ALL HAIL THE YETI
"It's a long way from New Orleans to Hollywood. But distance be damned, ALL HAIL THE
YETI channel the swampy strangeness of the classic Southern sludge sound – think
Eyehategod, Down, Crowbar, and Pantera – beneath the bright lights of the City of Angels."
The beast, the monster, the folk story: welcome to a sonic campfire of urban legend.
ALL HAIL THE YETI makes music at the extradimensional crossroads, where demons and
myth dwell. The undying spirits of the New Jersey Devil, El Chupacabra, Sasquatch, and all
lurkers of lore, stalking the night, are conjured by the band's songs. ALL HAIL THE YETI is
a unique rock group with a strong identity and sense of purpose, clawing at the blackened
hearts of the strange.
A supernatural stew of superstition and sludge, ALL HAIL THE YETI's catalog brings
together postmodern heavy metal thunder with groove-soaked visions of riff-driven power.
Every song is drenched in mind-expanding, earthshaking authenticity. A smattering of
hardcore angst, the passion of '90s rock radio, and the classic majesty of '70s AOR. This is
music that aligns with the heavy hooks of Pantera, the steady pulse of early Crowbar, and
the stoner grind of Acid Bath.
Songs like "See You Never," "Slow Season," "Before the Flames," and "The Art of Mourning"
are anthems for train-hopping tramps, and the suffocated worker bees eager to break free,
alike. The music is immersive, vivid in imagination, providing escapism similar to the best of
A macabre Americana, celebrated by ghost hunters, witches, and vagabonds, permeates the
Hollywood, California group's sound, ever since they first began smashing songs together in
2006. All Hail the Yeti (2012), Screams from a Black Wilderness (2016), and Highway
Crosses (2018) stitch together an evolving anthology of horror-infused parables. UK
tastemaker Metal Hammer described them as "surprisingly upbeat, a heady combo of
metalcore and stoner riffs."
In This Moment, Hollywood Undead, In Flames, All That Remains, and Life Of Agony are a
few of the bands who've logged road miles with ALL HAIL THE YETI, demonstrative of the
broad and diverse appeal of the group's music. They turn heads at massive festivals, large
theaters, and in intimate clubs. Within the Hollow Earth, the band's near-album length EP set
for a 2021 release, is a meditative trip to the brain, every bit as much as the subterranean
saga evoked by its title.
“Headless Valley” is a vivid tale about the secrets of the Nahanni, the so-called “Valley of
Headless Men,” a remote place cloaked in legend and lore, in the Northwest Territories of
Canada. Musically, it recalls the threatening peril of first album YETI classics like “Suicide
Woods.” A haunting tale of loss, “Bury Your Memory” is in the vein of another fan-favorite,
“After the Great Fire,” with a yearning for redemption and strength. “Funeral Heart” will strike
a chord with anyone in the throes of a bad breakup, a mournful ode of broken bottles and
The guys tackled the Stone Temple Pilots landmark single “Sex Type Thing,” mining its
deeply subversive undertones, mindful of the way the lyrics knowingly turn misogyny on its
ALL HAIL THE YETI first discussed working with veteran hardcore-punk producer Steve
Evetts on their debut album, and finally made it happen with the new EP. Evetts is known for
the visceral and vibrant performances he wrenches out of heavy bands, as evidenced by the
killer records he’s made with Suicide Silence, DevilDriver, Incite, Every Time I Die, and The
Dillinger Escape Plan.
Folklore, UFOs, hauntings, poltergeists, and all things unkempt and grim are at the
blackened heart of the strange and surprising twists and turns taken by ALL HAIL THE
YETI. A primal bit of feeling and fear, hearkening back to man's emergence from primitive
hunter-gatherers to alleged "civilization," is strewn throughout the band's aesthetic. At times,
ALL HAIL THE YETI sound like an overwhelming tornado tearing through an Old West
ghost town, but they are never without their central core, anchored by an everyman charm,
soulful depth, and catchy as hell choruses.
Heavy music adherents weaned on anything from Metallica to Mastodon will feel at home
among the Southern groove, blackened sludge, and anthemic postmodern grunge of ALL
HAIL THE YETI. Whether kicking back at the Bucket of Blood Saloon in Nevada or reading
true crime books in Deadwood, ALL HAIL THE YETI is the perfect soundtrack for the
outsider. If the rock world is a big beach bonfire, ALL HAIL THE YETI are the creeps
huddled in the woods.
The musical mountain terrain of ALL HAIL THE YETI is littered with animalized urgency and
menacing ire. Dig deep Within the Hollow Earth. Summon the sacred spirits with ALL HAIL
