ALL HAIL THE YETI – S/T

Released 17 August 2012 on AFM Records

All Hail The Yeti are based in Los Angeles, but you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re a Louisiana or Texas band. Pantera were obviously a big influence on these guys, except for the distinct lack of lead guitars… Sludgy, groovy riffs coupled to angry vocals, yet with enough melody to sweeten the deal. The band takes some hints from the current wave of American metal bands like Lamb Of God as well. There’s even some MOD in there.

Solidly executed but not always as inspired as you’d hope. There’s the obligatory film samples to help create the mood in a couple of places. And what’s with the 15 minutes of swamp sounds closing the album??

One word review : mediocre.
