Having only recently discovering high on fire i feel a bit late to a party which has been going on for what seems a hell of a long while. Purchasing the whole discography, i deem this record to be the best of the bunch. Like a lot of stoner/doom bands of modern days the songs throughout this album take on a surreal narrative.
The songs and musicianship on this album shine, the combination of the low, fast, crunching guitars and the almost of harsh sounding lyrics amalgamate to create a genre defining masterpiece. Tracks like: "Wastes of Tiamat", "Turk" and "Death is this communion" stand out and take the listener in. Though the best track on this album is "Fury Whip", after listening to this you will not able to stop humming the riff, for months to come, I haven't!
