What can I say about Matt Pike that hasn't been said before, the guy just creates some of the best music out there today consistently. The new album, Snakes for the Divine, is just another example of his greatness. The opening riff to the title song is so catchy you will just want to put it on repeat. Frost Hammer gives you the feeling of a single and I just love it when he yells, FROST HAMMER! As you're listening to the song How Dark We Pray it just gives you this feeling to go out and start clubbing baby seals, and Holy Flames of the Fire Spitter is the best closer to an album since Razor Hoof, I just love the Hoo Ha part of song. This album is easily a 9 out of 10, but I do have one problem with this album. Pike's guitar can almost be to heavy at times because it can drown out the sound of Kensel's drumming which is a shame because he is a great drummer.
