"Burn It Down" sounds rebellious. Rebellious= Heavy. hmm... Maybe I'm speculating too much.


Thought the same thing. Maybe we can expect us some angry rap verses by Mike or something in it. Like in "Wretches & Kings".

Sounds like a cheapo rock song to me haha. ' Burn it down yeah yeah yeah yea ' or something crap like that.

I'm sure I'll be completely wrong though, not trying to be negative. But ya cant beat The Catalyst s a single name, sounded so mysterious.




Ditto. I think this whole record is going to be like that to be honest. The creative side is going to come from elements they throw into each song, but mike calling it a "firecracker" record and Chester saying that playing these songs live are a big influence to create uptempo songs, just sounds like at the end of the day they want to add more energy to their live shows. more what i've done's, new divides, etc and less burning in the skies, iridescents, etc.


I think this album is going to be a lot like Hybrid Theory/Meteora in the sense that the energy never dies in the album. You can jam to those albums beginning to end. It's not going to be as heavy, use as much distorted guitars, screaming, etc but the energy is going to be up and they album won't feel as random as a Minutes to Midnight ( i.e. Leave out all the rest after Given Up)

Personally, I think the title sounds a bit generic and cliche but as long as the song itself is good then I can't complain. Some great songs have horrible titles. Hopefully this album is a good evolution of the progressive elements ATS brought forth.

I think that'd be a good thing. MTM's transitions were sort of shitty, whereas ATS used the multiple interludes to make the transitions not so jarring. But if every song is nice and fast (with some variation of course), then there's no need for transitional interludes and the transitions themselves won't be as bad.

Also, I don't see why people are passing judgement on the title of the song, calling it "cliche" and shit. It's a song title. We haven't heard so much as one line yet, if it's even the title. Chill out.

I have to disagree here. the interludes made ATS worse

If the interludes were not their own tracks, but tacked on to the other songs (like Empty Spaces was part of WTCFM/BITS, Fallout was part of The Catalyst, etc.), would you still feel the same way?

If Chester was screaming over them and Mike was rapping over them, would you like them more?

BURN IT DOWN SOUNDS SO FUCKING HEAVY. OMG. I CAN JUDGE A SONG BY THE NAME OF THE TITLE, AND SINCE BURN IT DOWN HAS THE WORD DOWN IN IT, AND SINCE HEAVY THINGS BRING LIGHT THINGS "LOWER" AKA DOWN, THEN THIS SONG MUST BE HEAVY AS FUCK! I LOVE YOU LINKIN PARK. YOU ARE MY LOVER. KEEP MAKING HEAVY MUSIC BECAUSE IT MAKES MY BONER GO WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

:lol: Good one.

Well, "Burn it Down" doesn't sound like a typical Linkin Park song title but the release date sounds legit. I'm so looking forward to hearing their new stuff. The recent interviews got me very excited.

AllAccess and FMQB are pretty reliable. They're sites for the radio branche, DJ's etc..

awaits radio promo disc prices on ebay to go astronomical on this :lol:

That news is sick. Adds up hope for new album's release early summer.

Anyway, I don't like the title that much. It sounds energetic and kinda non-generic for Linkin Park, but I fear new record will get too distant from melodic-style tracks like Burning In The Skies, Iridescent, Little Things Give You Away or Robot Boy.
But if it's close to Wretches And Kings I won't protest though. Just, please, let it not be another Hybrid Theory. X_X

EDIT: Triple A's release date note for Regina Spektor's (a russian-born american singer) new single got recently pushed from March 26th to April 23. That may mean that "Burn It Down" release date may also be not that final. :unsure:

I would feel the same way, because it would be like an annpoying little part to the end (or beginning) of a song. I dislike them completely and wish they weren't there.

:lol: Good one.

It sounds generic to LP because it's another three word single title lol. but i love the title name
