Connor Garritty of sludge metallers ALL HAIL THE YETI recently spoke to Pete Bailey about their new album ‘Within The Hollow Earth’, touring the US with Jinjer & Suicide Silence and how they managed to get through the tour with Covid still be an ongoing issue for bands worldwide.
A supernatural stew of superstition and sludge, ALL HAIL THE YETI’s catalogue 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 ’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.
All Hail the Yeti (2012), Screams from a Black Wilderness (2016), Highway Crosses (2018), and the Within the Hollow Earth EP (2021) stitch together an evolving anthology of horror-infused parables. 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. 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. 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 THE YETI.
