All Hail the Yeti, ‘Screams From a Black Wilderness’ – Exclusive Album Stream
After releasing an EP followed by their self-titled debut full-length album in 2012, All Hail the Yeti are set to unleash a new album and they're ready to share it with you exclusively here at Loudwire. The group's Screams From a Black Wilderness disc arrives tomorrow (April 8) via Minus Head Records, but you can hear it in full in the player below.
All Hail the Yeti have gone conceptual with their latest disc, basing their music upon the classic campfire circle horror stories, with each track centering on a different story. So far, fans have been able to embrace the song "Before The Flames," the first part of their conceptual video series. That's paired with "After the Great Fire," the second part, even though the song comes from their 2012 self-titled album. Director Brian Cox of Flarelight Films directed both clips.
Other standout cuts on the album include dark yet high energy rocker "Plague Dance," "Mr. Murder" (featuring a guest appearance by 36 Crazyfists' Brock Lindow), the chant-along track "Witch Is Dead," the groove-driven "Sun Will Never Set," "Daughter of the Morning Star" and more.
Singer Connor Garrity says of the recording process for the disc, “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.”
If you like what you hear, Screams From a Black Wilderness is currently available via Bandcamp, Amazon and iTunes. "Before the Flames" and "Daughter of the Morning Star" are instant grat tracks if you pre-order through iTunes. You can also look for the disc in brick and mortar stores on Friday. And keep an eye out for All Hail the Yeti on tour at these stops.
