Background and composition
A Line in the Sand was written by Linkin Park himself and produced by Mike Shinoda . It was recorded in March 2014. The band originally created the intro for the album A Thousand Suns , but there was no place for it there and was put aside until the band could use it for the new album.
Stylistically, A Line in the Sand takes up the Nu-Metal elements of the first two albums. It starts with an intro very reminiscent of A Thousand Suns , and then continues with a drum part that turns into a heavy nu-metal song that climaxes with a guitar solo.
