Metal/thrash act Five Finger Death Punch comes out of sunny California and gives us their wishy-washy debut, The Way of the Fist. The instrumentation on the album is very solid. It's nothing amazing or mind-blowing, and it's certainly not anything you haven't heard before, but what they do, they .

In conclusion, FFDP aren't the "next big thing" in metal, even though they claim to be allied with "true metal," but that doesn't mean they don't have talent. They actually have a lot of talent, but they don't use it in the right way, and when hearing the lyrics, they come off as immature and it's hard to take them seriously. That doesn't mean this band is a total waste -- people should definitely give them a listen, but what you will be hearing is slightly above average thrash metal/metalcore with a lead singer who sounds like he's 14. Shit, no wonder they were on the Family Values Tour...
