Review Summary: Whoa! FFDP stepped it up from a superb debut by creating a rock/metal grade-A album.
Dying Breed - Hard hitting metal, fast paced in your face great opening track for the album.
Hard To See - Great guitar riffs, very clean sound despite the hard rock sound, impressive and catchy.
(I'm impressed so far, let's keep it up)
Bullet Proof - Metal, just good ol metal.
No One Gets Left Behind - Politics + Ivan Moody = Awesome Metal Music
Crossing Over - Beautiful slower song for a nice break from an otherwise fast paced album so far.
(Extremely happy to see an acoustic song from these guys, no disappointments yet!!!)
Burn It Down - More growling metal music, great vocals, great guitar, everything is very tight.
Far From Home - The Bleeding of War Is The Answer, another beautiful acoustic song.
(Nice, another acoustic song, Five Finger Death Punch consists of angry violent metal masters)
Falling In Hate - Shows more anger from an angry person, yet another great metal song, I feel like I'm repeating myself.
My Own Hell - Different vocals, not all screaming, singing and screaming in an awesome chorus, very creative.
(The lyrics in this album are not intended for young children, in other words, they are awesomely violent)
Walk Away - Relatable lyrics create an endlessly replayable workout song, great vocals, awesome solo!
(The singing is impressive from Moody, considering he can scream like a pro in my opinion, I know someone's gonna freak out when they see that.)
Canto 34 - Freakin sick instrumental, didn't see it coming, very impressed, a fine example of the maturity shown in War Is The Answer.
Bad Company (Cover) - Heard this live a while back, loved it, prayed for a studio version, loved it more, must hear strictly for the Moody vocals. Masterpiece, genius cover choice.
(Yessssss, no matter what the next song sounds like, I know I'll love this album no matter what *sigh of relief*)
War Is The Answer - Angry metal, perfect closer, awesome lyrics.
Summary: Absolutely amazing. A must have for any fan of rock or metal. Ivan Moody impresses and improves. Guitar work is outstanding, the first metal band to actually create new sounding riffs. This is a classic metal cd from one of metal's best new bands. Five Finger Death Punch is here to stay!
