The Skinny: YOG’s new album is available through Division Records (Dirge, Kehlvin Unfold, Lost Sphere Project). Expect extreme virulence, sick blast beats, mentally ill math-grind from this band and album – YOG is for the Swiss scene what the Panzer was for battlefields; a pure war machine. After the release of their savage first album Years of Nowhere in 2007, YOG have destroyed countless stages across Europe supporting acts like: Today is the Day, Genghis Tron and Gojira.

So if you are looking for the hardcore punk/math-grindcore eradication of all living creatures before the end of this year, you have to grab Half the Sky. Keeping the will to dive beyond the fury and velocity limits, the band has given birth to a new monster, recorded by Jérôme Pellegrini at studio du Terrier and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side studio YOG’s new album is proudly going to make a lot of ears bleed to death.
