The Lord’s Prayer is less than fifty words long, and six of those words
are devoted to asking God not to lead us into temptation. The one-sided contemplative
leaves undone many things that he ought to do; but to make up for it, he refrains
from doing a host of things he ought not to do. The sum of evil, Pascal remarked, would
be much diminished if men could only learn to sit quietly in their rooms.
The contemplative whose perception has been cleansed does not have to stay in his room.
– Huxley, The Doors Of Perception
West coast heavy weights High On Fire are one of the bands along with Neurosis, Mastodon, Baroness and Today Is The Day who are most responsible for shifting the trends in the underground from death or nu metal to the brainier psych and sludged infused styles that are arguably the most consistently awesome sounds in metal today. New song “The Sunless Years” from forthcoming banger Luminiferous is everything you’ve ever loved about High On Fire in one invincible wall of guitar fuckery, aimed right at your third eye and out through the back of your exploding skull.
