UltimateGuitar.com: "If There Were More Kids With Guitars, Maybe You Wouldn't End Up With 28 Dead Children"
Many know Richard Patrick as the only static member of the band Filter. Prior to the formation of Filter, Richard cut his teeth in a band called Nine Inch Nails. He also formed a band called Army of Anyone with Robert and Dean DeLeo [Stone Temple Pilots], and Ray Luzier [Korn, David Lee Roth]. Filter recently released their seventh record. Richard remains one of rock and roll's most outspoken frontmen and proves it in the following exclusive unfiltered interview.
Filter: Crazy Eyes - Review
There's a moment in Filter's Crazy Eyes where things get uncomfortable. Unfortunately, that moment occurs within the first seconds on the very first track, "Mother E." If you're going to isolate the vocals you'd better have some pretty compelling lyrics, and here the album opens on Richard Patrick's repetitive and inexplicably aggressive whispering of the line "I've got my reasons/ And my reasons are sound." If you're whispering at all, wouldn't you be doing it gently? If not, you might as well be yelling-which is what Patrick does for the remainder of the track. It seems therefore that the aggressive whispers are meant to serve to add weight to the contrasting screams. But then, why so forced? He sounds like someone who's trying to sound crazy. It's the dramatic equivalent to the villain who explains the plot to his victims. Welcome to Crazy Eyes. It's a bad start to an otherwise good record-so we'll get over it.
Filter: Crazy Eyes - MIRP Album Review
Multi-platinum rockers Filter drop their latest, Crazy Eyes in April on Wind-up Records. Buzz has been circulating recently not just for the album, which is their 7th studio full-length release, but also for the video "Take Me To Heaven." With sold out shows on their headlining Make America Hate Again Tour with Orgy, the band has certainly been rocking the boat. The Single, "Take Me To Heaven" debuted at #2 on New and Active radio charts and has been being added by many stations since. The band takes a more industrial, less guitar focused turn on this record without losing their edge or authenticity.
