High On Fire

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, bass player George Rice, and drummer Des Kensel formed High on Fire in 1999, following the collapse of Pike's previous band, doom metal titans Sleep. But while Sleep had built their fame on impossibly slothful tunes and copious weed consumption, High on Fire's first release, The Art of Self Defense, displayed a far more aggressive though still fantasy-themed style of heavy metal. Released to mildly enthusiastic reviews, the album's prospects suffered from label Man's Ruin imminent bankruptcy, and it wasn't until High on Fire landed on grindcore powerhouse Relapse Records for their second album, 2002's devastating Surrounded by Thieves, that their abundant promise was rewarded. Extensive touring and an ever-increasing fan base followed, so that by the time they unleashed their third release, Blessed Black Wings, in early 2005 (introducing new bassist Joe Preston [ex-Thrones and Melvins]), High on Fire had earned their place as one of the most widely respected heavy metal outfits on the planet. Preston would be replaced by Jeff Matz, who would play on their 2007 release, Death Is This Communion. In 2010, High on Fire returned with their fifth studio album, Snakes for the Divine, released on Koch. De Vermis Mysteriis, which translates to "The Mysteries of the Worm," followed in 2012. The following year the stoner metal masters released a pair of live albums, Spitting Fire Live, Vol. 1 and Spitting Fire Live, Vol. 2, capturing two skull-crushing performances in New York City with a two-album set. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

I love High on Fire, though Sleep is too slow for me
I love High on Fire (and Sleep.) I have had the pleasure of seeing High on Fire with Kvelertack, got a pick from Matt Pike, and got to meet him. That man is a genius....I want to marry him one day.
Gets me ready for war
I saw them once with Goatwhore and they damn near blew the roof off the place.
It astounds me that that reviewer blew s**t on their first album - it's hands down their best release.
I'm 45 and I've been going to metal and rock shows since I was 13. I have NEVER seen anyone rock harder than Matt Pike.

This album f**king kicks a**!
phypolite7
Oh yeah - and Trouble too.

Just got my nose opened to H.O.F. Vocals sound a bit like Tommy Victor, riffs chug a bit like Crowbar yet overall sound is definitely unique. Yep, horns up!
arcthepirate
oh yeah and HEY GUYS the bass player from the melvins is in a s**tty sub-garageba n d e s c generic metal band .. wow blessed black wings is like the greatest collab in metal ... but you knew that i'm sure...
arcthepirate
lemme called ... he said Good Job.
You know what I've always wondered? How does one get high on fire? I don't think you could snort it, that'd be painful. I'm thinking you smoke it. Because smoking fire just sounds f**king metal.
H.O.F. is one of the baddest metal bands ever.
Thier blend of Doom, Thrash, Sludge....me l o d i c middle eastern...it s quite fuckingaweso m e .
They have true originality. . . . T R U E originality meaning you honestly cannot name ONE BAND that sounds like them....simi l a r i t i e s sure, but they are truly unique.

Hail, respect, bow down...... \m/
yeah heheh pike would probbly whoop his a**
J Harral isn't even a metal fan. His opinion means absolutely nothing. I would also venture to say that he wouldn't attempt to tell Matt Pike he thinks garage bands sound better than HOF.
visualphonet i c
Matt Pike is the man.
Yea, he sure does sound like him.
Lemme called. He want's his voice back.
Yeahhh. This is good. I want more
J.Harral - you must be a "screamo" fan right?
Most garage bands are better.
This band is the soundtrack to Robert E. Howards original vision of the mighty Cimmerians travels and triumphs in Hypboria.... .

p.s.- the new movie is going to f**king blow hard, then again hollywood generally f**ks anything up thats truly awesome from page to screen (except Peter Jackson)
