“Cross Off”

Mark Morton featuring Chester Bennington

(Single Review)

Guitarist Mark Morton—better known as the heavyweight fret machine behind Metal outfit Lamb Of God—recently announced his debut solo album Anasthetic. “Cross off “ is the second release from the album and it features the late Chester Bennington, who sadly passed away at the tender age of 41 (three months after recording in July 2017).
