Faith No More Vancouver reviews

The reviews are in from Faith No More‘s Sol Invictus tour opener in Vancouver:

Vancouver Sun

“It was a bizarre, carnival-esque rebirth peppered with Patton’s punk-metal growls and characteristic sense of humour, and mixed with Faith No More’s genre-bending style of rock. Epic? Certainly.”

CTV

“The blend of old and new would prove to be a theme throughout the night. Oddness was another: the band’s flair for the weird reflected in both Patton’s between song banter (“Anybody got an espresso maker around here?) and new tracks like the Radiohead-tinged minor key “Sunny Side Up.”
Not to say that Faith No More weren’t firing when the moments to rock hard and heavy were due. A pounding “Epic” arrived just six tracks into the night, and a brilliant “Midlife Crisis” followed just four songs later, amended and extended by a funky breakdown halfway through as Patton channelled a bizarre version of James Brown, “Hit me one time! Hit me two times! Hit me 18 times!”

Concert Addicts

Photo gallery this time but some text too: “After a song to shake off the new-tour rust, the whole band was firing on all cylinders. Mike Patton absolutely blew me away. His vocals, his charisma, his amazing intensity, it was all just so perfect. I waited many years to see this band perform, and I was humbled by their display.

Roddy Bottum speaks ahead of Vancouver tour bow

April 13th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Tour dates|0 Comments

Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum had spoken to Vancouver paper The Province ahead of the band beginning their North American tour bow in the BC city tomorrow night.

 

In the short piece Roddy speaks about the recording return, the varied tastes of the group and the new album. He states: “As much as the next fan, I usually find groups that meant something to me in the past reforming and recording again can be cringe-inducing and I’m a bit scared to go there. But we came back with something that I’m really happy with. We’re not really concerned with the financial end of things but are all really serious about the music we’re making.”

And interviewer Stuart Derdeyn also describes the album in snippets:
“As ever, the 10 tracks run the gamut of searing metal, funk rock, quirky psychedelia and no rap-rock.” 

“Sol Invictus actually moves away from synthesizers and focuses on piano in tracks such as arena chant Sunny Side Up or thrashy Black Friday.”
