High Fighter premiere first video from upcoming album


High FighterStoner power doom & sludge metal outfit High Fighter have just unveiled a first music video from their upcoming debut album ‘Scars & Crosses’ for the track ‘Blinders’!

Formed 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 fuelled by beer and the mighty weedian riffs. Add a heavy dose of the blues and these deadly schizophrenic vocals, and these guys and girl offer something special to the Sludge, Blues and Stoner Scene. After their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘The Goat Ritual’ released end of 2014, followed by numerous shows over Europe including UK dates, festivals, several tours and shows with bands such as Ahab, Mammoth Storm, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, The Midnight Ghost Train & many more, HIGH FIGHTER will release their first & full length album ‘Scars & Crosses’ on June 10th 2016 with Svart Records!

While the band follows their DIY- attitude, the self-produced video for ‘Blinders’ has been filmed and edited by High Fighter’s bassist Constantin Wüst. Vocalist Mona Miluski tells The Obelisk: “This shot was fun, 100%-DIY. I also think this track perfectly represents one of the main issues we deal with on our debut record. ‘Scars & Crosses’ is about a dark past, about the wounds and scars of your soul that life may have given you. It’s about your inner demons, and especially people in society or in any relationships will find your scars as a bad attitude, a bad character. You often need to be a ‘Blinder’, change yourself until you will be accepted, liked or loved. On this album we say no, having your scars are not a bad character and you should not change yourself or try to ignore these scars until you’re “worth” to be loved. Learn to also love those who have their scars, we all have them…these darkest days, moments and demons in life, your entire history, our scars engrave us, they belong to you as much as the good sides.“
