Fight (90s)

When lead singer and heavy metal legend Rob Halford left Judas Priest in the early '90s (following two decades of service in the veteran band), he quickly rebounded with a ferocious new metal band called Fight, which he co-founded with Priest drummer Scott Travis. Fleshing out the group's lineup with guitarists Russ Parrish and Brian Tilse and bassist Jay Jay, Halford took Fight into the studio and recorded War of Words in 1993.

Taking a deliberate step away from the old-school tendencies and cartoon metal lyrics of his former band, Halford based the Fight's sound on the more sleek, thrash-oriented approach of newer metal outfits like Pantera and matched the intense sound with decidedly more topical and socially relevant lyrics. Although it didn't make much of a splash in the mainstream world, War of Words proved to be a hit among Halford's fans, and Fight embarked on a successful tour in 1993 and 1994.

Abandoning the elaborate staging, lights, and props that Priest was famous for, Halford and company delivered their material with the stripped-down intensity and hunger of a baby band while paying a debt to its past (and showing its commitment to heavy metal) with covers of Priest's "Freewheel Burning" and Black Sabbath's "Symptom of the Universe." Mutations, an EP of live tracks and remixes, was released in 1994, followed by Fight's second full-length release, 1995's A Small Deadly Space, which saw Russ Parrish replaced by new guitarist Mark Chaussee. The album, featuring a more collaborative songwriting approach from the band, offered a slightly toned-down version of War of Words' full-bore intensity and lacked the excitement of Parrish's fluid soloing, but otherwise maintained the straightforward metal sound and Halford's darker, real-life horror lyrical themes. A Small Deadly Space would be Fight's final offering; Halford disbanded the group in 1996 and moved on to new stylistic pastures with his next project, the Trent Reznor-produced Two. ~ Andy Hinds, Rovi

Fight!
With Priest or on his own Halford is incredible !!! A True Metal God \m/ follow for a follow !!! I need more Metal Heads to follow me. Dude said Metal was dead ? WTF is said ! But Metal has gone underground . The music industry is f**ked ! They don't promote Metal like in the 80's and 90's . They just push out crap for 12yr old girls. Just crap. Real Metal Bands are found out by word of mouth. Or on the internet. Metal is not Dead !
Vicious! Vicious!

I saw JP 1986 in Chicago on the Turbo Tour. It wasn't a very good album, but Priest was incredible.

Halford could kick the writer of this bio's a** with one hand behind his back. Cartoon Metal? When the hammer meets the anvil, etc? If that's cartoon, I'll have some more please.
Halford has a legendary voice of the gods..er demons, er somewhere else besides this terra firma.
Man Halford can sing.
I saw judas priest 26 times. every show in philly since 81. had tixs for the 1980 british steel tour but dad wouldnt let me go. but i never seen fight. oh well!
war of words is an insane album and I love the last song of the album visious and I love every song in it. I's just enough punk and metal together and I just want to cause a war with it playing in the back ground.
Excellent music. But "cartoon metal lyrics of his former band"? Judas Priest had "cartoon metal lyrics"? That I doubt!

I saw Fight together with Anthrax(Bush on vocals) They both kicked a**!!
Nobody, I mean NOBODY can hold a candle to Fight's War of Words...best metal album of the 90's for the genre...
Y-YEAH

Halford is the definition of Metal. Fight is rage unleashed. Too bad they went away. The world needs more bands like Fight. War of Words is one of a kind, nothing comes close.
Agreed! Totally awesome! AND it came out when the US was experiencing a severe metal drought. Bonus!
This album is unmatched.
War of Words is simply one of the best metal albums of all times.
