This is certainly a gift from the afterlife for Chester Bennington‘s fans of young and old. The Linkin Park frontman who took his own life back in 2017 recorded a song for Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton‘s new collaborative album Anesthetic and that track, ‘Cross Off‘, has finally been released.
Featuring a heavy as fuck backing sound, screams and Chester’s now iconic vocals, it’ll certainly bring back a few memories of Linkin Park‘s early days and offer something for heavy music fans who didn’t take to the band’s more recent albums. There were plenty of chills throughout, especially towards the end of the song, so stop everything and check it out below.
I’m calling it now, this could potentially be one of the best albums of 2019 with the already released single ‘The Truth Is Dead‘ featuring Randy Blythe and Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy fame proving to be an absolute belter as well. The album will also feature Jacoby Shaddix, Myles Kennedy, Alissa White-Gluz, Mark Lanegan, Chuck Billy, Jake Oni, Josh Todd, Mark Morales and Naeemah Maddox who will all be on guest vocal duties while Mark plays guitars alongside the likes of Roy Mayorga, David Ellefson, Ray Luzier, Paulo Gregoletto and Alex Bent, Mike Inez, Jean-Paul Gaster, Steve Gorman and Marc Paul.
