Producers and Engineers are the unsung heroes behind the greatest albums.
The unsung hero for Five Finger Death Punch, is Kevin Churko. Five Finger Death Punch, have used Churko on War Is The Answer and American Capitalist. Now they are using him again on The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1 and 2 releases.
If you see any photos of him, you would think he is Rob Zombie’s long-lost twin.
Apart from Five Finger Death Punch, Churko has been Ozzy’s go to producer and co-writer for Black Rain and Scream, along with the remixes on the Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman albums.
In This Moment is another band that have used Churko. The best In This Moment albums like The Dream, A Star Cross Wasteland and Blood had Churko as Producer. For Blood, Churko was also a contributor as the band was down to a three-piece. He helped them get the songs out.
I even look for Churko projects that I haven’t heard before, so that I can check out the band.
One thing is certain, when Five Finger Death Punch and Kevin Churko get together, expect magic to happen. Really looking forward to the new pair of releases.
