Lamb of God’s Mark Morton + Chester Bennington Collaboration Will Eventually Be Released


Back in April of 2017, Lamb of God’s Mart Morton teased a collaboration he was working on with Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. Only three months later Bennington would take his own life, and the project was shelved indefinitely.

Fans of both acts have understandably been curious as to the status of the recordings, and one took to Twitter over the weekend to ask Morton himself… who responded by saying the collaboration will one day see the light of day:

“Chester and I made some really cool music together that we were both SUPER stoked about. And you will hear it!”

I can only imagine the complications involved in dealing with Chester’s estate and all the grief that came along with his death, so it’s no wonder this project hasn’t been high up on the list for his family to tackle. But it’s good to know we’ll eventually hear the fruits of the Josh Wilbur-helmed sessions, especially given they were some of Chester’s final (maybe the final?) recordings.

Morton released a couple of solo tracks earlier in 2017, a bluesy, instrumental number called “Snowbound” with Clutch Jean-Paul Gaster on drums and one in a similar vein called “Love Heals.”
