It might have taken 30-odd years, but metal band have finally caught up to the rest of popular music by finally letting truly imaginative and inventive filmmakers create clever videos that complement the music perfectly. There have been a bevy of excellent metal videos in the past couple years, but the new clip for High on Fire's "Fertile Green" looks like an all-timer. Directed by Phil Mucci, it's a wild, customized van airbrush painting brought to life, involving a lone biker, a crazy woman oracle, and loads and loads of violence. It's exactly like a High on Fire song: loaded with vibrant imagery, kind of muddled, but 100 percent awesome.
In other news, High in Fire leader Matt Pike is out of rehab, and is set to take his band back out on the road, starting next month in Australia. In a succinct statement, Pike says, "As I acclimate back to society, I realize the beast within is even sharper and stronger!"
Welcome back, Matt.
