We finally have a taste of new music from kings of the riff, High on Fire, and as you’d expect from the most consistent band in metal, it fucking rips. ‘Electric Messiah’ is everything you could possibly want; thunderous livewire riffing, propulsive, near-tribal drumming, all tied together by a pant-wettingly deep, low-end bass tone.
Matt Pike’s adoration of Motorhead has always been readily apparent and here more than ever. ‘Electric Messiah’, title track from their upcoming eighth LP, is an unapologetic ode to Lemmy and has us even more jacked for the record.
‘Electric Messiah’ with be released on 5th October via eOne.
