Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory talked about the band’s name, saying it’s pretty bad in his opinion.
“The name of the band has to have some kind of effect. It doesn’t have to be positive; it doesn’t have to be, like, ‘That’s the greatest name in the world!’
“It can be, ‘Oh my god, that’s the dumbest f*cking sh*t I ever heard!’ – equally good, because it got a reaction.
“I mean, I don’t think you can beat ‘Five Finger Death Punch.’ That’s probably the worst f*cking name. In fact, we almost changed it, but then Ivan [Moody, vocals] came in and said:
“That’s the best name ever, they’re gonna f*cking hate it! Keep it! That’s f*cking ridiculous!'”
As for the new material, the band wrote:
“Recording sessions are going great. So far we tracked 7-8 songs – Ivan started dropping vocals on some of them. This sh*t already sounds insane. Good times.”
