Biography

In 2009 Five Finger Death Punch were forced to cancel their maiden GMM show at the eleventh hour but their GMM2015 set was well worth the wait. One of the main exponents of ‘American’ metal, 5FDP are known for their brutally honest and often introspective lyrics and they’re a popular favourite among the United States Armed Forces. Both volumes of ‘The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell’ (2013) peaked at N° 2 on the Billboard 200 and follow-up ‘Got Your Six’ (2015) continues in the same vein. Their music references a variety of genres including nu metal, hardcore and heavy metal, and while they have their critics, millions find their mix of melody, groove and outright heaviness irresistible. The band consider their latest long player ‘F8’ (2020) as a rebirth of sorts. It is also the first with new drummer Charlie Engen and the last with guitarist Jason Hook. While it’s undeniably their heaviest album to date 5FDP have no reason to stray too far outside their long-time blueprint of polished heavy metal that large arenas can scream along to. (#GMM22)
