As a direct sequel to Sleep, High On Fire were bound to deliver a summary form of riff-twisting heavy rock moving from psychotropic to pure acid mayhem looping back into a crucible of metallic monstrosity. High On Fire’s first album The Art Of Self-Defense and especially its spectacular 10-minute finale “Master Of Fists” was a fitting way to close out three decades of heavy rock; nothing beyond was either necessary or feasible.
