Quick Breakdown of Faith No More’s Epic
There’s good news for those of you who haven’t been able to invest an hour in listening to the instrument-by-instrument deconstruction of Faith No More’s Epic.
As well as his hour-long Session each Sunday, Christian James Hand also does a 10-15 minute Studio Session with Frosty, Heidi, and Frank on Monday mornings.
Here’s a whirlwind look at Faith No More’s Epic.
And for those who haven’t had a chance to listen to the full session, you can check it out below.
Another Review of tētēma performance
TheMusic.com.au recently reviewed Mike Patton and Anthony Pateras’ recent performance as tētēma. Here’s a piece of what they had to say.
Essentially, what Tetema delivered the crowd was a behemoth wall of sound. It was as though the crowd had just rocked up to a jam session and Tetema invited everyone to stick around for a bit. Of course, it only felt that way because of the experimental nature of the Tetema sound. Percussion is front and centre, fusions of exotic sounding drums and tones meaning that Patton’s vocals are largely another layer to that percussion.
Predominantly making noises that didn’t seem entirely human, Patton was led by composer Anthony Pateras, who faced the singer rather than the audience for most of the show. Only on a couple of tracks was Patton’s distinctive singing voice a feature. That man can scream like no other. There were a few Mr Bungle-esque moments, but Tetema is its own unique, hairy beast.
