Music Video: High On Fire – “Fertile Green”

Posted by SeanB on Monday, August 20, 2012 at 7:12 AM (PST)

So the one and only Matt Pike from stoner/doom metal band High On Fire is out of rehab for alcohol addiction and the band is back with a brand new video for the song “Fertile Green.”  It’s taken off their latest E1 Entertainment release De Vermis Mysterious and these guys sure as shit live up to the stoner metal branding that they receive.

You can click right here to see for yourself.

The story follows “Balteazeen, the Christ Twin, who sacrificed himself to give Jesus life. Forever hunted, he roams the slaughterhouse of Time, searching for answers to the riddle of his own existence…”  The video pretty much rules and it’s nice to know that Matt Pike back doing his thing.  Maybe this means they’ll actually be able to go on tour now.  Fingers crossed and we’ll keep you updated.

Album Review: High on Fire – “De Vermis Mysteriis”

Posted by JDKleinhans on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 12:05 AM (PST)

Doom metal. Stoner metal. Sludge metal. Define it with a label if you must  but in the end there are only a handful of bands do what High on Fire does, much less on a scale and level in which they do it. In 2003 I was introduced to a little album called Dopesmoker by a band known only as Sleep. Dopesmoker consists of a single track that clocks in at 63:31 and it completely blew my mind. Thus, was I introduced to High on Fire and my obsession with this crushing band began.

De Vermis Mysteriis is HoF’s sixth studio album and with its increased production reminds everyone how truly brutal and heavy HoF is and doom metal can be. Translated as “The Mysteries of the Worm”, De Vermis Mysteriis is a concept album that centers on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulu mythos and follows the life and times of the brother of Jesus as he travels forward and then backwards through time.

Concept albums can be a tricky thing. To find out how well HoF executes this latest addition to the world of concept albums, head on over here.

New Music: High On Fire – “Fertile Green”

Posted by SeanB on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 7:36 PM (PST)

The awesomely amazing California based doom metal band High On Fire are streaming the first single called “Fertile Green” from their upcoming album De Vermis Mysteriis. The album is due out April 3, 2012 via E1 and is named after a fictional book created by Robert Bloch and made famous by writer H.P. Lovecraft  and apparently is something like “a Jesus twin who can see the past through his ancestors’ eyes.”

Vocalist/guitarist Matt Pike has also stated:

“I got this idea about Jesus Christ and the Immaculate Conception: What if Jesus had a twin who died at birth to give Jesus his life? And then what if the twin became a time traveler right then?” If you pay attention, you’ll run into “an ancient Chinese alchemist who derived a serum out of the black lotus,”

Sounds amazing.  To hear “Fertile Green” click here.
