  1. They're not. My working theory is that because the songs Martinez cited are exactly the ones we didn't already have from one source or another, the other songs were taken from the sources we already had.
  2. In Pieces instrumental is out there.
  3. I see. I appreciate the clarification, I was genuinely curious about that. I spend quite a while going through the site. It’s awesome.
  4. So when an album is added to LPCatalog, that's their team basically just saying "This exists, and we have it"?
  5. I wonder if this song was maybe planned to be properly finished and included on either an LPU or maybe a special edition of OML, and then plans for the song (and any releases) were shelved after 7/20. That might explain why the song was in a position to be leaked like this in the first place. I could be completely wrong, but I would imagine that most unreleased music like this doesn't leak because it's typically available to so few people that the source of the leak could be easily identified.
  6. Definitely sounds like an LPU demo, which I guess essentially it could have been. It's pretty cool.
  7. Sounds like it could be a sound similar to the ones Joe uses on the intro of Somewhere I Belong, or maybe the bridge of With You.
  8. It depends though, I think. I'm pretty sure the raw unmastered/unmixed tracks, like the actual pro-tools sessions, have WAY more tracks than what we got in the recent leaks.
  9. Pretty sure most of us have seen/heard him. He is indeed a great singer. I don't think he should join LP though. "We lost Chester, so we got someone who looks and sounds just like him!" I know some people would find that cool probably. I think it wouldn't be. No disrespect to him or his talent though.
  10. Linkin Park have always held the viewpoint that they don't need to be what anyone expects. Finding a new vocalist so that they can sing Chester's parts live would run directly counter to that philosophy. Chester is gone. If LP goes on with just Mike and drops some of their heavier songs, I don't see the problem there. I know the argument is that casual fans want to hear songs that Mike can't handle, and therefore LP might not be able to fill arenas like they were before if those songs are gone. To that, I say again that Chester is gone. It already will never be the same as it was before. That is just the reality of the situation. I would rather them drop some songs and reinvent themselves (again) if the alternative is having a new vocalist sing Chester's parts so that the typical LP set doesn't have to change too much. EDIT: Guys, go watch the ending of Meeting of A Thousand Suns. Listen to Mike asking the band "What's the smartest way to go about the next step?", listen to Chester's answer, and then apply that answer to this entire thread. The end. He was talking about ATS obviously, but it can apply to this dilemma as well.
  11. I agree that with the PT tour over, the question of the future of LP will eventually become something that the band will need to discuss. The entire PT album cycle took place during a period where the band (including Mike) were all mourning in their own ways and dealing with their grief in the best ways they knew how. With the tour now over, and almost two years since 7/20, I do think that the situation may be less painful for them to broach among themselves and, whatever they ultimately decide, I fully support them. With all that being said, I personally would love for the band to continue as a 5-piece with Mike singing all of the songs that he can and letting the crowd take certain parts that he maybe can't. I mean we know that he can handle Papercut because he did at the Hollywood Bowl. Certain songs like Faint or OSC could be done partly by Mike and partly by the crowd. Certain songs may need to be retired but that's okay.
  12. I haven't heard the tracks yet to know exactly where you mean, but I assume you mean just before the second verse. The answer is because it adds a layer, serving as another step in the slow/steady build of the song.
  13. Before 7/20. It is even more odd considering that he hasn't even so much as logged in to LPL since that date.
  14. He performed it more than once. He performed it a few times actually, it just wasn't all the time.
  15. A lot of things, in hindsight, seem like they were red flags for what would happen on 7/20. Also to be honest I'm sure the backlash against OML was even stronger considering that Mike, in 2014 said: “There’s so much stuff that sounds like HAIM or CHVRCHES or Vampire Weekend that I’m full. The thing I’m hungry for is not that. I turn on the rock station in L.A. and it sounds like Disney commercial music.” And then, 3 years later, Heavy was released. He probably shouldn't have said that, but again hindsight is 20/20 and I get that, at the time, he was trying to promote THP.
