LINKIN PARK's hugely successful sixth studio album 'The Hunting Party' was released on June 16th, the same weekend that the band headlined the UK's Download Festival. It went on to take the No 1 spot on the iTunes chart in 67 countries. The album was produced by band members Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson and included guest slots from Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, System of a Down's Daron Malakian and Helmet's Paige Hamilton.
The album received a glowing 4K review from Kerrang magazine who said it was "..the heaviest thing they've ever done". Q rating it 4/5 thought it was the "..the sound of Linkin Park coming in from the cold" whilst the Daily Telegraph called it ".sleek, exciting and committed" and the Guardian noted it was a "..loud return to rocking hard"
