Metal Hammer (UK)



Such were the words plastered over Metal Hammer when we first put Five Finger Death Punch on our cover just a little under 10 years ago. Even way back then it was clear that they were a band destined for huge things, and as this decade comes to a close, they lived up to those expectatio­ns and then some. Chances are you’ll certainly have an opinion on this most combustibl­e of bands by now, but the fact is that no one has smashed through metal’s glass ceiling in recent times like they have: loudly, proudly and with a steadfast refusal to compromise on a single, goddamn motherfuck­ing thing.

As they gear up for a seriously heavyweigh­t tour with Megadeth and prepare to step into a bold new era, we catch up with the heavy metal juggernaut to find out why their next chapter might surprise you just a little bit more than you imagine.

Want more this issue? How about a fascinatin­g look inside Slayer’s very first conquest of the UK, or a celebratio­n of 30 years of Sepultura’s classic Beneath

The Remains? Throw in everything from Diamond Head and Amon Amarth to Schammasch and Dawn Ray’d and you’ve got a veritable smorgasbor­d of heavy to feast on. Enjoy, and…
