Mike Scheidt at Saint Vitus in February (more by Caroline Harrison)
Mike Scheidt

Mike Scheidt is having a good week. We mentioned a couple days ago, he's getting a new band off the ground with Tad Doyle of TAD and Aaron Edge of Himsa. Today, Profound Lore announced some more exciting news: Catharsis, his main band YOB's long out-of-print 2003 classic, has been remastered on its 10th anniversary by Doyle and re-artworked by Edge for a November release. From their statement:

Re-mastered from the original tapes by Tad Doyle, giving "Catharsis" a more complete and warmer sound than the original, along with featuring new artwork and presentation design by Aaron Edge, and liner notes by Mike Schedit, this re-issue of "Catharsis" is the definite presentation of this album with its original tracklisting in place.
There you have it -- perhaps the best doom metal band in the game is reissuing a nicer-sounding version of the album that launched their career. Fuck yeah. The PL post also includes a track from the remaster, "Ether," which smokes; stream it below, and keep an eye out for its release on November 12.

The only thing that bothers me about listening to YOB is the fact that I can't stop thinking I've now reached the edge of the beauty, brilliance and grandiosity more extreme forms of metal can reach. It's the first time metal enlightened me the way this band does but it's also the first time I'm afraid it has reached a point where it's hard to evolve from here onward. ´╗┐
