Faith No More at Roskilde reviews

July 6, 2009

Faith No More played their earliest festival slot on Friday at 5pm at the iconic Roskilde Festival in Denmark. A review in Dutch site Het Parool reported that Mike Patton kicked off proceedings with a defiant “Enjoy the show hippies” and while acknowledging the “pure beauty” of the FNM show, the review also criticises Mike P’s cynicism and teasing.

Leading Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet gave a largely positive review, saying that the band brought “creative funk metal and absurd cover versions to the main stage” even if they were unable to shatter the siesta atmosphere of the early evening audience.

Leading Danish site BT only rated the FNM show 2 out of 6 in its review and concluded that “time and humour are clearly over for Faith No More”.

Jyllands Posten was more favourable with its review giving FNM 4 out of 6.

    I wish journalists would stop filing FNM as “funk metal”. Assigning bands to genres is dumb enough without using dumb genre names. “Funk metal” makes me think of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I hate these douchebags.
