Who can say someone listens to abit too much Sleep and Isis. YOB is amazing as they take stoner rock and mix it with some trippy assed bluesy leads that make up one of the most orginal sounding records. But see YOB goes away from the pack (you taking notes there kiddies) and actually has some real vocals now these might not be the best vocals in the world but they try their best attempt at Geddy Lee as they can do. I mean this shit is amazing, there are only 3 tracks but you get almost 50 mins of music. The first track (AEONS) was enough to make me wanna sit thru the rest of every second of the other tracks. The third track (Catharsis) is 23:38 seconds and is something Sleep should have put out, but were too busy forming High on Fire and the Sabians. This track is so groove orientated and bluesy it makes you wanna light up. The vocals just fit the music so well it's eerie how they do it. One of the best records I've heard in a while.
