Linkin Park Sheet Music - Final Masquerade on Chromatik

After a whole decade of chart-topping hits, Linkin Park's experimentation with clean-cut anthems shouldn't come as a shock. The guys in Linkin Park are getting old, and screaming "Shut up when I'm talking to you" doesn't quite have the same gritty angst it had when they released their first album. As frontman Mike Shinoda mentioned to Rolling Stone when discussing the details of their latest album, "We're not 18 year-old-kids making a loud record, we're 37-year-old adults making a loud record. And what makes a 37-year-old angry is different than what made us angry back in the day." In place of all that youthful anger, the band has found ways to mature the way they lament their dark personalities. Chester Bennington's theatrics tone down the abrasive screaming and replace it with some operatic gloom. With their refined new sound, Linkin Park use "Final Masquerade" as a blueprint for any aging musician to show they've grown up without losing their surly edge. So if you're looking to expel some of that repressed teenage angst, take a cue from Linkin Park and learn this dramatic cut off their latest album, The Hunting Party, on Chromatik.
