Five Finger Death Punch Grab Number 2 Spot on the Billboard 200

What a year it has been for Five Finger Death Punch. They recorded a song with rock legend Rob Halford, are currently on tour across Europe, and both halves of the band’s double album The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell have landed at Number two on the Billboard 200.

The latest album, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 2, sold 77,000 copies in its first week of release, less than Volume 1 which sold 112,000 during its first week available. The album’s first single “Battleborn” managed to peak at Number 2 on the Mainstream Rock charts as well.

In a recent interview guitarist Zoltan Bathory described the differences in the two albums saying, “When we were separating the songs into two records, we had a certain criteria. We wanted to make sure that we separated all 26 songs into two batches where fans almost couldn’t have a preference between them. That was the goal.”

While FFDP managed to outsell acts like Lady Gaga and the Duck Dynasty Christmas album, they failed to surpass Eminem, whose latest album, The Marshall Mathers LP2, reclaimed the Number one spot during its third week on the charts.

Bathory continued his interview by saying “‘Vol. 2′ may be a shade darker and heavier, but just a shade. There are no drastic differences because it’s the same time capsule, recorded in the same time. We had a creative flow, and we ended up with a lot of songs that we thought were great and we wanted to release them all.”

Five Finger Death Punch are currently on a tour in Europe alongside Avenged Sevenfold. The band will also be headline ShipRocked 2014 and are taking suggestions for the Trespass America 2014 tour.
