Lamb Of God gitarist Mark Morton heeft een lyricvideo uitgebracht voor de track “Cross Off“, waar wijlen Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) de vocals voor heeft verzorgd.
Op het solo-debuut ANESTHETIC zijn verschillende gast-artiesten te horen, Morton zegt het volgende over specifiek de samenwerking met Chester:
Chester Bennington. He just had a lot of creative input at the ready when he came into the studio. That was my initial like, ‘Wow’. He had told me he really liked the song, and we had communicated, but I’d never really hung out with Chester until when we started tracking.
I was really impressed for a guy at his level, at the place in the career he was at, someone of his stature and celebrity, to have that level of humility and commitment to come in there and treat this like it would be a Linkin Park song, or his own song or whatever.
I was pretty blown away by that. And it was immediate. Fifteen minutes after we met, we were standing over a table, one on either side, each with scraps of paper and pencil, crossing off words and trying different rhyme schemes and stuff.
And then after the track was laid out, then we took a breath and started talking about more personal stuff – real-life shit. And yeah… he surprised me the most.
