Angel Dust, released in 1992 (see 1992 in music), was the fourth studio album by U.S. rock band Faith No More, and the second to feature vocalist Mike Patton, as well as the final with guitarist "Big" Jim Martin.
Angel Dust is a power metal band originating from Dortmund, Germany that started off as a typical garage band. Taking their name from a song title off the black metal band Venom's debut album Welcome To Hell, Angel Dust was founded in 1984. Their style was initially heavily influenced by the NWOBHM metal scene and the Bay Area thrash metal scene.
