Fight was a band assembled by Judas Priest frontman, Rob Halford, after his departure in 1992. He took with him from Judas Priest the drummer Scott Travis, who actually has not ever left the British band. The line-up was completed by Russ Parrish on guitar, Brian Tilse on guitar and keyboards and Jay Jay on bass guitar. Halford wrote the music for the first album, and is credited for guitars, but he didn't play them on record or live.

The Fight musical proposal was quite different from Halford's former band; it was a mix between the classic metal sound created by Judas Priest and the new, edgier sound of bands like Pantera.

Fight released two albums and one EP before disbandement, but Halford continued to release albums through Apple's online iTunes Store along with his other solo releases in 2006.

On November 20th 2007 Rob Halford's Metal God Entertainment released "War of Words - The Film" on DVD.
