Song #4: Spider Baby


Fantomas features members of Mr. Bungle, (Vocals, Bass) The Melvins (Guitar), and Slayer (Drums). The voice of Mike Patton is very distinct, as always. They are a very experimental band, ranging from very tight compositions to loose noise. Though I have never had the pleasure of seeing Fantomas, I have seen Mr. Bungle, and saw The Melvins with my Mom.


Fantomas is covering “Spider Baby”, a famous opening to a horror movie of the same name from 1968, originally narrated by Lon Cheney Jr. Spider Baby, the film, is about a family of children who suffer from a disorder that make them get progressively more savage as they get older.

Here is the original version of the song:
