“You looking for some heavy tunes, look no further, High Fighter brings it!!”
John Garcia (Kyuss, Vista Chino, Unida, Slo Burn…)
“Filled with scull-crunching riffs and thunderously lumbering rhythms,
Scars & Crosses is one of the heaviest debuts you are going to hear all year!“
“Hamburg’s High Fighter have carved out a class of their own. With one simple tweak, ‘Scars & Crosses’ is a challenging, disorientating and compelling take on a familiar formula, and one that could likely see them as this year’s breakout act!“
The riffs will simply crush your skull and Mona’s vocals are perhaps the heaviest they have ever been. So watch out…If you’re into Doom, Blues, Sludge, Stoner and Heavy Metal then look no further as HIGH FIGHTER have it all and are ready to KICK ASS to show the world what they can do!” Outlaws of the Sun
“Riffs and screams to drown to, close your eyes and dive in!”
Jon Paul Davis, Conan
Hamburg-based Sludge & Stoner Metal band HIGH FIGHTER have announced to return to the UK this summer! Alongside British heavyweights TUSKAR and MY DIABLO, the band will be hitting the UK roads for 6 dates in August, including a festival show at Bolton’s Riff Fest.
Born in the summer of 2014 by former band members of A Million Miles, Buffalo Hump and Pyogenesis, this band is a volatile cocktail of heavy as hell riffs! Add a heavy dose of the blues and these deadly schizophrenic vocals and HIGH FIGHTER offer something new to the Sludge, Stoner, Doom & Metal Scene to fuel your appetize with. After their ciritically acclaimed debut EP ‘The Goat Ritual’ released end of 2014, followed by numerous shows all over Europe including festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, Desertfest Berlin & Antwerp, Stoned From The Underground, Sonic Blast, Up In Smoke and many more, as well as several gigs and tours with bands alike Ahab, Conan, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Elder, Downfall of Gaia, Mammoth Storm, Brant Bjork, The Midnight Ghost Train, Mantar or Earth Ship to name just a few, HIGH FIGHTER released their first full length album ‘Scars & Crosses‘ in June 2016 with Svart Records.
It’s been three years ago since the band toured the United Kingdom while on their first European tour ever back in early 2015. This August, HIGH FIGHTER will bring their latest record ‘Scars & Crosses’ as well as some brand new material live on stage. Beside some current dates with Mantar in Germany this summer, it will be one of the last tours HIGH FIGHTER will play this year and before they are going to release their second full length album in early 2019.
