HIGH ON FIRE: 'Snakes For The Divine' Available For Streaming

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Thursday, February 18, 2010


"Snakes for the Divine", the new album from the Oakland, California-based power trio HIGH ON FIRE, is available for streaming in its entirety on the band's MySpace page.

"Snakes for the Divine" will be released in Europe on March 8 via Century Media Records (under exclusive license from E1 Music). The follow-up to 2007's "Death is this Communion", which will be made available in North America on February 23 via E1 Music, was recorded at The Pass Studios in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman and is described in a press release as "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 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."

01. Snakes for the Divine

03. Bastard Samurai
