HistoryAfter running away from Judas Priest and initially appearing as Halford with Pantera members as musicians, Halford formed this Pantera-inspired band and proceeded to release two albums (with a Mutations EP in between) until his next project.
A guitarist called Lockner initially replaced Parrish before Chaussee stepped in. Halford garnered opening slots with Metallica and Anthrax. Metal Shop was little other than a L.A.-based cover band featuring L.A. Guns' Ralph Saenz and former DLR drummer Ray Luzier.
The band announced it might release a live DVD culled from shows performed in 1993 at the beginning of 2005. A DVD called War Of Words The Film and a CD called K5 - The War Of Words - Demos appeared in 2007 courtesy of Metal God Entertainment. The label released Into The Pit a 4-disc FIGHT retrospective featuring the band's three audio recordings re-engineered for release. Those were War Of Words - remixed & remastered, Mutations - remastered, A Small Deadly Space - remixed & remastered plus a two-hour DVD Fight Live In Phoenix, a 24-page full-color booklet and a custom-designed digi-box.
FIGHT - WAR OF WORDS THE FILM (DVD) - METAL GOD ENTERTAINMENT
War Of Words is the story of Fight, in particular how the band got started following Rob Halford’s departure from Judas Priest. A documentary provides early rehearsal footage and interviews that show the band being put together very quickly and it is obvious that Rob Halford had written and planned a lot before the quintet were actually assembled. Twelve live songs, including better known tracks like Into The Pit and Immortal Sin to the lesser heard ones like Contortion, from various concerts are included each giving a different feel of the band performing with an attitude not unlike Pantera of the same era. The bonus material here includes three video clips, footage from Mutations Live 1993 at New York’s Sony Music Studios and a trailer for Halford Live At Rock In Rio III. - Anna Tergel
FIGHT K5 - THE WAR OF WORDS DEMOS - METAL GOD ENTERTAINMENT
A collection of 'demo' songs from the very early days of Fight is put together and five unheard songs, Now You Die, Forbidden, Down, Beast Denies and Dead Men Talk, are added to make this a 16 track CD in the name of Fight K5. This is essentially all The War Of Words Demo is and as such appeals to the hardcore Rob Halford or Fight fans. The songs by their nature are not final cuts and provide something different for the said fans and perhaps something to chew on for the curious. - Anna Tergel
