The Catalyst

Even if I’m less and less fan of the music they’ve been producing recently, Linkin Park still stays as one of my favorite bands of all time. Their sound is just unique, and frontmen Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda have so much personality.

The band recently released the video for their first single, The Catalyst, for their fourth studio album, A Thousand Suns, which was released today. The video, directed by Joseph Hahn, the band’s DJ, is as unique as Linkin Park’s sound. Taking place in a smokey, low-lit environment, the video presents a lot of various super slow-motion shots of all the bands member playing, including Bennington singing in water as if he was drowning, and Shinoda performing motionless on the back seat of a car.

The look, feel, glitchy transitions, colors and editing of this video make it something special. It is definitely one of the most visually creative videos of the year.
