Sludge metal merchants High on Fire have just unleashed 'Fertile Green' as the first single from their upcoming album 'De Vermis Mysteriis' -- and holy hell have they outdone themselves with this one. 'Fertile Green' is a progressively captivating trudge through a trench, with all of the band's strengths accented through masterful songwriting and flawless production.
High on Fire
High on Fire have traipsed over to GodCity Studios in Salem, Mass., to begin tracking their as-yet untitled sixth studio album. The band, known for their punishing, dirt-caked, bottom-heavy blend of metal, are working with producer Kurt Ballou, whose name should be familiar to discerning headbangers, as he also plays guitar in Converge. The new High on Fire disc will follow 2010's 'Snakes for the Divine,' which was the band's debut on eOne Records.
