After the release of their critically acclaimed album in early 2013 and their surprising split right after in early 2013, former A Million Miles front woman Mona Miluski and guitarist Christian Shi Pappas have teamed up with Stoner Rock group Buffalo Hump – who had already been joined by ex-Pyogenesis drummer Thomas Wildelau – to unveil a brand new band known as High Fighter!
Born in summer 2014 andwith those great, former bands involved, High Fighter delivers heavy stoner metal riffs, sludgy blues rock, hardcore elements and the relentless, intense and almost violent vocals by Mona. The band just recorded their first EP called The Goat Ritual – according to the band live over one weekend in their rehearsal room. “No studio, no highclass polished production, just pure, simple and heavy!” stated the band just recently on their Facebook page.
“We decided to record it live, to show our true sound, and thought ‘why not record it in our own rehearsal room, we just want a demo’,” said Mona, vocalist of High Fighter, in a first recent interview about the band on The Sludgelord.
And from there it became more than just a representable demo.
High Fighter’s brand new EP The Goat Ritual is now available for full stream – for free.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, High Fighter have announced their first show in their hometown on December 19th 2014. The band is currently in the writing process for a full-length album and will be unveiling more gigs & news soon.
