4.0 out of 5 stars Still I Find Salvation... September 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A band that lives up to it's name? Five Finger Death Punch's music sure does a swift job of living up to such a bold statement. Clutching the listener upon impact, the band's proper debut, "The Way Of The Fist," is a rollercoaster of a metal album that will appeal not only to the most cynical of metal-heads, but those who don't primarily pay attention to the genre as well. It's got something for everyone. Thanks to frontman Ivan Moody, who some may remember from a little band by the name of Motograter, we are treated to a voice in the genre that can pull off a limitless range of styles and push it forward with passion. Backing him up are an odd assortment of co-horts; hailing from the post-grunge band U.P.O., we have Zoltan Bathory on guitars, with bassist Matt Snell (formerly of Deadsett) and ex-W.A.S.P. (yes, you heard me, W.A.S.P.!) members Darrell Roberts (guitar) and Jeremy Spencer (drums) rounding out the line-up. Truly, it is their diverse backgrounds that come together to bring such a rich and unique sound. Not to mention that each member is in top form and puts on one tight performance. You can listen to this ten track CD thoroughly and everything blends seamlessly without letting up for a moment. To be honest, the only flaws are that they don't show off just how diverse they can be (first single "The Bleeding" stands alone) and in the end, the album is just too brief. Regardless, Five Finger Death Punch's sound is one that actually sounds modern, especially when placed in a wasteland where every other metal band emerging sounds alike. "The Way Of The Fist" is a satisfyingly addictive metal album that just about anyone can appreciate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, and melodic, Grindy vocals AND SMOOTH TOO! November 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
With a voice sometimes reminiscent of tool, and a nice chunk in the music, this band is pretty killer. I'm not a chick that goes for pounding double bass all the time and guitars so fast that you can't tell what chords are what. If this stuff is thrash/speed metal whatever you wanna call it, I like it! No wimpy songs here, nice melodies with a toughness to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best metal albums of 07 November 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This band is growing and growing fast, With good reason. After a brief conversation with lead singer Ivan after there performance at the family values show in Hartford Ct. About the late "James Lynn Strait" may he rest in peace. I respected him like a brother, To come out and talk with fans like he does. The music is just pure metal and so much talent in the band. I couldn't wait for the CD to come out I went and bought it the day it came out. And been listening to it since, The band is well put together the production quality is amazing. There is not one song on the CD that you can label your favorite its just not fair to the album. All the songs are just amazing this is just simply one of the best albums to come out in 07. So do your self a favor and buy it, And if you get the chance see them live do it you will not regret it. The way of the fist is exactly what the title says, It will make you want to clench your fists and get in the pit.

Already being a fan of the vocalist Ivan Moody's past projects Motograter, Black Blood Orchestra, and Ghost Machine I was very excited to hear this new album. I had already heard some of it because I saw them play their first live show in Los Angeles in 2006. After that I was already hooked. This album is what the current metal community needed. It brought a wake up call to all those who say that the new era of metal has been nothing good. Well it's time to put up or shut up because you've got Five Finger Death Punch coming for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great metal cd of 2007. July 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I here mix reviews of these guys on chat forums. I don't understand why? They have a great sound. Ivan Moody or "Ghost" as some of you may also know him as is a great vocalist. I like his schizophrenic singing. If you liked Motogrator and Ghost Machine then this definitely is a must have. They are on the Family Values Tour with Korn and Hell Yeah this year. Go and check them out!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Debut November 10, 2007
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
Let's get things straight, I don't like metalcore, its c***-tease metal. All the songs sound the same, start off heavy scream, scream, scream then have the obligatory breakdown where they sing. Ya get me worked up and moshing and then the singing comes and just sounds out of place, and I can't do anything with it. They only metalcore band I like a lot is Unearth.

Now I have two metalcore bands I like.

Getting into FFDP was pretty easy: I saw their name on the bill for the Family Values Tour and said "That is the most ridiculously awesome name!" and checked out them performing Salvation on YouTube and was hooked. I never heard anything from Motograter or Ghost Machine, so I wasn't even part of the Ivan Moody fan club until hearing this.

Ivan Moody is a big part of why FFDP works, the man can scream and grunt, and sing really well. His voice is completely void of that whiney emo tone that plagues a lot of singers in the metalcore business. The other aspect of this band that works is that they don't completely change the momentum of the song with the breakdowns; they go from hard head-banging riffs to more melodic work without a hitch and throw in guitar solos and other interesting elements with ease.

But the album has some elements that don't completely work. For one the song structure is pretty similar, scream the verses sing the chorus, repeat (except "The Bleeding" where they switch it). This method works flawlessly for the first 5 tracks in pure awesome metal goodness. We then hit "The Devil's Own" and we reach the first dud in the album. It's a personal pet peeve of mine hearing about people whine about mommy and daddy problems.
