In advance of the release of their Prosthetic debut Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die, Boston thrashers RAMMING SPEED teamed up with Terrorizer Magazine to stream the new album in its entirety! You can listen to it right here. Labeled “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal” (Noisecreep), RAMMING SPEED are currently out on the road with Valient Thorr and Gypsyhawk and previously toured alongside acts such as 3 Inches of Blood, Goatwhore, Trap Them, Holy Grail, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, Torche, Phobia, Black Tusk and Saviours.
Recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Black Breath, Kvelertak) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatwright (Tragedy, Sleep, High On Fire), Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die memorably combines the charging rhythms of d-beat punk and the aggression of thrash with NWOBHM-worthy guitar harmonies and grind’s blinding speed.

HIGH ON FIRE unleashed the first video for the track, Fertile Green from De Vermis Mysteriis. Directed, animated and edited by Phil Mucci (Passion Pit, Islands), the video is described as a “frantic psychedelic experience” that expands on De Vermis Mysteriis‘ deeply mystical undercurrent and story of the Christ Twin, combining scenes of the past and future with the story of Balteazeen’s sacrifice to the Oracle of Green. Watch the Fertile Green music video here.
About HIGH ON FIRE:
Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE creates modern heavy 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 drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz. Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone‘s “New Guitar Gods” and is one of rock’s most charismatic figures. HIGH ON FIRE‘s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.
