Five Finger Death Punch Premiere Video For “This Is The Way” Featuring Late Rap Star DMX


0

Alternative metal stars Five Finger Death Punch have just released their collaborative single “This Is The Way“, which features a cameo from late multi-platinum rap star DMX. That song is included on the newly issued deluxe edition of Five Finger Death Punch‘s 2022 album “AfterLife“. A music video directed by Hype Williams (Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot) was shot for the song and is available below as well.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory previously spoke on this posthumous release of that cameo:

“Music is meant to be shared, and it starts at the top with us, the artists. 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.”
