HIGH ON FIRE’S “SNAKES FOR THE DIVINE” IS, IN FACT, DIVINE
I’d normally never use a word like “divine” or “glorious” without a hint of irony, since people who do use those words without a hint a irony turn out to be annoying ten out of ten times, and life is just too short.
So let’s just take a page from the Bob Cock playbook and call “Snakes for the Divine,” the title track from the forthcoming new High on Fire offering, AWESOME. I totally forgot to eat lunch today, so I’ve been trying to get outside for twenty minutes to grab some food; unfortunately, my desire to listen to this song on repeat got the best of me, and before I knew it, I was sitting here in my chair, coat on, just rocking out for an extended period of time. And I’m not even high. If my tummy hadn’t suddenly growled, I’d probably have forgotten to get some lunch yet again.
I generally think of Spin Magazine as being about as metal-friendly as rust, but they’ve got the stream of the song, so whatever. I’d visit the website of a male Patti LuPone impersonator if they were streaming a new High on Fire song.
Snakes for the Divine comes out February 23 on E1.
