Chester: Life Before Linkin Park, By His Friends, Family & Bandmates

Plus, All Time Low, Alkaline Trio, Nergal, Trivium, Emma Ruth Rundle, Tom G. Warrior, Milk Teeth and loads more!

Chester Bennington’s Linkin Park years are the stuff of legend. But his was not a story that began with Hybrid Theory. For the first time ever, family, friends and former bandmates have opened up on a part of his journey never previously documented, sharing stories and photographs that offer the world an understanding of the boy who would become the man that touched millions of lives…

Plus, to celebrate the side of Chester this is more well known, there’s an epic art print of the man himself onstage, captured in all his unmistakable glory. 

Elsewhere in the mag, Dan Andriano lifts the lid on Alkaline Trios surprise new music, Tom G. Warrior talks black metal, death, art, smuggling and sex toys, we untangle the enigma wrapped in a riddle that is Behemoth and Me And That Mans Nergal, and Becky Blomfield reveals how she pulled Milk Teeth back from the brink.

In the reviews section, Baltimore pop-punk champs All Time Low get back to business on their dazzling eighth album, and Aussie punk dirtbags The Chats lower the tone and raise a smile on their ragged debut.

There are also six ace posters to give you something new to look at in isolation: Boston Manor, Nine Inch Nails, Enter Shikari, Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, twenty one pilots, and Frank Carter.

All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang!, which you can get anywhere in the world through Kerrang.Newsstand.co.uk. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, April 1 from all good newsagents and supermarkets.
