Stadium shaking head movers Linkin Park have announced they are giving away Hybrid Theory for a limited time with Google Play in thanks to fans.

Our first album, Hybrid Theory, was made with all the love, passion, and naïveté that an artist can give to their first recordings. We are humbled and grateful that it has been embraced so widely, and we still find it hard to believe it became the biggest selling rock album of the century. As a thank you to our fans, we’ve partnered with Google Play to give you Hybrid Theory for free. –Linkin Park

Linkin Park offer “The Hunting Party” for free on Google Play

Linkin Park‘s recent The Hunting Party is by far one of their better and more bold releases (up there with Meteora for moment after attention grabbing moment). There are earmarks of every era of their sound but a willingness to push themselves on tracks like “Rebellion” (with D. Malakian from System Of A Down) or the surprisingly heavy “The Keys To The Kingdom” that opens the record with a serious punk roar and drums infused into their alt rock/nu-metal sound. This album is a lot of fun if you can get your heads out of your snobby butts for a minute and admit it rules. The percussive twists and turns alone shows their “hybrid theory” of stadium alt rock and hip hop fusion still has staying power and room to evolve. Shit, I’m also just glad I have a record in my library that has both Rakim and Page Hamilton on it.

Just in time for the holidays, the Google Play store is having a special Linkin Park sale. Get The Hunting Party FREE now for a limited time. You can also purchase other Linkin Park albums for only $1.99 each. Get your albums now at: http://bit.ly/1zt969H

Mall, the debut feature film by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, will appear in theaters nationwide starting this Friday, October 17th. Co-starring Vincent Donofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/producer/screenwriter), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Cameron Monaghan (TVs Shameless), Mall examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting. The film will also be made available for purchase through www.mallthemovie.com on the same day of its theatrical release via Paragon Pictures in association with Silver Lining Entertainment.

As a member of the multi-platinum Grammy-winning rock band, Hahn is responsible for the beats, programming and keyboard heard in Linkin Park. He has also directed as many as 30 of the bands ground-breaking music videos, and over a dozen short films and music videos for other musical acts. Now Hahn is making his full feature directorial debut with Mall, featuring a script adapted from Eric Bogosians 2001 novel of the same name by DOnofrio, Joe Vinciguerra, and Sam Bisbee. “I find it refreshing to see this kind of point-of-view in contrast to today’s society that interacts digitally”, Hahn recently explained to Mashable. “When I read this script, it felt real and refreshing to show how ugly people can be as they hide their inner beasts after cracking their facades.”

Billboard recently premiered an exclusive teaser clip from Mall, which can be viewed here:

Earlier this summer, Paragon Pictures, led by Evan Crooke, picked up the North American rights to Mall. As the theatrical distribution division of Osiris Entertainment , Paragon Pictures will release Mall nationwide. More information about Mall can be found through Facebook.com/MallMovie and Twitter at @MallMovie.

Tampa, FL’s I Kept Silent might be baby faced, but they rock in a major way. The passion and actually decent songwriting of their 2013 debut EP Precession Of The Voyager deserves to be heard by a lot more people. Gene Simmons just declared rock dead and also recently said poor people never gave him a job. 1.) while trends come and go, hard rock and metal will always be there even if it doesn’t have the market share it once did. I Kept Silent are just one example of many bands who will keep it alive. 2.) Poor people bought all your albums, Gene. I love Kiss, but don’t forget the streets.

Tangent aside, I wanted to give IKS some shine while they are in a rebuilding phase, so I hit the band up and asked the Tempfer brothers Ryan and Andre about some of their biggest influences and best moments in the band so far (hint – they’ve already shared festivals with Alice In Chains and Rob Zombie).

Hey hard rock fans…Mark Pellington has directed a very cinematic new video for Linkin Park for their song “Final Masquerade”. It is one of those all Chester type ballad vocal songs  without Shinoda dropping in. This one has some life in it and a catchy melody. Check it out at MTV HERE.

The plot seems to be that a baby werewolf or changeling (I am guessing that from the “no shape shifters” graffiti) gets reunited with family after a Courtney Love angel saves it and the band jump around a lot pretending to be screaming while Chester is actually singing a pretty melody. Not knockin’ it, as I am a fan. But that seems to be what is going on. Guessing the masquerade is that they are no longer going to hide.

I’m pissed I had to wait through a Neutrogena commercial to watch the video, but the song was enjoyable if not their best track on The Hunting Party (which is a really solid album from the chart toppers).

In other news, LP beat maker/programmer Joe Hahn has a movie coming out, his directorial feature film debut Mall. The film Mall boasts a cast starring Vincent Donofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/producer/screenwriter), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Cameron Monaghan (TVs Shameless), Peter Stormare (Fargo) and James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom). Seen through the eyes of Jeff (played by Monaghan), the film examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting, and whose lives are positively transformed as a result.

Earlier this summer, Paragon Pictures, led by Evan Crooke, picked up the North American rights to Mall. As the theatrical distribution division of Osiris Entertainment, Paragon Pictures is planning to release Mall nationwide this fall following Linkin Parks massive Carnivores Tour, kicking off on August 8 in West Palm Beach, FL.
