5.0 out of 5 stars Rock-crushing power and Might, 1 Aug. 2006
This review is from: BLESSED BLACK WINGS (Audio CD)
This is an unbelievable album. If you like heavy, aggressive, raw-sounding brutality that makes you want to start smashing things up then buy this. It is very energising music. I'd describe this as unapologetically 'dinosaur metal' in its lyrical obsessions - refreshingly unhindered by the irony and smirkiness of lots of modern music. I guess it's just reflective of a wider movement that is going on in music right now: people are fed up with standing on the sidelines and looking on, detached and superior. People want to enjoy themselves again and FEEL RAW POWER. High on Fire deliver thunderclouds of power and doom. I listened to this on a mate's amazing new stereo recently and it almost killed me it was so goddamn raw. Steve Albini has done a great job of the production -everything is in the right place and it's all heavier than Hell. Unbelievable. I bought this after I saw these guys touring with Mastodon last year in London - they play something I love: heavy, simple (ie not overcomplicated), powerful music. YEAH!
