Fantomas is the brainchild of Mike Patton (Faith No More,
Fantomas started as a blitzkrieg of music in Mike's head.
He had to find the musicians to realise this imaginary
noise and he came up with quite a line up. Trevor Dunn
(bass) grew up with Mike and has been a member of Mr Bungle
with him for the last fifteen years. Buzz Osborne (guitar)
is the driving force behind the legendary heavy-noise-rock
band that is the Melvins (who have also had not just one
but five records out on Ipecac in the last five months!).

Review about Fantomas songs
Gos and Satan cant live without one another! | Reviewer: MeltingMind------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
I wouldn't focus on the meaning to much. People invest entirely to much time deciding what is moral and what is distasteful. Especial with music. For me its like another form watching a horror flick. Where all horror film makers Satanist?...... most likely no. Does watching a horror film make you evil, and or satanic. No!
therefore, does listening to this song mean anything about your being. Again, no! Its just as good a song as the actual movie, satanic or not. Great delivery by Patton as always.
omen fan | Reviewer: joann Thorpe------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
whoever you are and whatever you believe it is a fantastic song and a brilliant film. nothing rivals it in my opinion and the creepy music could not have been written any better for the film.
aargh | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
I just wish the Latin was conjugated correctly.
Versus Christus --> Verse Christi (the evocative) ((why not antichristos? literally antichrist, which is what Damien was))
Sanguis --> Sanguinem
It's not like making these changes would drastically alter the rhyme scheme or rhythm. The choirmaster was clearly not an expert.
sweet music to my soul | Reviewer: Leonard Thomas------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
I'm glad to finally read what they are singing as well as the translation. I'm not a satanist anymore than the average person, but i am strangely comforted by this song. I suppose it's because i've always been an outcast, ostracized, isolated and ave satani is different from the "norm", like myself. aaahhhhh....
brilliant! | Reviewer: xanderthevampire------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
This is excellent in several ways 1st, I love pissing off the deluded, hypocritical christians of the world and now i have the perfect song to sing. (I'd love to walk around the vatican singing this) I already had it as my ringtone but i didnt know the meaning now i do, it's sooo much better. also, It's brilliant how the lyrics actually pertain to the film. Too often are we served up random tunes on horror movies which, if it werent for their use on the movies, wouldn't even be considered unhappy, in fact most seem like normal, upbeat tunes. this one actually makes sense with the movie it was used on.
The truth ab the genius | Reviewer: luuloo------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
Jerry Goldsmith's inspiration for this was a Christian Gregorian chant used in churches before communion was taken. If you watch documentaries on the movie, he tells you that with the help of (I believe is was) a priest that was fluent in Latin, he turned it into an "Ode to Satan and his son". Brilliant for the movie, and an award well deserved for the entire score!
Satanic music is better than Christian music anyway | Reviewer: Jesus was a hippy------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
I love this song and it has made my relationship with Satan a lot more meaningful. I especially like to sing it when I see hypocritical Christian douchebags talk about their god while completely going against the teachings of their stupid faith in the first place. If Jesus Christ came back, these dipshits would be the first to crucify him again. And that pisses me off because I think we devil-worshippers should get first crack at him.
Work of genius | Reviewer: Sly Stu------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
Personally I think the song - regardless of it's translation - is a soundtrack masterpiece. The film is an all-time classic horror, and Jerry Goldsmith is the top dog in his field, with only the songwriting director John Carpenter in my opinion matching quality on some tracks. I don't worship Satan, but like someone else has said, it is just lyrics. :) It really set the tone of the film like few others could.
Just a great scary song | Reviewer: LieveDani------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
well, I like the song, if you look at the meaning it isn't that well perhaps, but it won't disturb my fun singin' along with the song, it's a movie theme tho. Thanks a lot for the lyrics and translation! I already knew it a bit, but now I do fully understand and speak ^^
oh no!!! | Reviewer: kosstheory------ About the song Omen (Ave Satani) performed by Fantomas
I suppose you think that "God" and the Angels are real too, huh?
Wake up people...They are words, and that's all they are, they are meaningless, unless you really mean to worship evil in general.
It's just funny to associate those lyrics with the mundane...Like humming the tune when Bush gives a speach, or manages to dodge a shoe at point blank range...
