Linkin Park Membicarakan The Hunting Party di Revolver Magazine
Linkin Park akan berada dalam edisi mendatang dari Revolver Magazine pada Agustus/September 2014. Chester Benning dan Mike Shinoda dalam interview membicarakan tentang "The Hunting Party". Berikut adalah kutipan interview daro website Revolver Magazine.
“This isn’t the heaviest record in the world,” Bennington says, “but this is the heaviest Linkin Park record. You have to put it in the context of Linkin Park, not in the context of heavy music, because then it makes sense.”
“We know that Slayer exists,” seconds Shinoda. “We know that Exodus exists, right? So we’re not going to say we wrote a ‘heavy’ record, in comparison.”
“It all finally clicked one day,” he says. “I was listening to the stuff I was writing, and I realized it was so derivative. It wasn’t cutting edge, it wasn’t ahead of the curve, and it wasn’t doing the things that I wanted to listen to. I’d already played the stuff to the guys, and they were like, ‘Yeah, we like that, let’s do that!’ And then, the next time I saw them, I was like, “You know those songs I already played you, that you liked? I want to throw them in the trash…and I want to do this.”
Bennington was immediately on board with Shinoda’s new direction. “Chester, to his credit, he got where I was coming from right away,” says Shinoda, “but that’s not surprising, because that’s totally in his wheelhouse. He was like, ‘I want to do that all day!’”
The other members of the band—Delson, bassist Dave Farrell, drummer Rob Bourdon, and DJ/keyboardist Joe Hahn—took a little longer to come around, however. Though Shinoda has emerged over the years as Linkin Park’s main songwriter (“Everyone in the band writes songs, but mine mostly seem to be the ones that everyone votes for,” he shrugs), Delson has been his main musical foil throughout. “In the studio, Brad and I are the ones really pushing stuff forward,” he says. “We could only do what Chester and I wanted to do if Brad got on board. But in the beginning, he was humoring me. He was just doing it because I wanted him to do it.”
