YOB is a doom metal band from Eugene, Oregon composed of Aaron Reiseberg, Travis Foster, and Mike Scheidt.

YOB was founded by vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt in 1996. The original incarnation of YOB featured Scheidt alongside bassist Lowell Iles and drummer Greg Ocon. However, by the time of recording the 2001 album Elaborations of Carbon, YOB was composed of Scheidt, bassist Isamu Sato (previously with death metal act Thrombus) and ex-Lightweight drummer Gabe Morley. Sato also operates H.C. Minds whilst Morley plays with Fingertrap.

Scheidt announced in a press release on January 10, 2006 that YOB was disbanding after almost ten years. Travis Foster and Isamu Sato had left the band in July 2005, and after six months, Scheidt decided to call it off. At the same time, he also announced that he had been working on a new band called Middian.

In 2008, YOB reformed with the intention of performing a few shows live and releasing an album in 2009, which resulted in The Great Cessation on Profound Lore Records. The band also appeared in Europe for the first time at the 2010 Roadburn Festival in Holland.

YOB has toured the United States extensively, alongside bands including Graves at Sea, Lamont, Tummler, Dove, Orange Goblin, Origin, Exhumed, The Locust, The Accused, Botch, Isis, Soilent Green, Uphill Battle, Playing Enemy, Will Haven, Tool, and Ghostride.

In the winter of 2009, four musicians who had played in the same circles for many years decided to make a record. The combination of their eclectic influences, writing styles, and tastes, came together to produce a sound that moves and motivates them to explore new territory within their collected creative consciousness. The band works to create music that expresses the range of the human condition and experience by combining crushing, down-tuned riff assaults with intricate vocal and guitar melodies, and stunning leads. The music seems to play the band as they surrender to its will. Their sound spans many genres, while they intend to break themselves with their mix of progressive guitar work, doom, and all out metal energy.

Norska released their self-titled EP in the winter of 2011 to much acclaim. The band has been seen playing the stages of the Pacific Northwest, and has managed to reach out world-wide through word of mouth, the online community, and self-directed promotion.

The band's members have deep roots in many musical traditions. The Rieseberg brothers, Dustin (lead guitar) and Aaron (bass), have written and performed music together since they were able to pick up their instruments. Their collaboration and chemistry anchors the band. Jason Oswald (drums) is an accomplished life-long vocalist and guitarist (playing guitar for the band in an early line-up), who's decision to try his hand at the playing drums a few years ago has proved to be a driving force for the band. Jim Lowder (vocals, rhythm guitar) has grown to develop an up-front voice that laces the band's melodies and punch together, while maintaining that his vocals are simply the fifth instrument.
