Yob - Cathasis (2003)

Perfect, god-level psychedelic doom. A massive, riff-powered trip through a black hole and into the great beyond. Catharsis was the first Yob album I ever heard, and, all these years later, it remains not just my favorite of theirs, but one of my absolutely favorite doom metal records, period. I'm aware that everyone already knows this band, so I will be using the fact that they're gearing up to release a new album as my excuse for talking about their (already well-covered) back catalogue.

Track listing:
1. Aeons
2. Ether
3. Catharsis

10 billion eyes
Yet only one sees
