High On Fire's new album, De Vermis Mysteriis, produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at God City Studios in Salem, MA, marks the next devastating chapter in High On Fire's gloriously unhinged metal saga.
'I think it's kind of a cross between the experimentation of Death Is This Communion and the driving darkness of Blessed Black Wings. There's plenty of thrashy stuff, but there's also a lot of Sabbathy doom-type stuff,' Matt Pike enthuses.
The album's title (translation: The Mysteries of the Worm), is a nod to a fictional grimoire conceived by the late, great Psycho author Robert Bloch in 1935 and later incorporated into horror master H.P. Lovecraft's renowned Cthulu Mythos.
