High On Fire recently released the first official live recordings of their career with the two volume set Spitting Fire Live, which has been hailed as "high-volume intensity" by the Austin Chronicle, "hot as the infernos" by Pitchfork and a "documentation of the band's undiminished ferocity onstage" by the SF Weekly. Recorded over a two evening NYC headlining stint at both NYC's Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg last winter, Spitting Fire Liveshowcases High On Fire at its incendiary best, containing songs from each of the band's critically acclaimed studio albums including last year's celebrated De Vermis Mysteriis.

About High On Fire: Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, High On Fire creates modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness. Described as "a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume,” High On Fire has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique. The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike -- also a founding member of the famed underground band Sleep -- along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz. Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone's "New Guitar Gods" and is one of rock's most charismatic figures. High On Fire’s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.
