On 3 May 2018, Five Finger Death Punch released their song ‘When the Seasons Change’. It is the third song released from the band’s new album, “And Justice for None”, which is set to drop 18 May 2018 via their label, Prospect Park.
The song immediately starts out with a drop. Instead of going into the verse heavily, it goes the opposite direction and drops in with a twangy, yet enticingly melodic acoustic guitar and sharp back beat of the accompanying drums. The lyrics and vocals are strong in comparison to the tame background instrumentals. The drive increases throughout the bridge, and as the chorus hits, you can feel the “seasons change” along with it.
Opposite of the surge in energy and deep vocals, the chorus still holds onto its sense of vulnerability. The tempo slows back down as the song drops back into a second verse, holding onto the acoustic guitars and drums with some echoed lyrics haunting the background. The song briefly dips back before crashing back into the chorus. Electric guitars ignite the melody as the bridge approaches, but drop to just vocals and a single acoustic guitar to accompany it. Finally, the song launches back into one more chorus, and maintains its drive up until the fall off at the very end.
Five Finger Death Punch is a heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada that was formed in 2005. The band’s line up currently consists of vocalist Ivan Moody, lead guitarist Jason Hook, rhythm guitarist Zoltan Bathory, drummer Jeremy Spencer, and bassist Chris Kael. Most notably, the group has tour with Avenge Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach and Ozzy Osbourne. Five Finger Death Punch released their first studio album, “The Way of the Fist”, back in 2007 and was an immediate success. In addition to these hits, the group has gone on to make 6 more albums. Along with the release of ‘When the Seasons Change’, the band released singles ‘Fake’ and ‘Sham Pain’ back in April. Furthermore, the latest of these albums, “And Justice For None”, will be dropped later this month.
