A super-group of the loosest kind, Tomahawk are the brainchild of Duane Denison, former guitarist of grunge pioneers The Jesus Lizard. On drums is John Stanier, from Helmet, bassist is Kevin Rutmanis, the Melvins mentalist and on vocals/keys is Mike Patton. Anyone unfamiliar with Mr Patton's work post-FNM could do far worse than start here. Easily the most 'conventional' work he has put his name to for quite some time, tomahawk is a more traditional take on rock than Patton is normally associated with. This is not to say it is unoriginal. Far from it, it isn't going to produce a smash top 10 hit that's for sure. It's a madcap album, littered with Patton's unimitable vocals, ranging from heavy breathing psycho grunting- "Sir yes sir" to crooning- "Point and click", and in "Sweet smell of success" we hear Patton at his most deranged and awesome. The voice is still there that's for sure. However, it is Denison who adds the subtle touches that compliment Patton's atmospheric keys. Stanier and Rutmanis add a tight rhythm section which allow Denison and Patton to flourish. Lyrically this as obscure, sinister and intriguing as ever- "The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river" being a notable example from the manic Laredo. An excellent debut album from some of alternative music's unsung heroes. Unlike anything else you will hear, but for Patton beginners a most welcome start.

Bought this album on the promise that it actually contained songs (unlike fantomas) and had an abundance of ideas (like faith no more). As a massive faith no more fan i have been repeatedly diappointed with Mike Patton's musical output since the fall of faith no more. Ok, maybe i don't 'get' fantomas, or perhaps i'll 'grow into' mr. bungle, but the reality is i own albums by both these bands, and they're crap.So i was overjoyed when i bought tomahawk to find it's actually very good. The atmospheric keyboards that inspired a lot of faith no more's sound are intact and add some surreal sonics, along with patton's trademark noises, both of which add to the overall effect. Incidently, this album is utterly deranged, dark and disturbing, like 'angel dust' era faith.. crossed with lo -fi type alt. rock guitars. But don't be fooled - it's as conventional as Patton gets, which, as any patton fan will know, does not mean any hit singles or pop packaged chorus', just a vast imagination,unexpected key changes, nt at any point does the album do what you might expect, but it is precisely this which makes it well worth a listen.

People coming across this album are no doubt fans of (in my opinion) the greatest and most versatile vocalist in modern rock and metal - Mike Patton, and while our wait for Faith No More's 'Sol Invictus' is getting painfully close, I decided to check out this album having already heard their back catalogue.
The sound of this band is quite difficult to define, it morphs from odd, jazzy chords to Tom Morello-esque weird sounds to some quite heavy - but not overtly distorted riffs, whatever it is, it isn't 'traditional' and is definitely a unique and weird sound. Tomahawk has generally been labelled alternative or experimental rock/metal and that's probably a fair account.
The album length is how a good rock record should be, most tracks are under four minutes (apart from two) and just about over 40 minutes, this isn't an over the top indulgent prog album, its short, sharp, strange and gets straight to its twisted point ... whatever that may be!
My favourite tracks are the creepy and frantic 'God Hates A Coward,' the bouncing groovy 'Jockstrap,' opener 'Flashback' and 'POP 1.'
Whilst the riffs probably aren't everyone's cup of tea, Patton's vocal range is simply astonishing. From a quickfire, skat vocals barrage whilst wearing a gas mask to high pitched screams, to rhythmic breathing sounds ... I struggle to think of anything vocally he can't do!
Though this is a great album and has many surreal highlights, it doesn't quite top 'Mit Gas' in my opinion which is my favourite Tomahawk album. It is not as accessible as Faith No More, not as heavy as Mr. Bungle or as fringe or inaccessible as Fantomas (but is pretty far out). That said, any fans of Mike Patton's weird greatness should make this album a must buy on their list.

The styles of songs on this album are very diverse and ranging from straight gritty rock, to claustraphobic lounge music. It's dark and edgy at times but always compelling listening. Mike (Faith No More) Patton's vocals are sublime!!!!

There seems little need to wax lyrical about the cult status of Mike Patton anymore - he's becoming so famous for his sublime vocal talents, production prowess and eclectic tastes without many people actually hearing his work that he's becoming infamous. For those who don't, won't or can't stomach Patton's more experimental side, Tomahawk is heralded as a return to the more song-oriented Faith No More material. In other words more traditional song structures with discernible progressions and actual words that are sung. Duane Denison is the real architect behind Tomahawk, and whilst his song writing here doesn't radically break new ground, it is better than anything else you'll here in this genre. And with a rhythm section comprised of one Melvin and one Helmet we're talking about solid creative performers here. But the real excitement here, as if you couldn't guess already, is Patton. Patton still growls, tenors, hollers, screams and barks through each song, but it's the lyrics and vocal melodies that surprise by their standard. Patton is best when he's cocky and camp in the same breath, and he frequently does both all throughout songs with often uncomfortably dark subject matter. Flashback has him grinding through a chorus of "did they make you wear a dress did they?" whilst Pop 1 erupts into a cacophonous "this beat will win me a Grammy" scream. Add that the superb 101 North is the best song you will ever hear about car-jacking. What truly makes the record though is the production - something Patton doesn't get enough credit for. The subtle touches and inventive use of sampling throughout breathes new depth into each song. The sound is beautifully crisp and you will often find yourself listening to how the album sounds rather than the songs themselves - a ral sign of good production. All in all Tomahawk greatly enhances the reputations of everyone involved - no small feat considering the talent on offer.
