Yob - Atma (2011)

The sixth album from this US band.

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

Scott Kelly from Neurosis appeared on two tracks.

The band is back again with some distorted post-metal and post-punk.

The band is very much a sludge band and that is what we get here on this almost one hour long album. 

The album has a dirty sound, befitting the music on this album.

The music is also really primitive and slow. A wall of bass and guitars hits the listener from the first tone.

That actually makes this a pretty interesting album. It's primitive soundscape means the vocalist and guitarist has to work a bit harder. 

Not with great success, but they manages to make a pretty decent album. The guitar solos is a bit better this time around and that with help from this Neurosis contributor. 

The album is only a decent album as the sound levels are a bit up and down. There are a lot better Yob albums out there and I would recommend checking them out first.
