I'm a HARDCORE Knucklehead! Always have been! Since Day 1, once I heard "Way of the Fist", it was a done deal! The whole crew has done it again. Reaffirming my obsession. I never understood how zealot like people were over "Rush" or "Metallica". Now I understand. Their New Album "Got Your 6" is AMAZING!
I haven't been able to listen to anything else! Aside from looking like my illegitimate twin Brother, Ivan Moody Banshees out some hard core screams and Melodies! A perfect blend of talent and rage. Lyrically the songs on the new album carry some really heavy messages, as do all of 5FDP's songs. That's what I think I like the most about them. Yes, it's Heavy Metal, but it's musically and mathematically sound paired up with AMAZING poetry. The music flows very well, and makes me want to kick a jihadist in the face!
Hook and Zoltan shred crazy awesome licks. Once their "Hooks" get into you, your done. (Sorry Jason. Bad pun.) Jeremy Spencer's drumming is phenomenal. Like a War Drum, his playing gets you pumped up and ready for WAR. The Bass lines by Chris Kael tie it all together, making the whole mission a success.
Here is what Ivan and Guitarist Zoltan had to say about the new album: (From 5FDP Website)
ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM
“If someone asked me to sum up who and what Five Finger Death Punch is, I would tell them everything they need to know is on this new record. Hands down, "Got Your Six" is our best one yet… As for the first single, everybody is Jekyll and Hyde. There are multiple personalities to every human being, and no matter how civilized and sophisticated you think you are, if you dare to look at yourself very, very closely, you’ll see… somewhere deep down… there is a demon inside. Your circumstances may not have provoked it yet but trust me, it’s there…”
“The verses [in "Jekyll & Hyde"] are actual unaltered voicemails from Ivan. We have an ever-growing collection of these 4:00am messages Ivan usually bombards us with, and Jason had this idea to copy them to a hard drive, then literally wrote the song around them… what you hear is the actual voicemail”
I tried linking videos from Youtube for the new Jams, but VEVO blocked them. I don't get it. I'm pimping their Sh*t. Guess they aren't happy with the MILLIONs of dollars they're making from YouTube. The Album is still Boss though.
