Five Finger Death Punch Dream Of Being The Next Metallica

(TeamRock Radio) Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael admits he dreams of seeing his band reach the level of Metallica, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath - but he concedes it could be "unattainable."

Kael hopes they can scale the heights of the biggest groups in the business and achieve festival headliner status and says they'll plough on to achieve their goal.

He tells Talk Toomey: "We are definitely poised. That's never something that you would expect or say, 'Oh, yeah, we're gonna be the next Black Sabbath.' I didn't think I was gonna be in the next FFDP, let alone Black Sabbath. But we are in a position where we've got a ton of fans out there. We've sold millions of records.

"Bands like Black Sabbath, Metallica and Iron Maiden - in my own head, that's unattainable. Those are special bands and I definitely hold them up in high regard on the shelf.

"Would I like to be there? F*** yes - playing those huge shows and stepping into those shoes and filling them. But that's something you really can't ever expect to happen. It just kind of happens. And that's based on the fans." Read more here.
