While it seems that the Internet has a general dislike for Five Finger Death Punch, their record sales and show attendance indicate otherwise. So where does one start with Five Finger Death Punch‘s nine studio albums? According to guitarist Zoltan Bathory in an interview with Revolver, it’s all about their 2013 double album The Wrong Side Of Heaven. Well, that or the 2007 single “The Bleeding”.
“I would say that the [2007 single] ‘The Bleeding’ era was a breakthrough era — those are songs that the hardcore fans know — [but] I would say [2013’s] The Wrong Side of Heaven is our most popular group of songs.
“Even if it’s a little slower — it’s not an arena banger — [the title track is] a song that hits everyone. [It’s] a very impactful and meaningful song for military guys. We did a campaign around it that raised a lot of money for PTSD. That song was a vehicle for good, so to speak.”
Bathory also recently revealed he’s now a playable character in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone games. Speaking with Loudwire, Bathory said the process of getting a proper model of himself into the game was a lot harder than people might think.
“Behind the scenes, it’s amazing. We had to go to various locations—it took a long time. Various photo shoots, video shoots and then there are a lot of military advisors and former special operators who are there, they’re making sure that everything is accurate with the right gear, the right equipment. Everything has to be perfect. I’m talking 15-, 16-hour days of shooting.”
He continued: “I loved every minute of it. Those special advisors and military guys are my friends, I knew them before, some of them I met a long, long time ago overseas on military bases, so that’s pretty interesting that this was also kind of a reunion with those guys.”
