All Hail The Yeti – “All Hail The Yeti”

All Hail The Yeti – “All Hail The Yeti” (AFM Records)

In an almost impossible possibility, AHTY are a heavy stoner band hailing from LA – West Hollywood to be specific! Complete with lumberjack shirts, I guess what sets these hill billys apart is Canadian vocalist and tattoo artist Connor Garritty’s ugly aggro core ‘vocals’ and moreover, some serious melodies and hippy choruses amidst the sludge of ‘I Am Wendigod’, ‘Judas Cradle’ and ‘When The Sky Falls’. Additionally, the band don’t rely just on one tempo but in many cases, have an upbeat groove to their sound. So while being heavy, AHTY are very accessible to the masses – hence being a fave at the Whisky-A-Go-Go – unlike the dope hazed smog of EyeHateGod or Buzzoven, whose inspiration can be heard there throughout, albeit without the extreme, uncompromising and drug fueled nihilistic rage that spawned those bands.
