FFDP Zoltan Bathory's Six Riffs To Drive A Tank To


About to drive a war machine into battle? Well here's what the Five Finger Death Punch guitarist recommends you stick on the speakers...

Pantera – This Love

“I like the contrast between the clean guitars and when they hit it. Pantera’s all about the groove.”

Iron Maiden – Wrathchild

“What happens in Wrathchild is that the bass and the guitar really come together to create something interesting.”

Accept – Fast As A Shark

“Wolf Hoffmann is one of my all-time favourite guitarists. He’s someone who is in full control of their instrument.”

Scorpions – Rock You Like A Hurricane

“There’s not a single person that doesn’t throw their fist in the air when that main riff comes on. Both the Shenkers can really, really play.”

Metallica – Seek & Destroy

“If I wanted to do a show and the soundtrack has to tell you it’s going to be about heavy metal, what riff would I use? It would be Seek And Destroy.”

Killswitch Engage – The End Of Heartache

“They’re a US band but they build things up in a very European style; building up those harmonies!”
