YOB have issued yet another awesome slab of doom, possibly their best yet. "The Unreal Never Lived" is packed with slow, evil goodness, and riffs that stay groovy in milk. There aren't as many high-end vocals on this one, more growls and croaking, which just adds to the crushing heaviness of the music. Of the 4 tracks on here, I'd have to say the last one is the favorite. "The Mental Tyrant" clocks in at over 21 minutes long, it's a perfect example of why YOB can play slower that old people fuck, and still crush you like an ant.
