Linkin Park “Final Masquerade”

With The Hunting Party impacting at the spark of summer, Linkin Park while preparing their tour, drops the new in-depth video for “Final Masquerade”. I already think this was one of the album’s strongest outputs (truthfully, I ended up not growing into much of the harder rock stuff than this) and now have a renewed appreciation for the song after the Mark Pellington-directed visuals.

Pellington drops a series of quick cuts, images, and different scenes throughout the five minutes that tell a disjointed story that’s predominantly dark, chaotic, and apocalyptic. However, there are also the positives that shine through at the other end of the spectrum with forgiveness being a theme, and when you’ll see it you’ll agree… Thank God for that angel. Enjoy!
