5.0 out of 5 stars raw power, 18 Jun 2014
Greetings to the home of raw rock n roll where the only relief you will get is accidentally banging your head into a wall. The music here is generally very heavy, needle in the red, juddering dirges, with constantly slithering, haunting bass and melody lines giving an added uneasy layer of sinister atmosphere that threatens to choke you with every suffocating breath that you will labour to take. The vocals are suitably abrasive or crazy as required and cement the songs well with often brilliant counterpoint.

Linkin Park’s debut ‘Hybrid Theory’ was released all the way back in 2000, it was a magical time where metal heads and Goths ruled the world and every young teen sported a black hoodie with their favourite band on them. The mixing of hip hop and metal was at its commercial peak thanks to Slipknot, Papa Roach and of course Linkin Park. Oh and Snake was the height of mobile phone gaming technology! 14 years later and a lot has changed and despite the talk ‘The Hunting Party’ is nothing like their debut album, which is a good thing because if that’s what I wanted I could have just listened to that and anyway the band are not the same as they were back then, for starters they are rolling in… Read more
