High On Fire Spitting Fire Live Vol. 1 on Limited Edition LP
The Band's First Ever Live Recordings Released in Two Volumes on the Same Day!
With a heavy-handed approach and a sound that crashes like thunder, High On Fire has put the power back in ‘power-trio’. Less a band than a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume and sheer heaviness, High On Fire has burned the metal rulebook and forged a new archetype.
The band now brings the masses what they all been craving, their first ever live recordings, Spitting Fire Live Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. which were captured at two iconic New York venues, The Bowery Ballroom on November 30, 2012 and Music Hall Of Williamsburg on December 1, 2012. The material was later mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, CA with additional engineering by Kurt Ballou. Vol. 1 features 7-tracks and clocks in at 40:15.
Since the Oakland power trio’s inception in 1998 they’ve released six earth-splitting albums, each seemingly more unstoppable than the last. Forever haunting the halls of the Iommic Temple - the band’s own philosophical monument to Black Sabbath riff master Tony Iommi - High On Fire have become legends in their own time. As bong-huffing genre music rises and falls around them like so much windborne detritus, guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz comprise the all-seeing eye of a perpetual riff-storm, always looking toward a future in which the end is always near.
