All Hail The Yeti Screams From A Black Wilderness on Limited Edition LP
Recently, All Hail The Yeti released the re-issue of their 2012 breakout self-titled album via Minus Head Records, reintroducing listeners to their potent blend of groove, stoner and hardcore metal. At the time of its original release, AHTY fans were promised that a track on the record would conceptually tie into the band's next album, teased for release this year.
Four years of brainstorming, several important line-up changes and hundreds of shows performed later, the wait is over. All Hail The Yeti will release their follow-up full-length concept album, entitled Screams From A Black Wilderness, in April 2016. The concept, based on classic campfire-circle horror stories, presents a different story with each track. Screams From A Black Wilderness was produced by Matt Hyde, known for his prior work with renowned groups such as Deftones, Slayer, and Soulfly, and features a guest vocal appearance from Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists.
Vocalist Connor Garrity clarifies that the Screams From A Black Wilderness writing process, both sonically and conceptually, came easily once the new line-up for the band had been solidified. "When our guitarist Alan Stokes joined the band, the writing process finally felt natural. While we knew we wanted to connect it to the self-titled album, Screams From A Black Wilderness was truly conceptualized as it came together in the studio. We knew we wanted to do something different while still keeping our integral sound – this album, to us, is a more developed version of the style you hear on the self-titled release. Working with Matt Hyde was instrumental; he understood what we were doing musically and used that to pull the best out of us."
Screams From A Black Wilderness will feature a heavier, grimier and considerably more advanced version of the All Hail The Yeti fans have come to know since their inception.
