℗ 2020 Five Finger Death Punch, under exclusive license to Better Noise Music
Five finger death punch was the metal band that got me into metal. When I discovered Way of the fist, I knew right then and there, I was a knucklehead. Although Five finger’s progression and success has been musically disappointing to me, I am happy they are still going. This band was a huge part of my life during a difficult time and I will forever be a knucklehead.
Just when you think they can’t get any worse...they do This album is pathetic. Ivan hasn’t put any real effort into anything in probably 10 years. Zoltan is trying his best, but the rest of the band is sounding tired and worn out... Maybe they need to look into a major overhaul and retool of the rhythm sections of the band, I know they haven’t had the best ability to keep members, but the current lineup just sounds like they’re trying to mimic the sound of an album from 5 years ago....over....and over...and over again I liked the first few albums decently enough, but now....no....just no....stop forcing half baked (and lazy) covers down our throats and try to find that spark again.
Great album. My only complaint is that the drum recording could be greatly improved. This style of music needs loud heavy hitting kick drums. It’s just not there. It is there on their previous albums though.
I have never been disappointed by one single song by FFDP, and this album has met all my expectations. Deep, and impactful lyrics across the board. Thank you Ivan for sharing your journey
Let’s be honest, the last two albums were a total disappointment and we all know that FFDP are capable of so much more. This album proves that they indeed are. From the vocalists of Ivan to the better sounding songs, this album got FFDP back on their feet and better than ever!! Rock on!!! 🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾
I've bought all 8 of their albums and I have yet to be disappointed by them. I love FFDP so much, they have helped me get through rough patches in life, especially in recent months with quarantine.
I loved Got Your Six, but now with this album I’ve realized that’s about all I liked from them, they have good songs scattered around but those are mostly calmer songs, which is fine, it’s just they’ve lost that aggressive and powerful feel, Making Monsters was a big miss for me. Where’s the savagery of War is the Answer? Except that song was just vulgar for the sake of being vulgar. If you’re wanting heavy stuff, this isn’t for you, if you want more casual rock, this might be for you.
Most tracks have the same formula of simple drum beat and plain guitar riffs followed with a chorus near the end of each track that is only vocals. The album is way too repetitive. The best tracks are the bonus tracks. “A little bit off” has a “War is the Answer” vibe, but doesn’t save this album. Definitely could have done better.
Just keep the music coming, and to hell with the haters!!! Have every album and Ivan sings to my rage and his voice keeps my hate warm! Hook melts away the pain with his riffs and Zoltan,and Kaelround out the sound. and Jeremy lays down the beat to get me ready to deal my day with 10 knuckles!!!!
I love there new cd so much it get through my bad days every time I listen to five figures death punch I now ever words in the song I sing all the song all the time every day all the time I love see five figures death punch live it the best time of your life to go see then live you will have the best time of your and the music is the to 100% buy all the song of this cd right now you will have fun with it now
As a esteemed person that had heard every single one of their songs thus far, this album is awesome! Ivan's vocals are supreme! The calmer songs are good too! Don't listen to the people that tell you it sounds the same! It sounds awesome!
I don’t know what you critics are listening to but you obviously didn’t hear what I heard! Ivan is BACK! The entire album is AWESOME! Way heavier than recent releases. Thank you Ivan Moody and FFDP! AWESOME
I’ve loved 5FDP for years. Excited as always to see a new album and couldn’t purchase/download it fast enough. I listened to the whole thing in one swoop, and am left wondering what happened to the band I love? None of the songs were catchy or memorable. Just meh. Won’t bother listening to it again, I felt it was that bad. Hoping the next will be better.
I’m a huge FFDP fan and I think this is some of their best work. Takes me back to American Capitalist and some of their old stuff. I’m so happy for Ivan’s recovery and keep rocking boys!🤘
Fantastic job, every song is awesome. They go farther on this album, there in there best on this one. By far the best album for rock and rollers everywhere...Keep rocking brothers and sisters.. hell yeah..
I’m not here to defend anyone or bash anyone just to give my opinion ... I think it’s an excellent album. Five Finger has a certain sound to them that makes them unique .... I say stick to what works ... You know the old saying — it it ain’t broke... Don’t fix that motherfu$&er... FFDP Keep doing what you do !!
Will be a fan today tomorrow and after death I heard every song that they put out I blast every crazy song out load when I take my daily walks on my little speaker so the world can here this band.
I can’t stop listening to this album over and over! Such a good album! I don’t care what all the haters say or anyone!! Won’t stop supporting FFDP my favorite band!! Keep it going FFDP don’t listen to all these haters that thinks all the song sound the same they don’t!! You guys keep doing what your doing!! 😊😊
I have been to 2 of their concerts already and these guys keep rocking on like no other band has in a long time. Can’t wait for this album to drop and I have every one released to this date. Please come back to the Mathew Knight Arena in Eugene Or and I will go again. 5FDP till I die. I just finished listening to the whole album today and I can’t believe how these guys just keep going. Once again this band is awesome and enough great praise can’t be said about them. (5FDPTID)
Words cannot express how much time and effort these guys put into making this album. Absolutely magnificent from start to finish especially with with tracks such as Full Circle, A Little Bit Off, Scar Tissue, Brighter Side of Grey, and my personal favorite Death Punch Therapy. So far 2020 is off to a rockin start from Breaking Benjamin’s Aurora to this. Trivium, In This Moment, Lamb of God, and Nightwish you’re up 😎🔥🤘🏾
It’s not as good as there other recorders they have released kinda of a let down to be honest. Doesn’t have the Death Punch song/beat. Hopefully The next one they produce will have it again.
Ffdp is literally one of my favorite bands. I honesty don’t see why people are complaining about their music saying that it’s the same over and over again. There are some other metal/rock bands that has albums that sound the same too but never get music shamed. I love their music!
I, personally, love it. There are some thick-headed people in the world that will hate on any song that is made by them (and that goes for all bands, as well... always those people that prefer to hate).... rating albums prior to their release shouldn't be allowed, for this specific reason... all of the negative reviews are from December, when the pre-order was originally released... all of the more recent reviews are all positive... I'm a fan of this album!
Whole album nice and diverse reflecting the talent of the band (as other albums have as well). Couple songs will easily chart and with opinion “A Little Off” is a top performer because of how it speaks to the heart of many. “Living The Dream” is another...
