Five Finger Death Punch
Five Finger Death Punch was original started in Las Vegas, Nevada, but was moved to Los Angeles,
California. The formation of the band took place in 2005 and was initiated by Zoltan Bathory (bassist) and Jeremy Spencer
(drummer). The name given to the band was taken from martial arts cinema. Audiences might be more familiar with the five point
palm exploding heart technique that was used in Quentin Tarantino's film Kill Bill. The bassist Zoltan Bathory and the drummer
Jeremy Spencer recruited Ivan Moody to be the vocalist. At the time, Ivan Moody was living in Denver, Colorado but made the
move to Los Angeles to start immediately recording with the band.

During an interview with Metal Insider, Zoltan Bathory talked about how to stay relevant in a digital age of
music, "The delivery system is different, and the information you get today is one hundred times more than someone got 40
years ago. Bands can't disappear anymore for two years. By the time you come back, people are like 'Who? Did you know that
numerous countries disappeared and the economy system collapsed while you were gone? Where were you?' 'We were in the studio,
I didn't notice! What happened?'"
