Five Finger Death Punch
Groove-metal guitars and the basso vocals of Ivan "Ghost" Moody mark the music of this LA-based 5-piece modern radio metal band. Formed by Hungarian guitarist Zoltan Bathory and ex-W.A.S.P. guitarist Darrell Roberts, Five Finger Death Punch (aka FFDP, or even 5FDP) launched in 2005, signed to Firm Music, a well-heeled management company/label and released The Way of the Fist in 2007. Alternating between throaty yell/screams and near spoken word singing amid decidedly crushing riffs, the band offers a brand of metal that is both accessible to the Warped Tour kids and tough enough to allow singer Ghost Moody to appear shirtless in most photo opportunities.

All That Remains
Runtime: 53 minIt may have taken a few years for Boston act All That Remains to make an impact on the metalcore scene, but with the release of their third full-length effort The Fall Of Ideals in 2006, All That Remains not only finally found the right balance of melody and aggression, but they also found a whole new audience, with the album easily outselling their previous efforts.
After a brief introduction and some pre-show footage of various fans screaming the bands name, All That Remains quite literally destroy with Become The Catalyst, The Air That I Breathe, Not Alone, It Dwells In Me, Six, This Calling, The Weak Willed and Indictment, all of which are lifted from The Fall Of Ideals.
The remaining four tracks This Darkened Heart, For Salvation, Tattered On My Sleeve and Focus Shall Not Fail are lifted from 2004s This Darkened Heart and seamlessly blend in with the groups more recent material without clashing too much.
All That Remains performance is near flawless, while the editing together of the multiple camera angles (Filmed by the renown High Roller Studios) retains the energy and excitement of the performance and the crowd participation perfectly. Audio wise, mixer Jason Suecof has managed to keep a raw edge to the bands sound, which gives All That Remains Live a very real live feel.
All up, All That Remains Live is a rock solid package that shows exactly why All That Remains are considered one of the better metalcore acts doing the circuit today. Highly recommended.

As the Palaces Burn
Lamb Of God
Runtime: 1 hr 10 minOriginally released in May of 2003, Lamb of God's As The Palaces Burn is considered to by many to be one the most influential, modern day metal records of our time. The album is as uncompromising lyrically as it is musically. As The Palaces Burn takes an unflinching look at the events and attitudes that resulted from the 9/11 terrorist attacks on American soil. Songs like "Blood Junkie" are unequivocal in their condemnation of George W. Bush and his administration's jingoist stance. "Retribution or vengeance in matters not, as long as the pig stays on top of the ladder of bone his father has built," Randy Blythe howls for all to hear. It's courageous and blunt, a statement for the time, and one that the band felt compelled to make. "We all lived through that time and we had the vehicle to express those opinions," says drummer Chris Adler. "I think it would have been irresponsible to not speak our minds."
Josh Wilbur (who has worked with Lamb of God as both an engineer and producer since 2006) was careful to conserve the album's lightning-in-a-bottle energy. "A lot of people, including myself, love the original," Wilbur says. "The whole point was just to do a more 'hi-fi' version of an already great record and not to damage the killer vibe that Devin Townsend and the band had captured...Real musicians sweating it out in a studio in Virginia over a decade ago."
