High On Fire Snakes For The Divine on Vinyl LP
Features Muscular Production from famed Producer Greg Friedman
"A cranium-crushing exercise in volume, speed, and aggression." --TONE Audio
High On Fire return with one of the most highly anticipated release of 2010. Called “one of 50 records you must hear in 2010” by Kerrang! Magazine, Snakes For Divine is High On Fire’s finest release to date and the one that will catapult them to the next level of their career.
Recorded at The Pass Studios in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, Snakes for the Divine is High on Fire's magnum opus, capturing every nuance of the legendary band’s ongoing musical progression and evolution into one of heavy music’s all time greats. Sharper, faster and darker than anything the group has ever recorded, Snakes for the Divine is an unrelenting tour de force, showcasing cult guitar hero Matt Pike’s utterly unique and inventive musicianship and the band’s epic, thundering sound.
Premium production by Fidelman – the man who produced Slayer’s World Painted Blood and is mixing the upcoming Metallica live album – boosts High on Fire’s strength and power while blackened lyrical tales of ancient wars, frozen planets, and doomed societies emerge from Pike’s bellowing barks and throaty war cries. From the moment the leviathan-like title track explodes to kick off the album, it is immediately evident that High on Fire is determined to push modern heavy metal into new and uncharted realms.
"...a cranium-crushing exercise in volume, speed, and aggression. While the record shows High on Fire hitting faster tempos than ever before, the core values remain the same. And for guitarist [Matt] Pike, it’s all about the mighty riff, and few axemen are more adept at creating and sustaining novel, swinging, bull-in-a-China-shop clusters than the former Sleep member." --Bob Gendron, TONE Audio, Issue 27
