I grew up in Staten Island,NY (where some of these guys are from) and first purchased this on vinyl at one of their local shows. White Lion was managed by the owners of the infamous rock club, L'Amours, and would play there every month. With so many glam and hair acts playing at the time, these guys stood out. They could sell out any New York rock club quicker than most national and signed bands. Although Pride was a bigger success and more polished, you need to pick up this cd to realize what an insane prodigy Vito Bratta was and how hard and raw the band really was. Check out the original version of Broken Heart and All the Fallen Men. White Lion's latter success overshadowed their true musical genius but Fight to Survive will always be a testament to one of the greatest rock bands to climb out of the New York jungle in the 80's.

A little F.Y.I.-- White Lion's famous rhythm section of Lomenzo and D'Angelo do not play on this cd. Staten Island local Nicky Capozzi plays drums and Felix Robinson, from the band Angel, plays bass.

Electra records signed the band, but refused to put out the album because it was too hard and heavy for the softer image they wanted them to have.

Formed in November 1982 by ex-Dreamer guitarist Vito Bratta and Mabel and Studs vocalist Mike Tramp, White Lion released their debut album Fight To Survive in 1984 in Germany. The band went through several line-up changes until they were fully established. First, bassist Felix Robinson was replaced by Dave Spitz (Americade) and drummer Nicky Capozzi by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo. It is bassist Dave Spitz that appeared in the band's first video "Broken Heart" before he went to join Heavy Metal legends Black Sabbath. Enter James Lomenzo (ex-Rondinelli) to fill in his shoes and the final line-up of White Lion was completed. The album got released in Japan through Victor Records and was highly successful. Shortly after the band landed a part in the Tom Hanks movie "The Money Pit" but this didn't really bring them in the spotlight like they had hoped. In addition to this their American label Elektra dropped them out of the blue and all of a sudden here was a band that had no contract and support Stateside. Unfortunately it would take over 3 years till they could break in the USA with their multi-platinum record Pride in 1987.
Fight To Survive was produced by German producer Peter Hauke who was originally also supposed to produce Pride and Big Game but somehow producer Michael Wagener handled the duties on the band's later releases. Because of the difference of producers and the mix, FTS sounds rather raw and heavy. Very heavy and in your face kind of 80's metal with crushing riffs from Vito Bratta and thoughtful lyrics from Mike Tramp. With the exception of perhaps only two songs ("Where Do We Run" and "Kid of 1,000 Faces") this is a typical heavy metal album .

It's a shame that White Lion's debut album is so hard to find, because it may well be their best release. Fight to Survive didn't make much of a splash when it was released in 1984. It wasn't until 3 years later that their second album, Pride, brought them the attention they deserved.

Fight to Survive is a solid album and a great example of the kind of melodic hard rock/heavy metal that was so powerful in the mid to late 1980's. It features the single Broken Heart, which was re-recorded for White Lion's final album Mane Attraction. Broken Heart is probably my favorite White Lion song. Other standout tracks include the title track and El Salvador. Singer Mike Tramp and guitarist Vito Bratta worked quite well together on this album, and managed to record some very melodic songs with great guitar hooks and smart lyrics. Like later releases, which always had at least one song that just didn't seem to fit (Dirty Woman from Big Game is a good example); Fight to Survive's only dud is the song Kid of 1000 Faces. That one song aside, I give White Lion's debut album a very high rating.

This is a must-have album for all White Lion fans, as well as fans of the whole 80's hard rock/hair metal scene. It's one of those albums that totally captures the spirit of that era.

NOTE: For the longest time, the only way to get this great album was to buy an expensive Japanese import. Fortunately Fight to Survive was reissued by AOR Heaven in 2005.

This is the debut album by renowned American glam metal band "White Lion". Originally released in 1984 the recording process of this album was financed by "Electra Records", a company which at the time had one power seller under the name of "Motley Crue". However just when the album was completed "Electra" dropped the band replacing them with an up and coming quartet known as "Dokken". Never the less "JVC" showed great interest in White Lion and the album was released in Japan.
Musically this album goes way beyond the glam metal sound of its successor "Pride". This is hard rock or classic metal as some would like to refer to; No "hair metal" hits here, rather solid rock hymns. Mike Tramp's music pays a tribute to the modern urban life with songs such as "In the City" and the title track. In addition, tunes such as "Cherokee" and "All the fallen men" stand as homage to the predecessors and heroes of the American nation.

Nothing glamorous, nothing pretentious here; overall a very dark, often mid tempo album whose choruses deliver the pain, agony and self examination of the average modern citizen.
Weather you prefer "poser rock" or straight forward "heavy metal" you can invest confidently on this release; this could possibly be the most substantial American hard rock album of the 80s.

It is quite ironic the least successful release in White Lion's multi-platinum history stands out as their most diachronic and inspirational album.
