Filter - Anthems For The Damned
Filter, the band led by former NIN drummer Richard Patrick, is back with a new album. This band was at its height during the late 90's and early part of this decade. Now, after a short break, Filter releases the new album Anthems For The Damned. The outcome is a politically charged album that still has that trademark Filter sound to it. It's nice that the band hasn't sold out their style. Highlights of the album are the title track "Soldiers of Misfortune" and the heavier sounding "What's Next?" I saw them at a show this summer here in NJ and they sounded awesome. It's good to know Richard Patrick and company are back in business.
