Robert Elderton I am very particular when it comes to heavy sounds these days. I read a review of the band and this album in The Wire and decided to take a listen. What impresses me about Yob is their dedication to their craft. They have clearly been playing for many years. This sound does not come from fly by night acts but from musicians restless and looking to advance the craft. Yob deserve every accolade. Well done.

about

From tragedy to triumph, YOB’s incredible 8th full-length recording was conceived amidst dire circumstances that nearly left frontman Mike Scheidt dead. Suffering from an extremely painful and potentially fatal intestinal disease, Scheidt miraculously recovered and reinvigorated the Oregon trio with a new sense of purpose for Our Raw Heart, an album informed by the will to survive. More exposed than ever both physically and emotionally, YOB bleed out seven riveting tracks of enormous volume and pensive, transcendental beauty across 75 minutes of ultimate doom. A brilliant musical progression in the YOB continuum, Our Raw Heart is the band at their most aggressive, impassioned and eclectic. The riffs are massive, the vocals captivating and the songwriting sublime. Existing in its own organic universe, Our Raw Heart is truly the band’s finest work to date and the apex achievement of what heavy music can accomplish.

Our Raw Heart was co-produced by the band and longtime collaborator Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Ore., with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive).

Track Name: Ablaze
Shining
Without cause
Every I
In every breath
Root
Unknown by time
Within
This ache of beyond

Wings in oceans vast
Swells in azure skies
Caring not for the ruse
Not for fear of Nothing(ness)
Shining in stars and stone

Unknown by time
This ache of beyond
Shining

Dreams
Of what
We are
Sown in fields of stars
Ablaze
In the heart
Of the beyond

Disguise
Of shadow and gold
This veil
Holds no sway
As we muse in the fray
The source ever remains
Shining
As it all falls away

Wings in oceans vast
Swells in azure skies
Caring not for the ruse
Not for fear of Nothing(ness)
Shining in stars and stone

Unknown by time
This ache of beyond
In stars and stone
Shining

Dreams
Of what
We are
Sown in fields of stars
Blaze
In the heart
Of the beyond
Track Name: The Screen
In the constant search
Restless one
Slowly learning why
It all comes undone
Ancient gifted wound
Ancestral rusted blade
Broken hilt-deep thrust
From before the shroud
Until pain has bled out
Out
Out
Ancient poison
Out
Out
Out
Onto the screen
Rise
Rise
Rise
In this moment
Rise
Rise
Rise
Quantum vision

My oath reaches the shore
Struck upon the chord
Vast chorus of song
Brings my heart to release

Searching seen through
Emptied one
Sensing old death
Sharing no house with it
In moments obscure
That which endures
Vibrates as stone
Flies as flesh
Witnessing clouds
Of millennia and form
From a vast still nature
The still in the storm

Until pain has bled out
Out
Out
Ancient poison
Out
Out
Out
Onto the screen
Rise
Rise
Rise
In this moment
Rise
Rise
Rise
Quantum vision

Ancient gifted wound
Ancestral rusted blade
Broken hilt-deep thrust
From before the shroud
Until the pain has bled out
Track Name: In Reverie
Entangled
Spun in confusion
In a world whose soul
Is taken
In freedom
Unbound power
That you hold in your hands
But don’t understand
Unquestioned
This source of disease
It brings a blindness
To drive every hate
No matter how lost
You find yourself
The sun rises still

Skin breathes mystery
Lungs reach in reverie
Free in eternal sea
Sink into the deep
Lungs reach in reverie

Tired
Of a weary mind
Whose vision is dust
Long dead life
Whatever you believe
In these red times
There is more
Than errors of sight
From another’s body
From another’s body, another’s flight
No matter the suffering
You find yourself
The sun rises still
Track Name: Beauty in Falling Leaves
As leaves fleeting fall from above
Under skies ever here
Darkness comes to the door
Table place set before its honored seat
The chase has come and gone
Yearning to be let go
Colors in the mirror
Better still, to inform
Skies ever here

Been this way throughout time
Been this way throughout my life
Your heart brings me home
Been this way throughout time
From the tumult of the heave
Not born of belief
Your heart brings me home

As seasons come here to rest
Lilting rays aglow
Obsidian flow
Fire hewn within the stone
Life that has come before
Looming fears of the wilt
Shadows at the door
Colors in the mirror

Been this way throughout time
Been this way throughout my life
Your heart brings me home
Been this way throughout my life
From the tumult of the heave
Not born of belief
Our nature redeemed
Unburden our grief
Your heart brings me home

Lifting off, renewed
Astral form in flight
Enthrall every hue
Unknown to our eyes
Every cell of being
Outside of mind
Mantra not apart
From ineffable heart

Endless worlds in endless mind
Caught in dreams of our own design
Dressed and groomed tradition dead
All around you the infinite
Seeing
Beauty in falling leaves
Track Name: Original Face
A drum of unrest
Beating in my chest
Within raging days
Pounding at the gate
Skin stretched too tight
Under fading light
Shapeless failing view
I must see it through
Must see it through
See it through

Sounding unto a greater life
Bring the devils
Seraphim
Bring the sorrow
That feeds on my skin
Sounding unto a greater sight
See the seer
The original face

There is nothing else
This is all there is
There is nothing else
The original face

Blister to the flame
Bared teeth within names
One beast brings its strength
One beast brings hunger
One beast topples mountains
Rigpa swallows them whole
Emergent rising view
I must see it through
Must see it through

Sounding unto a greater life
Bring the devils
Seraphim
Bring the leeches
Bleed the leeches
Sounding unto a greater sight
See the seer
The original face

Skin stretched too tight
Under fading light
Shapeless failing view
Must see it through

Blister to the flame
Bared teeth within names
Clear sight, Rigpa’s view
I must see it through
Must see it through
Track Name: Our Raw Heart
Sent unto the shore
Every grain of sand
Rivers quicken remembrance
Carried by a grace
Running in our veins
Ashes within clay
Shaped upon an earthen wheel
Pour into this vessel
Drained and filled again
Temple to a nameless soul
Beckoning my restless ghost

From holes in my gut
To love from miracles
Silver climbed the walls
Eyeless looking on
It’s looking still
Drawn by a mortal thread
To an ever shifting weave
Known better by my bones
Than my eyes can see
Shrine to a silent call
Beckoning my restless ghost

Leaving
Nothing left behind
Breathing
Through my dark inside
The raw within
Ayni
Sent reverence
For what has been given
In this shared life
The raw within
