Prior to the Fire is the second studio album by Canadian hard rock group Priestess. Recorded in Los Angeles with producer David Schiffman, the album was initially released on October 20, 2009, by Indica Records in Canada.

Priestess isn't a band out there blazing paths. Instead, they play the sort of fast, crunching stoner-metal that Motörhead and first-album Black Sabbath pioneered and that a few thousand bands have attempted to perfect ever since. What made them special was their way with a hook. So if Prior to the Fire does make its way onto your iPod, you probably won't hit skip when its songs come up on shuffle, especially if you're already invested in this kind of thing. But when you hold it up to something great in the same vein, like High on Fire's masterful new Snakes for the Divine, it suffers. That album is the sound of a band at the peak of its powers, dropping bombs for the fuck of it.

Calen Henry The progginess of Mastodon meets the driving hard rock of their debut. One of the 2000s underrated gems. Plus it has a track about Robocop, a track about werewolves, a track about Lone Wolf and Cub, and a track about Dragonball Z. FYI: the LP is a dual 180g coloured set, one orange and one teal, matching the cover art.

Album Name Prior to the Fire. Other productions from Priestess. Canadian-European Tour (Promo Sampler).

Recorded at New King Sound and The Steakhouse; additional recording at OFR Studio.

I really enjoyed Priestess’ debut album Hello Master. I thought it was a great stoner rock album (emphasis on the ‘rock’), although it had a few weak spots. The track ‘Lay Down’ garnered Priestess some fame when it was included on Guitar Hero III and is one of the Canadian foursome’s best tracks to date. I was curious to see if Priestess would be able to top it with Prior To The Fire. The answer is yes. Priestess have maintained a similar sound on Prior To The Fire, mixing rock and metal with a heavy stoner influence and doing it extremely well.

To promote the album, Priestess committed to a regular touring schedule which saw them frequently being selected to support more well-known acts. Motörhead took notice of Priestess and made them the opening act on several dates in Canada in 2005 before the release of Hello Master. Prior to the Fire, dispute with RCA and departure for Tee Pee Records (2008-2011). Priestess' second album, however, was constantly impeded before, during, and after recording. All throughout, RCA debated with the band over whether any of the songs were worthy of being singles that could sell the album substantially.
