Five Finger Death Punch has been a staple of the Billboard charts since their formation. Taking their name from the cult martial arts film Five Fingers of Death, the group’s titanic riffs and darkly skewed lyrics deliver a brand of vintage thrash and blazing metal as powerful as their name. In the years following their 2007 debut, they have amassed a slew of awards via gold and platinum-selling outings like 2011’s American Capitalist, 2013’s ambitious two-volume set The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, 2018’s And Justice for None and 2022’s AfterLife.
The Los Angeles-based outfit formed back in 2005 around the talents of former U.P.O. guitar player and FFDP founder Zoltan Bathory, former W.A.S.P. guitarist Darrell Roberts, vocalist Ivan Moody (Motograter/Ghost Machine), bass player Matt Snell (Anubis Rising) and former W.A.S.P. drummer Jeremy Spencer.
Five Finger Death Punch will be joined on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at the Walmart AMP by supporting artists The HU and Fire from the Gods along with rock icons Megadeth for a night of heavy, multi-faceted rock.
It was over 30 years ago that Dave Mustaine founded Megadeth, and in the process, pioneered the sound that would become known the world over as thrash metal. From the very beginning, the band proved to be the most lethal and audacious unit on the heavy music scene, pushing thrash to the limits of musical ferocity and instrumental virtuosity on early efforts like their 1985 debut, Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good! and 1986’s seminal Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?
Megadeth has taken their place as one of metal’s most influential and respected acts — not to mention among its most successful. They have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including a 2017 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track “Dystopia,” plus 12 GRAMMY® nominations, and scored five consecutive platinum albums. With sheer determination and a relentless recording and touring schedule, Megadeth worked their way up from headlining clubs to headlining arenas, festivals and stadiums, cementing a legacy that continues to grow and spread throughout the world.
