HIGH ON FIRE
DEATH IS THIS COMMUNION
Oakland's High on Fire return with DEATH IS THIS COMMUNION, a mighty 11-track warmongering affair that screams metal from every imaginable angle. Furious guitar riffs collide with thick rhythms while the raucous vocals summon demons to engage in vicious battle, pitting the tumultuous trio's dastardly din against the world of safe music once again. From the opening strains of the savage "Fury Whip" until the fadeout on the stoner rock sludgefest "Return to Nod", Matt Pike and company have raised the bar when it comes to presenting the very best of the hellacious rumblings and metallic gallops necessary to move the masses into utter hysteria. With a more apparent Middle Eastern flair strewn about the wreckage and a top-notch capturing of the band thanks to Jack Endino, this collection stands out as an essential record for all who worship destruction at its most bone-jarring finest.
