The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Band of Skulls

Five Finger Death Punch’s second album improves on the band’s first release by doing some things differently… just not drastically different. Really this is the album that follows a hit single from a metal band. Some catchy stuff (“Hard to See”), typical metal songs that are basically what the band formed to do (like 70% of the record) and then a monster ballad (“Far From Home.”) So while it’s predictable, it’s enjoyable and “Far From Home” actually has some big single potential. Great band, decent release; hopefully Five Finger Death Punch keep releasing good stuff.
