Fantomas

So named in honor of the anti-hero of a series of legendary French crime novels, Fantômas was formed by singer Mike Patton in the wake of the breakup of his previous band, Faith No More. After cutting a rough demo in early 1998, Patton recruited Melvins guitarist Buzz Osborne, Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo to flesh out the recording. The group then played their debut show in San Francisco in mid-June of that year, as the group's record debut was a cacophonous cover of T. Rex's "Chariot Choogle" for the compilation Great Jewish Music: Marc Bolan in 1998 (issued on John Zorn's Tzadik label), and toured throughout the summer. Spring 1999 saw the release of Fantômas' self-titled debut album (the very first release on Patton's newly formed record label, Ipecac), which was followed by more touring. By tour's end, Fantômas was briefly put on hold as its members returned to their other bands, but by early 2001, the quartet had recorded a second album. Titled The Director's Cut, the album featured reworked covers of movie themes, including The Godfather, Cape Fear, and Rosemary's Baby, among others (the band planned on including a version of "What a Feeling" from Flashdance, but had to cut it at the last second due to legal problems). The band spent the remainder of 2001 touring behind the album, as Patton hinted that the group may go directly back into the studio by year's end to work on an album of all-new material. The new studio material was put on the back burner while Fantômas and Melvins performed together live as a seven-piece supergroup, "the Fantômas Melvins Big Band," releasing Millennium Monsterwork in April 2002. Finally, in early 2004 Fantômas released the haunting epic Delirium Cordia. The following year, Suspended Animation, a concept album about the month of April 2005 whose sound returned to the band's metal-horror roots, came out. ~ Jason Ankeny & Greg Prato, Rovi

This band always reminds me of my childhood because my parents always played them. Oh nostalgia.
yer mom likes mike patton
Bow down before the mighty Fantomas---l e s t you be killed... or at least horribly maimed.
Fantomas is the most forward thinking revolutionar y band in recent history.
I'd know Mike Patton's voice anywhere.
Sweet Tits!
fantomas is like beef jerky. when its done right it is flavorful and somewhat chewy.
wow jay for someone who fancies himself as well informed i would have guessed you would have known about this band. makes me think.
I'm commenting again because it's been three months and I want you to know that I still like Fantomas.

So yep... alrighty there you go.
just saw the dvd of 5-1-06 in london.. WOW it was almost too much.. beautiful crazy
I saw the debut performance @ Slim's. Sorry, had to brag.
I saw Fantomas live several times. The first was before I'd even heard the first album. I just went based on Patton and Lombardo. It was always amazing to watch them so intensely focused. That show revitalized my interest in music when I had hit a personal lull. Yay fantomas!
MIKE PATTON IS THE BEST VOCALIST IN THE WORLD!
angel of anarchy doesn't know the good s**t! fantomas are the s**t! especially the fantomas melvins big band.
This band had BETTER drop into my radio station soon!

Like everything else Patton touches, Fantomas is gold
good music if you have an ear for the slightly different, I say put the Directors Cut album on during Halloween and let it play, it tends to scare my friends or at least make them think I'm on the edge of sanity, which usually seems to be a good thing
