Linkin Park spoke with Artisan News at the Golden Gods and gave them the skinny on their new album ‘The Hunting Party’, how it is described as a Hybrid Theory prequel, and recruitment of System Of A Down guitarist Daron Malakian for the album. Watch it below:
System of a Down’s axeman Daron Malakian will be the featured as the guest in the upcoming Linkin Park album, x95.9FM reports (via ABC News Radio).
There will be at least one more guest on the album – Paige Hamilton, the Helmet frontman, also participated. However, it’s still unrevealed how did they participate – as the guitar players or as the singers. The presence of Malakian and Hamilton was revealed during the album’s closed pre-release listening session, which took place on April 4.
Linkin Park mastermind Mike Shinoda said during the session that he and his band mates share a growing discomfort with the poppier leanings of alternative music these days. With the new album, he says, they felt the need to return to a harder edge.
“This is reflected in the first single, ‘Guilty All the Same,'” says Shinoda. “It just felt like the right introduction to the record, which is kind of a shocking one.”
As a matter of fact, Shinoda says the song “sits in the middle [of the songs on the album]” in terms of tone.
However, Shinoda said that the songs were still rough mixes and that the band is busy tweaking them; he says fans can expect the new Linkin Park album “sometime in the middle of the summer.”
Paige Hamilton and Daron Malakian joined Rakim in the list of guest appearances on the newest Linkin Park album – the iconic rapper participated to the first single off the record, “Guilty All the Same,” revealed a month ago.
