Jour 2 à Heavy Montreal : Faith No More et Iggy Pop

"Monrrrrrréal , do you really like heavy metal gold this festival is overrated ? " Was so amused Patton asked at the hearing. The answer was pretty convincing ... Especially near the stage . Because even if the event is dedicated to a genre generally very muscular , participants were surprisingly quiet and relaxed at the site on Saturday night. Good, they seemed not sulk pleasure either. At least for the majority. For some fans of hard music, arms crossed , appeared in scan mode ... Like, " I like or I do not like what I see and hear ? "

Boom! The lively and metal Midlife Crisis ( the other big album, Angel Dust , released in 1992) arrived with her catchy chorus . We should not forget this short passage in which the singer offered some words of the play The Power of Love , Celine Dion. Fun.

Quand métal et punk vont de pair

Faith No More began the evening with the title "Motherfucker," from their new album Sol Invictus, released last May. The training continued with "From Out of Nowhere" taken from The Real Thing and the contagious energy of the group was forwarded to the crowd. The public seemed delighted to hear classics like "Caffeine", "Epic" and "Everything's Ruined". The surprise was to hear a mashup of "Midlife Crisis" interspersed with "The Power Of Love Interlude" Celine Dion, while the singer mimed few vulgar gestures ...

Shortly after singing a new play, "Separation Anxiety", the group interacted with the audience and returned to the riot Stadium, during their last visit to Montreal, 23 years ago. During that famous concert, Metallica could not finish the show due to injury (James Hetfield suffered second degree burns) and Guns N 'Roses, subsequently decided to stop playing after only a few songs. The guys from Faith No More have been careful to say that they had nothing to do with this incident.

It's hard to conjure the beatific command that Roddy Bottum holds, standing over his keyboard like a preacher at his pulpit. It's difficult to explain the chemistry between Jon Hudson and Mike Bordin and Billy Gould, tossing the focal point of a song between them effortlessly. And it's fully impossible to explain what it is like to watch Mike Patton howl, shriek and contort on stage, his slicked-back dark hair becoming wilder and more sweat-soaked with every song. Patton was in a mean mood: "Motherfucker," which they opened with, sounded like even more of a threat than usual, and there was something pointed, even cruel, about his delivery of the bit of "Power of Love" by Celine Dion that served as an intro do "Midlife Crisis."

He seemed to warm to the roaring, ravenous crowd eventually, however, diving into the pit at the end of "Ashes to Ashes" (and theatrically hobbling back to the stage afterwards), and seeming to genuinely mean it when he sang Burt Bacharach's "This Guy's in Love With You" as part of the encore. Faith No More have been doing this for a long time, but their longevity has only made them meaner, more cruel and decadent, with every passing year. Lucky us.
