|Fight's Into the Pit Limited Edition Box Set is an exclusive numbered edition and features a Rob Halford autograph, liner notes detailing each recording, 6 panel custom-designed Fight digipak, 3 CDs and 1 DVD mounted on dual trays, 24 page detailed Fight discography booklet, and rare Fight photographs from 1992 through 1995.|
War of Words - Remixed and Remastered: War of Words recognized as a top 5 Metal release of the 1990s - Rob Halford's new solo band debuted seven tracks straight into heavy U.S. radio rotation. Remixed in 2007 by Producer Roy Z. (Halford, Bruce Dickinson, Judas Priest), War of Words is sonically stunning delivering thrash and metal elements like never-before. A masterpiece for generations of metal fans.
Mutations - Remastered: Producers Rob Halford and Attie Bauw (Halford, Fight, Judas Priest) combined talents on Fight's second release Mutations for U.S. Radio Programmers supporting Fight's 1993-1994 "Nailed to the Road" World Tour. Mutations features 1993 live performances of Into the Pit, Nailed to the Gun, Little Crazy and Freewheel Burning, a Judas Pirest classic, all recorded live at Sony Music's New York Studios and broadcast live across North America via radio. Producer Attie Bauw choreographs powerful new mixes of Fight classics: War of Words, Kill It, Vicious, Immortal Sin and Little Crazy. Mutations was originally released Spring 1994 in a limited run of 5,000 units.
A Small Deadly Space - Remixed and Remastered: Challenging and inventive, Fight's 3rd release saw Rob Halford inviting his band to experiment with a developing 1990s metal sound. Fight's heavier sound featured detuned guitars and newer production elements introduced by Producer Attie Bauw (Halford, Fight, Judas Priest) which presented a more polished sound for the band. Remixed in 2008 by Producer Roy Z. (Halford, Bruce Dickinson, Judas Priest), A Small Deadly Space - Remixed and Remastered debuts a meaner sounding Fight performance on the band's final studio release of the '90s.
Live in Phoenix DVD: Weeks after signing with Epic / Sony, Fight scheduled three rare August 1993 concerts in Phoenix, AZ for global press and label executives, and in support of their September '93 release War of Words. Live In Phoenix captures Rob Halford's third Fight performance in 2 nights. A one-camera copy of this performance circulated amongst bootleggers dating back to 1993. Raw and punishing, this rare two-camera shoot of Fight is restored and one of the best video recordings to survive the band's early club performances. Additional footage includes rare studio footage, interviews, and a close-up look at The Metal God's Cairns, Australia bungee jump.
Album Notes and Credits
Notes & Personnel Info
|For a brief period of time during the early to mid-'90s, it seemed like Rob Halford would be set to carry on in his metallic path with Fight for the foreseeable future. His first band after leaving Judas Priest in 1991, Fight continued in the 100-percent pure metal direction of the final Halford/Priest album, 1990s Painkiller, with a healthy dose of Pantera's power metal thrown in for good measure. However, Fight only mustered a total of three releases during their tenure together (one of which was a half live/half remix set) -- 1993's War of Words, 1994's Mutations, and 1995's A Small Deadly Space -- before splitting up. With these albums out of print by the early 21st century (and Halford's spotlight heightened by rejoining Priest around this time), it was only a matter of time until Fight's trio of releases was remastered and/or reissued. And in 2008, Fight got the box set treatment, with the three CD/one DVD set, Into the Pit. All three of the aforementioned discs are included here, and they sound as viciously metallic as they did during the first go 'round. But it's the DVD that will probably convince most Halford-holics to take the plunge with this set, as it contains a live concert, as well as a healthy helping of various footage circa this era. Overall, Into the Pit is a pretty darn impressively assembled package. ~ Greg Prato|
