    It's when Five Finger Death Punch pull back the blanket of distortion that the world really gets to see how immensely tight of a band they are.

    The first single from, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 2, out November 19, "Battleborn", is their best slow song since "The Bleeding". Seguing from a dreamy, warm guitar intro rising from Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook's six-string haze, the song builds into one of their biggest hooks yet. Jeremy Spencer pounds out a smooth groove that resounds with equal power as Chris Kael's bass reverberates. The spotlight dims on Ivan Moody as his massive voice carries the refrain, "I've been a thousand places and shook a million hands. I don't know where I'm going, but I know just where I've been".

    As a solo scorches, Five Finger Death Punch veers towards as a surprise as Moody takes over an airport Intercom, evoking the song's themes of longing on the road.

    Divinely dynamic, it's one of the band's best yet, and it opens the door into The Wrong Side of Heaven once more.
