High on Fire - Death is this Communion


Out of some strange occurance, great interest has risen around band in CP, and a few people have been lurking around our blog trying to d/l everything and anything we have to offer by the band...which would just, at this moment, be an EP and Blessed Black Wings. So I thought I'll upload my favorite (and their newest) record:

High on Fire - Death is this Communion

If you like High on Fire--check out Sleep, Asbestosdeath, Orange Goblin, Black Skies, EYEHATEGOD, and NOOTHGRUSH

Of great relevance is the reformation...or rather, the extremely temporary reuniting of stoner gods 'Sleep' for a couple gigs out in Europe midway through next year:

Sleep will reunite for two performances as part of the All Tomorrows Parties UK Weekend 1: The Fans Strike Back festival May 8th through the 10th. The band will perform their album Holy Mountain in its entirety as well as tracks from Dopesmoker.

Remember when Carcass announced a couple reunion gigs in the UK for a couple of festivals--then months later announced their schedule for a handful of shows in the US--which eventually ballooned into over a dozen performances? We can only hope we get the same random luck with Sleep.

Also--Hasan from Death By Hanger brought this interview with "Today Is The Day"'s guitarist to my attention earlier today...he goes a great deal into Relapse Records' "business practices"...it's a good read.

Haha, he may not be the most eloquent man but Steve Austin is definitely a down-to-earth, cool guy. He also makes great music, can't wait 'till Deathfest.
