Battle Symphony

I been searching for the courage to face my enemies.
When I turn down the lights I hear my battle symphony all the world in front of me if my armor breaks I’ll fuse it back together
Battle symphony, please just don’t give up on me and my eyes are wide awake.

-One More Light Album (2017),ย Linkin Park

    1. It’s weird to be really grieving over someone you haven’t personally met or have a personal relationship with. Watched his interviews, he has really a lot going on in his head prior the suicide. Grabe! It’s really not fame, women, money or power that matters… what’s inside of your soul talaga eh!

      1. Yeah, kahit nga yung kanta nilang “Heavy”. Akala ko yung tugtugan yung heavy, pero yung lyrics pala. Mukhang matagal ng may pinagdadaanan si Chester. Sayang, kung kelan may bagong album na sila at kung kelan magsisimula na yung Asia Tour nila saka pa nangyari yan. I know its hard to replace Chester, but at the same time sana hindi pa sila mag disband after this incident.

      2. The Album is his suicide note. Most songs are personal to them as a band, yung Invisible song yun ni Mike S. sa mga anak niya. The rest is Chester’s goodbye to us. His last tour he was very attached to the audience as if bidding goodbye… ganto pala feeling ng namatay member the Beatles way back, haha! Siguro in the past life isa din tayo sa mga naghihinagpis noon, haha!!

  1. Hahah.. Baka nga. Dahil tuloy sa blog post mo na ito, mula pa kagabi na-LSS na ako sa Battle Symphony. Yun lang paulit-ulit sa utak ngayon. Ang masaklap, puro chorus lang. ๐Ÿ˜€ Do you think its a good idea for LP to look for another vocalist kapalit ni Chester? Or mas prefer mo na mag disband na lang sila kesa humanap ng replacement?

    1. LP will be very much different without Chester. Wag na lang siguro? I think one of the reasons why he left eh para ma redeem ang Linkin Park

      1. I think for me its the end of it. Parang Beatles lang, they did not replaced John Lennon… Medyo madami critics last album ng LP when they shifted from NuRock to Pop.

      2. Sabagay, weird feeling din siguro yun sa mga LP fans kung may papalit kay Chester. Just imagine kunyari Incubus without Brandon Boyd. Pero dito kase sa Pinas may mga instances ng ganyan wherein nagcontinue pa din ang band kahit umalis na yung vocalist.
        Look at Rivermaya, sabi nila its over na nung nawala si Bamboo. Pero until now nandyan pa din sila, from Rico Blanco, Jason Fernandez, to Mark Escueta, etc..
        Another great example din yung Southborder, mula kay Brix, Luke, Vince & Duncan, and now Kell Gatdula. Ang 6Cyclemind from Ney naging si Tutti. Ang Sandwich, from Marc Abaya naging si Raymund Marasigan. And so far, tanggap naman yun ng ibang fans.
        But if its really over for LP, at least they already cemented their legacy. At sabi nga sa kanta nila, “in the end it doesn’t even matter.” โ˜บ

      3. Oo, affected din ako. Kaya nga ang haba ng reply ko eh. Heheh.. Yah, hindi pwede si Mike kase pang second voice at rap lang sya. Pwede sila magpa-audition na lang just like what Rivermaya & Southborder did. I’m sure marami dyan ang kaboses ni Chester. Its up to LP kung gusto nila yun, basta I will still support them all the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

      4. Ok, what makes it worst on my part? Well, Chester happens to be the 4th death to whom I am dealing grief and grieving with. Una Papa ko whom I have not talked to for months! 2nd Aunt ko, Chester Bennington and lastly, Uncle ko. Its getting too heavier to bear every day.

      5. I’m sorry to hear that, Rovi. I know that’s really hard to bear. But just entrust everything to God and He will take care of the rest. Will include you in my prayers.

      6. Haha! Pansin ko nga, it’s great that you have had an avenue to vent out your grieving here in WordPress. Basta para sakin Chester is a legend that no one can replace.

      7. Yes, WordPress has a very different platform than other sites like FB, Twitter, IG, etc. Pansin ko lang dito sa WP, people interact with each other despite the vast amount of space ng Internet in itself. Dito thoughts and feelings mo muna ang naiintroduce bago ang identity mo as a person ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, what’s your name? haha Mine’s Rovi. — mga ganyang example! haha

      8. Nice to meet you, too! haha! Mga sawi sa pagpapatiwakal ni Chester… Hey! Have you seen him perform One More Light in one of their Album debut shows? Grabe ang hinagpis niya dun! Wait I’ll check the Youtube title.

      9. Hindi ko pa yun napapanood. Actually parang ayoko pa manood ng mga LP concerts ngayon kase parang nakakalungkot lalo. Latest ko lang na pinanood yung nasa subway sila, Grand Central yata yun. Mukhang masaya naman si Chester dun. Di halata na may pinagdadaanan pala. Swerte ng mga tao dun, nakanood sila ng malapitan tapos libre pa. Heheh.. Sige para sayo watch ko later yang One More Light.

      10. Watch mo, Naah may interview siya last February na depressed na siya. Magaling siya mag tago ng depression nya, kaya ganun

    1. Napanood ko na just now. Oo nga noh, emotional siya while singing One More Light. Sobrang close talaga siguro nila ni Cornell kaya bukod sa kinopya niya yung pag suicide nito, tinaon pa niya ito sa mismong birthday ni Cornell. So sad..

  2. Oo nga eh, ramdam mo yung pain. Haayss.. Naku, pasensya na napahaba yata comment ko dito. Hehehe. By the way, I nominated you pala sa Awesome Blogger Award. ๐Ÿ™‚ Check my latest post.

    1. Heey nooo! Am not that active dito sa WordPress lately esp now I’m going through things. Hala naman ikaw eh. But, thanks for nominating though!
