Southern-fried hardcore metal squad, All Hail The Yet are showcasing a new song, ‘Mr Murder’ from their upcoming second album, Screams From A Black Wilderness. The track features guest vocals from 36 Crazyfists’ frontman, Brock Lindow, a longtime friend of the band.

Vocalist Connor Garritty reveals that “Mr Murder” in particular steps outside the overall horror story theme of the album. It was originally written as a surprise tribute to Garritty’s best friend, penned before his untimely passing last year. The band decided to use the track on this record, immortalizing Connor’s friend in music. “‘Mr. Murder’ was written about my best friend Matt who passed away last year. He was one of the most influential people for me growing up and throughout my music career. The song was originally written in tribute to him and his unbelievable strength and passion for life. He left us unexpectedly before I could show him the song. It was supposed to be a surprise, almost a thank you to him for helping in more ways than he knew.”

Garritty adds that having Brock Lindow on the track was fitting, as he and Matt were also friends.”We knew early in the writing of the record that we wanted Brock Lindow on the album. Brock and Matt were friends as well, so it seemed fitting that this would be the song he sang on. It was special for me because he is one of my best friends as well and such an influence to me as a vocalist. ‘Mr. Murder’ has become an anthem to my best friend, immortalizing him forever. It’s very emotional for me when performing this. I go between sadness and great happiness by the end of the song.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
