Boston, MA band MASS is a juggernaut in melodic metal circles. They self-released a self-titled debut vinyl-only 4 song EP in 1984, selling 10,000 units in the Boston area alone! By 1985, the band signed to a major label and released the legendary New Birth album on RCA Records. It wasn't until 1988 that the band resurfaced on Enigma Records with the classic 6 song EP, Take You Home. 1989 saw the release of Voices In the Night produced by Stryper frontman, Michael Sweet and the band became a household name in mainstream and Christian metal circles! What most fans never knew was that MASS actually signed an ill-fated record deal with A&M Records in 1982, when the band was still full of teenagers! Fighter was recorded on a budget of $150,000 with the intent to release on their new label. Conflicts between the band?s manager and new label escalated and legal issues prevented the release from ever seeing the light of day until 2010 when it released on the Iowa-based Retroactive Records! Four tracks from the 1982 A&M Fighter album, Too Far Gone, Voyager, Do You Love Me, and Watch Her Walk, ended up on 1985s RCA album, New Birth. This release is special because the 1982 A&M Fighter album was the way MASS originally wrote these songs during their teenage years  different recordings, different tempos, and even different lyrics. Tom Allom (Judas Priest) produced this classic metal release from 1982. Its the same musical genius MASS has provided on every release - full of hard-charging metallic guitar riffs and powerful melodies! For fans of Bloodgood, Stryper, Saint, TNT, Quiet Riot, Warrant, and Scorpions!
