A few days ago I was checking out my tweets from earlier in the day and noticed some discussion on music between two people that I follow. Mike and Hayward were were talking music and somewhere along the lines a mention of the band 5 Finger Death Punch was made.
At one point in time I was very into metal. I attended three Ozzfests and numerous local shows which kept me fairly open to new bands. Somewhere along the lines I missed an Ozzfest show and slowly fell out of the loop as far as new music is concerned.
Without being up to date on the new music coming out, I stuck to what I knew from the past several years. On a whim I decided to look up the band and see what I have been missing as of late. After hearing a couple of songs via Youtube, I was compelled to pick up the album.
Its been a couple of days since getting a hold of the album and I’ve listened to it numerous times already. The music is crisp and flows very well from song to song. I’m not sure what I find more appealing, the instruments or the vocals. All in all I think that the total package is very catchy.
Since being sucked into this album, I’ve spoken to Mike a little via twitter and I have a whole list of new bands to check out. I’m looking forward to getting back into Metal, the same old stuff has been great over the past couple of years but was beginning to get stuffy.
