Fighter V – Fighter

Label: Rock Attack

Release date: October 18th, 2019


The 80’s were THE era when stadium rock bands like WHITESNAKE, DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI ruled the scene, the rock clubs, MTV & the airwaves. With a bit of a surprise, FIGHTER V from Switzerland out of the blue now manage to step into these big shoes with their debut album entitled “Fighter”. Competently produced by H.E.A.T. keyboardist Jona Tee, the Swiss’ quintet’s sound can be described as massively keyboard-driven melodic rock/ hairspray rock with brilliant hooks, catchy melodies and fine song-writing. Tracks like the opener and single “Dangerous” (better than anything than BON JOVI have come up with since almost 30 years), “Heat Of The City”, “Can’t Stop The Rock” and and the more rocky piano-driven “Turn It Up” are real gems. Singer Dave Niederberger shines with a powerful voice – located somewhere near Jon Bon Jovi, Paul Laine, Ted Poley and the young Darren Wharton at times.    

A highly recommend release if you like any of the aforementioned artists and one that will straight away take you back into the glorious 80’s. Hot contender for the “melodic rock album of the year”.
