See Mike Scheidt Trace Roots of YOB's Unique Doom Sound in "Hometown" Doc Part 2
YOB's Mike Scheidt has lived his whole life in Oregon, and nearly lost it there, too. From growing up as a bullied outsider to finding his place as a respected doom-metal innovator — as heard on the band's epic new album Our Raw Heart — the experiences have shaped him into the man he is today: a rebel with open arms. We joined him at home and at the McKenzie River Music store where he used to work to get a lesson in his creative evolution, particularly how country swing plays into his style. Watch episode two of our three-part documentary above.
