Yob, Kiss it Goodbye, Eight Bells 

When: Sat., June 9, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-15
Eugene, Oregon's YOB achieve the difficult feat of making doom metal that balances heaviness with airiness. They can write a 23-minute track called "Catharsis" that doesn't really deliver what the title promises, but it's cool: YOB's early Earth meets Monster Magnet guitar tones and Mike Scheidt's oddly effeminate-witchy vocals strike just an off enough chord to make them stand out from the hirsute masses of similar artists. YOB's ability to avoid the stodgy, monolithic dynamics common to doom metal also elevates them into a rarefied realm where rangy heavies like Black Sabbath and Kyuss dwell. DAVE SEGAL
