Listened to new High on Fire

Yeah, sorry. This isn't a 9/10. It's bland and boring as shit. I feel like Belmont had a conclusion in his head and desperately looked for evidence to support it. 7/10 at best.

Listen to it. It's boring 7/10 Talented, but boring.

It's not even stoner/sludge stuff anymore. It's just riff wanking and monotone vocals. Insert 20 seconds of "arab" sounds. Back to monotone mud

i've only heard those 2 singles, Coming Down was the better of the two. i think this band has gotten better over time

It's great. The riffs are awesome. The drumming is incredible. Will be considered one of their best albums 20 years from now.

Remember when music had to he good to get a 9 instead of "technically" good? Same with abstract jazz Same with shoegaze Same with tech death metal It's "technically" good so we have to forgive the absence of song writing or entertainment

Still loves you was ok. How they light cigarettes was their best.

The few songs I've heard from it are very slow and sludgy. It's cool but I prefer their faster stuff by a lot.

10,000 Years is the only thing I need from this band
