Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton collaborated with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington for his upcoming album “Anesthetic”. They have recorded a song called “Cross Off”, which was released a month ago.
In a recent interview with Razor 94.7/104.7 Radio, Mark Morton has shared a new story about how they recorded Chester’s final song. He said:
“He was very collaborative. We had the music pretty well laid out and put down. We had the chorus outlined before it got to Chester, but when Chester came in, he really came very prepared. He had a lot of ideas for the lyrics and a different verse and a bridge, that kind of rappy section in the middle, he was really excited about it.
Chester came in with a whole lot of lyrics and a whole lot of ideas. The thing I remember the most about it, it was a little bit surreal because I was sitting across the table from Chester Bennington and we were basically passing a lyric sheet back and forth, talking about which part about each other’s idea we like and which parts we don’t.
It was a real honest collaboration and it was pretty special to have that sort of rhythm and that creative trust with someone that I had basically just met. But it seems to me that’s the kind of dude he was. He was really honest, super-creative and really excited about making music. I got that vibe from him right away.”
On reactions of the people, he said:
“I’m thrilled that people are digging it. It’s a pretty special song to me and I’m glad it’s reaching everyone and getting that kind of feedback.”
