The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell: Vol. 1
Label: Prospect Park
Littered with cameos (Rob Halford, In This Moment's Maria Brink, Max Cavalera), The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1 has all the trappings of a big-time rock album. The choruses are huge (especially on "Watch You Bleed" and "Anywhere but Here"), while the production is slick and intricate (the number of effects applied to Ivan Moody is kind of insane). These days, Five Finger are definitely more concerned with delivering polished arena jams, but "You" and a cover of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" prove they haven't abandoned their roots in groovy thrashers.
