I love the internet...for the most part anyway. Yes, it kinda ruins the whole experience of picking up a new album and getting home to hear it for the first time, but it also keeps you from buying something you're not going to like. And considering I've been burned before (see Load), I'll take it.

Anyway, the peeps in San Diego were treated to a new High on Fire tune called "Serums of Liao" when the band played at the Casbah back on November 14 and someone in the crowd was kind enough to let us hear it too.

As is to be expected, the audio quality ain't the best but I've heard enough to know that if the rest of their new stuff sounds like "Serums of Liao", me and my fellow High On Fire fans will be hooked up with a good album when the time comes.
