- As its name indicates, Five Finger Death Punch packs a serious sonic wallop. On The Way of the Fist, the band offers up its appealing brand of metal, which moves between hardcore, ominous black metal, and melodic metal … la System of a Down or Alice in Chains. Tunes like the opener "Ashes" and "Salvation" are cases in point, alternating pummeling, in-your-face verses with winding, hooky choruses. The Way of the Fist rocks hard, and -- with its sense of variety -- should appeal to metalheads of many stripes.
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "Dig a little deeper and the clean guitar lines and vocal hooks are there but they generally play second fiddle to the general aural blitzkrieg..."
