The Hunting Party sees the band returning to heavier, more guitar-oriented music after the heavily electronic outings of A Thousand Suns and Living Things. They were inspired by bands from the s rock and punk scene and wanted to bring that kind of music back to radio, as revealed by Mike Shinoda.
Working with someone like Morello was a drastic departure from Linkin Park's typical method of writing songs. Morello introduced a more jam-oriented style of writing that was relatively foreign to the group. Guitarist Brad Delson, too, stepped out of his comfort zone a bit on The Hunting Party , recording more guitar solos than ever before for the album.
Despite his prior aversion to recording more flashy guitar playing, Delson ultimately decided the songs for The Hunting Party needed guitar solos in them, whereas the band's older material did not quite warrant more advanced guitar playing.
On February 3, , Mike Shinoda posted an update on his blog, revealing the band was deep in the process of writing and recording the album that would become The Hunting Party , mentioning the band's experimentation and openness to free form jamming.
The lyric video for the track was uploaded to Linkin Park's YouTube channel a few days later, on March 7. The official music video for "Guilty All The Same", a collaboration with Microsoft and their game, Project Spark, was released at the end of the month, on March Chester Bennington said that "GATS was too ROCK for radio"  and the band knew from the beginning the album wouldn't sell well worldwide but did it anyway because they "wanted our fans who love heavy music to be happy.
The song's lyric video was released at the same time. An additional DVD performance of the band's live show in Monterrey, Mexico was offered for international orders.
Its lyric video was released the same day as the intended release date. Only two days later, "Rebellion" was released and a lyric video was uploaded to Linkin Park's YouTube channel. The song's lyric video was released a day later. That same day, fans could stream The Hunting Party in full through iTunes.
Linkin Park have managed to buck both the trends and the clocks in staying relevant, their latest arena tour happening as we speak. Album Reviews.

Not the best package by any means. Decent vinyl though! Bellington June 23, Report. Breaking away from Rick Rubin , with whom they had a three-album association, Brad Delson and Mike Shinoda co-produce this time around and retreat from the moody electronica that characterized many of those records. Instead, The Hunting Party is designed as a return to rock, evoking the group's earliest records. Reconnecting with the past is a standard move for a heavy band 15 years into its career, but The Hunting Party is effectively aggressive, partially due to how far into the ether Linkin Park strayed on Living Things and, especially, A Thousand Suns.
Written and recorded over the course of a year, The Hunting Party nevertheless packs a visceral punch. Hints of the murky, meditative darkness linger -- especially on "Until It's Gone," which builds upon its atmosphere to reach melodramatic heights; "Final Masquerade" is subtler in its approach -— but there's good reason why Page Hamilton and Tom Morello both guest on the record: this is a grinding, metallic workout.
