Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Massive power trio High On Fire are a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume. In the summer of 2004, the band entered Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL with esteemed engineer Steve Albini (Neurosis, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Nirvana) to record their third full-length slab Blessed Black Wings. Equal parts molten metal and earthquake panic, the band's Motorhead-meets-Slayer roar is outrageously loud and absolutely punishing here. Matt Pike unleashes a devastating combination of bombastic guitar and howling vocals, weaving fantastical tales of supernatural beasts, forgotten battles and rivers of blood over an unstoppable bass and drum assault. Blessed Black Wings was named one of 2005's best releases by Kerrang!, Revolver, Pitchfork, Decibel and dozens of other publications around the world.
