According to Chester Bennington in a recent MTV.com interview, the new album will be completely devoid of the nu-metal sound that made them popular back when they burst onto the scene in the year 2000. "We're going for the music that inspired us, rather than the nü-metal type of sound," frontman Chester Bennington said "We're ripping that out. It's completely gone." When questioned about this surprising turn of events, Chester went on to say: "We've always been known for mixing a lot of different genres of music and not pigeonholing ourselves in one particular sound, but by doing so, we've kind of pigeonholed ourselves into our sound," Bennington said backstage at Saturday's Inland Invasion concert where he performed with Alice in Chains, "It sounds strange, but there's a common thread that people are going to expect, and we're trying to pull that out of the new music." Finally, Chester also shot down the rumor that has been flying around in regards to Linkin Park putting out a possible double album, due to their large library of recorded songs for the new disc: "The whole double-album thing is like the kiss of death," he said. "Not that it's not a great idea in theory, but when you put it out, it's just not."
