Metal, Rock

Few, if any, metal bands pull off long-to-looong songs with the mastery of YOB, who mix cosmic ambiance, loudness, quietness, riff repetition, and release. Formed in 1996, they leaped to major metal institution Relapse Records ahead of June’s seven-song, 73-minute Our Raw Heart. It’s a towering emergence to a bigger audience and, following frontman Mike Scheidt’s recovery from life-saving intestinal surgery in early 2017, a triumphant one. With Bell Witch and Former Worlds.
