High On Fire
Pummeling doom metal powered by vicious thrash riffs. High On Fire are a heavy metal band from Oakland, California. Active since 1998, they were formed by Matt Pike and Des Kensel roughly six months after the dissolution of Sleep. Their music incorporates elements of Doom, Stoner and Thrash metal with lyrics based in mythology, spirituality and conspiracies. Through a career spanning over twenty years High on Fire have managed to release eight studio albums and tour all over the world. The band also notably won a Grammy for their 2018 song "Electric Messiah".
Raw and riveting, filled with emotion and the unique downcast triumphalism that has defined the band's storied career, Pallbearer, the Little Rock quartet comprised of Brett Campbell (vocals/guitars), Devin Holt (guitars), Joseph D. Rowland (bass/vocals), and Mark Lierly (drums) defy categorization while appealing to the tenets of doom; the very genre that now considers the group's oeuvre as crucial and influential.
