Five Finger Death Punch

This is one of those bands that those in the underground will treat with a healthy dose of skepticism, a band that seems to have some major money and some ready-made popularity behind it right from the start, without anyone really knowing how or why. Essentially, The Way Of The Fist is really nothing more than a post-nu-metal, groove-laden, slightly metalcore-tinged album, with plenty of hate-filled, immature lyrics, soulless riffing and songwriting, and a too-pristine production that effectively removes any real intensity from the songs. The whole affair has a processed, generic feel to it, as if this is what someone thinks underground metal is without knowing better. It seems unlikely that the initial buzz surrounding this band will carry them forward, but it's too soon to tell at this point.

Upcoming album: F8, release date February 28, 2020.
