Tomahawk is not as extreme or experimental as the other bands on Ipecac Records and this album is not as difficult and jarring as other projects involving the ever brilliant and relentless Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, etc). Not to say this is MTV material or marketable to unrefined tastes, but this is simply the best album on Patton's Ipecac roster, and one of the best hard rock albums released so far in 2003.
A more accessible vehicle for Mike Patton's unique and bizarre vision, Tomahawk's "Mit Gas" is a great improvement from their 2001's self-titled debut. If "Tomahawk" was right up there with Faith No More's great but flawed "King for a Day..", "Mit Gas" comes closer to Patton's creative peaks, FNM's "Angel Dust" and Mr. Bungle's "California".
A perfect blend of weirdness, musicianship, melody and noise, "Mit Gas" is the sound of our post-modern, media-addicted times. There is no purity here, only inexhaustible creative impulses. One of the highlights is "You can't win", which sounds like rock-steady reggae made in hell, commanded by a possesed Patton in top form. On the other hand, "Desastre Natural" resembles Faith No More's quieter moments ("Take this Bottle", "Easy")entirely sung in Spanish; I don't know what Mike is on about here (and Spanish happens to be my first language) but it's brilliant and hilarious nonetheless.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Tomahawk's music is that it never sounds contrived, their weirdness is not carefully and strategically planned like their wealthier Nu-Metal descendants (Linkin Park. etc.) This is the sound of curious, adventurous minds; pros at the top of their game, doing what they do best.

If you like Patton you may as well just order it. Get it over with already. If your new to Patton, or on the fence about his musical ventures, this album kind of ties all of Pattons styles in to an almost mainstream, I said almost mainstream package. Yea I know that probably helps about as much as hearing "it's good", but he includes just about all of his vocal stylings. The bit where he makes sounds is there, in exceptable doses! But it's more like a back ground harmony that really does just fill in some blanks. Kinda cool and not forced. Musically this album is just awesome. The guitar and drums and are definately more pronounced compared to the last album. The first song sounds like a Tool song. He has lyrics in every song and he is singing in a more accessible Patton style! FYI I favor the Faith no more ablums 2,3,4, Tomahawk, Bungle albums 1 and 3 over the other styles he's done with Fantomas and Bungle #2. Anyways I like it and highly recommend it.

Tomahawk released its first album in 2001. If you ask me, it was the "Album Of The Year". The album's third song "Point and Click" happened to be the best song of the year. Well, they've ovbiously done it again, since this clearly includes the best stuff I've heard so far this year and "Captain Midnight" is by far the most amazing song in a while. It is hard to judge wether Mit Gas is really better than the debut album. It is quite not as rock-orientated as the first one. The Guy who sold me the album said it is better than the first one since it sounds less like Faith No More, but you can hear FNM especially on "Rape This Day". Not just for Faith No More fans, but for anyone willing to experience great music with open minds.

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! "You Can't Win" 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.
