The closest Mike Patton's been to a new Faith No More record
2013 | Label: Ipecac Recordings / The Orchard

Of all the side projects and solo pursuits Mike Patton has indulged in over the past decade, Tomahawk’s fourth album is the closest he’s ever come to releasing another Faith No More record. Not espresso-huffing covers of Italian pop songs (Mondo Cane), or a sparring session with world-renowned turntablists (General Patton vs. The X-Ecutioners), or a faithful nod to Native American music (Tomahawk’s last album, Anonymous) — a Faith No More record. Meaning: 13 songs… read more »

Faith No More or not Faith No More?

Eddie_S

If you liked some of Faith No More's hits, then no this probably isn't. However if you loved all the Patton-era albums, then you may well end up loving this as well. I certainly do.

This Is Not An FNM Record, Pt. II

Triakel

While there are obvious similarities to certain FNM songs (some tracks could have been "Band of the Year" outtakes), this is clearly a Tomahawk record. Perhaps the recent FNM reunion influenced Patton's lyrical contributions, but you won't find goofy Roddy Bottum synth romps or Jim Martin trapeze-guitar acrobatics anywhere on this release. You will find creepy, atmospheric music that rocks hard without being predicable or hackneyed. Every band member is credible in his own right, and "Oddfellows" deserves to be recognized as such. One could easily say "this is the closest Trevor Dunn has been to Mr. Bungle" or "this is the closest John Stanier has been to Helmet" or "this is the closest gelato has *ever* gotten to ice cream." If you like good, imaginative hard rock, then check this out. Thenlisten to some of the other great music these guys have created. And yes, if you really, really liked "King for a Day ..." and wish it was 1996 again, you'll probably like this, too.

This Is Not An FNM Record, Pt. 1

Triakel

I've read several reviews alluding to "Oddfellows" as being almost a Faith No More album. This is either wishful thinking (as in "please, please make another FNM album!") or a well-meaning invitation for FNM fans to check out Mike Patton's latest project (as in "it's not as weird as his other stuff, really!"). I'd characterize "Oddfellows" as a very strong Tomahawk album. While it is a touch more accessible to general audiences than the band's first two outings (and certainly more than its third), all the hallmarks are there -- particularly Duane Denison's slithering, attacking guitar and John Stanier's powerful, precise drumming. Bassist Trevor Dunn occasionally introduces jazz elements that works very well with Tomahawk's sound. (It should, he was an important member of Mr. Bungle and Fantomas and Secret Chiefs 3, and played on the recent Melvin's tour).
