Fantomas
Fantomas (Ipecac Recordings)

By: Jeb Branin

This is the inaugural CD for the Ipecac label and it certainly is a masterful way to debut. FANTOMAS is a super group of sorts featuring some prominent names from the underground, and not so underground... but after much deliberation I have decided not to mention any names. Why? Well I'm afraid that you will do what I initially did and draw errant conclusions about the sound of this band before even slapping this disc on. And I don't want you to do that because I guarantee you that any preconceived notions you might have are 100% inaccurate. You have never heard anything like this before. FANTOMAS play an over the top avant blend of raging hardcore and industrial jazz insanity. The only band that I can possibly compare this to is GASP. If you like your music to blow your puny brains right out of your head but still be weirder than a three dollar bill in the collection plate then you need this CD now!
