High On Fire have a distinct, unique sound that can be mistaken for no other band. This album is proof that this band is expanding that sound to make it yet even more unique.

So let me start with a description for those who are unfamiliar with the band. Picture a sound of heavy-as-hell droning, add some soaring leads on top, add in vocals that sound like a tortured Lemmy Kilmister, and as a bonus (which is a fairly new improvement made by this band) add in some folky-type sounding instruments every now and then. This is some very powerful music to say the least.

Am I the only one who thinks that acoustic riff in Wastes of Tiamat is SICK?

This is actually much better than Blessed Black Wings

Although I really like the sound and prominence of the drums on Blessed Black Wings, the guitars and vocals are more powerful here on Death Is This Communion. So I would agree in saying that this is an improvement of their style.
Great dirty sludge
