The monstrous Maryland based power trio of Dana Helmuth on Vocals and Guitar, Maria Geisbert on Bass, and Sean Lafferty on Drums, were described by The Obelisk, following Yatra’s intense performance at Hostsabbat Festival in Oslo, Norway, with “they tap into a primal energy like they are excavating the very roots of sludge metal.....YATRA have the potential to lead a revival of nastier, more brutal sludge in the U.S.”
With Helmuth’s blackened, raw vocal stylings bringing in an original sound,
hailed as a “venomous execution” by Doomed and Stoned Magazine, mixed with his explosions into skillfully crafted guitar explorations, backed by a super heavy Lafferty, and Geisbert rhythm section, lead to the feeling that “there is something darkly spiritual at the heart of Yatra’s sound” as said by Indy Metal Vault Magazine. As Revolver Magazine proclaims , “Yatra holds up against the monoliths on which it was built,” and as Captured Howls Magazine writes, “their riffs feel like towering trees
crashing to the earth.”
Thriving strong from their intense live shows, following their 2019 debut album Death Ritual, which premiered in the top six on the Doom Charts for three consecutive months, YATRA completed four US tours in 2019 alone, including Monolith on the Mesa, Electric Funeral, SXSW, New England Doom Fest, Grim Reefer, and Descendants of Crom, as well as a three week european tour including performances for huge audiences at Desertfest Belgium, Hostsabbat, Into the Void, and Setalite amongst others. During their touring YATRA have performed with Sleep, EyeHateGod, Uada, Torche, Om, Conan, Big Business, and Nebula to name a few. YATRA have been focused on performing for and connecting with live crowds as much as possible, and have proved themselves on the road as Ghost Cult Magazine writes, “they are incredibly heavy, and pulverizing, “ and Riff Relevent Magazine states “they are rising from the sea coast like a gigantic kraken!” YATRA was voted by Revolver Magazine into their ‘top 6 things to listen to’ and described as “a stomach churning wall of fuzzed out doom!” Following the release of “Death Ritual,” YATRA was described by Heaviest of Arts Magazine as “the new guides into the fuzzed and stoned world.” YATRA have now completed their second album and signed to the revered STB Records, with the new album ‘Blood of the Night’ to be released in early 2020, to be followed by a relentless tour schedule to follow.
