** And their last album "Suspended Animation"... is probably the MindScrew-iest of all. There are two concepts to this album. 1. The album served as a calendar for the month of April (For Example: Track one is April 1st: April Fool's Day), and 2. The album is full of sound effects from Creator/FisherPrice toys and Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons... Yep.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Crossover}}: On New Years Eve 2000, they collaborated with [[{{Music/Melvins}} Buzzo's band]] to form "The Fantômas Melvins Big Band". So basically, a super-{{supergroup}}.

** [[SelfTitledAlbum "Fantômas"]] is meant to be like a comic book, every track to 30 has "page" and the number of the track beside it.

* CoverAlbum: The Director's Cut.
* EpicRocking: Delirium Cordia, if we could count it, considering it's only one track.
* MinimalisticCoverart: Delirium Cordia's cover art is just a flatline with a beep in the end, with the tile of the album below and the band name above.
* MinisculeRocking: Basically all of their songs (except for The Director's Cut and Delirium Cordia) which lasts 1-2 minutes
** But none can match to the [[ThirteenIsUnlucky tracks that have the number 13]]. The one in the SelfTitledAlbum is basically the fading out of a cymbal from Page 12. And the next album The Director's Cut is just pure silence.


** [[SelfTitledAlbum Fantômas]] is meant to be like a comic book, every track to 30 has "page" and the number of the track beside it.
** The Director's Cut is a CoverAlbum of horror film themes (with the occasional odd one out). For example: Film/RosemarysBaby, [[Film/TheGolem Der Golem]], Film/TheOmen and Film/HenryPortraitOfASerialKiller.
** Delirium Cordia is a soundtrack to a surgery without anestethic and is only a single track.

The bands musical style is a mixture of DeathMetal, AvantGardeMetal and {{Grindcore}}, because most of their songs (excluding The Director's Cut) last about 1-2 minutes, with the somewhat occasional 3-4 minute song. They also have scat-like singing, instead of conventional singing. Even one critic said they were {{Dada}}-Metal because of their unique style of playing.

The band actually started as a little side project of Mike, just before the collapse of Music/FaithNoMore. He recorded a set of demos by himself and sent to [[{{Music/Melvins}} Buzz]], [[Music/MrBungle Trevor]] and [[{{Music/Sepultura Igor]]. In hopes of forming a supergroup with the aformentioned people.
