This album is simply astonishing. With the concept of a comic book in mind (ie. Page 1, 2, 3 etc.) Patton has once again made a great piece of art. While there are no actual words spoken on this album, Patton's vocal noises are sometimes catchier than words, and will have you "singing" along to them. There is a great Boredoms influence on Patton, yet he doesn't copy, he advances much further in the ways of vocal experimentation. There are 30 songs on this album, which clocks in at about 45 minutes, therefore some songs are short yet powerful blasts of experimental metal.

Patton isn't the only great musician to grace us with his presence on Fantomas, as there is also former Slayer drummer, Dave Lombardo, Melvins guitarist King Buzzo, and Patton's Mr. Bungle buddy Trevor Dunn on bass. With is line up like that, there is no doubt that Fantomas is in fact, a supergroup, and this is definately a super album. A great place to start for new fans, and a classic for any fan of any artists present on this album.

*note* Some refer to this album as "Amenaza al Mundo"
