THIS DYING HOUR - Release New Video For LINKIN PARK/JAY-Z's Cover Mash-Up "Points Of Authority / 99 Problems / One Step Closer"

UK-based Metalcore band This Dying Hour have released a new single, a cover of LINKIN PARK/JAY-Z's "Points Of Authority / 99 Problems / One Step Closer".

The band commented:

"On Thursday 20th July 2017, the world lost a living legend.

It is absolutely crazy to believe that we live in a world without Chester Bennington in it. Chester Bennington through Linkin Park provided a torch in a world of darkness to millions across the world. He is living proof that there is warmth, compassion, trust, love and respect for everyone in this world.

Doing a Linkin Park cover was a no-Brainer for This Dying Hour however selecting a song that demonstrated our love for Chester Bennington and Linkin Park but also captured the spirit of This Dying Hour was the tough part.

Jay-Z’s original vocal on this track depicting the struggles he faced in life just for looking different carries a message that not only awarded him a Grammy but reminds us all the fight for equality continues. Not just racial equality but equality for all. For that reason we decided to use the lyrics in their original integrity.

Ultimately, we had a lot of fun producing this cover and although we will never be a “preachy” band, this has given us the opportunity to continue Chester and Jay-Z’s message in the positive way it was intended."
