Surprise surprise surprise. Folks at LPLive have unearthed eight previously unreleased demos from late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots singer Chester Bennington to mark what would have been his 42nd birthday.
LPLive wrote, “On Chester’s birthday, LPLive and LinkinParkBR are beyond delighted to provide a glimpse into his past as he was just beginning his solo project (what would later become Dead By Sunrise). In continuing the #MakeChesterProud movement, we felt that this release would provide a celebratory feeling for fans and friends of Chester’s.
The CD, simply titled ‘Demos’, features nine tracks.
For the other seven songs… all seven are raw unmastered demos in some form. Some have bigger differences than the final release versions (“Fire” with the original demo form, ‘My Suffering’ with the screaming verses) while some are very similar to what ended up being released (‘Morning After’).
