    HEAVY as HEAVY gets. These are METAL JUGGERNAUTS. Once again, Matt Pike et al. prove that they are the real deal. A warning should be slapped on the album cover that reads: Keep small children and old folks out of the room/car when playing. Side effects will include uncontrollable desire to slay and destroy everything within reach. Not for fans of main steam garbage.

    The metal thunderstorm known as High on Fire have yet again delivered the pain, ladies and gentlemen. I didn't think they'd be able to top Death is this Communion. I will never doubt them again.

    Final Relapse anvil Death Is This Communion (2007) might never be breached, but lacking such compositional invincibility, Fire's fifth LP still incinerates a galaxy of Euro metal.
  2. Snakes for the Divine is another physically punishing tour de force from a band whose fans will settle for nothing less, and have rarely been let down--certainly not this time around.
  3. With his lyrics, his robust riffs, and flamboyant solos, Pike and High on Fire embody everything that is fun about heavy metal, and no matter how unpredictable they can be as far as production goes, we'll always know that there's no such thing as a bad High on Fire album, and Snakes For the Divine is no exception.
