda Records. Much like Yob, Norska focus their energies on pummeling doom/sludge dirge and purge, as exhibited on the fourth track from the release, "Cholera," streaming below. Look for the disc on September 18.
Speaking of Yob, Mike Scheidt played Saint Vitus this weekend, check out pictures and a review.
