Fantômas is the self-titled debut studio album by American experimental metal supergroup Fantômas. It was released on April 26, 1999, and was the first album released on Ipecac Recordings. The cover depicts the Spanish poster for the 1965 French movie Fantômas se déchaîne, translated in Spanish as "Fantômas amenaza al mundo" ("Fantômas threatens the world"). Because of this, some people refer to this album as Amenaza al Mundo; however, it is officially self-titled.[citation needed] The album is designed to serve as a soundtrack to a comic book.[citation needed]

Track 13[edit]

Track 13 is not listed, as thirteen is considered an unlucky number. There is no song on this track, simply the fading out of a cymbal from "Book 1: Page 12", the previous track. The next Fantômas album, The Director's Cut, also has silence in place of track 13.
