Album review

We've all seen it happen time and time again, band leader goes into rehab and cleans up, albums suck from then on out. High On Fire continue to destroy this unfortunate trend with another unbelievably killer album. 'Luminiferious' is the work of old souls, a complete raging audio road rash of epic proportion. The melodies and vocals intertwine forming a pulsing mass of Pike's ongoing fury, desperate angst, and discontentment with the realties around him. Like a Viking call to arms, 'Luminiferious' pounds through your skull with signature HOF sliding riffage. Highlights: 'Carcosa', (you know the riff when you hear it...) 'The Falconist', 'The Cave'. Excellent.
