DragonForce guitarist, Herman Li, recently invited Five Finger Death Punch guitarist, Andy James onto Twitch for a live shred collaboration session.
Among the topics covered are Herman watching Five Finger Death Punch with Andy at the Wembley Arena 2020, how Andy learnt the setlist for the European Tour when filling in for Jason Hook, why we won’t be seeing him on risers at gigs due to his fear of heights, his Kiesel signature guitar and more. And of course, fans can be sure to see lots of shredding!
Fun Fact: Did you know that Five Finger Death Punch’s first show was opening for DragonForce all the way back in 2006!? The two bands have remained friends since, with Herman Li recording the guitars for Maximum Overdrive on Zoltan Bathoy’s yacht. DragonForce also attempted to write a 5FDP song in five minutes on Twitch with Sam Totman taking on lead vocals.
