Five Finger Death Punch Sign To Firm Music

LA rockers, Five Finger Death Punch, have officially inked a deal with Firm Music, a branch of the highly successful entertainment talent management company, The Firm. The band will release their debut opus, THE WAY OF THE FIST worldwide on July 31, 2007.

THE WAY OF THE FIST was recorded at Next Level Studios by Stevo "Shotgun" Bruno (MOTLEY CRUE, PRONG) and at No Name Studios by Mikey Sarkisyan (SPINESHANK) with mixing and mastering duties being handled by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).

The label are excited about the addition of these metal-vets to their roster. Deb Klein, GM for Firm Music says about the signing, “We were so excited to bring FFDP into our fold. We believe that this band’s material and live show speak volumes. With our company’s history in the metal world coupled with this bands mastery of the genre we are poised for world domination!”

Euro-Metal veteran and previous U.P.O. guitarist, Zoltan Bathory, was the architect of what has morphed into Five Finger Death Punch, recruiting standout studio Metal drummer, Jeremy Spencer to add his trademark ‘double-bass mayhem’ to the equation. Vocalist, Ivan Moody’s previous band, MOTOGRATER, had played to huge crowds on Ozzfest and beyond, while guitarist Darrell Roberts toured with metal legends W.A.S.P.. Matt Snell, bassist of acclaimed experimental outfits ANUBIS RISING and DEADSETT, completed the circle by lending his considerable fretboard mastery to the band’s music.
