As said a few times before: these are busy times at the Burning World Records offices. The White Hills albums have all been sent out, the Conan – Monnos orders and pre-orders are coming in and are being shipped and this Tuesday we will be at the Graveyard / Horizont show at Doornroosje in Nijmegen with our mailorder. And we have something new again this Monday. The Yob Live at Roadburn double vinyl has been sent our to the plant and will be ready to ship out in a few weeks. We are giving you – our blog readers – the heads up on the pre-sale on this massive beast of an album. Included with the gold vinyl version (limited to 100) is a T-shirts based on the cover art (by Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues!). But of course we also have the black vinyl version. Order in our online store.
Read below what friendly words our friends at aQuarius Records had to say about Yob – Live At Roadburn:
“Attention all fans of spaceward soaring sludge!!! In 2010, blackened doom-mongers yet all-around nice guys Yob left their Pacific Northwest environs to travel to Europe, appearing at the Roadburn Festival in Holland, which we know from experience to be just about the best fest that any metal/psych fan could ever hope to attend. Yob now join the elite ranks of such bands as Wolves In The Throne Room, Earthless, Bong, Church Of Misery, and most recently White Hills, in having their Roadburn performance released on disc!
If you’re a fan, pretty much all you need to know about something like is is, is the audio quality any good? And was their performance killer? The answer to all those questions is, yes… Yob slay live, and this release will prove it to anyone who hasn’t yet seen ’em. In the hour allotted, they do four sprawling songs, “Ball Of Molten Lead”, “Burning The Altar”, “Kosmos”, and “The Great Cessation”; that’s 2 from their most-recent-at-the-time The Great Cessation album, and 2 from their previous slab to that, The Unreal Never Lived.
Epic and intense as you might expect. The set is structured nicely, crushing with riffy heaviness almost from the grinding get-go, but then “letting up” to space out psychedelically towards the end… ”
