The Hunting Party is the sixth studio album by American rock band Linkin Park. The album, self-produced by band members Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson, was released by Warner Bros. Records on June 13, 2014. It is the first album since Meteora not to be produced with Rick Rubin, after producing the band's previous three studio albums. The title, The Hunting Party, is a contextual metaphor: Linkin Park is the party that is hunting to bring back the energy and soul of rock.

3. Guilty All The Same (feat. Rakim) - Heavy starting with Guitars then the drums hit for More than a minute the they continues with drums and guitars. Chester starts his Vocals smoothly followed by scream. Then hit the Hip Hop artist Rakim with his Raps. Finishes with Chester's screams. You Guilty! Awesome one!

4. The Summoning – Instrumental! Just to get the adrenaline pumping for the next song!

5. War – 1 2 .. Drums hit along with Guitars. Chester’s scream takes this one to a Death Metal Terrain Along with insane Guitar play. Chester finishes it with his screams! Pretty Heavy!

6. Wastelands – Drums first up followed by Guitars, Shinoda takes it to rap rock terrain then Chester with his vocals and Screams! This carries on for about a min! Then Chester’s vocals along with Screams. Wow! Awesome!

7. Until It’s Gone – Aha! Hann! Starts with Numbish tone, Guitars and Drums! Chester take over the Vocals and Screamo!!! Dude! I’ve no words for this one, Great song. 10 on 10!

11. Final Masquerade – Synths and guitars take it to the hard rock chorus. Chester does his works perfectly. Awesome one.

12. A line in the sand – Shinoda starts in a slow mode, Then the drums hit followed by guitars taking it to a hard rock terrain, Shinoda pulls his verses and bring it to nu-metal terrain followed by Chester’s screams. Shinoda takes this to a rap-rock terrain and Chester as usual with his Screams. Awesome song!

Cool Great Album! When they create Rock cannot suck but it energize us

Linkin Park actually replied to a post that was something "Rock Music Sucks Now and It's Depressing". When Mike Shinoda read this, he wrote a articulate answer for that and they released the album.

Is Linkin Park creating a sock puppet army to invade MB?
