Yeth Hound

Rated 3.38/5 (67.5%) (8 Votes)

Tyfon's Doom is a Finnish one-man project that plays 80s-inspired Metal on the debut EP Yeth Hound. Musically we're talking a mix of proto-Thrash riffs and Maiden/Priest solos with vocals that could have been lifted from early Venom. Yeth Hound has a real NWOBHM feel and even the sound, pretty rough by today's standards, is evocative of those early Neat Records releases. We hated them when they were originally released but they have a special, nostalgic place in our hearts today, so I consider this a good thing. The songwriting is where main man Tommi Varsala has to make some progress. There's no song on Yeth Hound that stands out from the rest and it is even hard to tell when the transition from the songs written for the EP to the bonus tracks taken from the band's 2015 demo happens, so there hasn't been much progression.

I still recommend Yeth Hound to 80s fans who, like me, enjoy the early sounds of Heavy Metal where styles were still evolving and young bands like Tokyo Blade, Sweet Savage and Venom were starting to muscle in on the territory then held exclusively by Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
