Five Finger Death Punch: The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Vol. 2 review

\"TheFive Finger Death Punch have no shortage of good new music to release. They always write stellar albums but they’ve outdone themselves this year. When they brought the idea to their record label of doing a double album, the label turned them down. Leave it to the guys from Five Finger Death Punch to tell a label what’s up. They gave the label the new music and told them to pick what songs should go on the new album because they couldn’t narrow it down. Immediately after hearing it all, the label agreed and they put out a double album, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, split into two different release dates. Volume one released in July and volume two is set for release November 19 and picks right up where volume one left off- with pure, raw, unheld aggression. Right off the bat with “Here to Die,” it’s clear they aren’t playing around and that’s confirmed when we hit the next track, “Weight Beneath My Skin.” “Wrecking Ball” continues the onslaught-no, not the Miley Cyrus song, thank god- just before going into the first semi-soft track on the album and lead single, “Battle Born,” which is basically Death Punch’s “Home Sweet Home.” The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 2 shows exactly what Five Finger Death Punch are capable of and, much like volume one, shows every side of the band. Whether you like the soft, heavy or angry side of Death Punch, whether you like the old or recent material, you’ve got something to love on this album. The only question that comes from listening to the record is this- why the hell is Ivan Moody so damn pissed off? Eh, who cares? It makes for some great music. Rating: 9/10 -Reggie Edwards
