Biography

California PA, United States (1998 – present)

Fantômas is an band from California, USA formed in 1998 when Mike Patton, previously famous for the multi-million selling Faith No More and heroes Mr. Bungle, composed a handful of songs. Patton then sent the original compositions to musicians he thought would be right for the job, guitarist Buzz Osborne (of outfit Melvins), his childhood friend and ex-bandmate bassist Trevor Dunn (of Mr. Bungle) and drummer Igor Cavalera (from band Sepultura), but Cavalera rejected his offer. Instead, Dave Lombardo (from Slayer) joined on drums, thus his own dream group, Fantômas, was born. Patton named the group after an anti-hero featured in a series of crime novels popular in France before World War I.

    I already have my Wunderkammer box set, I highly recommend that everyone should have one! Or at least the very very fans. The LP's artwork is amazing, the cassette demo is truly incredible, I think it's the best box set i've bought. Fantômas are doing it right. Now we just have to wait another album. :(

    That's a tough call but I'd start investigating ebay or some indie vinyl retailers.
