Yo Zaraza, what in your opinion will be the most likely genres assoaicated with the upcoming 5th album? or in a thousand suns which was mostly alternative rock. After giving much thought to this and considering how they've done their recent work Im thinking its main genre will either be Alternative rock, electronic rock, progressive rock, hard rock, or possibly even alternative metal.
I judge Linkin park by their sound and by the way they deliver that sound just like you do and I also listen to nu-metal and rapcore bands like limp bizkit and hollywood undead. Though I must disagree with you about saying their doing it for fame because thats not the case. The guys in LP like to try new things,expand their tastes in music(like I do), make it their own and enjoy doing it. Now if the some of the newer fanbase says those things about HT and Meteora and likes JB(I dont) then thats just them and they have a right to feel that way. Finally I hope I havent started any bad terms with you cause I think its great to be able to have a conversation like this with another hardcore LP fan and being a huge fan since early 2003 Im always looking for other fans that can give a good talk about Linkin park as a whole and not just about the albums.
Dont get me wrong I like limp bizkit a lot and understand the difference in LP albums produced by don gilmore and rick rubin but I will agree with you that Linkin park have left some of their harder fans behind. Like you I am a hardcore fan of LP and a big supporter of LB as well but rick rubin did help bring out a more creative and unique style in MTM and ATS which brought an even larger and more open fanbase to them.
hey, i'm very sorry that i comment back so late but my wifi was or still is broken and now i have a slower connection -.-
i know all of the bands you presented to me and i have to say they sound really really good :D
