High On Fire announce Australian Tour | July 2014 **Supports Announced**

High On Fire
Life is noise is pleased to announce the support acts for High On Fire’s upcoming Australian tour in July.

For the first Brisbane show on July 16 at Crowbar, prepare for the bluesy stoner jams of riff enthusiasts SHELLFIN who’ll be taking a break from the studio to once again provide support for High on Fire. Joining them will be the mighty SMOKE: part Sabbath, part Hendrix, all killer, all the time.

For the second Brisbane show on July 17 at Crowbar, support comes from the stoner rhythms of LIZZARD WIZZARD – the soundtrack to a nervous breakdown in slow motion. But first: dig on the apocalyptic fuzz of doom lords, ZODIAC.

HIGH ON FIRE with TRASH TALK and KYLESA – Sidewave announced!

  Underground thrash-sludge messiahs HIGH ON FIRE have set a new standard in doom metal.

Boasting apocalyptic riffage and gravel-gargling vocals, their latest opus ‘Snakes for the Devil’ solidifies HIGH ON FIRE as one of the most important bands in metal today, Absolute Punk affirming, “…the band has burned the metal rulebook and forged a new archetype.” Equal parts molten metal and earthquake panic, HIGH ON FIRE’S outrageously loud and absolutely punishing live show is descending upon Brisbane and Melbourne this March.

With stage displays firmly rooted in chaos, an arsenal of releases to back it up, and fervent touring, TRASH TALK has continually astonished loyal fans and newcomers alike. Pushing onward and upward since inception, TRASH TALK has defined, refined, and re-defined themselves as a punk/hardcore juggernaut.

Intelligent and complicated songwriting structures drawing from an array of dizzying musical sources have set KYLESA apart from their sludge-metal peers. Rounded off with an onslaught of psychedelic undercurrents; and jarring, triple-team vocal interaction, KYLESA has truly earned a well-deserved place as the “dark psych-metal titans” (Spin) of the stoner metal community.

HIGH ON FIRE, TRASH TALK and KYLESA will unleash the doom on their Sidewaves this March.

Live Review | Lamb Of God @ Riverstage Brisbane 11 December 2009 w/ Devildriver, Shadows Fall and High on Fire

Author: Lana Harris
Lamb Of GodThe afternoon brought with it dark clouds that took away the light but not the heat, and those of us wrapped in black shuffled through the cyclone wire fence that surrounds Riverstage dripping with something a bit more corporeal than anticipation.

High on Fire began as soon as the gates opened, which meant they finished while I was still trying to fuel up on full strength beer before entering Riverstage’s mid-strength terrain. High on Fire are rumoured to have a huge sound, structurally destructive to smaller venues, and I had been keen to watch that sound explode in the open air of Riverstage. But with four bands scheduled, and only four hours to fit them in before Riverstage’s 10pm curfew, I should have known better.

Shadows Fall were second up, and put on a short, powerful set which showcased the blistering guitar solos the band are known for.
