Amway Center was the place to be as the highly anticipated lineup rolled into the Sunshine State making one of its final stops on this tour. Amid some fan disappointment due to one notable absence, “the show must go on,” as they say.
Five Finger Death Punch. With gritty, gravely sounding guitar riffs and alternating clean / unclean vocals, Five Finger Death Punch is adding just the best elements of hardcore to their brutal metal sound. With two gold albums and five years of tour dates under their belt, Five Finger Death Punch is becoming one of the leading bands in the somewhat declining heavy metal scene. The fans and the artists come together to support one of their own, in support of Ivan Moody who fell ill during the last few shows on the tour. Phil Labonte of All That Remains has stepped up to front this powerhouse band in Ivan’s absence . The choice was an almost seamlessly perfect fit for the style in which Ivan sings with impressive vocals of his own. An amazing outpouring of support for Ivan and the band as the crowd chanted his name. The crowd was bouncing with horns in the air to “Never Enough” with Phil on vocals. Always a crowd favorite, the high energy “Lift Me Up” sent the double base of Jeremy Spencer thundering through the arena while Chris Kael took the lead on vocals for “Jekyll And Hyde” and “Got Your Six”.
As the 12-song set progressed, the crowd was treated to a bit more of Austin Dickenson’s voice who came out to sing “Wrong Side of Heaven” and “Remember Everything,” with much fan participation and then Phil was out again to finish the show. Much love and support for Five Finger Death Punch as they support their brother taking the time he needs to get well.
