Linkin Park Plays With Gas In 'The Catalyst' Video

Linkin Park is playing with gas in the new video for "The Catalyst."

Video: Linkin Park's "The Catalyst"

The clip opens with lead singer Chester Bennington's screaming face appearing out of a cloud of smoke in a way eerily reminiscent of Voldemort's face shaping the clouds in the last Harry Potter movie.

The mysterious gas and slow motion are the main ingredients of the video. Co-front man Mike Shinoda drops his verses from behind a shrouded hood, while - thanks to special effects - Bennington pelts the hook and chorus full force underwater without drowning.

As the drum beat hits, teams of young people start running amidst the smoke from gas-masked assailants apparently rounding them up. Things get a little more colorful when the youths get a hold of different colored powders to fire back with, changing the previous pale yellow cloud into a mix of blues, oranges and reds.

After the smoke has settled, literally, Bennington's voice rings out "We can't be outrun" as his gasping form finally disappears beneath the murky water.
