About High On Fire:

Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, High On Fire creates modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness.  Described as “a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume,” High On Fire has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique.  The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike — also a founding member of the famed underground band Sleep — along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz.  Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone‘s “New Guitar Gods” and is one of rock’s most charismatic figures.  High On Fire’s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.
