HARD TO SEE by Five Finger Death Punch


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 ...

Customer Reviews

If it sounds good to me, I like it.
Terrence Leonard
This is one of those albums that you love every single song on it, and, you listen to it all the way through every time you play a song...
This song would have fit well on their first album.

Zoltan Bathory formed 5FDP back in 2005 and who could have guessed the choice of band mates would have created a practically over night phenomena?!? We did, the fans of Motograter whom in which seen the sheer creativity that their one studio effort presented. It was only a matter of time before their albums went flying off shelves and The Way of the Fist did indeed surprise many at how well these overlooked musicians were backed by a die hard fan base.

The reason I love this band is due to the fact that they are to the point and in your face. They have a style that is catchy enough to bring in fans that might not prefer the Metal edge yet still heavy enough to keep the Metal Heads happy. WITA only defines that characteristic further, whether it be the dominating guitar riffing of 'Bulletproof' or the sheer emotion on 'Far From Home'. The range of tempo and song structure is far more varied then on the previous album and the slower tracks are a welcomed change.

I was expecting this album to not differ much from Way of the Fist but I was pleasantly surprised to hear the guys tapping into their creativity a bit more. 'Crossing Over' is a mid paced ballad showing some signs of heart felt lyrical content but later on the previously mentioned 'Far From Home' we get a very slow and fairly sad track that truly pulls at the heart. This is truly a band that we as the simple humans we are can relate to as they share their raw emotions with us and bleed it out for the world to hear.

I've been a fan of FFDP since I heard their 2006 debut, "The Way of the Fist". They proved to metal fans that there are musicians out there who still want to play heavy, use double-bass, include guitar solos, but not overdo it with math-metal, all over the place stuff. Yes, their music could be quite basic at times...but so is a lot of Metallica and AC/DC riffs also...the complexity of the music doesn't necessarily make it a good song. When I listen to an album, I like to hear diversity, anger, love, hate, war, peace...and everything in between...and that is what you get when you listen to Fiver Finger Death Punch's sophomore release, "War is the Answer". They really exceeded my expectations on this second album. The production is much better, the album art is fantastic...and most importantly, the music is composed much better this time around.

"Dying Breed" opens the album with a round-house kick to the teeth. Great double-bass from the ex-WASP drummer on this track, (and the rest of the album). The heavy, hard-hitting, verses of this song, lead to a great, melodic chorus (much like their first album's opener "Ashes") that leaves you craving for more. It than carries you into a more groovy approach in "Hard To See", which will kind of remind you of FFDP's single release, "Never Enough". This shows how much better of a vocalist he has become. "Bulletproof" is another number with angry lyrics and aggressive musicianship. This song would have fit well on their first album. We then go into, "No One Get's Left Behind"...a song about war, and couldn't have been said any better. The views placed in this song would remind you of what Ozzy said in the Sabbath classic, "War Pigs". Politicians start war for money, and our young American troops are dying, for little or no cause at all.

Five Finger Death Punch had a lot of hype going into this record. Could it somehow outdo its predecessor? Way of the Fist was just a nasty album from start to finish, and in my opinion, this album is nothing short of amazing. The opening track "Dying Breed" is just a sick album opener that punches you in the face with its brutal verses and melodic chorus. "Hard to See" is the first single off the album and when you hear how catchy it is, you'll know why it's a single. "Bulletproof" is possibly their best song on the album. It is just a brutal track with one of the best choruses these guys have written. "No One Gets Left Behind" is clearly a song for the troops. Once Ivan kicks in the second verse with "Play your war games with other peoples lives" you can just feel the anger in his voice. "Far From Home" is possibly the biggest surprise of the album. We know 5FDP is known for their melodic catchy choruses, but...just WOW. This song starts off acoustically and kicks in with distorted guitars and has a chorus to the song that can easily put this band on the map more than "The Bleeding" or "Never Enough" did. Another standout is "My Own Hell". Same format as the majority of their songs with the brutal verses kicking into a memorable catchy chorus. "Bad Company" was quite surprisingly a great cover. I tried to find some things wrong with this album, but quite frankly I can't find a lot wrong with it. The only complaint some people may have is that they have too many soft songs. There are 3 in total that are considered "soft" to me seeing as how there is no screaming and it's just straight singing from start to finish in those songs. Those songs being "Crossing Over", "Far From Home" and "Walk Away" However, there is nothing wrong with any of those songs.Read more ›

How about Anthrax suing them because "Hard to See" is 99% rip off of their classic "Only" off of "Sound of White Noise"?

I heard it as well. Great album. Better than the first and that is saying something since the debut was damn good itself.
