Veteran Doom Metalers return with their most sonic, diverse album to date!
I am always excited for a new Yob album because they are one of the most consistent doom metal bands in existence. However, I wasn't quite ready for 'Our Raw Heart' because it completely blew me away. Usually, their heavier tracks grab my attention, but this time around, their more melancholic songs are the ones that stand out. Album opener, "Ablaze" is 10 minutes of bliss and the 17 minute long "Beauty In Falling Leaves", is worth the price of the album all on its on. This is now my favorite Yob track. Overall, 'Our Raw Heart' is an excellent album and provides diverse sounding tracks to connect to all of your senses. AOTY candidate for me.
