Yob - Elaborations of Carbon (2002)

The debut album from this US band.

The band was a trio on this album with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars and vocals.

I got a handful of their albums and will review them this fall and winter. 

... Starting with this one.

We are back in the post-punk era. An era we still in the middle off.

The music is a mix of stoner and space rock here. More space rock, in my opinion.

The music is dirty but has some good vocals. There are also some death metal vocals here and a piece of music that takes us into death doom metal. 

The sound is dirty and underdeveloped. In this case, that is not a positive thing. 

This album is really long, seventy minutes long and I suspect there is some demo stuff thrown into this album. The sound levels are a bit uneven.

The music is decent enough. But it is still not that good and I hope the band will improve on the coming albums. Just to make my deep dive into the discography a lot more enjoyable, that is.
