19th March 2024 0 By John Deaux

As it celebrates its 20th anniversary, this vinyl release of Filter‘s third album, The Amalgamut, brings new life to the bands classic album and revitalizes the listening experience for new and old listeners

Originally released in 2002, “The Amalgamut” solidified Filter’s place in the alternative rock pantheon, showcasing their signature blend of industrial grit, melodic hooks, and raw emotion. Now this anniversary vinyl edition takes it to the next level.

There’s a warm, rich tone to the album and the pressing brings out nuances of the album’s sonic depth that were missing in the original digital release.

Tracks like “Where Do We Go from Here” to “American Cliché,” have a newfound vibrancy that will leave you breathless. Whether it’s exploring themes of alienation, societal decay, or personal struggle, Richard Patrick’s vocal over the band’s music strikes a chord.

For those already familiar with “The Amalgamut,” revisiting it on vinyl for the first time is a nostalgic journey back to the early 2000s alternative rock scene.

For those discovering it for the first time, this anniversary edition offers a fresh perspective on an album that remains as potent and relevant as ever. So, no matter, if you’re a die-hard Filter fan or simply appreciate great music, this anniversary edition is a must-have. Get ready to rock out to “The Amalgamut” like never before!
