Faith No More Sol Invictus
The naysayers are fucking trippin', this album is
amazing. It's no Angel Dust or King For A Day (and
really 20+ years later who was expecting that), but
it's solidly better than AOTY or any of the pre-
Patton material easy, and sonically stands on its
own in Faith No More's discography while retaining
all the things you like about them. Separation
Anxiety, Superhero, title track, Sunny Side Up,
Matador and Cone Of Shame all ripppppp hard and
should silence anyone who thinks this band isn't
still a creative force.
Finch (US) Back to Oblivion
After a nine year break between albums, Finch returns with Back To Oblivion. The album
generally blends the darker melodies and maturity of SHTS with the simpler, more melodic
stylings of WIITB, but overall it sounds more like a natural evolution of what they were
going for on the s/t EP. If any criticism can be leveled towards it, I'd say it's a
little too safe in certain parts (Alex Pappas is a huge backward step from either Drew or
Marc on drums) and lacks the intensity and creativity of SHTS, but it's still a very solid,
well-crafted album.
Strung Out Transmission.Alpha.Delta
Strung Out put out another great (if slightly
predictable) release. It's not really any different
from what they were doing on Blackhawks or Agents -
Transmission.Delta.Alpha is full of great songs, jam
packed full of fiery interesting guitar work,
fantastic vocals and excellent drumming that sits
comfortably near the top of the genre. Strung Out
have a tried-and-true sound that works well for them
but their strict adherence to it is the band's
undoing at times in that the album has a very
general sound that doesn't stray far from the
template of past re

  • donaldo11 Thanks for the rec. Yeah Forus is great, listen to them all the time. Another punk band doing some really good stuff is called Lipona. Check them out if you get a chance.

  • donaldo11 Oh hey forgot to mention this in my responses to the Strung Out review, but given your tastes in music I have a feeling you might really enjoy an Australian band called Anchors. They are doing some pretty great stuff that closely resembles A Wilhelm Scream....kind of.
