  |  @   |  

Oakland power trio High On Fire is the heir apparent to Motorhead. Matt Pike’s massive riffs are pummeling and often played at a breakneck speed (much in contrast to the axeman’s other band, the sludgy stoner doom kings Sleep).

Pike recently completed rehab and has emerged sober, focused and hell-bent on creating the most massive riffs that metal has ever known. High On Fire’s seventh studio album, Luminiferous, is out now and I highly recommend that you run out and grab a copy (or, you know, stay in and download it… legally, of course).
