The project was, initially, meant to be a brief solo indulgence while Rob remained a member of Judas Priest. However, their relationship became steadily worse in 1992, and in September he was legally no longer part of the band.
Fight's first album War Of Words was released in 1993. Drawing strongly from aggressive, American-styled Heavy Metal and elements of Thrash, the album sold over 200,000 copies and remains a favourite amongst Priest fans. An EP of live tracks and remixes followed in 1994, and in 1995 the band released their second and final album A Small Deadly Space, which contained a rough, Alternative Metal sound and saw the other band members contribute to the writing process.
Although Rob was preparing material for a third album, Fight split in the fall of 1995 after Epic Records dropped them.
A resurgence of sorts occured in 2007 with the release of the War Of Words demos and a DVD package chronicling the band's beginnings and containing rare live footage.
