"Veteran doom-metal act YOB visited Chicago just last July, but any chance to experience the band's body-enveloping sonic wave is reason to thrill. YOB's stunning sixth album, Atma (Profound Lore), was a usual suspect on Best of 2011 lists — even gracing a couple of high-profile, all-encompassing, non-metal-specific wrap-ups, The New York Times and SPIN. But as with all who specialize in lunging-riff monoliths, you really need a PA, not your laptop soundcard. Equally drool-inducing: YOB vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt opens, also, performing — according to press materials — "dramatically different" solo material (expect acoustic, we think). Locals Anatomy of Habit round out the bill with their crushing epics of debasement and transgression — which'll fit about right."
