For some reason, there’s nothing Mike Patton does or has done that I don’t love. From Mr. Bungle and Faith No More to Lovage and his multi-faceted General Patton project, I have no complaints.
How many artists can you say that about? Opeth? Godflesh? Carcass? Cave In? Dillinger Escape Plan? I mean, there aren’t many I can think of off hand.
Anyways, if you want to see Mike do something unique, head for the end of this post, and watch some video from his performance with Mondo Cane at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile, late last month.
It’s not metal, but hey — we’re all about broadening horizons. Give it a try. Or at the very least, play it for your dad or mom. They might dig it…especially if they’re from the old contact.
