Los Angeles metallers Five Finger Death Punch will release their sophomore album, "War Is The Answer", in the U.S. on September 22 via Prospect Park Records. The CD was produced by the band and Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment), and was mixed by Randy Staub (Metallica, Mtley Cre, Nickelback). According to a press release, "the record evolves the band's already mature sound, ranging from the undeniable melodies in 'Hard to See' to the brutally nihilistic 'Burn It Down' [available for streaming below] destined to please fans both new and old."

"War Is The Answer" track listing:

01. Dying Breed 02. Hard To See 03. Bulletproof 04. No One Gets Left Behind 05. Crossing Over 06. Burn It Down 07. Far From Home 08. Falling In Hate 09. My Own Hell 10. Walk Away 11. Canto 34 12. Bad Company (Bad Company cover) 13. War Is The Answer

Five Finger Death Punch's new single, "Hard To See", is available for streaming at RevolverMag.com. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently stated about the track, "It's about seemingly irresolvable differences. It's valid in just about any setting: politics, religion, relationships Everything is 'only an opinion' based on limited information, yet people sometimes get attached to their point of views to the extremein fact, to the point they would launch wars over them."

Regarding the upcoming CD, Bathory stated, "In terms of the overall style, I would say that we've continued the journey we started on the first album, so there's a healthy balance of melody and aggression, and as always we concentrated on writing strong metal songs in the traditional sense. There's some epic moments on the record, and there's some straight-up home-wreckers, too. All I can say is, those who liked our first album are going to Love this one!"

Five Finger Death Punch's next album will follow up its 2007 debut, "The Way Of The Fist", which has sold 343,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The CD produced three singles, including "Stranger Than Fiction" and "Never Enough".

    this band does nothing for me. i listened to the first album over and over, searching for what people were so hyped about, but all i found was garbage metal, nowhere on par with Lamb of God or Mastodon in the mix.

    Here in Holland I have never heard anybody talk about em. Personally I really liked their first album.

    I think they are just ok, very overrated. They aren't bad and I like some of their songs but I don't think they are nearly as good as people say.

    these guys aren't overrated, no song on their first album sounds like a filler, and zoltan is a great guitarist. YOu try playing the lead part to way of the fist. can't wait to see these guys soon

    I love these guys. I had the pleasure of seeing them live once and they tore the roof off the place. I am extremely psyched for the new album.

    no way in hell these guys are over rated... every song i listen to i can relate to... when u rate a band you have to listen to it all... lyrics.. guitar.. bass.. drums.. rythem... they have it all.. and if you dont see that your retarded

    Overrated my arse!!! Anyone who criticises 5FDP either haven't listened to their two albums or doesn't have a pulse. They are AWESOME. Bloody excellent.

    Yeah! Right when I heard Burn It Down,I noticed on the spot that the guitar riff is the same as part of The Way of the Fist. My exact thought. But I did listen to most of the album, and it's pretty awesome! It's totally aggressive and they didn't change their style, which is definitely crucial. There were some softer/slower songs on the album like Crossing Over, Walk Away, and Bad Company (a little heavier). Overall, I'd give this album an 8 out of 10.
