Simply put, High On Fire will hit the road with all guns blazing for what will undoubtedly be one of 2012's best heavy music tours!

High On Fire just unleashed the first music video from De Vermis Mysteriis, for the potent new track "Fertile Green".  Described as the "wildest video in heavy metal history", "Fertile Green" was directed, animated and edited by Phil Mucci (Passion Pit, Islands) and is a described as "frantic psychedelic experience" that expands on De Vermis Mysteriis' deeply mystical undercurrent and story of "the Christ Twin", combining scenes of the past and future with "the story of Balteazeen's sacrifice to the Oracle of Green."  Check out the VICE premiere of High On Fire's wild "Fertile Green" video.
