This band is growing and growing fast, With good reason. After a brief conversation with lead singer Ivan after there performance at the family values show in Hartford Ct. About the late “James Lynn Strait” may he rest in peace. I respected him like a brother, To come out and talk with fans like he does. The music is just pure metal and so much talent in the band. I couldn’t wait for the CD to come out I went and bought it the day it came out. And been listening to it since, The band is well put together the production quality is amazing. There is not one song on the CD that you can label your favorite its just not fair to the album. All the songs are just amazing this is just simply one of the best albums to come out in 07. So do your self a favor and buy it, And if you get the chance see them live do it you will not regret it. The way of the fist is exactly what the title says, It will make you want to clench your fists and get in the pit.
With a voice sometimes reminiscent of tool, and a nice chunk in the music, this band is pretty killer. I’m not a chick that goes for pounding double bass all the time and guitars so fast that you can’t tell what chords are what. If this stuff is thrash/speed metal whatever you wanna call it, I like it! No wimpy songs here, nice melodies with a toughness to them.
This is a record for all of those long standing fans of bands like Pantera that are wondering when the next great metal act might be. Well, wait no longer go out and buy Five Finger Death Punch as you will be banging your head like you used to…
A band that lives up to it’s name? Five Finger Death Punch’s music sure does a swift job of living up to such a bold statement. Clutching the listener upon impact, the band’s proper debut, “The Way Of The Fist,” is a rollercoaster of a metal album that will appeal not only to the most cynical of metal-heads, but those who don’t primarily pay attention to the genre as well. It’s got something for everyone. Thanks to frontman Ivan Moody, who some may remember from a little band by the name of Motograter, we are treated to a voice in the genre that can pull off a limitless range of styles and push it forward with passion. Backing him up are an odd assortment of co-horts; hailing from the post-grunge band U.P.O., we have Zoltan Bathory on guitars, with bassist Matt Snell (formerly of Deadsett) and ex-W.A.S.P. (yes, you heard me, W.A.S.P.!) members Darrell Roberts (guitar) and Jeremy Spencer (drums) rounding out the line-up. Truly, it is their diverse backgrounds that come together to bring such a rich and unique sound. Not to mention that each member is in top form and puts on one tight performance. You can listen to this ten track CD thoroughly and everything blends seamlessly without letting up for a moment. To be honest, the only flaws are that they don’t show off just how diverse they can be (first single “The Bleeding” stands alone) and in the end, the album is just too brief. Regardless, Five Finger Death Punch’s sound is one that actually sounds modern, especially when placed in a wasteland where every other metal band emerging sounds alike. “The Way Of The Fist” is a satisfyingly addictive metal album that just about anyone can appreciate.
