Southern metallers All Hail The Yeti have announced details of their new album ‘Screams From A Black Wilderness’. Released in the U.K. on 13th May via minusHEAD records, the album centres on a concept of 'round the campfire' horror stories, presenting a different tale with each track.
In the run up to the release, the fantastically named outfit have unveiled a taster, in the thrillingly dark video for 'Before The Flames'. The first part of a two-part story, the track acts as a prequel to ‘After The Fire’, a track from their self-titled debut. The new video can be viewed below.
Directed by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films, the videos tell the tale of an orphanage where the children are being abused by possessed caretaker nuns. 'Before The Flames' conceptualizes how the evil corruption came to be, before the tragic flames were started.
Explaining the concept, vocalist Connor Garritty says: “This portion of the story is told from one child's point of view - the little girl writing the letter to her parents begging them to come save her”.
He continues; “the idea for the story was something I came up with and immediately wanted convey visually as well as musically”.
“It's more of a 'suggested' horror, to think of what these nuns are doing to these little children.”, he adds.
Produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer, Soulfly) and featuring a guest vocal appearance from 36 Crazyfists' frontman, Brock Lindow, 'Screams From A Black Wilderness' is the follow-up the 2012’s self-titled release.
Available for pre-order here, via Amazon, and on itunes, those who pre-order from Itunes will have access to 'Before The Flames' right away.
