High on Fire interview with frontman Matt Pike

In this week's Headbangers Ball Blog Podcast, we interview singer and guitarist Matt Pike from the stormin' psychedelic High on Fire. The group recently released the highly acclaimed album Death is This Communion, and will be one of the band's featured on this year's Gigantour, which starts April 28 in Quebec City, Quebec.

During our interview, Pike talked about ascending the metal ladder, the art of complex riffing, breaking out of the stoner-rock box, the spirituality beneath the Fire, the influence of Megadeth, the politics listeners miss in his music and plans for the follow-up to Death is This Communion.
