Oakland’s High On Fire was started by guitarist Matt Pike shortly after the break up of his previous band, the legendary doom band Sleep. Don’t think High On Fire is all doom and gloom though, their sound is more high energy with catchy sludge riffs. Also on tour is Kvelertak, a favorite band of mine that blurs the lines between punk, black metal and rock and roll. Plus they put on one of the wildest shows you’ll ever see. Kvelertak is from Norway and their song lyrics are all in their native tongue but it doesn’t matter if you know what they’re saying or not because they bring killer riff after killer riff! Music is the universal language after all. Opening up this leg of the tour will be the Doomriders. This Boston based band is led by Nate Newton (also of Converge and Old Man Gloom) and they really shred. You may be noticing something tying all these bands together: they all play some sweet riffage! This show is going to be crazy and there is literally nowhere else better to be on a cold Tuesday in November. Now check out these awesome tunes by the bands below and let me know which one you’re most excited to see at this show.


  1. Kvelertak, because I was a pussy and didn’t go when they headlined at RnR a while back.

  2. Doom riders because they are the only band on this bill I have not seen live yet.

  3. Kvelertak. I missed them when they played DC a few months ago and I haven’t forgiven myself for it.

  4. Doomriders because America.

  5. Kvelertak. I’ve heard awesome things about their live show and really got into them a few months ago. Love their black metal punk fusion!

  6. Doomriders gimme gimme gimme!

  7. I would love to see High on Fire because Matt Pike is a living legend and I was out of town last year when they played here!

  8. Kvelertak. Saw them in Philadelphia and loved them…but I have yet to see them in DC.

  9. High on Fire because as a servant to the riff, they are my masters.

  10. Kvelertak, because I haven’t seen them yet.

  22. Kvelertak! As much as I love High on Fire, I was bummed to miss Kvelertak last time due to being sick. Now is the time!
