Guitarist Zoltan Bathory of American hard rockers Five Finger Death Punch has posted the following comments online regarding the group's forthcoming new album "American Capitalist."

"This record crystallizes the sound of Death Punch. The band has really come into its own. Everyone contributed to the music, and this is what we are capable of as a unit. The overall message is to fight for your survival and success. You can be a zebra or join the lion pride. You have to rebel against your circumstances, laziness and mediocrity — not the system. The best will make it, and that notion is genetically embedded within our fabric. If we were all equal, evolution wouldn’t exist. The human spirit encourages us to excel"

"American Capitalist" is currently set for an October 11th, 2011 release date.

FFDP is Crazy Town's retarded little brother. Anyone that listens to them can fxck off in a box. I hate how they had to cover Bad Company and make it stupider for the Tapout generation. They make the safest, p***yrock, nickelback with more distortion, walmart-ass crap I've ever heard. If you like FFDP, go buy LEPROSY by a band called DEATH and then gut yourself and leave your own body face down a$$ up in a f***ing filthy ditch somewhere.

I still enjoy an occasional spin of Way Of The Fist, but I haven't heard an entire 5FDP song after that album. Whatever, there will always be mainstream rock/metal bands to cater to a certain crowd. Honestly Crawford, sounds like you have a personal problem. Props on Death, but my goodness.

Pretty sad that some of the guys in my MMA school, the "Tapout Generation" as it was so coined, consider FFDP as something "heavy" to work out to, that's thrown in the mix with their standard rap and beat-filled music mix. Cuz you know, listening to a black guy say something along the lines of, "I'm a bad-ass nigga" TOTALLY makes everyone in the room want to fight harder.

Nothing against anyone of any skin color or anything, it's all just so cliche that I could almost gag.

Here I go trying to *rarely* up the ante (because the musical tastes of everyone there are so predictable and I'm there to train and not to listen to music), so to speak, with metal and not radio-friendly rock that actually has a heavy and fast pace and legit lyrical content as it pertains to pushing one's limits or fighting back and it goes largely ignored.
