High on Fire


Metallica really do have good taste when it comes to metal, having invited Machine Head, Lamb of God, Mastodon and now High on Fire to tour with them. The dirty-metal power trio High on Fire have been hand-selected by, and will join, Metallica on the band's European trek this May. High on Fire will lay waste to Europe with the mighty M for two weeks.

"High on Fire is ecstatic to join Metallica on its upcoming tour," said the band in a statement. "We are honored to be chosen by James, Lars, Kirk and Robert and look forward to introducing their loyal crowds to our brand of heaviness." Hell yeah, we are stoked for Matt Pike and crew for this water buffalo-sized opportunity that they've been given. Hard work and hard rock certainly pays off in this case..

HOF are currently on a headline run supporting 'Snakes for the Divine,' their most recent masterwork. The album is so metallically manly, it'll put hair on your chest. Priestess, Black Cobra and Bison B.C. are the support acts.
