Compelling, stark and aggressive 'War Of Words - The Film' Starring Rob Halford and his first solo band 'Fight' unleashes upon legions of Metal maniacs November 20th in North America, November 30th in the United Kingdom & Europe, December 3rd in Australia & New Zealand and December 19th in Japan.
After nineteen years, more than a dozen global concert tours and dozens of gold and platinum awards as the defining vocalist of Judas Priest; Rob Halford departed the band in 1992 to pursue a solo career immediately releasing 'Light Comes Out Of Black' supported by members of Pantera. The track rocketed to the top of radio playlists, and later that summer Rob would assemble his own band 'Fight,' and place most of its new tracks from 'War Of Words' in heavy-radio rotation while aggressively ushering in a new sound for the Metal communities.
Metal God Entertainment is proud to debut the Theatrical and DVD releases of 'Fight War Of Words - The Film,' a Documentary and 5.1 Concert featuring the songs and performances of Rob Halford's first solo band 'Fight.' www.RobHalford.com/trailers
'Fight War Of Words - The Film' brilliantly documents a key moment in Heavy Metal history combining behind-the-scenes, hand-held and pro-shot footage of Fight's original 1992 K5 rehearsal and demonstration-recording sessions; 1993 Amsterdam recording sessions of the original War Of Words Epic / Sony audio release, and pre-tour interviews climaxing with a full-length 5.1 concert filmed at 22 venues in 20 select cities during Fight's first five months of its '1993 - 1994 Nailed To The Road / War Of Words World Tour.'
