High On Fire Pulls Out Of Speed Of The Wizard Tour With Municipal Waste

High On Fire has announced that they have had to pull out of the Speed Of The Wizard tour, alongside Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust and Haunt.

The band has provided a statement: “(Guitarist, vocalist) Matt (Pike) has a medical emergency culminating in the partial amputation of one of his toes. The scheduling of this procedure is immediate and the recovery time will overlap our intended tour with MW. We will unfortunately be unable to participate in this tour but will be back stronger than ever in 2019!”

The tour itself will continue on without High on Fire as scheduled. Municipal Waste has provided a statement: “First and foremost we wish our friend Matt the best of luck with his recovery. We need him, the metal world in general needs him. We would much rather have him miss a tour to heal up rather than not having any more Matt Pike music in the future. High On Fire‘s new album is amazing and we love him and his band mates so much. That being said after much discussion us Toxic and Haunt are still going to do the tour. It just makes sense, why make something negative worse? Get better Matt we love you.”

Earlier this month, High On Fire frontman Matt Pike was interviewed by Metal Underground, where he discussed the band’s new album, “Electric Messiah,” Lemmy and more. You can check it out below.

The Crown releases video for title track of upcoming new album, ‘Cobra Speed Venom’

– February 13th, 2018 –

Swedish death metal legends The Crown will release their new album, Cobra Speed Venom, on March 16th via Metal Blade Records. Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!

The Crown has now released the 2nd single taken off Cobra Speed Venom. To watch the full production video clip for the title track from Cobra Speed Venom, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=PCe9qtABof8

The Crown comments: “A 5 minute Death Metal Grindcore Opera! Take a deep breath before the plunge – This will drag you down into the deep Waters!”

Comments The Crown on their new album Cobra Speed Venom: “We are really looking forward to finally be able to show our fans how damn good this band can be when the circumstances are right. With that I mean to be able to do an album the way we want to do it: creating as a band, rehearsing as a band, recording as a band. You will hear a band performing here, with fierce energy and hunger!”

To watch the video for the first single, “Iron Crown”, please visit: metalblade.com/thecrown – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–ltd. first edition Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
–180g black vinyl
–viole(n)t blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)

With their motivation at an all-time high, The Crown spent most of 2017 intensely rehearsing 13 new songs. They eventually entered the classic Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordstrom to record what would become their new album, Cobra Speed Venom. The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n’ roll, which really shows that The Crown has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.

After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art – and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.
