Consequence of Sound

Recorded pre-pandemic, the joy and enthusiasm of the reunion tour is captured here and the results are immensely entertaining. If you like thrash, then the Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo is mandatory listening.

Metal Injection
The album’s over-the-top nature isn’t about to usurp the iconic classics of the Big Four, but it’s certainly worthy of personal from that legendary circle.

Opting to re-record a largely unknown demo is a fitting way to bring closure to Mr. Bungle's catalogue. Further, the inclusion of previously unheard songs makes this feel like a proper new release, as opposed to an excuse to shove a nostalgic name back into the world.

Metal Hammer
As brilliantly off-beam as ever but crushing like never before, Mr. Bungle have turned a noble but nostalgic exercise into one of 2020’s most exhilarating metal records. Heroes.

Grown men revisiting their youthful hijinks should be a terrible idea or, to borrow an FNM title, a midlife crisis. Instead, this record is an absolute rager, testament to both the original material and the present-day dedication of its lunatic creators.


There's so much mad joy at the helm ... that the material feels bracing, vital, and rooted in the present.

For believers, it’s great to have them back. Newcomers can use it as an introduction to one of music’s weirder adventurers before deciding whether to shit or get off the pot.
Spectrum Culture

Twenty-odd years later, Mr. Bungle hits rewind back to its thrash days, to somewhat sad effect.

Mike Patton Project: #8

Wow I suck, I was so strict with myself last week with planning out my listening and reviewing of Disco Volante and California so I could get to the new album when it was released. Then when it does release, it takes me a week to actually review it. Well I finally got here, and here would be the newest/oldest release in this series so far; The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, the fourth Mr. Bungle album which is a remake of their first demos back in 1986.

why do i like this
For a group touted as weird and off the wall this album is surprisingly bland. Other than highlights like Hypocrites / Habla Espanol O Muere, this album isn't any better than your average metal release, the riffs are bland alot of the time and the vocals go from impressive to annoying quite often. I can acknowledge and admire its weirdness when it shows up but otherwise its just an ok album at best.
Ooooooh Mike Patton U so crazy. This ain't bungle baby! In the words of Faith No More, which is what this is, "Mother....Mother FUCKER!"
My entire life has lead up to this moment and i am not disappointed
