Filtered
Shaping the Truth EP

Article written by Kev O - Apr 11, 2006

London-playing three piece Filtered cite influences as diverse as Sugar, The Police, Rush and Nirvana. Based on a listening of their Shaping the Truth EP, I reckon there’s little fear of them being prosecuted under the Trades Description Act. Ok, they do not sound like, or as mighty, as any of the aforementioned but Filtered create a heavy rock wallop, a good sense of melody, and one helluva lead vocal: and all done without any undue fuss or malarkey. Of the songs Broken is a speeding heavy rock number with a wig-out guitar solo; Selling You Out eschews axe-mania for clean/uncluttered rhythm guitar and the kind of strong, downcast melody that Sugar used to make; and Trial By Fire flips back and forth between a half-reggae/half-'My Sharona’ beat and a Metallica rock beast. No messin'.
