The Decibel Mag tour with former Immortal frontman Abbath's new eponymous band, High on Fire, Skeletonwitch (with new singer Adam Clemans of Wolvhammer), and Tribulation hit NYC on Tuesday (4/12) at Webster Hall. We already posted a lengthy review of the San Francisco show. Here's an excerpt of that:

This is the second time I’ve seen High on Fire play in support of their 2015 release Luminiferous, an album which apparently I am in the minority negative critical opinion on. Both times Pike’s set culled heavily from the record, and both times the set was a blast to watch, offering proof in support of the idea that good songwriting and good performance are separate trains that often run along the same track, but don’t necessarily have to. To Pike’s credit, he did play the two most vital cuts from that album, “Slave the Hive” and “The Falconist,” alongside other ‘greatest hits’ jams like “Devilution” and “Rumors of War.” High on Fire albums are usually 30% bangers and 70% plodders (not necessarily a bad thing) but their live sets wisely spring mostly from the more visceral 30%.

Unfortunately we missed Tribulation and Skeletonwitch at the NYC show. But pictures of Abbath and High on Fire, with their setlists, continue below:
