High On Fire have officially finished the recording process for their new album. The band worked with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge) at GodCity Studios. Additional tracking was done by Bryan Sours.
Drummer Des Kensel commented:
“We are pretty happy with how the new material came together on this one. We usually go into the studio with about two-thirds of the record done which can be a little stressful but it forces us to make final arrangement decisions which would normally be put off in a rehearsal studio atmosphere. It also puts some pressure on us to perform at a higher level. The bar has definitely been raised on this one, at least for me. There’s a good mix of fast and slow. The fast has gotten faster and the slow is…still slow.”
Bassist Jeff Matz added:
“We’ve definitely pushed ourselves musically on this album. The material covers a broad range of tempos and styles, but the overall sound and vibe are unmistakably High On Fire.”
Vocalist/guitarist Matt Pike also offered:
“hold on tight! You’re in for a ride!”
