Wow. 5 Faith No More albums for a shade under a tenner. Thought this was well worthy of a HUKD post.
San Francisco's Faith No More began dispensing their funk-laden thrash metal in the early 1980s with vocalist Chuck Moseley. When tensions led to the firing of Moseley, the band found a fitting replacement in Mr. Bungle frontman Mike Patton. Their classic-rock guitar riffs, slap-happy bass playing, atmospheric keyboards, and tribal drumming, alongside Patton's vocal gymnastics, proved to be a winning combination. FNM's 1989 album, THE REAL THING, became a surprise hit the following year. In 1992, the group released their masterpiece, ANGEL DUST, and embarked on a world tour with Gun N' Roses and Metallica. After the departure of guitarist Jim Martin, Faith No More released two more albums and called it a day in 1998. Since then, band members have gone on to numerous other projects, most notably Patton's Fantomas and Tomahawk collaborations.
