With a tracklisting practically reading as a Best Of…, spanning all the way from 2000’s The Art of Self Defence through to last year’s De Vermis Mysteriis, High On Fire’s latest double-live album Spitting Fire Live serves both as a no-brainer purchase for fans, as well as a great (and way overdue) introduction for newcomers to the Oakland trio. Tracked over a pair of shows in December 2012, the Spitting Fire Live Vol 1 & 2  recordings were passed on to Greg Wilkinson and Converge’s Kurt Ballou for mixing, and offer a raw, no-frills playback of High On Fire’s stage performance.

The live album is a curious beast. Many can feel rather soulless and synthetic, a poor imitation of actually being at a gig. Hearing the crowd over the top can be irritating, the tracks – often taken from across a plethora of albums – don’t always run together like a coherent album should, and the sets are often too long to be palatable outside the context of the performance, taking up multiple CDs. Put simply, they’re nerdy and usually the preserve of the super-fan.
