Fertile Green, a track from the upcoming album ‘De Vermis Mysteriis’ by stoner metal juggernauts High on Fire is streaming at Pitchfork. Click on the link below to check out the song. More details about the release date and track listing can be found here.
This is what front man Matt Pike had to say about the concept of the album, ” I got this idea about Jesus Christ and the Immaculate Conception: What if Jesus had a twin who died at birth to give Jesus his life? And then what if the twin became a time traveler right then? He lives his life only going forward until he finds this scroll from an ancient Chinese alchemist who derived a serum out of the black lotus which is actually in Robert E. Howards Conan stories and then he starts traveling back in time. He can see the past through his ancestors eyes, but his enemies can kill him if they kill the ancestor that he is seeing through at the time. Basically, he keeps waking up in other peoples bodies at bad times. It s kinda like that old TV show Quantum Leap. Kurt actually pointed that out to me after I told him the idea. But whatever time travel is a killer concept.”
Okay, we don’t get it but we agree with Matt anyways.
