HELL YES!! There’s basically no way you could like High on Fire and not Dopesmoker. It’s definitely not as continuously pummeling as HoF, but I really enjoy how it ebbs and flows as a track. It has some very intense moment followed by some room to breath and back again.

Morrissey is clearly jealous.

I might also try The Art of Self Defense by High on Fire. Matt Pike’s vocals aren’t necessarily the cleanest, but there’s a lot of melody that comes through in my opinion. As someone who prefers clean vocals for the most part, Matt Pike kind of strikes the perfect metal balance where it’s rough but there’s still some clarity.

And since I mentioned High on Fire, I should probably mention Holy Mountain by Sleep, which also features Matt Pike on guitar, but a different vocalist.

Too bad the screen cap of the video gives everything away…

That’s not a picture from his stamp at Arnold’s is it?

Glad to see these guys getting some press, even if it’s just because of Craig Finn.

This is a different mix than the original version that was posted. I’m wondering which one will end up on the album. My vote is for the first one.

I’m not a huge fan of this list, but honestly, his albums are all so good that it really doesn’t matter. XO would be my number 1, for the record.

Unrelated, but has the color hand vs. the rest of Elliott Smith being black and white on the cover of Figure 8 ever bothered anyone else?
