No. 24: High on Fire, ‘Hung, Drawn, and Quartered’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs
Fronted by legendary Sleep guitarist Matt Pike, High on Fire became a creation that covered the 2000s in a thick layer of sludge. High on Fire have released six albums in the 21st Century, with perhaps their defining moment being the groove-tastic track ‘Hung, Drawn, and Quartered.’
From the band’s second album, ‘Surrounded by Thieves,’ ‘Hung, Drawn, and Quartered’ displays High on Fire’s dont-give-a-*bleep* attitude as the muddy and heavily instrumental track takes its time in delivering the meat to the listeners. Combined with the Lemmy-like voice of Pike, High on Fire are one of the key metal acts of the 2000s.
