Already boasting a stellar lineup, the 2013 Metal Alliance Tour has just gotten crunchier. Off the heels of releasing their latest full-length masterpiece, 'De Vermis Mysteriis,' Californian sludge masters High on Fire have hopped on board the third installment of the trek.

High on Fire's summer plans will not include touring as the band have dropped off the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival as a sign of support for frontman Matt Pike. The musician has decided to enter treatment for alcohol rehabilitation.
High on Fire's latest 'De Vermis Mysteriis' is deafening slab of muscular metal, but it's also incredibly brainy and thought provoking, from a lyrical standpoint. Frontman/guitarist Matt Pike constructed a full-on
High on Fire's 'De Vermis Mysteriis' is a brilliant work both musically and conceptually. The album tells the story of Liao, the twin of Jesus Christ, who died so his brother could live. Liao immediately becomes a posthumous time travell
