Yob The Great Cassation

 

This definitive edition has been completely remastered by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive) and includes new artwork plus two bonus tracks (previously only available on vinyl).

 

Vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt reminisced on the original release of ‘The Great Cessation’:

 

“With ‘The Great Cessation’, we were revitalized from our break. We just had Aaron [Rieseberg – bass] join the ranks with the single best new potential member audition (since Travis) and the album basically wrote itself. When we broke up, we played generally to very small crowds in a very small scene. When we came back, our return was met with a scene that has caught up to what the genre's best had to offer, and we all of a sudden had opportunities we'd never had before. Hell, we did shows with Electric Wizard, Orange Goblin, High On Fire, that were attended by 50-ish people in the early 2000s.”

 

Physical and digital versions are of ‘The Great Cessation’ available for pre-order HERE.
