Ah yes, stoner/doom metal. Heavy and crushing, filthy and provocative. Not my favorite brand of vodka but when I want to lather my musical palate with some that's artistically and professionally done, I look no further than Eugene, Oregon's Yob.

Darkside Momo

12.10.2014 Four songs, one hour of pure heavy and pounding doomy stuff. Dynamic, entrancing, atmospheric, all at the same time.

Beware, this beast is HUGE!

  Maybe I should give it another listen but it seemed devoid of much variation to the point of boredom for me. I think 10 minutes of the same melody is way too much and seems to be a common theme on this album. Now granted, when the variation hits it's usually memorable, but not so much that I want to slog through 14 minutes of drudgery to get there.

I won't rate the album through MS, as I'm sure this style appeals to a certain fanbase that I'm clearly not a part of, but I would just give it an average 6/10.
