Fantomas - Delirium Cordia Review

by Matt Hensch

Being a big Fantomas fan, I must say I was really disappointed in Delirium Cordia. After hearing about this album, I thought it would be amazing, but I was dead wrong. Delirium Cordia is one song that lasts for almost an hour and fifteen minutes, but it turned into a complete disaster. It's safe to say that Delirium Cordia is Mike Patton's most shameful work to date.

Standing at almost seventy-five minutes, "Surgical Sound Specimens From The Musuem Of Skin" is nothing more then a collection of strange, annoying sounds that repeat over and over until this abomination ends. The work of instruments is also terrible, mainly because Buzz Osbourne's guitar work is almost invisible and Dave Lombardo doesn't get to do his technical drumming like he has in previous Fantomas efforts. The real buzzkill here is Mike Patton. Patton does no good vocal work here. All he does is make these annoying, high pitched moans that are lame and repetitive. The other Fantomas albums at least have Patton making different sounds with his vocals, but the vocals here don't change. Patton's vocal work is the real death blow here, mainly because of the lack of diversity in his voice.

Delirium Cordia is nothing to get hyped up about. This album is proof that Mike Patton, the former Faith No More frontman, the mastermind behind Tomahawk, and the man who spawned "The Director's Cut," could f*** up every now and then. If you want the good Fantomas, get "The Director's Cut" and "Suspended Animation." But do yourself a favor and stay away............far away.
