Back for battle, heavy metal militants Five Finger Death Punch return with their new album Got Your Six from the independent Prospect Park record label.
Selling roughly 119,000 units, Got Your Six debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 charts this past week, making it the group’s third album to reach no. 2, since the release of The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell anthology in 2013. It also towered to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock, Hard Rock, Independent Album, and Digital Album Sales charts.
Somewhere between a soldier’s worst nightmare and the perfect soundtrack for an afternoon binge playing Call of Duty on your PlayStation, Got Your Six, is an action-packed thrill-ride from start to finish.
Five Finger Death Punch speak to the “demon inside” today’s society with their first single “Jekyll and Hyde,” a thrash heavy track about the existential struggle between good and evil.
Lead guitarist Jason Hook told Billboard.com, that “Jekyll and Hyde” was inspired by a voicemail that singer Ivan Moody left on his machine.
“So every once in a while, I’d wake up in the morning and there’d be two messages from Ivan, and I’d hear these song ideas he would just leave on my voicemail,” Hook said. “So ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ ended up being one of those ideas and we were looking for another song to record and I was going through these voicemails hoping something that would pique my interest and that was one of his and I went, ‘Wow. That’s really cool.'”
5FDP singer Ivan Moody showcases his vocal talents throughout the album. Going from the guttural growls of modern metal, Moody taps into the sounds of early 2000s hard rock groups such as Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace, with the anthemic rock song “Ain’t My Last Dance,” and the band’s second single, “Hell To Pay.”
