Yob @ Saint Vitus, 2/10/2013
YOB

Yob played their first of two NYC shows last night at a sold-out Saint Vitus (2/10), snagging support from Hull and Bezoar. The show is part of a BV/Invisible Oranges-sponsored short run of dates for the Portland crew, who play again at Saint Vitus tonight (2/11) with Batillus and Sea of Bones. Tickets are still available for tonight's show (which is on the verge of sell out), highly recommended.

There are plenty of doom bands out there that understand the power of a great riff and an impressive vocal, but what separates Yob from the pack is something entirely different. The trio's live show incorporates a swing -- a groove that deviates from standard pacing and hits off of the traditional downbeats. They're almost hard to headbang along to for the most part, but when they do lock in it just makes those parts seem more muscular and menacing.

More pictures and video from Sunday's show are below.

YOB was brilliant! Thanks for rattling Brooklyn! Wish I could be there tonight, as a YOB and Batillus show is hard to beat. I saw that combo at LPR. YOB is DOOM!

Metal bands are the new hippie jam bands because they are so predictable in the carbon copy music and silly identical look. Not a very inventive genre thats for sure.

That Yob video was boring as hell. Holy shit theres so many of these "doom" or trendy metal bands that sound alike.
