Throw up ye horns and cut off those sleeves for a night of rock that will without a doubt leave you with a raging bangover tomorrow. Founded by Matt Pike of Sleep in 1998, High On Fire are one of the heaviest bands in metal today, a perfect middle ground between the unrelenting drive of Motorhead and the stoney doom of Black Sabbath. Their sixth studio album, 2012’s De Vermis Mysteriis, finds the band with no apparent intentions of turning it down or slowing up.
