Rap nu-metal band Limp Bizkit, the greatest group of musicians that has ever walked amongst us mere mortals, has made a post on their Facebook page that features supposed lyrics from a track off the band’s upcoming album Stampede Of The Disco Elements. The followup to 2011′s Gold Cobra, SOTDE will continue the band’s legacy of brilliant songwriting and lyrical poetry, all held together by the operatic, engaging, 14-octave voice of Fred Durst.

Black Light Burns, the side project of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, will be releasing a new album entitled Lotus Island on Jan. 21st. The album comes shortly after the release of 2012′s The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall (review). You can hear samples of the album on Amazon, where you can also pre-order it.
Borland gave a lengthy description of the album, stating, “It’s 40 minutes long and includes 7 instrumental tracks, 3 brand new songs, and a complete remix and remaster of the song ‘It Rapes All In It’s Path’. The album can be listened to on it’s own or experienced along with the 1973 Alejandro Jodorowsky film ‘The Holy Mountain’ as an alternative soundtrack during the first 40 minutes (before and up to the point where the movie launches into the individual stories of the most powerful people in the world). I wasn’t sure at first whether or not to be forthright with the album being an alternative soundtrack to The Holy Mountain, but, in these times of short attention spanned entertainment, instant gratification, and a general lack of mystery of any kind where there’s nothing left to hide without seeming cliche and a kitten falling on it’s face gets more attention than an artist’s heart and soul poured out into any medium you can shake a stick at, I decided to just go ahead and let the cat out of the bag before the bag ends up in the river and you can just (hopefully) enjoy it for what it is. I’m really excited about it, and if I can neatly wrap up this announcement gone rant without sounding like I’ve thrown my hands up in the air while saying “fuck it” (which I have not), I’m incredibly happy for you to hear it. It’s also my first shot at mixing a record, which has been a mountain I’ve been trying to climb for a while, pun intended.”

Black Light Burns, the avant-garde heavy rock/metal project from Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, has released a video for “How To Look Naked”, which comes off the latest release The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall (review). The video is NSFW due to nudity and strong sexual themes but once you’re able to watch it, I HIGHLY recommend you check it out! It’s a visual smorgasbord of horror-inspired images that are more akin to David Lynch and Dario Argento than, say, Marcus Nispel or Wes Craven. The video, which you can see below, was directed by Agata Alexander and includes Aiden Starr.

Next week sees the release of the long awaited sophomore album from Black Light Burns, The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall (review). In anticipation of this release, Bloody-Disgusting got the chance to catch up with mastermind Wes Borland, who is also the guitarist of platinum-selling band Limp Bizkit, to discuss his passion for horror and his love of painting. Check out this exclusive interview below. READ MORE
Black Light Burns, the project fronted by Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, has teamed up with CraveOnline to stream the new single “How To Look Naked”. The song comes off the upcoming album The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall (review). You can listen to the song below.
Borland offers his thoughts, “Once again I have been asked to say something about a piece of music that should speak for itself. This song may be about you. You are ashamed of yourself. You filter everything in fear of not having the love you put out into the world reciprocated. You have no tact. You are a bag of hammers in desperate need of being dropped off of a cliff. You’ve grown into a worthless consumer living off a steady diet of bullsh*t. You reside entirely in a bubble but constantly look for confirmation by playing up your existence to be a shallow reflection of the faux heroes you vicariously live your life through. Should I beat the horse anymore? Has the carpet been thoroughly pulled out from beneath the feet of the song? Is any word written here relevant to any part of the song it’s referring to? Anything is possible. Giving quotes for singles feels like whispering sweet nothings to a maple tree. I think I just got sap on my face. I’d mostly like to thank CraveOnline for hosting and debuting the song for us. “How To Look Naked.” Enjoy.” READ MORE
Wes Borland is known for being eccentric, off-the-wall, and, most importantly, one hell of a guitar player. For as much as Limp Bizkit is ridiculed, it cannot be denied that their songs are infectious and the guitar hooks huge and powerful. Then there is the work he did with Big Dumb Face, which is nothing short of hilarious. But it is his work on Black Light Burns where Borland really gets the opportunity to shine and let his personality truly come forth.
The Moment You Realize You’re Going To Fall is the follow-up to 2007′s Cruel Melody. With 15 tracks and over an hour of material, does Borland’s latest effort demonstrate his genius or have the ideas begun to stagnate? READ MORE

For the final installment of Bloody-Disgusting at Rock on the Range 2010, I got the opportunity to sit down with Wes Borland, guitarist of Limp Bizkit and singer/guitarist/bassist/keyboardist/programmer/producer (whew!) of Black Light Burns. We spoke about Wes being back in Limp Bizkit, the status of the second Black Light Burns album and the influence of horror on him as an artist and a musician. Unfortunately, due to Wes being absurdly popular and everyone wanting an interview, we got cut a bit short. However, keep your fingers crossed as there might be more articles in the future coming from Wes! Check after the jump for the interview! READ MORE
