PopMatters

De Vermis Mysteriis, sits triumphant upon the sludge firmament gazing down upon High on Fire’s back catalogue and contemporaries alike

A.V. Club

At this point in its 14-year existence, though, High On Fire feels trapped by its own consistency.

Pitchfork

That's the major difference here from what we got a couple of years ago: The band seems to be taking their time and letting things open up and go wherever they may want to go.

Consequence of Sound

De Vermis Mysteriis gets up in your face, and it never really steps back until it’s over.

No Ripcord

It even crosses paths with their younger graduates at times – but in a way, they remain untouchable, iconic statuettes
