UK metalcore outfit From Inside who recently released their new EP The New Era have taken it upon themselves to offer up a cover of Linkin Park’s new single, “Heavy (feat. Kiiara)”.
The band says, “Linkin Park is without the doubt the band that defines our childhood. When we first heard their new song, “Heavy,” we really wanted to relate to it, but without those killer distorted guitars, Mr. Hahn’s scratching, or Mike Shinoda’s rapping, it just wasn’t the Linkin Park that has inspired us so much in our lives. We felt compelled to write a tribute to the band that has released those lives changing album- Hybrid Theory and Meteora, So we all agreed to take it upon ourselves to head straight into the studio and put our own spin on how we feel “Heavy” could have sounded if they had approached it in the same vein as their earlier album. We simply wanted to put the heavy side back into the LInkin Park Sound.”
