Faith No More

With their fusion of heavy metal, funk, hip-hop, and progressive rock, Faith No More have earned a substantial cult following. By the time they recorded their first album in 1985, the band had already had a string of lead vocalists, including Courtney Love; their debut, We Care a Lot, featured Chuck Mosley's abrasive vocals but was driven by Jim Martin's metallic guitar. Faith No More's next album, 1987's Introduce Yourself, was a more cohesive and impressive effort; for the first time, the rap and metal elements didn't sound like they were fighting each other.

In 1988, the rest of the band fired Mosley; he was replaced by Bay Area vocalist Mike Patton during the recording of their next album, The Real Thing. Patton was a more accomplished vocalist, able to change effortlessly between rapping and singing, as well as adding a considerably more bizarre slant to the lyrics. Besides adding a new vocalist, the band had tightened its attack and the result was the genre-bending hit single "Epic," which established them as a major hard rock act.

Following up the hit wasn't as easy, however. Faith No More followed their breakthrough success with 1992's Angel Dust, one of the more complex and simply confounding records ever released by a major label. Although it sold respectably, it didn't have the crossover potential of the first album. When the band toured in support of the album, tensions between the band and Martin began to escalate; rumors that his guitar was stripped from some of the final mixes of Angel Dust began to circulate. As the band was recording its fifth album in early 1994, it was confirmed that Martin had been fired from the band.

Faith No More recorded King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime with Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance. During tour preparations he was replaced by Dean Menta. Menta only lasted for the length of the King for a Day tour and was replaced by Jon Hudson for 1997's Album of the Year. Upon the conclusion of the album's supporting tour, Faith No More announced they were disbanding in April 1998. Patton, who had previously fronted Mr. Bungle and had avant-garde projects with John Zorn, formed a new band named Fantômas with Melvins guitarist Buzz Osbourne, Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Roddy Bottum continued with his band Imperial Teen, who released their first album, Seasick, in 1996. A posthumous Faith No More retrospective, Who Cares a Lot, appeared in late 1998.

In 2009, after 11 years of dissolution, Faith No More staged a reunion tour, playing festivals in Europe and scattered American dates; Jim Martin did not participate, but Jon Hudson and the rest of the band's 1988 lineup took part. As the band continued to play shows, speculation grew concerning the possibility of a new studio album, and in November 2014, the band confirmed the rumors with the release of a single, "Motherf**ker," titled with their typical cheek. In May 2015, Faith No More released their first album since 1997, Sol Invictus, through Reclamation Records, a label distributed by Patton's Ipecac imprint; the band supported the release with an extensive tour of the United States, Europe, and South America. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

They really have too many great songs in their catalog to mention each an every one. With the diverse vocals of Mike Patton, driven my the talents founding members Billy Gould and Mike Bordin ( bass and drums respectively ) and the melancholy to whimsical keyboards of Roddy Bottum they created a fusion sound that's borrowed by many after them.

fly too high fall too far. I really like and respect fnm but the newest cd was a far cry from listenable, maybe instead of being in two many other bands and pumping out music at such a rate that quality has to take a major hit, mike n company should try to make a cd worth their talent

Angle dust was that album that actually scared me and totally hooked me like only a few other albums did. Still does the trick, but Mr bungle shows how messed up (in a good way) Mike pattons geuinus is.

Faith No More is kicks a**. They have their own unique sound with the keyboards, heavy guitar, awesome bass player & drummer, and Mike Pattons voice. None of their songs sound the same. Each song has a different sound to it. unlike a lot of other bands, a lot of times, their songs all sound similar.

I didn't like them when they first received airplay and still don't. Thumbs down

The similar artists section for FNM here is a f**king joke !! They honestly I believe had no idea how to approach finding anyone similar to M.Patton and the boys , they might've started with Butthole Surfers , Bad Brains a lol' closer maybe

Mike Patton may have the most octaves of any rock singer, but I can sing really high pitched, or really low pitched. Still, Epic is an awesome song!

I'm so glad they are touring again. I bought my tix for the Atlanta show the day they went on sale. Technically it was the day before they went on sale to the general public. It won't be too much longer now. Three weeks or so.

Mike is a certifiable genius, as are most of the members of the band. Nothing could have made me happier then when I found out just a few months ago that they are back together w/a new album rapped up & due out within the next few months, then a tour to follow, it doesn't get much better than this!
