Best Filter Album to Date

on 7/31/2002

The Amalgamut starts where Title of Record left off... It's amazing! That's the best way to describe it. The most impressive song, The Only Way (Is The Wrong Way), is this albums Take a Picture, and almost has a U2 mixed with hard rock sound to it. If you liked Title of Record, you're going to love this one! Read More

THIS ALBUM IS FANTASTIC!!!!

on 8/2/2002

"The Amalgamut", the third release from Filter, finds singer Richard Patrick, and Co. at their best. Patrick, sounds completely comfortable with his voice, and it shows through all of the twelve songs. It, is their strong musicianship, and knack for writing great music that connects with their fans,that makes Filter a band that stands out from the rest. Read More

Recorded at Abyssinian Sons Studio, Chicago, Illinois and The Mix Room, Burbank, California.
What began initially as a project by NIN alumnus Richard Patrick has developed into a real band. Formerly the sole composer, Patrick opened himself to collaborating with his bandmates on 1999's breakthrough, TITLE OF RECORD and the overwhelming response paved the way for a true band effort here. Guitarist Geno Lenardo adds dimensions and texture to Patrick's solid foundation, and the result is Filter hitting its creative stride with THE AMALGAMUT.
As the title suggests, this musical mixture boasts impeccable production values (the walls of staggering, layered guitars and pristine drum sounds are to die for). "My Long Walk To Jail" boasts grisly chromatic riffing while "So I Quit" burns with punky verses. Built within Filter's industrial flavored aggro-metal are enough sucker-punch hooks ("Where Do We Go From Here" and "Columind") and power ballad pomp ("The Missing" and "God Damn Me ") to make their contemporaries take notice. A special treat for hardcore Filter fans, enhanced features of THE AMALGAMUT include a companion film, "Plague Of A Thousand Deceptions" (which ties in with the album concept), as well as internet links to exclusive live downloads and behind-the-scenes footage of the band's creative process.
