Linkin Park - Lies Greed Misery

Lies Greed Misery is another track off Linkin Park's forthcoming album Living Things. Although it wasn't officially released, the track has been semi-officially leaked.

Having listened to this song almost to death, I am now even more excited about the new album. As all the recent interviews have hinted, Linkin Park are going back to their "nu metal" sound, except now it is better than ever.

Hearing Shinoda spit his dirty rhymes against the electric wall of bass is poetic perfection. The lyrics blend so effortlessly with the music as well, rapping off the words "breaking point" just as the wave of noise crashes is just awesome.

Chester's vocals are incredible as ever, they are somehow raw and refined at the same time. His trademark screaming is still brimming with energy yet at the same time executed with the precision of a surgeon's scalpel. The playoff between the two front men is naturally reminiscent of Hybrid Theory... but evolved.

Anywho, highly recommend everyone give it a listen (below) or even download the song right here:
