Portland’s epic doom metal titans YOB return this year with new album Clearing the Path to Ascend. It’s out Sept. 2 via Neurot, and it’s a beast of a record. We’re talking four massive and crushing tracks, extending about an hour in total, and going for a sound that’s powerful and all-encompassing. It can swallow worlds. This thing, well, you just have to hear it. And lucky for you, you can! The entire album is streaming one week early, via Pitchfork Advance.
