Life is something unpredictable, and death is something inescapable, but with the heartbreaking end of Chester, died a whole decade of art! He was one of the greatest losses to the international music industry, and we could do nothing! He went “one step closer” to end, and what we can do was, just stay “Numb”!
Well, every single album, every single song and every single word that Chester Bennington ever uttered, had his soul into it. Since his debut, he has always been the man of emotions and the voice of the depressed. The most dexterous frontman ever, he will always stay in our hearts! Here are some of the most heart throbbing Linkin Park performances that Chester ever delivered!
One step closer:
The rap world was never so meaningful until Linkin Park came in. Their confident, crisp and melding raps took the metal world to another level. Now people were no more interested in those sloppy- fuzzy worships of their peers. With the first ever debut, the band achieved worldwide recognition and proved that they are the ultimate winners. With Chester’s maddening voice, it was clear that no one could ever speak when he is on the stage.
A place for my head:
This is one of the most genre-mashing numbers from their album Hybrid theory which owed as much as Sepultura or Santana ever did. The song features Chester’s grunge-y vocal that seemingly jumps out from his diaphragm. If you have ever considered a vocalist as versatile, then you would have probably not heard this track at all.
This track doesn’t even need to be mentioned! The softer side that Chester always had, but was hidden behind his howling voice, came out in this number. The track allowed him to walk out and get into his comfort zone. The real Chester is whom you would see in Numb! The emotional potency that he had, never ever came out in his performances, till the song hit the world platform.
Breaking the habit:
A desire to escape and seemingly teenage run through can be witnessed in every world of this track. The song is a perfect cocktail of his angister voice and melodic shine that created a mark in the world. He was such an incomparable vocalist, that the whole world sobbed over his decision of ending life.
There was a time when Linkin Park was slipping down the realm of tepid alt-rock that was about to plague the further years of their career. Thus, the guitarist role was then handed over to someone else, and Chester took the responsibility of full stage. His bustling speeches and heavenly voice had something unique that you would have never heard before. His music and lyrics, always explained his feelings towards life.
So these were few of the Chester Bennington performances that took over the world. The ultimate rock and metal music lovers are yet in a shock that he is no more to express out their depression, anxiety and take them away from such a harsh world with his amazing voice. Yet, he will always be in our memories!
