Tomahawk is an experimental alternative metal/alternative rock supergroup from the United States. They formed in 2000 when Fantômas, ex-Mr. Bungle and Faith No More singer/keyboardist Mike Patton and ex-The Jesus Lizard guitar player Duane Denison started swapping tapes with the intention of collaborating. Duane Denison then recruited ex-Helmet drummer John Stanier (currently playing ... Read more in Amazon's Tomahawk Store

5.0 out of 5 stars a kick in the ears. 28 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
this album is so so so strange its unbelivable. its the equivalent to walking down a dark country lane with a shadow jumping through the trees. i bought the album because i loved the musical insanity of fantomas with this album the weirdness has being stepped up a level. when you listen to this album you know you are letting go of normal musics hand and are being bundled off into the back of a van where your eardrums are transportad to a lunatic asylum. by all rights this album just shouldnt work at all but it does, it works magnificentley.
mike patton is as ever the most vocally versatile man on the planet. a strangely magnetic album from a supergroup of intense talent.
mit gas is a work of genius.
roll on their third album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scalping The Mainstream Competition 7 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
From the very moment you hear the opening of the slow boiling Birdsong you know Mike Patton is going to take you for a hell of a ride! It sets the tone for the rest of the album, dark and broody...the type of music to make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end. Rape This Day is the stand out track on the album, truely powerful. This outting fom Tomahawk is more polished than their previous offering and it's obvious that this "super group" are gelling! Fans of rock, metal, and alternative this album is for you! Take a walk on dark side.

5.0 out of 5 stars The flipside of Americana further exposed... 25 April 2007
By Matt Pucci VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
On one level, Mit Gas is simply another great Mike Patton record. Tomahawk may be guitarist Duane Denison's baby, it's Patton's oral antics that will no doubt capture the attention of the majority of fans and leave them agape, as he delivers his most thrilling, accessible and diverse vocal performance since Faith No More's Angel Dust. But to ignore the contribution of the three other players on this extraordinary album would be unjust, as each member plays an equally strong hand on this sophomore effort from the world's least famous 'supergroup'...

As a siren wails somewhere in the distance, the misleadingly chirpy sound of a dawn chorus marks opener 'Birdsong', setting the tone for the entire album with Kevin Rutmanis' menacing bass-line and John Stanier's powerhouse drumming - before Patton takes over with a vocal that sounds suspiciously like he's strangling himself. Obviously, this is awesome, and the rest of the album is similarly jaw-dropping: a veritable smorgasbord of sonic delights, which includes the majestic 'Rape This Day', the gleefully twisted 'Harelip', the heart-felt, Spanish-sung 'Desastre Natural' (which may or not be about the break-up of Patton's marriage) and the explosive drum 'n' bass-meets-punk-metal centrepiece of 'Capt. Midnight'.

The best thing about Mit Gas, however, is the fact that you can actually visualise the whole array of facial expressions Patton was making as he recorded this and in this sense Tomahawk have succeeded in creating a truly cinematic record. Roll on album number three!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomahawk - now With added Gas! 14 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album begins with the sound of birds singing, and as an intro it couldn't be more decieving. When the drums and bass of "Birdsong" finally kick in you realise this is the dark path Duane Denison and his deranged lieutenants Mike Patton, John Stainer and Kevin Rutmanis are taking you down. The sinister musical stylings continue throughout the track, with Patton singing "The way you look at me when you're hunted." ...Well what were you expecting? Epic?
The next track, and call to arms that is "Rape This Day", introduces the faster, more punk-rock side of Mit Gas. This is a welcome addition to the musical cannon of Tomahawk, and nicely contradicts the deranged country music of their self-titled debut. Look out for the video for this track, it's Patton's first since FNM! "May Day" then comes along to show you that intelligent rock music does exist, and that it can be twice as catchy as whatever radio is playing at the moment. This track features the line "We are the police and now we're gonna start a riot." What is it with this band and the police? First their on stage uniforms and now their lyrics, I for one am beggining to get worried. "Capt. Midnight" begins with some drum and bass beats accompanying Mike Patton's beat box vocals, and this is the first sign of Patton's innovative genius on this record.
As with all Patton's projects, it's his vocals that ultimately steal the show. He is undoubtedly the finest vocalist of his generation and his vocals haven't been as seductively melodic in a long time, being more Faith No More than Fantomas. And on "When The Stars Begin To Fall" he hasn't put his voice to anything this 'pop' in a long time. This track has the album's best chorus, Mike Patton barking "Night crawler, tightrope walker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fizzy 29 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
I won't bore you with how brilliant Mike Patton is; I'll leave you to find that out for yourself via the practically faultless Ipecac label he co-owns, and his myriad collaborations with everybody from art-jazzer John Zorn to apocalyptic punks The Dillinger Escape Plan.
I suppose you could call Tomahawk a supergroup, if you wanted to. Four indie-rock giants (Melvins/Cows bassist Kevin Rutmanis, ex-Jesus Lizard gutarist Duane Denison, former Helmet drummer John Stanier and the godlike Patton) simply having some fun together. No hassle, no pressure. It shows. It's effortlessly, impressively huge.
This is Tomahawk's second album. It is breathtaking at times. Opener 'Birdsong' starts like an alternative theme for 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', all Texas heat and an almost palpable air of menace, with the sound of small birds tweeting before the drums begin a relentless skittering, and Rutmanis' bass oozes out a droning riff. Minutes later, the song explodes into colour, and we're off on a perverse ride into Patton County.
Elsewhere, there's clever, angular punk-rock on the likes of 'Rape This Day' and 'Mayday', and tape-loop ambient frighteners like 'Harlem Clowns', but the standout track is surely 'Capt. Midnight', wherein Patton lulls us into a dark world over skittling drum & bass and lonely tremolo guitar, before unleashing a juggernaut of a chorus.
The whole album has a creepy cinematic feeling, one of late-night backroads deep inside America, where the shadows are full of people up to no good, and cars are filled with lonely, weird, desperate people. Possibly with a body in the trunk.
Investigate this album.
