“Hybrid Theory” isn’t just the title of Linkin Park’s first chart-topping debut album, but a career mission statement.
From day one, the same six players, co-lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, drummer/percussionist, Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave ‘Phoenix’ Farrell, DJ/Programmer Joe Hahn and Mike Shinoda - co-lead vocals, keyboard, guitar, built the band by fusing all their favorite styles of music into one unmistakable signature sound. With each album, LP defiantly challenges themselves and their fans by blazing into new musical territory. After setting the template for rock that incorporated hip-hop influences with Hybrid Theory and Meteora, they shifted gears completely and defied expectations with the polychromatic Minutes to Midnight, and again with the esoteric A Thousand Suns, before melding a piece of them all into 2012’s LIVING THINGS. With their latest release and heaviest offering in years, The Hunting Party, Linkin Park manage to capture their ever-innovative spirit with a hunger seldom seen in bands on their sixth album.
Back to work.
