High On Fire – Fertile Green OFFICIAL VIDEO

HIGH ON FIRE just released the first official live recordings of its career with the two volume set Spitting Fire Live, which has been hailed as “high-volume intensity” by the Austin Chronicle, “hot as the infernos” by Pitchfork and a “documentation of the band’s undiminished ferocity onstage” by the SF Weekly.  Recorded over a two evening NYC headlining stint at both NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last winter, Spitting Fire Live showcases HIGH ON FIRE at its incendiary best, containing songs from each of the band’s critically acclaimed studio albums including last year’s celebrated De Vermis Mysteriis.

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 powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented 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.

HUNTRESS New Album Available Now

HUNTRESS generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill, Starbound Beast, is available now via Napalm Records. Purchase on iTunes and Amazon.

The band recently completed work on a video for their song Zenith.  Watch the video teaser HERE. The clip was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE’s Fertile Green was named best video of 2012 by Revolver.

In support of the release of Starbound Beast HUNTRESS are taking part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. In addition to performing everyday, vocalist Jill Janus is hosting the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition. Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom Jägermeister guitar from Schecter and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front). Artwork was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

 

HUNTRESS spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

New HIGH ON FIRE Album Streaming Online

 

 

California doom rock powerhouse HIGH ON FIRE will release not one, but two LIVE albums on June 18 via eOne Music. Titled Spitting Fire Live, the two volume set represents the first official live documents of the power trio’s storied career, perfectly capturing the sound and intensity of a band whose performances have been hailed as “rumbling and down-tuned and resonant” by the New York Times and who the Chicago Tribune called “one the best live bands you will ever see.” In advance of the two record set’s release, both live albums are now available for streaming via Pandora and Pitchfork, respectively.

* Stream HIGH ON FIRE’s Spitting Fire Live (vol. 1) via Pandora HERE.

* Stream HIGH ON FIRE’s Spitting Fire Live (vol. 2) via Pitchfork HERE.

Plus, request to hear High On Fire on The Welding Room.

Recorded over a two evening NYC headlining stint at both NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last winter, Spitting Fire Live showcases HIGH ON FIRE at its incendiary best. The live sets contain well known HIGH ON FIRE songs from each of the band’s critically acclaimed studio albums including last year’s celebrated De Vermis Mysteriis. Mixing of the performances was handled by Greg Wilkinson with additional engineering done by Converge’s Kurt Ballou. The albums are available for pre-order via iTunes HERE and HERE, while limited LP versions and special bundle packages can be pre-ordered HERE.

The release of Spitting Fire Live puts a triumphant cap on a multi-year run by the Oakland band that has been fraught with both celebration and frustration. The release of last year’s De Vermis Mysteriis followed more than a year and a half of world touring in support of 2010’s Snakes for the Divine which included multiple North American headlining jaunts, international festival appearances and tours alongside Metallica, Slayer, Mastodon and The Melvins, the latter of which saw the trio caught in BOTH the February 22, 2011 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand and the powerful earthquake and resulting tsunami in Tokyo, Japan on March 11, 2011. The group was unharmed, but shaken after surviving its second natural disaster in sixteen days and was able to return to its native Oakland a few days later.

Last summer, HIGH ON FIRE was forced to pull out of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival as front man and guitarist Matt Pike entered treatment for alcohol rehabilitation.  Pike would emerge from treatment “stronger than ever” and HIGH ON FIRE celebrated by releasing “the wildest video in heavy metal history” for De Vermis Mysteriis’ potent track Fertile Green and then immediately announcing a North American headlining tour which saw the band at its very best and would ultimately yield the recordings that would become Spitting Fire Live.

With a renewed energy, drive and passion for the unique music it creates, HIGH ON FIRE forges forth as focused and determined as ever before. Spitting Fire Live showcases the dedication, resolve and ultimate creativity of one of the very finest metal bands on the planet today.
