The multi-platinum selling Groove Metal Juggernaut Five Finger Death Punch bring the heat, and the feels with their seventh offering, And Justice For None.

With 13 songs in total, Ivan, Zoltan, Jason, Chris, and Spence, have created an album designed to raise hell and fill Arenas the world over. Thunderous beats, driving bass lines, hook after hook, and choruses your neighbours will be humming for days, give this album a very big, brash overwrought intensity.

The big moments here are Big, Fake, Top Of The World, Rock Bottom, and Bad Seed will have Knuckleheads raising their fists to the skies. While the more somber moments, I Refuse, When The Seasons Change, and Will The Sun Ever Rise will have the same ‘heads staring forlornly into their Beer.

Included in this package is the very 5FDP’d cover of Gone Away by The Offspring, which to date, has nine million plus streams on Spotify alone. Kenny Wayne Shepherd also gets some love, in the form of a very faithful interpretation of the brilliant, Blue on Black, that leads nicely into the heaving mid-paced rocker, Fire In The Hole.

Closing out the album is the most 5FDP of 5FDP songs, Save Your Breath, a fist shaking, lung burner that has everything you’ve come to expect… and more, that makes you clench your fist so much tighter.  While at the other end of the scale,  Sham-Pain, is just… ShamPainFul.

With the words ‘Rock Is Dead’ being trolled out left and right, Five Finger Death Punch are fighting the good fight and punching their way through the dirge to bring Rock, back to the front.
