A series of interviews with Mike Bordin, Roddy and Bill, celebrating the anniversaries of Introduce Yourself, Album of the Year, and Angel Dust have been recorded with The Pit.
Along with being one of the most memorable records of the ’90s, Faith No More‘s Angel Dust is a record that would go on to reshape the landscape of heavy metal. Released in June of 1992, the fourth studio album from the alternative metal act was quite a surprise.

Compared to their previous efforts, Angel Dust is an explosive work, presenting a barrage of musical styles; from death metal to rock, to serene ambiance and chaotic tension, the album is a nonstop ride of intrigue.
With this record celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, The Pit wanted to highlight this remarkable achievement. Reaching out to several members of Faith No More and asked them a variety of questions about the album. The Pit spoke with drummer Mike Bordin, keyboardist Roddy Bottum, and bassist Billy Gould.
The group ended up sharing tracks off the record that mean a lot to them, cool stories behind the record’s creation, their tour with Metallica and Guns N’ Roses, and much more. You can check out the full video interview featuring the members of Faith No More talking about Angel Dust below.
