Five Finger Death Punch - The Way Of The Fist
The Firm Music
If you're a fan of the Kill Bill movies, you are very familiar with the Five Finger Death Punch. That's where this new band got their name, and you may be familiar with some of their members as well. Vocalist Ivan Moody used to be in Motograter, and other members have been in or toured with bands such as W.A.S.P., Anubis Rising and U.P.O.

Five Finger Death Punch's debut CD is The Way Of The Fist, an appropriate title for the band's aural assault. There are no fancy bells and whistles, just straight ahead, in your face metal with thick riffs, a pummeling rhythm section, and some nice guitar solos. The songs are heavy, but infused with a lot of melody and are fit for mass consumption.

The vocals of Moody range from angry thrash style yells to surprisingly smooth melodic vocals. This is musical ground that has been well traveled, but Five Finger Death Punch's musicianship and ferocity along with their melodic sensibility makes this a rock solid debut. You can also check them out this summer on the Family Values Tour.
