Faith No More – “Motherfucker”

The great alt-metal band Faith No More announced in September that they were hard at work on a new album to be released in 2015 — their first since 1997’s Album Of The Year — which would be preceded by a Record Store Day 7″ with an A-side called “Motherfucker.” (The B-side is a J.G. Thirwell remix of the track.) That song was initially debuted at BST Festival in July, but today, a studio version arrives. It’s probably intended as a warmup for the LP, and is thus sort of a throwaway for the band, but sonically and structurally, “Motherfucker” sounds like vintage FNM, owing largely to Mike Patton’s remarkable vocal range and attack. It’s not going to make anyone forget Angel Dust, but it might make some people remember Angel Dust, and it sets a pretty high bar for the new album. Listen.
