About HIGH ON FIRE
Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE creates dynamic metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness. Described as "a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume," HIGH ON FIRE has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique. The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike -- also a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP -- along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz. HIGH ON FIRE's most recent studio album, Luminiferous, was released on June 16, 2015.
"Veteran Oakland metal band High on Fire have been cranking out thick slabs of fuzzy riffage since their 2000 debut The Art of Self Defense, and the rest of the world is finally catching up to their brand of high-volume badassery. Their 2012 release De Vermis Mysteriis was one of the best metal records to come out that year, and their latest collection, Luminiferous, is another instant classic, full of hesher fever dreams and devil horn-worthy anthems...big and loud and awe-inspiring." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
