Everyone has two choices—evolve or die.
It's that simple, and that maxim holds true for every species. Either you can change with the tides or get swept away in their wake. Either you can grow or you can stagnate. Either you can stand out or simply be another face in the crowd. With their third album, American Capitalist [Prospect Park], Five Finger Death Punch—Ivan Moody ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Metal that Will Become A Classic 5 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a middle-aged wolf, who has been through the rise of Metallica in the 1980s, along with thrash and speed metal in the UK, US, and Germany. 5FDP came to my attention as an amazon recommendation. I usually shy away from new metal bands because I am set in my metal ways, I suppose. But I checked the band on You Tube and was impressed enough to buy the first two albums of this band: 'The Way of the Fist' and 'War Is the Answer'. That was three weeks ago. Since then I haven't stopped playing these albums. This is quite unusual for me, set in my ways as I am, and having received some other 10 albums in the meantime, they had some tough competition. But they won it hands down. As somebody else has written, they have become my new obsession as well.

The more I listen to them the more I hear what I can only call the sound of contemporary metal. I can hear traces of Metallica, Pantera, even Iron Maiden ... which means that they have a lineage, they have absorbed the sound of metal of the past 3 decades ... and yet they have managed to find a sound that is their 'own'. Dare I say it, there even is a hint of 'pop' (!?!?) in this sound. This is a thrash sound, all right, but there is this strange ingredient that breathes fresh air and one which can appeal to a wider audience. This is in part due to the melodic aspects and catchy rhythms/riffs, and in part to Ghost's voice which alternates between a thrash metal voice and a more straight-forward singing voice.

Yes, this is the sound of contemporary metal. There is no revolution here, no breaking of forms that will create a new metal - hence the immediate appeal that 5FDP seem to have generated. But they have assimilated metal sounds from the past 3 decades in a very interesting and addictive way. Whatever you do, hear them!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars FFDP Do it again 23 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Usually after a band have a very popular debut cd their second foray tends to be a little bit of a let down. Five Finger Death Punch turn that assumption upside down. Not only is War is the answer as good as, The Way of The Fist, arguably a couple of the tracks are even better.

Normally I don't bother with special editions. I prefer the purity of just the cd but I love Five Finger Death Punch so much I figured what the hell. The main chunk on the extra dvd is some live footage of the band both on and off screen and a montage of fans of the band showing off their FFDP tattoos or their photos of themselves or with various band members. Some of the band footage was a little bit ropey and at one point it changes style altogether when it has a performance of theirs at Download festival last year. However it was interesting to see the band and their antics. I also found the fan stuff to be fascinating.

On balance I would say it is worth paying the little bit extra to get the special edition of War is the Answer. I've certainly been telling my friends about it, hoping to get them into FFDP. Hope you enjoy it as much as I am :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Contender for Album of the Year 30 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
I don't need to write an in-depth review on this album - look at the other reviews and see why. This is a better album than their debut - which was exceptional. It sounds technically better, and vocally it is one of the best albums I have heard for a long time - Ivan Moody is sublime on this album, using far more clean vocals than he did on the debut, but even the 'gruff' vocals are excellent, and you can understand what he is saying without looking at the lyric booklet!

Stand out songs? You decide! Every one is brlliant, but my favorites are 'Hard to See', 'No One Gets Left Behind' (listen to the lyrics - total dig at government), 'Far From Home', and the stand out track (for me) 'Walk Away'.

With a bit of commercial radio airplay, this band could be huge - I am talking Linkin Park success here. It's just a shame the UK public seem to be obsessed with listening to awful reality stars.

A highly recommended album, and a strong contender for album of the year - but some stiff competition against Megadeth's 'Endgame' and Alice in Chains' 'Black Give Way to Blue', but this does tell you how good this album really is. 5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing Old Disgracefully 24 Sep 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
An old Wolf should know better I hear you say
and you are very probably right in every respect.

This album came home from school today with Scatty
and Gritz (the cubs). They're going through a
somewhat edgy early-adolescent phase at the moment.
You know how it is...a bit intense, a tad garrulous
and given to a highly evolved and continually
changing dress sense. It's hard for parents to keep
up sometimes however young in spirit we try to be !

Five Finger Death Punch are a new band to me.
The name troubled me more than a little but having
listened to their new album 'War Is The Answer' I
have reassured myself that it is very likely that they
all have Mothers to whom they show love and kindness.

Despite the intense deluge of sound they create it is also
abundantly evident that they possess musical intelligence
and an ear for a good tune. A good kind of dark energy.

Singer Ian Moody comes on (full on !) like the Devil incarnate.
His roaring performance of 'Falling In Hate' made flakes of
paint flutter down from the ceiling in Mrs Wolf's kitchen
(she was not very impressed).
S & G, however, stormed and stomped around the Cave playing
air-guitar with wild abandon ( a desired effect I assume).

Mr Hook (guitar), Mr Bathory (guitar), Mr Snell (bass) and
Mr Spencer (drums), whip up a real storm of sound around their
leader but it is never less than well-judged and technically
proficient. Listen to the beautifully structured guitar solo on
'Walk Away' for clear evidence of their musicality.

Compositional structure is both satisfyingly complex ('Canto 34')
and rhythmically sound ('Dying Breed' and 'Bulletproof').
