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 20 in North America, November 30 in the United Kingdom and Europe, December 3 in Australia and New Zealand and December 19 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.

"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".

Rare audio and film footage of FIGHT's earliest concert performances in Europe, United Kingdom, USA, Mexico and Japan have been restored. Stereo and 5.1 Dolby surround mixes have been produced by Roy Z. 5.1 Dolby surround encoding and mastering for DVD and The Metal God's theatrical premiers handled by industry giant Technicolor.

"Fight War Of Words - The Film" will theatrically premier at 5.1 Dolby Surround Digital cinemas in:

New York: November 14
Hollywood: November 20
San Francisco: November 28
Detroit: November 28
London: December 18

Tickets are limited for this rare opportunity to experience "Fight War Of Words - The Film" in 5.1 Dolby Surround Digital cinema and participate in a rare conversation with The Metal God, Rob Halford, as he relates his experiences of his first solo band.

Too bad I can't see it in Seattle. I guess we're still a second rate city, with no Rob Halford fans up here.
