Album Review

In some ways, this could have been a Judas Priest album. Since it was the first disc that Rob Halford worked on after his extended tenure in that group, that is certainly understandable. Clearly, he was most likely still aligned in that musical vein and a lot of the sounds here represent that fact. However, there are definitely some differences. First, you can hear a rawer, almost punk-ish aggressive texture on much of the material ("Nailed to the Gun" comes to mind). Next, Halford shows a wider range of vocal styles here than he did with Priest. In fact, there are several points where he sounds like Alice Cooper, and he tries his hand at the more guttural death metal vocal style. The lyrical content on the album has a maturity that Priest seldom, if ever, achieved as well. The recitation of the First Amendment during the title track is brilliant. In some ways, it's too bad that this group only lasted a couple of years. They had a lot of potential. The stunning power ballad "For All Eternity" alone is worth the price of admission for this part of their voyage.

Customer Reviews

One of the best 90's metal albums EVER

I cannot complain about this CD at all. I truly enjoyed this album, start to finish. It's a shame this CD is underrated as it is. Rob Halford is at his creative peak while out of Priest (I love Priest, but I think they've gone into a slump since Defenders). His songwriting is powerful, thought-provoking... simply put, you can connect with it. His vocals are also stellar, and the guitar and drum work on this album is also great. Every song truly stands out. I'd love to give this offering 6 stars, but too bad it's not possible!

War of Words

One of the most underated heavy metal cd's of all time. If you like amazing guitar rif's, speed metal double base drums that pound your chest, and Halford's power, you MUST hear this. Very Heavy, Very Creative, Very Unique. Halford's Best!

This cd rocks

If you like Priest and especially if you like Rob, buy this cd, it is great heavy metal.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '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...
