Five Finger Death Punch – F8


“Just A Little Bit Off Today You Can All Fuck Off Today”

There’s a little line that described how I was feeling in the beginning of this week. Sometimes you are “A Little Bit Off” and Five Finger Death Punch puts words to it in a quite amazing way. I have to write a few words about my relationship with this band. I have to admit that I dismissed them at first as a Bolibompaband (Bolibompa is a Swedish TV-show for little children) and I couldn’t belive the fact that they attracted tens of thousands people to their shows around the world. I was wrong, in fact I was extremely wrong.

The new album “F8” are by far the best record released so far this year and it will definitely end up on my top ten chart when it’s time to sum this year up. Why did I had the thoughts about FFDP as I had? First of all I didn’t gave them a proper chance. I made up my mind that this was crappy music from a crappy band and one of these days I start to enjoying Volbeat as well, who knows. The album starts with the title track and it’s an intro that takes us into the song “Inside Out” which is full of energy and a great chorus. “Living The Dream”, “Darkness Settles In” and “Leave It All Behind” is extremely good songs and “This Is War” is this typical angry song that you hear from FFDP and other bands in the same genre, Angry is good sometimes when it comes to music.

Before I leave you I have to write a few words of the dynamite track “A Little Bit Off. I usually don’t listen to the lyrics because I live under the slogan that a good song is a good song no matter what. “A Little Bit Off” is a great song with lyrics that suits me right now. In a year from now maybe the lyrics doesn’t affect me but right now my life is pretty much right in those lyrics.
