Five Finger Death Punch October 16th at the Fox Theatre
Five Finger Death Punch is a heavy metal band that takes their namesake from the "Dim Mak" technique. In essence the name means The Death Touch and it has been used throughout classic Hong Kong Kung-Fu cinema. The name is not as flowery in wording as the "Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique," used in the Kill Bill series. But metal has never been about flowers. Unless perhaps, they're poisoned or sharp like a razor that can be used to draw blood or induce a state of darkened existence.
This is a band that is in your face hard metal, but they don't leave out the melodic side either. Their music breathes with a life of its own, it finds a symmetry that balances peaks of chaos in heavy guitar riffs and solos. Their lyrics dig deep into a state of mind, and the bass and drums meld and shape the expanding Juggernaut that this band has become in just five years. With currently two albums under their belt; The Way Of The Fist and War Is The Answer, this is a band that emerged from the metal underground and has become a force to be reckoned with. They continue to grow in their instrumental and lyrical maturity and have brought along with them an extremely loyal fanbase that continues to grow.
Five Finger Death Punch will be sharing the stage at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, October 16th with headliners Godsmack and special guests Drowning Pool. This is a line-up of hard rock and metal that promises to shake you with a full throttle assault of intense musical proportions.
