Former W.A.S.P. Guitarist Joins FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH

Former W.A.S.P. guitarist Darrell Roberts has joined FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, the new band featuring former MOTOGRATER vocalist Ivan Moody (Ghost), ex-U.P.O. guitarist Zoltan Bathory, and former DEADSETT bassist Matt Snell. "I will continue to write and record my own material, but when I heard 5FDP, I knew I had to be a part of this band," Roberts writes in a statement. "They are fucking brutal, extremely talented and the debut CD, 'The Way of the Fist', contains some of the best songs I've heard in a long time! I haven't been this excited to play music in years!!!"

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's debut album, "The Way of the Fist", was recorded at Next Level Studios with Stevo "Shotgun" Bruno (PRONG, MÖTLEY CRÜE) and at Complex Studios with Mikey Sarkisyan (SPINESHANK). Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).

Commenting on their musical direction, the band write, "No nu metal, glue metal or anything hybrid or hyphenated. It's TRUE metal... undiluted, raw as metal was always meant to be. In fact for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH it was important that everyone involved at any stage of this recording was a diehard metalhead."
