Five Finger Death Punch A Decade Of Destruction ArtworkAfter a lengthy legal battle with long term label Prospect Park, Five Finger Death Punch release their first new music in two years.

 

The latest instalment from FFDP comes in the form of a greatest hits album, which includes two brand new tracks as well as 14 tracks from across their career.

 

‘A Decade Of Destruction’ opens with the first of the new tracks, and new single, ‘Trouble’. As soon as the song begins you know straight away who you are listening to. FFDP aren’t doing anything new with this one, which is by all means not a bad thing. With Ivan Moody’s spoken verses and memorable choruses, pounding double kick drum and crunching guitar riffs it follows the regular format for FFDP songs which has become a known and loved sound by their fans.

 

The second new track comes in the form of a cover. 'Gone Away' is a haunting rendition of The Offspring’s 1997 hit. Not likely to make it to the band’s live set, you still can’t help but enjoy this version. A welcome calm before the storm if you like that the rest of this album brings.

 

The rest of the album plays out like a greatest hits album should. Featuring the best tracks from the past decade the whole album flows as it should with each song working well with the next.

Overall, it’s a good album. Perhaps the modern era of digital music means that there is less of a need for a greatest hits album. Most of us would simply upload the songs we like to our phones or MP3 players and hit the shuffle button. This being said, it’s a great album for a filler until we get the next full release in 2018.
