Ablaze 10:13
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

The Screen 09:49
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

In Reverie 09:43
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

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

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

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

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).
