As the moniker cryptically suggests, the music of ALL HAIL THE YETI evokes a hair-raising mixture of superstitious ritual and trippy backwoods folklore.
It’s all drenched in the countercultural, mind-smashing, gut-punching bile of likeminded spiritual shamans like Acid Bath and Eyehategod, with the down-tuned sludge of stoner rock, and an electric injection from four-on-the-floor classic rock pioneers. It’s a style of music and approach to songwriting and performance that has made ALL HAIL THE YETI equally at home in front of diverse crowds, sharing touring bills in the United States and Europe with bands like In This Moment, Motionless In White, Max & Iggor Cavalera, Hollywood Undead, 36 Crazy Fists, and Life Of Agony. Heavy music adherents weaned on anything from Metallica and Pantera to metalcore, Southern groove, black metal, or stoner grind will find a home among the All Hail The Yeti faithful, as evidenced by stellar slabs Highway Crosses (2018), Screams from a Black Wilderness (2016), and their self-titled debut. 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 rock is a big beach bonfire, ALL HAIL THE YETI are the creeps huddled in the backwoods.
