Mike Patton’s sporadic avante-garde metal supergroup Fantômas, following the rule that if you talk about someone enough there will probably be some news about them, are set to release a live DVD of their seminal 2001 album The Director’s Cut, just over a decade after its release.

I waxed lyrical about the record recently when Dan took a week’s sabbatical from From The Archive, so I won’t bore you to death again, but trust me when I say it’s fantastic – not to mention the numerous glowing live reports I’ve heard. This promises to be a must-have release – and that’s coming from me; someone who owns only one live DVD (Botch‘s 061522, if you’re interested).

It’s due to be released September 6th on Ipecac Recordings.
