Zoltan Bathory was raised in Szentendre, a town near Budapest, in Hungary. When he became devoted to a music career, he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he played bass guitar for the alternative band called U.P.O. However, he quit the following year, but stayed in music, and in 2005, he founded the heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch, which is established in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their debut record was recorded the next year, with a little help from the guitarist and producer Logan Mader, and soon after they finished recording the album, the band signed a contract with talent management company The Firm, and their debut album entitled “The Way of the Fist” was released in 2007. The album immediately struck a chord with the public, as it was sold over 600,000 copies, and spawned three singles which reached the Top 10 of the Billboard charts. This certainly increased Bathory’s net worth, and encouraged him to continue to make music.

Like the previous album, this one was successful as well, as it made its debut in 7th place on the Billboard chart, and furthermore it stayed in the Top 100 for a record 92 weeks. Although being a huge success, the album is not a hallmark of their career, as their third album – “American Capitalist” (2010) – became even more successful, as it debuted on 3rd place of the Billboard top 200 chart, and in addition it was certified gold in its first year of sales, increasing further Bathory’s net worth. Their next album was released in 2013; in fact, they released a double album “The Wrong Side Of, Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, Volumes 1 and 2”. Thanks to their previous success, and an increase in popularity, the band made a few friends over the years, and managed to extend the friendships on professional field, as the album featured guest artists such as Rob Halford, Max Cavalera and Maria Brink, among others.
Bathory’s latest venture in the music industry is the sixth album of the band, entitled “Got Your Six” (2015), which has also added to his net worth, as it also debuted at number 2 on the billboard Top 200 chart.
