IVAN MOODY To Retire From Metal After One More FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Album

Well that's shocking.


Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody isn't long for the metal world. During the band's October 14 show in Denver, CO, Moody told the crowd that he plans to do one more Five Finger Death Punch record and then hang it up as a metal musician. Wether he continues on in another genre isn't known just yet, though he does mention in his speech that he wants to spend more time with his kids. Which honestly is one of the best reasons to retire.

Moody has performed on every Five Finger Death Punch album since their 2007 debut, and fronted both Motograter and Ghost Machine prior. So it's a pretty big deal the dude is exiting the genre after roughly two decades.

"I wanted to tell you this. And nobody else in the world knows, Denver, so this is where it's going to start. And what you do with it is up to you. The last 15 years of my life I have toured the world, I have seen every country, every city on this planet at least twice. That's a fact. And through that time as many of you parents know … I have missed a lot of time with my kiddos. So I made them a deal today, and I'm going to stick to it. After this year, I am going to make one more Five Finger Death Punch album and then I am retiring from heavy metal."

"But I wanted to start that here and tell all of you, from day one when I decided to be a singer playing places like … the Bluebird Theater, the Ogden, and we were supposed to play Red Rocks, we'll have to do that one more time. Can I play Red Rocks one more time? … I owe you everything, Colorado, Five Finger Death Punch and every knucklehead on this planet, thank you."
