Quickies: News from Faith No More, Art of Anarchy, and a new video from Armageddon

It’s my Friday so I’m gonna get these Quickies out to you guys and then get super weird.

Kinda cool. It might end up being a grower. For those that need a refresher, Armageddon features Chris Amott (ex-Arch Enemy), and you definitely get his influence. Captivity and Devourment comes out January 27th.
