Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words,YOBhas achieved legendary status over the last two decades with their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. NowElaborations of Carbon, the debut full length that set the stage for the bands singular, organic universe of transcendent doom, is being presented for the first time on vinyl as well as being made widely available for the first time across streaming services.
The enormous volume and pensive, ethereal beauty thatYOBwould become synonymous with make themselves known across the 6 riveting tracks onElaborations of Carbon. The album's lineup featuresYOBfounder and heart Mike Scheidt (vocals and guitars), Lowell Iles (bass), and Gabe Morley (drums) and was recorded and mixed by Jeff Olsen (who would go on to become a long time collaborator ofYOB’s) at Dogwood Recordings in Elmira, OR.
After its initial release in May 2002 on 12th Records, the CD would see a small repress in 2013 and the album has been unavailable since. Billy Barnett was called upon to make the archival transfer for the 2023 reissue which was mastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis Music and features completely re-envisioned artwork by Orion Landau.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - VINYL ORDERS
Please note that we do our best to protect vinyl records ideally for shipping, using our custom made mailers and additional cardboard squares. However, we can not guarantee that no damage on the way occurs. Ordering is at one's own risk. Vinyl might be delivered unsealed as we have to open copies to check vinyl colours, if not sufficiently labeled by the distributor / label.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRE-ORDERS
Pre-order means that your item will not ship before it's release date and so will all other items on your order. We do not split up orders, everything will be shipped all at once together in one package.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRODUCT IMAGES
Please note that most of the images in our store are not actual photos but mock ups. These mock ups are digital representations of what we expect the final product to look like - however they do not represent the final product. Final vinyl pressings, prints, etc. may look slightly different.
