Album of the Day 6/18/12: High On Fire - De Vermis Mysteriis
I'm a music snob. I admit it. I'm at my most snobish when discussing metal and all of its various sub-genres. I just feel the mainstream media and major record labels have spent the last 30+ years trying to distort what metal is and should be in favor of achieving a wider audience. It happens in all genres - punk, blues, country, jazz - but I'm most offended where metal is concerned. That's one reason why it's extremely important to me that when a great metal band releases a great album I need to tell as many people as possible about it. Case in point, the newest album from High On Fire.
