    LP fans never seize to amaze me.
    "OMG i don't like this artwork", "Looks like LT"
    Then someone gives the picture some different colours and everyone is like:
    "YES that is perfect"

    Really if your only complain is the colour, you might as well don't complain at all. Just paint the artwork and have it your way instead of ranting about how it is leftover art from LT.
    Last time i checked ATS and MTM were white and black as well.
    And i don't know if you guys see the connection but Bow and arrow --> Hunter --> The Hunting Party --> :bradwink:

    While the color change can make a big difference, kinda have to agree with this guy.

    Hey man, if I'm not happy about the cover, I'll say it, no big deal here.

    But if we wanna get into more details, personnaly, my only complaint is not the color. I'm not a fan of the whole "put some illustration on a white underground" idea, which is something LP has done since MTM. Going through my music library, there are so many artworks that I find amazing, and I'm a little bummed that my favorite band isn't delivering on that side recently, at least in my opinion.

    But aside from that, it's only what it is, a cover, and I'm super excited about the music which is coming in 2 months :)

    Is this the official Album cover or just an artwork, which will be in the booklet? It's pretty confusing to me^^.

    You, Sir, had made me realized part of the reason why I couldn't enjoy reading the latest updates on their album. It's almost sickening how Mike always repeats how loud, agressive, un-mainstream this album's gonna be, and how sick he is for music being too poppy. I'm not a major pop fan, but I don't like the way he describes this new album. Linkin Park is just Linkin Park. They're different without having to try. Why should make a comparation and disrespecting another genres/musicians. I like doing that in my own head, but seeing someone I idolize does it proudly, it just makes me wonder, what was it that's so great about him? what made me admire him that much? :/

    Yes, that's why i thought, it is the official cover at first, but always when i read "artwork", i imagine all the things inside the booklet and not the album cover^^.

    Rule #1: Never underestimate the stupidity and pettiness of Linkin Park fans.

    You can never set the bar too low.

    For everyone complaining about the album artwork, we could have gotten this:

    Not to mention no singular color represents hunting more than another, nature covers the entire color spectrum.

    I actually like that cover. It's simple, and to the point. :lol: It's all mysterious and shit on what it actually sound like.

    The color creates a big part of the atmosphere a image conveys.
    For me it's just feels the Hunting Party could do with a bit more aggressive color. Even the whole motive of that bowman would be emphasized more, I think.
    But people interpret color differently and many just don't care about the color.

    But it's definitely the music we're waiting for. So... let's not bitch about that :D
