Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton will be released his first solo album “Anesthetic” on March 1, 2019. The album featuring a Chester Bennigton collabration song.
In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Mark Morton has shared the story of how he connected with late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. He said:
“I had my people call his people. It was one of those things where we were listening to the song, like, who in our world would we have singing this? And Chester was the name that came out. So we almost didn’t try, because it’s Chester Bennington; he’s such a superstar.
We were kind of, like, come on, we can’t get him. But if we hadn’t tried, we wouldn’t have got him, so we tried, we got his ear, I was surprised to find I was on his radar and all, but through LAMB I was. He heard the song and he was in. It is a really good song. I’m sorry; I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but it’s a good goddamn song, right?
We had to iron out a couple of things legally and all that kind of stuff, but on the creative side, he was in from the jump. And I didn’t realize how in he really was, but when he showed up, I did, and that was humbling for me.”
