High on Fire, 'Death Is This Communion' (Relapse)

6
Death Is This Communion
Critical Mass
Label: Relapse

by Aaron Burgess

High on Fire's early albums were bowel-loosening slabs of post–Black Sabbath metal, but with 2005's Blessed Black Wings, the trio embraced their inner Motörhead, upping the velocity to match their volume. And here, the Bay Area band increase their stylistic range, with flashes of psychedelia ("Cyclopian Scape"), droning Eastern folk ("Khanrad's Wall"), and creatively druggy overtones to balance out the epic pummeling.
