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. When re-entering the studio, the trio re-teamed with producer Kurt Ballou, who helmed De Vermis Mysteriis. High on Fire's seventh studio full-length, Luminiferous, was issued in 2015; it featured the band's sound at its most elemental and stripped down. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

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.

It astounds me that that reviewer blew s**t on their first album - it's hands down their best release.

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!
