“If you play this record backwards, you'll still hear voices telling you to break shit, get arrested, and drink Jägermeister. They just might suggest you read a history book, too.” – VILLAGE VOICE

“the deeper you go into the record, the more reassured you become that these musicians know what they’re great at.” – NEW YORK TIMES

“if there were a list of heavy metal commandments, number 666 would read: “Thou shalt devote thyself to the worship of High On Fire”. Every riff Matt Pike unleashes is beyond colossal...Pay your respects.” – KERRANG!

“Already regarded as one of modern metal's most face-meltingly fantastic bands, High on Fire further solidifies its reputation with Death is This Communion, the Oakland trio's fourth, most commanding album.” – SAN FRANCISCO WEEKLY

“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
"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

"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
