High on Fire, the powerhouse heavy metal band hailing from Oakland, California, came together in the late summer of 1998. Founded by Sleep guitarist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel, and bassist George Rice, their music has continually evolved since their early EP recordings, showcasing a mix of powerful riffs and hypnotic melodies.
With a string of successful albums including “The Art of Self Defense”, “Blessed Black Wings”, and “Death Is This Communion”, the band’s sound has been further refined under the expert guidance of notable producers. Over the years, they have consistently pushed the boundaries of their genre, earning critical acclaim and even securing their first Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” in 2019 for their renowned track “Electric Messiah”. After a few lineup changes, the band continues to captivate audiences with their thunderous beats and electrifying performances.
