Weekly summer sale: HIGH ON FIRE The Art Of Self Defense 2LP

287503This week we are starting with a new initiative to get you through the summer without spending too much money. Every week on Tuesday we’ll put an album online for a very low price, it will stay that way for a week and then it will go back to normal. It could be a Roadburn Records or Burning World Records release, or an album from another label.

This week we’ll start of with the stoner milestone that is High On Fire’s The Art Of Self Defense on Southern Lord records on black vinyl. Remastered and with bonus tracks. Every doom- and stonerhead should have one!

The Art Of Self Defense” was initially released in 2000 by Man’s Ruin Records. Featuring the collective energies of guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel, and bassist George Rice with producer Billy Anderson, the record billows at the seams with Pike’s instantly recognizable guitar tone, first unleashed during his days with stoner metal behemoths SLEEP. An audio hail storm of piledriving riffs, booming rhythms and Pike’s gruff vocal tirades, “The Art Of Self Defense” remains a staple in HIGH ON FIRE’s renowned catalog of audio greatness.

Initially this one was quite expensive to get. Especially over here in Europe. But now is your chance to get it for a very attractive price: 16 euro. Order yours before the price goes back to normal, in our online store.
