Linkin Park reveal tracklist

2014-04-28 by H. Ethan | 72 Comments
Linkin Park have revealed the tracklist for their upcoming sixth studio album, The
Hunting Party
, which will be released on June 17th. The album features guest spots
from Helmet frontman Page Hamilton, System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian, Rakim and
Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave.

Mike Shinoda recently revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the album will be
the band's heaviest to date. "We need to weed out a lot of the soft, emo kind of approach to our music, and we need to
weed out anything that feels aggressive for aggressive's sake... What makes a 37-year-old angry is different than what made
us angry back in the day"
.

The tracklist for The Hunting Party can be seen below:

1. Keys To The Kingdom
2. All For Nothing (featuring Page Hamilton)
3. Guilty All The Same (featuring Rakim)
4. The Summoning
5. War
6. Wastelands
7. Until It's Gone
8. Rebellion (featuring Daron Malakian)
9. Mark The Graves
10. Drawbar (featuring Tom Morello)
11. Final Masquerade
12. A Line In The Sand

Even though I don't care for them much anymore, Linkin Park was the band that got me into heavier music and started the development of my musical tastes. For that reason, I'll always have a bit of a nostalgic soft spot for the band and will always give their new work a listen.

However, "Guilty All the Same" was better than anything they've written in quite awhile, so I'm actually looking forward to hearing the rest of this album.

In seriousness though, I give Linkin Park a ton of respect as a band. With the exception of guest appearances they've never resorted to being one of those bands that has the producer write all the songs for them/with them, and other than Hybrid Theory/Meteora, they haven't simply rested on their laurels (even if not every "experiment" worked perfectly). Not to mention they've penned some of the stronger rock radio singles over the last decade, and put on one hell of a live show

100% agree. Makes no sense, band has experimented a lot over the years and even though some may not like their music you gotta respect them for polarising their fan base and challenging them. Will check this for sure.

Still waiting for Reanimation 2.0 though...

I hope this album will be great. When I was younger Linkin Park was my favourite band, but they have lost that position as of now. I hope that this album will make them one of my favourite bands again.

I hope it's heavy but Living Things had heavy parts just thrown into songs it had no place for. Just want them to return to form.

And I totally agree with dawija1017. I give these guys a chance every album even though I know it won't be what I've been waiting for.....sadface.

I doubt that this will be much more than good mainstream rock with a possible punk-ish edge, but it will definitely be good and it's cool that all their albums are fairly different from each other (minus the cookie-cutter second album).
