'The Art Of Self Defense' was initially released in 2000 by Manâ€™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 Pikeâ€™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 Pikeâ€™s gruff vocal tirades, 'The Art Of Self Defense' remains a staple in HIGH ON FIREâ€™s renowned catalog of audio greatness.
