YOB share 15-minute “Unmask the Spectre” from new LP (listen)

by Ian Chainey

YOB at the Bell House, 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Oregeon crushers YOB have unveiled a new track from the forthcoming Clearing the Path to Ascend. This one is called “Unmask the Spectre” and it clocks in at a massive 15-plus minutes of outstanding YOB-ness. It opens with reverbed, ringing guitars before blowing up your subwoofer with Mike Scheidt’s growl and patented pendulum groove. From there, it explores the two sections by way of a multitude of variations, including soaring solos and Scheidt’s eagle-screech and full-lung belting. YOB’s seventh full-length will be out via Neurot Recordings on September 2 (Relapse will handle the vinyl on September 15) and it’s available for preorder now.

YOB will be playing Portland, Oregon’s Hoverfest on August 23 and then will set out to Europe with Pallbearerwho also debuted some new music today — in September and October.
