HIGH ON FIRE – Recording New Album





Oakland, California metal veterans HIGH ON FIRE have entered the studio to begin work on their next record and follow-up to 2015’s Luminiferous. The band is currently ensconced at GodCity studio in Salem, Massachusetts with producer and engineer Kurt Ballou (Code Orange, Nails), who also worked on High On Fire’s last two albums.

High on Fire was formed by guitarist Matt Pike in late summer 1998, six months after the breakup of Sleep.

It was the late, great novelist and caffeine enthusiast Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850) who said, “Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.” And yet High On Fire have managed to do all three. Since the Oakland power trio’s inception in 1998 they’ve released six earth-splitting albums, each seemingly more unstoppable than the last. Forever haunting the halls of the Iommic Temple—the band’s own philosophical monument to Black Sabbath riff master Tony Iommi—High On Fire have become legends in their own time. As bong-huffing genre music rises and falls around them like so much windborne detritus, guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz comprise the all-seeing eye of a perpetual riff-storm, always looking toward a future in which The End is always near.

After unleashing one of the most momentous debuts in the history of heavy music with 2000’s The Art Of Self-Defense, High On Fire doubled down in 2002 with the absolutely punishing Surrounded By Thieves, an album that even notoriously finicky music website Pitchfork rated an 8.8 out of 10.
