Atma is YOB’s sixth full-length. Since the release in 2002 of their debut Elaborations of Carbon, the band’s been pretty regular if you except the Middian incident. They’ve built their very own sound which is very much personal and that very few bands have taken on successfully (Talbot from Estonia would be a good example). A solid record just like any other album YOB have released so far but it wasn’t as thrilling as Catharsis, among others.
Recorded and mixed at Dogwood Recording in May 2011.
I know this album has been getting plenty of positive press attention since its release, so I must be in a slightly confused minority in this case. I just don't understand what all the fuss is about.

YOB, it seems, is no different: "The Great Cessation", the title track of the trio's previous album, was a colossal 21-minute closer that took its time snaking through several obsessions, from the twinkling introduction and a throbbing mid-tempo midsection to a monolithic coda that felt like a great, malevolent sigh. In several Eastern religions, atma means a more complete aware version of the self. Scheidt uses that word during the refrain (or mantra, maybe?) of "Dreamed", singing "Self reaching outward/ Toward within" at the apogee of the riff’s power.
Before We Dreamed Of Two. Upon The Sight Of The Other Shore. No one has said anything yet.
