Five Finger Death Punch

Okay. It took me a while to get back to blogging about music. I know, I know. Thankfully, I have been falling in love with a ton more bands lately. So many different bands I can't even begin to start writing them all down. I will start blogging about each one though -- slowly. .

Five Finger Death Punch (also initialized as 5FDP) is an American heavy metal band from LA. I lived out there for about 3 years and still want to move back eventually. They formed in 2005, the group's name is derived from classic oriental martial arts cinema. The band originally consisted of vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarist Zoltan Bathory, guitarist Caleb Bingham, bassist Matt Snell and drummer Jeremy Spencer. Bingham was replaced by guitarist Darrell Roberts in 2006, who was then replaced by Jason Hook in 2009. Bassist Matt Snell departed from the band in 2010 and was replaced by Chris Kael in 2011. Their debut album The Way of the Fist was released in 2007.

Following its release the band began achieving success rapidly. The 2009 follow-up album "War Is the Answer" further increased their popularity. This album blows my mind. Ivan Moody's voice is one of the best rock voices I've heard in a very long time. This song off their newest album, "American Capitalist" has got to be my favorite song from the band. Even though I love every one of their songs produced. I do have some favorites and here is one of them. This is the official video! Peace.
