The Irish media with the honorable exception of Metal Ireland has heretofore ignored the release of Sol Invictus but leading music site State has now posted a lengthy and positive review.
The give the album 4/5 and State state:
“The things is that they’re just unique, no one else really sounds like FNM, and all the Black Sabbath cover versions in the world can’t hide the fact that they can’t help but sound like themselves. Their peculiar chemistry is exactly what I wanted from this record. Sneering, sardonic, loud, hyperactive, unable to stick in any one musical rut. And Patton, he’s still weird, he’s still angry, even if he’s not. He’s still got it. They all do. Thank god.”
The full review is well worth a read.
