    "the new High On Fire Blessed Black Wings record [is] the most brutal metal album I've heard in years." – Dave Grohl (SPIN Magazine)


    "No longer the best stoner-metal band in the land, High on Fire is now clearly, simply one of the country's best metal bands, period." – DALLAS OBSERVER


    "shirtless metal somewhere between Motorhead's biker thunder and Slayer's muscular riffology. Still far and away one of the best metal acts going." – AUSTIN AMERICAN STATESMAN


    "the trio will steamroll your senses — a year of nonstop touring behind 2005's Blessed Black Wings has made the already tight HoF an unstoppable metal monster" – NEW TIMES


    "HIGH ON FIRE is the sludgy resin from 30 years of super-hard-rock history transubstantiated into three men from Oakland with low-slung jeans" – NEW YORK TIMES 

    "the apocalypse's doomy, amp-destroying fifth horseman… galloping mammoth metal" – SPIN


    "unbelievably heavy…massive crunching riffs and drums that slam like vault doors" – REVOLVER  


    "HIGH ON FIRE build a temple to The Riff and preach its word as loudly as humanly possible" – AUSTIN CHRONICLE

    "Tony Iommi's jaw would drop." – KERRANG!   


    "For a band getting as much crossover attention as they do, locals High on Fire have remained staunchly, unapologetically metal over the years. Celtic Frost-meets-the Melvins riffage, topped off with vocals so hoarse they make Lemmy sound like a choirboy." – SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN


    "the sound of the planet getting broadsided by a shower of asteroids, and the crushing terror of 20-story stone beasts methodically obliterating everything in their path with each malevolent stomp. And you won't want it to end." – PHOENIX NEW TIMES


    "On Blessed Black Wings, High on Fire's third full-length, the Bay Area power trio has really come into its own as one of the most punishing metal bands on the planet." – MIAMI NEW TIMES  


    "HIGH ON FIRE are back in the master's chair, this is 'Blessed…' indeed." – ROCK SOUND
