One of our favorite bands, Five Finger Death Punch have released their new video for their cover of “House of the Rising Sun”. It is awesome and one thing is for sure,, when 5FDP do something, they always do it with a 150% passion. One of the reasons, I love this band so much. The Mad Max style video was filmed in the high deserts of Nevada and was directed by the band’s guitarist Zoltan Bathory in conjunction with Thought Pirates Film’s Brian Neal.  Zoltan explains,   “The song’s lyrics are about gambling and drinking and we wanted to recreate those gun swinging outlaw poker scenes familiar from classic western movies, however I just couldn’t see us riding horses in the video so we shifted eras and went for a Mad Max-like post apocalyptic vibe with the cars and the bikes we ride anyway. We didn’t want any performance footage; the plan was to make the song sort of a soundtrack to a short story.”



Five Finger Death Punch have had great success with their two-part masterwork, THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL ─ VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2.  In addition, they have a busy summer as they will be performing at all major North American rock festivals this summer (dates below) and are nominated for 6 Revolver Golden Gods (in the following categories: Album of the Year, Best Vocalist, Best Guitarist(s), Best Bassist, Song of the Year and Most Dedicated Fans). The award show is set for April 23rd in Los Angeles.  Stay tuned for our Revolver Golden Gods Five Finger Death Punch Recipes.

One of our highlights last year was their performance at Aftershock in Sacramento. These guys came out with adrenaline running through their veins and they did not let up on their fierce energy. The crowd was intense and Ivan had control of them from the front of the pit to the very back of the crowd. His magnetic drew them all in as they were then treated to the spectacular guitar shredding by Jason Hook and Zoltan Bathory. But then you couldn’t help but watch the beard, the man himself, Chris Kael, bassist extraordinaire. Then you couldn’t help but look back and see the ever smiling Jeremy Spencer who just KICKS ASS on the drums and doesn’t miss a beat. He is always so damn happy and looks like he is having a hell of a time, they all do. These guys truly do perform for their fans and music is in their blood.   You can check a tribute video from Rockin Ryan featuring the photos from their Aftershock set:
