Today’s Hype! is brought you by Advil and a greasy spoon breakfast, heavy on the grease. Last night I attended the High On Fire/Kvelertak/Doomriders show at Underground Arts here in Philly and let me tell you, did I ever feel stupid for not putting more time into becoming a fan of High On Fire earlier.

I guess they’ll just have to accept my apology and continue to take my money any time they come into a 100 mile radius of me again. I repeat, they ruled.
It should also be noted that the lead singer of Kvelertak came onto stage with his head up the ass of an owl. And killed it.
