Massive Metal Monday: High On Fire “Snakes For The Divine”
  |  @   |  

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).

The turmoil lead the band to split, with guitarist Matt Pike forming and fronting the ultra heavy High On Fire, while vocalist/bassist Al Cisneros and drummer Chris Hakius became the experimental rock band Om.
