Releasing their first album in 2007, Five Finger Death Punch - Zoltan Bathory, guitars; Ivan Moody, vocals; Jason Hook, guitars; Chris Kael, bass; Jeremy Spencer, drums - attained prominence at supersonic speed. The band's aggressive sound is best summed up by co-founder Bathory: "Plain and simple, we are a melodic heavy metal band that's walking the golden middle road between raw musical aggression and catchy melodies. We believe in old school songwriting with a new school sound. At the end of the day, it is still about the songs, and the connection you build between you and the fans.
