Filmed in August 2020 at an industrial, breathtaking setting of the Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord, Germany, High Fighter’s only show since the beginning of the pandemic; under strict Covid-rules and without a crowd, was aired on German TV and iconic live format WDR Rockpalast as part of a special “Offstage” series.

The live album was recorded by Dominik Schenke with a pre-mix by Christoph Scheidel at 79 Sound Studio, while Jan Oberg (Earth Ship / Grin) added the final mix and mastering at Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin. With their vibrant blend of sludge metal, doom and stoner blues- core, High Fighter’s »Live at WDR Rockpalast« features a heavy set and collection of songs taken from the band’s first 3 records: The rough and raw, 2014 debut EP »The Goat Ritual«, their first full-length album »Scars & Crosses« (Svart Records, 2016), and the latest, fast-paced and brutal sludge juggernaut »Champain«, released in 2019 on Argonauta Records.

»Live at WDR Rockpalast« is available digitally and as a limited Vinyl edition only. Due to the ongoing pressing plants situation, the LP comes with a delay but will be added on Bandcamp soon.

“The real success here though is the band and their music. Their sludge metal groove is simply epic on this record. You get a real sense of the power and majesty of the writing… It’s a live album that urges you to go to a venue and watch in person. High Fighter, take a bow.” — Devolution Magazine
