Faith No More

Profilo:
Faith No More was formed after the breakup of Faith. No Man.. They underwent several lineup changes including a period of where they would play 'open mic' shows where they'd invite people to take on vocal duties. Courtney Love and Paula Frazer were two of the temporary vocalists which occasioned the mic at these shows.

Finally they settled on Chuck Mosley (Vocals), Roddy Bottum (Keyboards), Billy Gould (Bass Guitar), Mike Bordin (drums) and Jim Martin (Guitar). They released their debut album 'We Care A Lot' on Mordam Records in 1985.

They were signed to Slash Records and released Introduce Yourself in 1987. This album spawned their first hit We Care A lot. Due to tensions within the band Chuck Mosley was fired prior to the recording of their third studio album The Real Thing. Mosley was replaced by Mike Patton.

The Real Thing was released in 1989 to critical and commercial acclaim. It featured another rock/rap hit called 'Epic' plus a string of other minor hit singles. 'The Real Thing' was the first album by the band to achieve platinum sales figures in the US.

Their fourth studio album 'Angel Dust' the second with new vocalist Mike Patton. The album met critical success and is often deemed their most important record. It is often cited as the album which gave birth to Nu-Metal. This album’s darker themes; frequent genre changes Patton's maturation and vocal versatility was a drastic shift in artistic direction and saw another rift open, often publically between the band and guitarist Jim Martin. Jim Martin was sacked via fax following the 'Angel Dust' tour in late 1993.

In 1995 after auditioning several guitarists including Killing Joke's Geordie Walker, the band hired Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance and recorded 'King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime'. Trey Spruance completed the record but made it clear that touring the record would not be possible. The band hired Dean Menta to fill in for the tour. The album had a mixed critical response which was followed by lukewarm album sales which led to the cancellation of part of their 1995 European tour.

During the writing for 'Album Of The Year' the band replaced Dean Menta with Billy Gould's former room-mate Jon Hudson. Hudson was heavily involved in the writing of the album, helping with all three of the released singles from 'Album of The Year'. The album was received well both critically and commercially compared to 'King For A Day' but it became clear that due to conflicting side projects that Faith No More would either have to end or be put on hiatus. With Mike Bordin joining Black Sabbath, Mike Patton committed to Mr. Bungle for the foreseeable future and Roddy Bottum moonlighting with Imperial Teen the band chose to split amid weeks of rumour and speculation. The announcement was made by Billy Gould via email on April 20th 1998.

On February 24, 2009 the band announced their reunion as a touring entity. Between 2011 and in 2014 they played three new songs. In September 2014 they announced that a Warner Bros. agreed to formally end their recording contract which allowed them to launch their new label Reclamation! Recordings which would release a new single in November 2014 and an album in April 2015.

Faith No More is for me, one of the most overrated band in the history of rock music. Something like The Police,The Smiths. They mixed some styles but...for what?
