High On Fire have completed work on its long-awaited, fifth studio album and follow-up to 2007's Death is This Communion. Titled Snakes for the Divine, the record will drop on February 23, 2010 via E1 Music.

Recorded at The Pass Studios in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, Snakes for the Divine is High On Fire's magnum opus, capturing every nuance of the legendary band's ongoing musical progression and evolution into one of heavy music's all time greats. Sharper, faster and darker than anything the group has ever recorded, Snakes for the Divine is an unrelenting tour de force, showcasing cult guitar hero Matt Pike's utterly unique and inventive musicianship and the band's epic, thundering sound.

Premium production by Fidelman - the man who produced Slayer's World Painted Blood and is mixing the upcoming Metallica live album - boosts High On Fire's strength and power while blackened lyrical tales of ancient wars, frozen planets and doomed societies emerge from Pike's bellowing barks and throaty war cries. From the moment the leviathan-like title track explodes to kick off the album, it is immediately evident that High On Fire is determined to push modern heavy metal into new and uncharted realms. Snakes for the Divine's album artwork will be brought to life by longtime High On Fire cover artist Arik Moonhawk Roper.

01. Snakes For The Divine
02. Frost Hammer
03. Bastard Samurai
04. Ghost Neck
05. Fire, Flood & Plague

I'm so fucking excited, though I have to admit "sharp" isn't something I like to hear described in HoF's music, it should be blunt, heavy and sludgy...I hope they're just using promo jargon when they use the word "sharp".

Though I like the idea of fast & dark.

I also cannot wait and welcome our new High On Fire overlords.

Can't wait... im a bit nervous, however... i think it might be a departure from HoF's traditional sound and more towards mainstream metal
