HIGH FIGHTER premiere lyric video for ‘When We Suffer’, featuring Anton Lisovoj of DOWNFALL OF GAIA!
New album Champain coming July 26th on Argonauta Records,
On tour with DOPETHRONE this Summer!
July 26th will see Sludge and Stoner Metal rockers High Fighter release their sophomore, critically acclaimed album Champain with Argonauta Records. Today the Hamburg based five-piece is unleashing a third and final single before this beast of an album drops, and premiere a lyric video for the track When We Suffer, featuring Anton Lisovoj of post-Black Metal heavyweights Downfall of Gaia!
Champain is an album that you won’t expect from High Fighter, songs such as the just released Before I Disappear or Dead Gift, create an eerie and gloomy atmosphere where the mood can be pitch-black in places. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jan Oberg (Earth Ship / Grin) at the Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin, it has a heavier and fast-paced sound compared to High Fighter‘s first records. Champain isn’t for the faint hearted and the band may actually surprise a lot of their established fanbase with this album, but have also called in a few favours for it. As you have Anton Lisovoj of Downfall of Gaia fame providing vocals on the excellent song – When We Suffer.
“It is a real pleasure and honour to for me being added to this record.“ Lisovoj says. “Besides the fact that all Fighters became real friends over the last few years, it was a fantastic feeling to work with these talented musicians.”
High Fighter comments:“We feel stoked Anton is a part of our Champain. Having toured with Downfall of Gaia a couple of times and since then became close friends, we are also big fans of his vocal colourtones. We could not think about someone more perfect for When We Suffer, which may be the only kind of a “ballad”on the entire record if you could even say so, all the more it’s a perfect match having such a great Black Metal vocalist like Anton, giving this song its very special vibe.”
