Five Finger Death Punch led a night of metal in Syracuse, NY, with Volbeat, Hellyeah, and Nothing More on Sept 23, 2014.
The venue filled up early and quickly with eager fans, allowing Nothing More to open to a nearly full house. The band put on an energetic performance, delivering the wow factor fans were eager for. These four guys from San Antonio, TX are touring in support of their sixth self-titled studio album.
Hellyeah was next, following up with a solid set. Fans easily embraced the onstage energy from this group of veteran rockers, each from other successful acts. The Hellyeah lineup includes vocalist Chad Gray (Mudvayne), guitarist Tom Maxwell (Nothingface), and drummer Vinnie Paul (Pantera and Damageplan).
Up third was Volbeat, the rockabilly metal band from Copenhagen. Volbeat is well known for their live performance and this night was no different. The crowd was fully engaged on their feet, singing along, dancing, and crowd surfing. For fans who have seen them before, this was one of their better performances.
5FDP closed the show with the prowess of a well-polished headlining machine. Native to Las Vegas, the band is touring in support of The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 2, released in November 2013. They are said to be working on a sixth studio album due our next year.
