High on Fire

Sam Velde and Greg Anderson of The Power of The Riff festival have unleashed their thoughts on the past year, giving us with their favorite shows and albums of 2012. Check out their picks from this year below.

Power of the Riff still has one show left in 2012 and as discussed, its a whopper. Look for High on Fire, sunn o))), Corrosion of Conformity, Black Breath, Dead in the Dirt, Loincloth and Void ov Voices to play Henry Fonda Theater in LA on 12/20. Tickets are still available. As you may remember Power of The Riff invaded the East Coast over Labor Day Weekend this year (pics from day 1 HERE, day 2 HERE).

Best of 2012 according to Power of The Riff is below.

Once I thought I was listening to 50 minutes of an awesome sun0)))) album, until I realized it was just an instrument cable half-unplugged on an amp.

Wasn't one of the High On Fire NY shows recorded for a LIVE album?

Both shows were.

I believe the 1st one was also shot for a DVD too, correct me if I'm somehow mistaken.

And 4:13, your joke might've worked if an instrument cable half-unplugged on an amp could be loud enough to blow the roof off the place.

Does you mean the new Keeef Morris cover band D-Off! D-Beat is now all the rage over at Vice Recordings ever since someone played them a track off of "Why" last week.

Your turds are like an enormous door slamming in the depths of Hell.
