YOB bio: Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words, YOB has achieved legendary status in recent years due to their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. Formed in 1996 in Eugene, Oregon under the leadership of doom metal mastermind Mike Scheidt on guitars and vocals, the group initially released a three song demo tape in 2000 that garnered them international attention. Drawing comparisons to groups like Neurosis, Sleep and Electric Wizard, YOB succeeded in developing modern sounding doom metal that hearkened back to the classics. In 2002, YOB released their debut album Elaborations of Carbon followed by Catharsis in 2003, a three song record that clocked in at a colossal 50 minutes. The buzz about YOB was beginning to grow and the trio began to tour more extensively. Remaining quite prolific during this period, YOB continued to release an album each year with The Illusion of Motion coming in 2004 followed by The Unreal Never Lived in 2005. Despite all the momentum, YOB … [Read more...] about YOB • Acid King • doom metal, stoner • Chrch • drone

Now that I am reconnected to my favorite newspapers and websites, I am forced to conclude: Doom is right around the corner.One of the first opinion pieces I noticed upon my return aired out the tired question: “Is the Broadway musical doomed?” Oddly, this article ran just before the successful Tony Awards broadcast that — Robert De Niro’s curious “Sweeney Todd” riff notwithstanding — looked like fun and garnered decent television ratings.Once you start looking, doom is everywhere. “Kim Jong Un Knows North Korea is DOOMED,” the defiantly un-authoritative Daily Express tabloid blared last week. Really? I wonder what Kim knows, because if North Korea was a stock, I would be buying some right now. Kim just completed a … [Read more...] about Are we doomed?

Even better was seeing Doom on the Patio, a great themed riff (see what I did there?) on Marshal Rones’ Best of Orlando award-winning Punk on the Patio live series featuring heavy, heavy grooves, man. click to enlarge Jen Cray Electric Dawn at the Patio POTP has always been flexible about its concept, seldom sticking to just punk.

UPDATED: Nothing will come from the league stemming from the Kesler and Parise majors at the buzzer. A couple young mistakes and a boatload of goals left on the ice doomed the Wild on Friday night in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. Eight periods, no goals against this season for the Wild until tonight’s third. Then the Wild, in pretty good control of the game early in the third with a 1-0 lead, made a critical mistake on a power play that turned the game around. Late in a power play, rookie Matt Dumba took Ryan Suter’s pass and tried to wiggle along the boards through traffic with no support. He lost the puck. Veteran Thomas Vanek covered for him at the point, but his attempt to get the puck deep was blocked. Andrew Cogliano popped out into the neutral zone, took a bank pass off the dasher and was off to the races for the tying goal 4:02 into the third. That snapped Darcy Kuemper’s franchise-record shutout streak at 163 minutes, 46 seconds to open the season. Later, … [Read more...] about Young mistakes, blown offensive chances doom Wild in Anaheim
