Fight was formed in the Summer of 1993 by vocalist Rob Halford (Judas Priest). Inspired by the brutal sound of Pantera during their 1991 tour, Rob steered the group in an aggressive, more American-styled direction of heavy metal. Bad blood between Halford and the other members of Judas Priest caused the band to take a long break in 1992. In this time, Rob would produce the solo album on the side, and return to the band afterwards - that was the plan. However the relationship between Rob and Priest became steadily worse in 1992, and in September he was legally no longer part of the band.
