FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Streams “This Is The Way” Featuring DMX


Five Finger Death Punch just released the deluxe version of their latest record Afterlife, featuring a new song called “This Is The Way” with the late DMX on vocals. The song comes alongside a video directed by influential filmmaker Hype Williams, a longtime friend and close collaborator of DMX.

“Music is meant to be universal and without boundaries, and it starts at the top with us, the artists,” said Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “We have always embraced the mixing of genres, whether it be the remake of LL Cool J‘s ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ featuring Tech N9ne as a guest, or our collaboration with blues warrior Kenny Wayne Shepherd, country star Brantley Gilbert, and Brian May, the legendary guitarist of Queen, on the song ‘Blue on Black.'”

“The idea of collaborating with DMX had been in discussion for years, and it was a long and winding road to turn this particular item on our wish list into reality. He was a lyrical warrior, a true original who spoke his mind incorruptibly. We have always viewed DMX as ‘the metalhead of hip-hop’ because of his aggressive, raw, and untamed style.

“He growled and snarled, aiming to rattle some cages–an attitude we share, as Five Finger Death Punch has always been drawn to the fearless and the real. It made all the sense in the world, but today this is more than just a song; it’s a salute to a legend, a way to honor DMX‘s memory.”

The deluxe version of Afterlife also offers three acoustic versions of the album’s songs “The End”, “Judgement Day”, and “Thanks For Asking”. Afterlife is out now on all streaming services.
