    Between these two sets, fans get a chance to explore the many facets of High on Fire's sound, and no matter which side of the coin you might fall on, the Spitting Fire Live series has something for you.

    Spitting Fire surges, grunts. sweats, spills your beer and pukes--an exact replica of being in a High On Fire crowd. [6 Jul 2013, p.54]

    Spitting Fire does an admirable job capturing some of the sodden, smoky tones and wild, wretched energy the band wield in a live setting.

    Despite set list quibbles (no "Blessed Black Wings"?), the performances atomize neurons with brutal consistency and high-volume intensity.

    As a double-disc, Spitting Fire falls into the “recommended for fans” category.

    Concert albums never sound like the concerts they're supposed to capture, and with a band whose presence can stifle trite conversation like High on Fire's, it's a disservice.
