All Hail the Yeti breathe a welcome waft of Southern/stoner swing into metalcore’s twitching corpse, producing an intriguing (last?) take on this endlessly sliced ’n’ diced subgenre. Teetering between being a compelling blend of influences — including nu-metal, thrash and ’80s metal — and a master-of-none mélange, what really elevates AHTY from the teeming trenches of angry underground metal is the L.A. quartet’s gift for insistent, almost poppy hooks, which, with more glossy production, wouldn’t have sounded out of place on heyday MTV. Certainly last year’s sophomore full-length, the semi-conceptual Screams From a Black Wilderness, is a vast, visceral leap forward from their eponymous 2012 debut, often hitting that bleak yet melodically memorable backwoods roar seldom heard since Corrosion of Conformity’s Deliverance nearly a quarter-century ago.
