Five Finger Death Punch played a sold out show at the Fox Theatre on Saturday night. Sharing the stage with headliners Godsmack and special guests Drowning Pool, they brought their metal A-game to the forefront. This is a band that in a short period of time has risen from the metal underground and is quickly becoming a lethal force of musical mayhem. They're still quite an underrated band, but as they tour and play some of the biggest and best rock and metal festivals they're shredding their way to success.
Five Finger Death Punch's live show is high energy with intense drums and guitar, blasts of smoke, laser lights, and a taste of red hot metal. They opened up with the song "Burn It Down," the lights painting the stage in red and yellow as lead singer Ivan Moody stormed the masses with his in your face vocal dominance. Adding quite the wicked accent as a centerpiece on stage is their one of a kind stainless steel microphone stand. It features a gothic design with a skull attached to a spinal cord, grenades at the hip bone area, and a swirled pile of bullets at the base. Fellow band members that complete the Death Punch camp are Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook on guitars, Matt Snell on bass, and Jeremy Spencer on drums. They played a total of eight songs and after the third song "Hard To See," Spencer rocked the house with a heavy drum solo. With two albums under their belt; The Way of The Fist and War is the Answer, this is a band that is blazing the steel towards metal greatness.
