“ We still feel like a kids in the candy store, we all saw each other kicking ass in other bands thinking ‘holy shit”… And now we’re all here and we’re kicking ass together… Very proud of the record… and can’t wait to turn those amps to 11… “ (5FDP)
It doesn’t happen every day that a practically new band gets to play big shows right out of the gate, but there is a reason why 5FDP had street credit from the first day it popped up on the horizon…
Every member of the Death Punch earned their black belts in metal, and their individual stories are nothing short of amazing. Yet, It’s still a paramount task to write a biography about a band that’s very essence is “walking the walk” instead of “talking the talk”.
Five Finger Death Punch would rather leave “blowing their own horn” to the angels of the apocalypse – but - provide the soundtrack for the celestial event.
Since the conception of the band, 5FDP just did what had to be done, and has done it in a rapid pace. They have pulled together a world class production team: Including Stevo Shotgun Bruno – (Motley, Crue, Prong) Mike Sharkysian (Spineshank) and Logan Mader (Machine Head, Soulfly) for recording their first album “The Way Of The Fist”.
According to the diehard fans they rapidly acquired, “Five Finger Death Punch” turned out to be a fairly descriptive name regarding the band’s iron fisted delivery of their vision. In the overwhelming response, the phrase that echoed the most, was “True Metal” – something the band ended up picking up as a short description of their music.
5FDP seems to hit a chord that is sorely lacking in today’s musical climate. Their melodic aggression, the fast technical riffage contrasted by big epic pieces - invoke the spirit of the glory days of metal. However, the down tuned subsonic assault definitely reminds us we’re in the 21st century.
The band perfected today’s sound but fused it with yesterday’s songwriting values.
The Way Of The Fist is due to drop in the first half of 2007.
It was important that everyone involved at any stage of this recording was a diehard metal head.
