If you would’ve told me that Mike Patton had started yet another band, and it was a speed metal polka fusion¬†project he was doing for the next¬†Avengers film, I’d have taken you more serious than if you told me there was a new Faith No More album. ¬†It’s been almost two decades since there was a full-length from the gang, and between Patton’s Tomahawk, Fantomas, Mr. Bungle and the 538 other bands he’s making music in, the odds aren’t in their favor. ¬†Yet, here we are. ¬†2015, meet Sol Invictus.¬† It means “Unconquered Sun”. ¬†Way to set your aim high here, guys. ¬†I mean, you’ve conquered pretty much everything else.
Faith No More, regardless of which frontman (or woman) you think is superior, have been one of the most successful crossover rock bands in history. ¬†They trudged through rap, metal, punk, noise and countless others to fuse some¬†of the most unique and influential racket¬†of the last 30 years. ¬†Their albums still sound forward-thinking today, and they refused to play by anyone’s rules.
And their appearance on ‘Hanging with MTV’ in 1992 is still the best damn thing that channel ever released. ¬†Watch the last minute:
So who knows how limited this vinyl is, but who cares? ¬†It’s Faith No More. ¬†Get it or get out of the way. ¬†If you don’t want it, I’ll buy your copy.
