Drummer Dave Lombardo To Resurrect Fantomas For Chile’s RockOut

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

Star-studded noise-mongers Fantomas featuring ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo have been confirmed for the first-ever RockOut festival, set to take place December 6 at Espacio Broadway in Santiago, Chile.

In a recent interview with Prog Sphere, Lombardo stated about Fantomas: “It’s one of the most amazing groups ever. I love that band. And I hope that Mike will say, ‘Let’s do this [again]!’ My door is open. Mike and I, you know, we communicate. We have a great friendship.”

Speaking to A.V. Club in 2008, Patton was asked if there was “still action with” Fantomas. “It’s slowed down a little bit because we’ve gotten distracted with other things, but I’ve started writing a new record,” he said. “It’s gonna be a bit of a stretch for us. I want to try to make an all-electronic record. I’m trying to figure out how to do that, the practicalities of doing that. So I don’t think it will be out [for some time], but the band is still very much in my mind.”

The brainchild of Patton, “Fantômas” is an anti-hero from a series of pre-WWI French crime novels, sometimes dubbed the “lord of terror.”

Fantomas’ latest album, “Suspended Animation”, came out in June 2005. The effort contained 30 tracks, each titled after a different day in the month of April.

Fantomas’ three previous releases regaled listeners with a sci-fi homage (“Fantômas”, 1999), a celebration of the best in film composition (“Director’s Cut”, 2001) and a one-song album (“Delirium Cordia”, 2004).

    For meJay z had some signatures. tarkcs like can’t knock the hustle ft mary j.(the video conveyed more emotion than the song in my opinion) and i have to admit i loved girls girls girls. grooves that would want to take you off your ass and grind with any hot honey in a club. Tracks like adina howard, jodeci, tlc (first album) they were not cerebral. just so godamn sensual. but a bit of cerebral is great. so i guess like any art (i mean music paintings movies etc) you check it cus you either wanna think fuck or feel or have a kinship with it.. or watch lynch’s eraserhead to take your psyche to a new level. the first time i saw it, i thought maybe another fuckin typical lynch dreamlike interpetation. That film gave me emotions, that i never knew existed. I’ve been to hell and back in my mind, so i thought this movie would not even touch the sides!!! fuckin hell .anyway back to jay z niggaz in paris does nothing for me! i even checked out the lyrics to find some gems amongst!! no no no it was like listening to that fuckin daft tune- call me call me produced by eric pratz???? Wasn’t that pile of shit of monetary genius on radio airplay for nearly 3 years ?
