Album Info

  • Release Date: June 16, 2014
  • Label: Machine Shop/Warner Bros
6 / 10 Linkin Park have talked a good game in the run up to the release of their sixth album, saying that they're sick of bands copying Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire and promising to hit back with some of their heaviest material to date. Members of System Of A Down and Rage Against The Machine have joined the fight here. But while Daron Malakian's appearance on 'Rebellion' packs a hefty punch, Tom Morello's spot is disappointing – 'Drawbar' sidesteps the riffs altogether for a plaintive piano wheeze. However, Linkin Park's other material is reliably heavy; 'War' and 'Wastelands' find Chester Bennington's vocals soaring over a tumult of expensive-sounding noise. It might not kill the Mumford and Butler clones, but 'The Hunting Party' is an energetic effort at least.
