About this album

Fantômas is the self-titled debut studio album by American avant-garde metal supergroup Fantômas. It was released on April 26, 1999, and was the first album released on Ipecac Recordings. The cover depicts the Spanish poster for the 1965 French movie Fantômas se déchaîne, translated in Spanish as “Fantômas amenaza al mundo” (“Fantômas threatens the world”). Because of this, some people refer to this album as Amenaza al Mundo; however, it is officially self-titled. The album is designed to serve as a soundtrack to a comic book. All songs written by Mike Patton. Track 13 is not listed, as thirteen is considered an unlucky number. There is no song on this track, simply the fading out of a cymbal from “Book 1: Page 12”, the previous track. The next Fantômas album, The Director’s Cut, also has silence in place of track 13. Greg Prato of Allmusic said, “if you’re looking for something completely original and cutting edge, Fantômas is highly recommended”.

    The "GURK!" noise in this sounds identical (or near to) the one near the end of 'Nothing Gets Nothing' by American Head Charge. Is it just me or do I suspect a sampling?

    I have to agree Themole85! Shaunography: I'm beginning to think you're right. This may very well be their best.
