UK music magazine Rock Sound has given Faith No More’s Sol Invictus a 9/10 review in its latest issue.

The magazine, which made the point that it was not around the last time FNM released an album, states:

“Rest assured though, Sol Invictus is no midlife crisis, it’s the real thing.”

“Frothing, deliciously creepy and as idiosyncratic as ever, these are 10 songs that sit proudly alongside anything else this band has produced.”

Cone of Shame is described as Nick Cave-gone-metal and the album is recommended for fans of the Australian auteur plus those of Tomahawk and Tom Waits.
