Billboard.com has uploaded video footage of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH talking about their cover version of the traditional folk song "The House Of The Rising Sun", which appears on the band's "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2" album.
"The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2", the second half of a two-record set, is due to arrive on November 19 via via Prospect Park in North America and Eleven Seven in all other territories.
Made popular in the 1960s by THE ANIMALS, "House Of The Rising Sun" has been covered by many different artists over the years, including Bob Dylan, Sinead O'Connor and MUSE.
"We had the idea to do this for a while," FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory said about recording "House Of The Rising Sun". "The interesting thing about this song is that [it's] actually in a time signature of 6/8 which is a waltz… and rock music and waltz doesn't necessarily mix right."
He continued: "So, basically, the challenge was, how do we make this song work? How do we take away that goofy vibe and how do we make it into a rock structure?"
