The First Taste Of Linkin Park's New Album!

  • The First Taste Of Linkin Park's New Album!
    POSTED 11 Apr 2014


    Mike Shinoda recently mentioned (in an interview that we posted yesterday) that there are 5 tracks from the new Linkin Park album ‘The Hunting Party’ circling around specific media in the US. While we haven’t been lucky enough to recieve a copy ourselves, we thought we’d share what the guys atLoudwire thought when they got to have a listen!

    Linkin Park, The Hunting Party Early Rundown of Five Tracks:

    Keys to the Kingdom:Right off the bat this track has an old-school punk vibe with a new twist. The hasty drums and explosive riffs a hardcore element to it. Vocalist Chester Bennington unleashes melodies and the balance of Shinodas rap verses makes for a powerful combination. Although the band will be playing arenas on their forthcoming Carnivores tour, this song has an underground feel that would welcome them to a small, beat up venue in Brooklyn, N.Y.

    Wastelands of Today:This tune starts with a hip-hop verse and the song has a lot of groove with heavy drum and bass. The chorus is catchy yet sludgy and has some grit to it. Watch out for the heavy breakdown in the middle of the song. Linkin Park take you on a sonic roller-coaster ride as they play around with the tempo and ambiance of the song.

    Until Its Gone:Its a more mid-tempo track with softer lyrics provided by Chester Bennington, who really shows his vocal versatility. The dreamy and atmospheric sounds are enough to whisk you away but Bennington brings you back down to earth as he belts out their take on a familiar chorus: Cause you dont know what youve got / No you dont know what youve got / You dont know what youve got / Until its gone. This catchy song is one thats bound to get stuck in your head for a long time.

    All for Nothing:This one, when performed live, will get the crowd moving for sure. With a hip-hop flow in the first verse this quickly turns into almost a punk anthem. The song is relentless and unapologetic, with a stellar guitar solo by Brad Delson. Its no surprise that this heavy tune is hardcore especially since it features a guest spotHelmetvocalist and guitarist Paige Hamilton.

    Rebellion:With a name like Rebellion, as a listener you would expect pure chaos and mayhem and thats exactly what Linkin Park give you. The vibe is almost thrashy with its speedy riffs and galloping drums. While listening to it one might think that it could even fit onSystem of a Downs first album thats probably because none other than Daron Malakian of System of a Down is featured on this song.
