From the cofounder of Five Finger Death Punch, a fascinating inside account of one of the most successful heavy-metal bands of the past decade, and a reveali. Well, when else will certainly you discover this prospect to get this book Death Punch'd: Surviving Five. Finger Death Punch's Metal Mayhem By Jeremy Spencer.
The man is a musician, not a Nobel-prize winning author and with that in mind, his book was a hell of a lot more fun to read than one would expect. Spencer writes the way that I speak, all tones of sarcasm, brutal honesty and nonfiltered.
Reading this book with his writing tone felt like someone I know and hang out with, just talking to me. The getting sidelined with off-topic antidotes was so real to me. I cracked up about the woman in the hospital with the impacted turd, not that he was making fun of the poor woman, but his descriptions of how the incident played out were hilarious. Spencer's self-deprecating humor might wear thin on some audiences, but not the readers that suffer from the same defense mechanism. I admire Jeremy's ability to own up to his mistakes and shortcomings and for letting the world know that damaged people can come from perfectly normal, healthy, love-filled backgrounds.
I also applaud Jeremy for getting clean, twice and I am rooting for this second sobriety to last longer than the first. I liked the inclusion of the different pictures as well. If Spencer ever writes a second book, I'll be standing in line to download it.
I came away still liking the band, but not liking Jeremy Spencer. His dad, an actual author, helped him write it and it still comes off as a 14 year old's writing style. I suppose Jeremy wanted to keep the way he actually speaks intact, but it paints him as perpetually immature. The book is gross; painfully gross, and for the record I have read and liked The Heroin Diaries and Tommyland, both of whi This book was awful.
The book is gross; painfully gross, and for the record I have read and liked The Heroin Diaries and Tommyland, both of which are also pretty gross.
The narrative is told from two ends- one chapter from his childhood, one chapter as an adult trying to form a band, etc.
This is not necessarily a bad choice in general, but was poorly executed. For one, his foray with drugs and girls as a teenager leads directly into extra douchey forays with drugs and girls as a member of FFDP.
The result is skin-crawling. I also have a personal preference for stories to be told mostly linearly, so that might have had something to do with it. Overall, Jeremy comes across as a brat who wanted to write a book about how he's no longer a brat. He pays lip service to how awful he was when he was younger and blames the drugs, but even as a sober author, continuously brags about his sexual conquests in portapottys and closets. He berates singer Ivan Moody at any opportunity, then says something nice about him, and then lashes out at him again.
The band's current bass player, Chris Kael, who is arguably the most interesting and positive member of the band, is mentioned exactly one time.
He passes out, and the final chapter is him basically going "Wild, huh?! Oh I didn't die, but I'm still cool! And no more drugs, bye. You should only download this book if you want to hear Jeremy Spencer's self aggrandizing stories. Excellent book. Jeremy is very open and honest about his faults and those around him.
I absolutely loved the structure of the chapters as they switch back and forth berween alternating times of his life. The only complaint is there were a lot of recurring stories with unnecessary details about "reptile dysfunction". However, I can't truly take away from him on this because it was probably a side product of the brutal honesty.
Feb 27, Debby rated it did not like it. I can't tell if this was book written as part of self discovery or an attempt to highlight debauchery and absolutely disgusting human behavior.
They way Spencer is able to disparage people shows what a horrible human being he is. Good for him on being clean and sober. Maybe he should work on treating people with respect or maybe that is beneath him. Mar 13, Mr. Nebel rated it liked it. It was an ok book. The time jumped from chapter to chapter and was mostly about Jeremy getting his act together to help form FFDP.
I would have liked to have read more about the band and the influences for the songs. Dec 18, Tracy rated it it was ok Shelves: Jan 30, Mark Noonan rated it did not like it. This book was very disappointing.
Being a recovering alcoholic and addict I almost found this book offensive. He comes across as glorifying his addiction to meth and especially sex. Ali pretty much talks about is sex capades and porta potties and bathrooms which some were pretty gross and I'm not going to go into detail.
There's nothing wrong with sharing your story about addiction but when it comes across as bragging about it I don't think you're taking your recovery very seriously He also like This book was very disappointing. There's nothing wrong with sharing your story about addiction but when it comes across as bragging about it I don't think you're taking your recovery very seriously He also likes to talk about his bandmates behind their back especially Ivan Moody.
So I did not like this book very much However if you're in the mood for juvenile sex jokes, and a story about bragging about coke, meth, and having sex than this book is for you! Feb 25, Eva G. I love Five Finger Death Punch, I was looking forward to reading this book and their story of their road to success. The drug abuse, and other vile stories like treatment of his girlfriends I had to skip over and had to put the book down several times.
Girls—stop letting men, rock stars, whatever famous I love Five Finger Death Punch, I was looking forward to reading this book and their story of their road to success. Girls—stop letting men, rock stars, whatever famous treat you bad!! Jesus Christ dump them and have some respect for yourselves!
Aug 19, PeppyKC rated it it was amazing. I loved this book a thousand times more than I thought I would. What a freakin shitshow of a journey Jeremy has been through!
His honesty and detailed depiction of his life along with his humor really made this book enjoyable. I inhaled every last page of it as fast as I could. Hard hitting Amazing brutally honest look at the authors spiral down into addiction hell. Jeremy holds nothing back in describing the total selfishness and self destructive behavior that goes along with addiction.
Anyone battling can definitely relate to and get a message of hope from reading g this book. What an awesome read. I find his humor hilarious. Some of the descriptions were a bit graphic and gross but definitely needed to be in the book to make it a little more interesting. Jun 15, Colleen Phoenix sprkl rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed reading this.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Was not really a fan of Jeremy before but love 5fdp. He is quirky and funny. Glad I gave it a chance. I do not doubt Jeremy Spencer's sincerity. He went through Hell. He worked himself out of it. These are good things. I salute him. But I have to evaluate this as a reader, and as a reader I have to say, It's not very good. The writing is is stilted; the attempts at humor fail--and not, primarily, because they are sophomoric.
But because they don't scan. What's the secret of comed--Timing! The story is a more graphic version of every "Behind the Music" episode. Spencer started to make it in music. But he was derailed by sex, drugs, and booze, which had him doing awful, disgusting things to continue to get high--on chemicals or vaginas.
The book itself announces its own standard format. Alice Cooper--who seems to be somewhat connected to Spencer--announces "One of the best rock 'n' roll, addiction and redemption stories since Nikki Sixx's The Heroin Diaries. Sixx's book came out in '07, this in ' That's about as weak and generic a recommendation as possible.
If the reader wants to learn anything about the music, the process of its making, or what the metal scene is like--look elsewhere. It's not even clear why Spencer prefers Metal. He likes Kiss. And in the most revealing and embarrassing section rhapsodizes about the wonders of '80s' music, including Phil Collins. Maybe he liked the drums on "In the Air Tonight"? He also seems to be a big fan of Duran Duran.
Apart from the questionable aesthetic sensibility this all implies, one never understands why metal music was so important to Spencer. But even if one wants to learn something about Spencer and his three Rs-story--rebellion, ruin, redemption--one won't be satisfied. True enough, Spencer is willing to go into graphic detail of his sex, shitting, and vomiting life--enough that some of this is uncomfortable to read--but none of this reads as particularly revelatory.
Every woman in the book is a "chick"; if there is alcohol, it will be "pounded. There's a lot going on these moments--gross though they are--but he opts for VH1 style recaps than exploration.
In the end, I'm not sure what the book is meant to show. The only point seems to be that too much alcohol and cocaine is bad. Indeed, comparing this with George Clinton's autobiography, it is clear that cocaine and its derivatives are especially nasty drugs.
We know this, though, and it is not clear to me who needs to be told yet again. Jul 14, Jay Lamm rated it liked it. I think this book really ruined Five Finger Death Punch for me. I was already kind of getting out of liking the band but then I saw the video of the singer getting all pissy and upset on stage over how Jeremy Spencer wrote and released this book without his consent.
That prompted me to download the book.
Hey, it could've been an excellent marketing ploy all along. I'll be honest, the book isn't very well written. It's filled with horrendous cliches that I've already heard used "I was as nervous as a I think this book really ruined Five Finger Death Punch for me. It's filled with horrendous cliches that I've already heard used "I was as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a store full of rocking chairs" and abysmal similes.

Apparently he thinks a "twisted sense of humor" is saying things like "vomit volcano" and finding a bunch of different ways to turn a phrase when referring to sex. The writing is just awful and juvenile. Spencer goes into fine detail about his many sexual exploits, and with that he seems very impressed with himself. He tries to balance off his bragging by continuously calling into attention how he has problems getting his dick hard while on a variety of drugs. At one point he respects the anonymity of AA by not revealing the names of the movie stars he saw there, then at many other points he freely talks about the drug problems he witnessed with loads of other musicians he's crossed paths with.
I mean, look, overall the book was fun to read through. I always enjoy reading about a successful musician and how they got to where they are. This wasn't one of those over-the-top Motley Crue stories though. Yes, the guy had issues with drugs, alcohol, and sex but I have a hard time sympathizing with anyone who can't learn a fucking lesson.
This guy goes through the entire book while in a terrible relationship with one girl who he constantly berates, cheats on, and strings along. His mentality is perfectly summed up towards the end of the book when he breaks up with her for the "last time" but agrees to download her a boob job as a going away gift.
It's poor judgement like that that litters the book and drove me crazy.
I just can't identify, sympathize, feel sorry for, or give a shit about people like this. And he has the balls to say that bands who write technical songs and don't write catchy pop radio songs are intentionally "not competing. Maybe some bands are genuinely interested in playing to their ability, writing complex songs that challenge the pop formula, and want to do something with more substance than writing yet another batch of fake-tough UFC influenced meat-head metal. Aug 15, TJ rated it it was amazing.
It's not every day that you get to peel back the pages and see how this over the top crazy character like Jeremy was created and shaped over the course of his life.
Half the time I was laughing at some of the drug and booze fueled antics that Jeremy fesses up to I'm seriously never going to look at mens dirty socks the same way ever again. Thanks dude! It's easy to see your favorite band on the news and in social media and think that these guys I just finished reading this book and I LOVED it! It's easy to see your favorite band on the news and in social media and think that these guys live the life and are happy about it and don't have a care or a problem in the world.
Death Punch'ed is that reminder that those guys on stage are real human beings with the same, if not more problems, than us regular Joe's out in the audience. My first real experience with 5FDP was during their tour with Godsmack in , which Jeremy mentions about in his book.
I had gone to that show with the intent to see Godsmack because my only exposure to Five Finger was "Far From Home" and "Bad Company", singles that had been played on the radio. Within minutes of taking the stage Ivan damn near caused a riot when he invited the entire Coliseum to the Pit because there wasn't enough people in it and when Security tried to stop them Ivan threatened the band would walk.
After that show I was hooked! I went out and bought all the albums I could and have never looked back. Reading this book is like pulling back that curtain and seeing past the smoke and lights to see the real Wizard of Oz. At the time of that first concert I would not have imagined that that skinny tattoo'ed drummer wearing a demon mask and absolutely shredding it up on a drum set that was attached to a lift kit that hoisted him like 10ft in the air ever needed drugs.

He looked like he was having the time of his life just banging away at those drums. Goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover.
I'm glad Jeremy wrote this book to share his ups and downs with his fans. I'm even more happy that he is still alive and kicking after reading these stories.
You seriously have nine lives dude! I can't wait to see what you're going to do next! Sep 16, Jonathan Anderson rated it really liked it. I hate Five Finger Death Punch's music, and I've given them multiple chances, so I would've had no intention of downloading this book if my first impression of it after "Huh, that guy wrote a book? To anybody who's read that book, those words are like a dare.
Well, I'll give this to Jeremy Spencer: I'm actually surprised that Tommy Lee wasn't quoted on the back perhaps because he's not as vocal about sobriety? Dude apparently had sex almost as much as he got high, and it's these coital encounters that he lavishes most of his attention to detail on. This is a rather vivid, dare I say lascivious book, which is to say it's basically what you want in a rock and roll memoir.
Spencer doesn't pull punches or leave out gory details, his portrayals of his bandmates are particularly unflattering, until it comes to the end unfortunately. I applaud anybody's decision to get sober, particularly when you have a problem like Spencer did.
The sections detailing his childhood and his addictions the present day Death Punch sections let these chapters do the talking on the addiction front are powerful, but rather than just end, which I complain about books doing a lot, Spencer wraps things up WAY too neatly in a three page epilogue that leaves me wondering if the story's really done or if he just wants it to be. I guess time will tell on that one, but it's a slightly different anticlimax that is disappointing all the same.
Also, another time honored complaint that needs to be pointed out in terms of this book: I've never seen so many cases where only one of that parentheses was used. Sep 28, Patrick Kearns rated it liked it. So I did, and here are my thoughts on the book.
Plot Jeremy has had a troubled life. If this book had a rating, it would be rated R. I think the best way I can describe the novel is brutally honest. Spenser spares no detail, describing every party, every sex scene, and every drug related incident vividly.
However, if you want a poorly written book about the struggles of a now famous rock star, then this book is decent. Rock on.
Jan 26, Tex Cymbal rated it it was ok. These rock star types aren't particularly nice people are they? I have read a number of autobiographies by rockers and well, this is yet another one. The reason I read them is they are just junk food for the brain. So in that respect, this book served it's purpose. The problem with the book though is Jeremy never really gets very deep about anything.
He does a lot of drugs and drinks a lot of alcohol. I would say he even has a lot of sex except he actually doesn't. Despite being some kind of chi These rock star types aren't particularly nice people are they? Never mind that his experiences all seem rather rushed in public toilets as well.
Jeremy tells us a few times that he is well known for his fast drumming, ok, except there are thousands of bands that play faster than 5FDP. Playing fast in itself isn't all that amazing. I would have liked to have known more about the lyrics given they are different to the usual love story stuff that most bands go on about.
But I guess that would be singer, Ivan Moody's story. The writing is really immature and sometimes poor from a literary point of view. Time to find another brand of bubblegum. Jun 23, Anthony rated it really liked it. Always interesting reading a rock n roll biography to live vicariously through the rocker. It satisfied mine as well as many kids dreams of being a musician and seeing how messed up that life is and then being thankful to not having gone down that path.
The only thing I didn't like about the book was the way it jumped around. He alternated chapters with a leading up to 5FDP formation and one after the formation so they ultimately met up and you had the whole story.
I had a hard t Excellent book. I had a hard time putting it all together and had to go back and reread the early chapters once I finished the book to put some of the info in order in my head.
But overall a thoroughly enjoyable book as long as you don't mind the sex, drugs and language of metal rockers Jun 13, Dani Mundt rated it it was amazing. It's as though Jeremy Spencer cut open his soul and put it on paper. He held nothing back, a very bold, courageous thing to do, considering the destructive things he did to himself and other during his troubles with loneliness, low self esteem, addiction, and codependency.
If this book hadn't made me uncomfortable at times due to his extreme drug use and sexual escapades, it wouldn't have been true to life. You wouldn't have seen the highs and lows of he who is Jeremy Spencer, and it wouldn't ha It's as though Jeremy Spencer cut open his soul and put it on paper.
You wouldn't have seen the highs and lows of he who is Jeremy Spencer, and it wouldn't have been such an intriguing read.Aug 20, Sarah Whitener rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jun 15, Colleen Phoenix sprkl rated it it was amazing. Friend Reviews.
The man writes like people think, which is definitely not politically correct. A definite must read for fans and really for anyone!!! I liked the broke up chapter writing as I might have grown tired of the early years with no mention of the band or the songs that I love.
Was not really a fan of Jeremy before but love 5fdp. I entered several giveaways for this book and was ecstatic when I won a copy on June 16th,
