EDITORS’ NOTES

Five Finger Death Punch's seventh album is a triumphant return of sorts: It comes off a rocky period in which it looked like the band might split up—maybe even on stage. Vocalist Ivan Moody seems to address his public meltdowns defiantly over the meaty power grooves of leadoff track “Trouble” and with humor on the catchy rap-rock kiss-off “Sham Pain.” The tone shifts considerably with the uplifting acoustic ballad “When the Seasons Change” and an emotional cover of The Offspring’s 1997 meditation in mourning, “Gone Away.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Let’s go back 30 years...

Ok, first, let me get this out. “Decade of Destruction” is a GREATEST HITS album. Which is an album dedicated to their GREATEST HITS. Which is music that was already released and was successful, hence the name; GREATEST HITS. So, on this album there is music they already recorded. Absolutely NO new music was supposed to be on a GREATEST HITS album. Due to legal issues, there was a release delay of this new album of about a year. So, they give you 2 brand new songs along with all of their other great songs, as a taste of their new stuff and album coming out. AND PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING?!?! I was so happy when they did that, since it had been so long since we had new music. Let’s go back 30 years... we have amazing bands like Ratt, Motley Crüe, KISS. You were lucky to get 10 songs on an album. Five Finger Death Punch, is giving you 16. They gave you 2 new songs 6 months early to hold everyone over due to the wait. And people are seeing it as lazy. Again, going back 30 years, a single album(10 songs)was like $16.00. Doing the math, this can easily be sold for over $20. But IT’S NOT. People really need to lose their sense of entitlement, and just enjoy the music.

Horrible

Why do people enjoy these cheesy lyrics and rehashed garbage? These guys had hope when I heard their first album. It’s just gotten worse and worse each album.

Nickelback fans consider this metal

Ffdp is just awful. Same lyrics and same guitar rhythms recycled with a huge steaming pile of crap on top.
