On Clearing The Path To Ascend, YOB are as as formidable as they’ve ever been, demanding the tandem attention of mind, body and soul. Drummer Travis Foster wields his signature rhythmic furor here with bombastic precision while bassist Aaron Rieseberg coils around the sonic tide with an unforgiving churn – all the while in a deadly synchronicity with Mike Scheidt’s uncanny vocal range and its pendulous movement between the triumphant howls of a medieval madman and the earth splitting growls of a war-battered titan. Take this opportunity to revisit this remarkable album.

"The magic of Yob's set tonight lies in the centrepiece of their band's latest album…all four tracks are strong and stunning, in particular Marrow, which allows Mike Scheidt's voice to roll out across the venue in waves of perfect sadness, bringing to life and colour the slowly moving song…Mike's singular voice is ushered in via crunching guitars and the song shifts forward towards the inescapable, earth-shattering end." - 9/10 METAL HAMMER

"Sometimes, bands do the praise levelled at them justice but sometimes they outstrip them by leagues. Tonight was the latter, and then some." - ROCK A ROLLA

"There's loud, and there's transcendently loud, and this performance of 'The Great Cessation' is towering, the tone so thick it's tactile."

YOB is love.
