Music: Five Finger Death Offspring…

Yesterday, during one of my many YouTube music-video binges, I stumbled across the new video for Five Finger Death Punch’s “Gone Away” (above). I had missed its release entirely (despite 5FDP being one of my favourite bands), and quickly realized it was a (very faithful) cover of The Offspring’s song of the same name. It’s been a long time since I last listened to anything by Offspring (which is strange, because I love their earlier albums), but it was amazing how quickly the lyrics came flooding back. So, naturally, I sang along. It was a welcome trip down memory lane.

5FDP’s cover appears on their greatest hits (so far) collection, A Decade of Destruction. The original song (video below) appeared on Offspring’s Ixnay on the Hombre album (1996) — the follow up to the appropriately-named Smash (1994).

New Music: TRIVIUM and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH

Here are a pair of new music videos for two of my favourite bands: TRIVIUM and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH.

Trivium, “Silence in the Snow”

A great new song, this time with a power metal influence creeping in?

Silence in the Snow released by Roadrunner Records on October 2nd, 2015.

Five Finger Death Punch, “Jekyll and Hyde”

Amusing intro, followed by a now-typical 5FDP stomper. Reminiscent of “The Pride” from American Capitalist (2011).

Got Your Six is released by Eleven Seven Music on August 28th, 2015. The other song already circulating from the album, “Hell to Pay”, is also very good.
