Merkur | Rockavaria: "Faith No More" in the sea of flowers
Munich "Faith No More" are back - although a bit irritating at the beginning. The criticism of the appearance of the legendary band at Rockavaria 2015.
The beginning, at least the stage, is irritating: everything in white, plus a colorful sea of flowers, decorated like at the Congress of the Indian National Party. But then he comes: Mike Patton, the Voice, also in white, but the voice is charismatic, sometimes dirty, sometimes mean, but always clear and unmistakable!
At the start a new song by Sol Invictus, the first new CD in 18 years, then it goes back to the early years! Not everything was better in the past, but a lot hotter! Incomparable is the song Epic, "You want it all, but you can't get it"! Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! We want Faith No More entirely, and we get everything!
Patton's brilliant vocals, Billy Gould's hard-hitting and bombastic bass, the snappy and razor-sharp guitar by Jon Hudson, Mike "Puffy" Bordins precise and yet so furious drums and the keyboard by Roddy Bottum, breaking through the hardest rock with fine harmonies! Any more wishes? No more! Oh yes! As white as the stage was, the music was so black !!!
