Five Finger Death Punch’s Zoltan Bathory Used to Dye His Scrotum Blue
We've all heard of "blue balls" and if you haven't, we're not going to be your educators — you can head to Urban Dictionary for that. For Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory, however, that figure of speech used to take on quite a literal meaning.
In an interview with Metal Hammer, the guitarist opened up about some of his more personal habits, ranging from his destructive childhood in Hungary, where blowing things up was a cure for boredom, to intimate behind-bedroom-doors details.
When asked if he's most vain about his hair, face or figure, Bathory replied, "I used to be like that about my hair, but I looked like I’d been electrocuted; I had this massive afro. It took me five hours to wash this fucking thing. But I take care of myself. Sometimes I go and have my nails fixed. Girls like it — you have to be groomed. I even shave the ballsack. At one point, before I started to shave it, I used to dye it blue."
But wait, there's more. He exclaimed, "The worst part is bleaching the fucking thing! It was like, ‘Do you wanna meet Papa Smurf?'"
Bathory also has some private dance moves and it involves his... uhh... whammy bar. He described his dancing as "horrible" and went on to say, "As a joke sometimes I moonwalk – you would die laughing! But we do have the happy dance! It’s a private dance that only happens in the bedroom where you spin the whole package around.”
As of this time, Five Finger Death Punch have no touring plans for 2019, but were just announced as one of the headliners for the 2019 INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival taking place in July.
Five Finger Death Punch's latest album, And Justice for None, was released last year.
