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.

The Carolina Rebellion music festival will be headlined this year by Alice In Chains on May 4th and Soundgarden on May 5th. Other acts include Deftones, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Volbeat, and many more. The event will take place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.
“After wrapping up our last U.S. tour, we were planning on recharging our batteries for awhile, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with the mighty Soundgarden in what will be one of the only shows we’ll play in the U.S. this year,” says Tim Mcllrath of Rise Against.
Michael Poulsen of Volbeat comments, “In Europe and the U.S., we have enjoyed the experiences that come from being a part of the festival environment, just as the fans do. Looking forward to Carolina Rebellion!”
Tickets are available starting Feb. 8th here. You can see the full schedule below. READ MORE
Thrash metal legends Anthrax recently announced the shocking news that lead guitarist Rob Caggiano had quit the band, just a month before a heavy touring schedule was set to begin. However, the band also stated that they would not be hosting auditions for a new lead guitarist. The reason for that is now obvious as it has been announced that Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais will be filling in as lead guitarist while the band tours over the next few months.
Scott Ian states, “Jon is a bro and he’s also a total fucking ripper. I’ve worked with him twice before on side projects and he tears it up. I’m excited to have him on my right burning up the stage with Anthrax. 13′s gonna be a good year.”
Donais adds, “I grew up on Anthrax, they’re the thrash scene, they’re one of The Big Four, I’d be crazy to not want to play with them. Initially, Rob called and told me he was leaving the band, and asked if I’d be interested in filling in. Then Scott called me and everything fell into place. Rob and I are using Skype to work on solos and other guitar parts, so he’s being great. I also have to give special thanks to my band – Brian, Matt, Jason and Ed – who have been incredibly supportive and encouraged me to do this.”
You can see all tour dates that Donais will be on below. READ MORE
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.”
Band names. Some can be amazing and incredibly catchy and memorable. Others, however, can make you do a second take and whisper, “What the hell?” These are names that also stick with you throughout your life but not because of the band’s music, oh no. Rather, it’s because the name is so awful or problematic that you shudder at the very thought of bringing up these names.
So, below I’ve come up with 10 band names that are simply terrible. Note that this has nothing to do with the quality of their music, but simply is a thought about their name. Check it out! READ MORE
So, the latest Limp Bizkit song/video, “Lightz”, has been “leaked” onto YouTube (looks mighty clean and high quality to me…). Strangely, the song is labelled as “City Of Angels” on the video. The song supposedly comes from the band’s upcoming album Stampede Of The Disco Elephants, which will be released via Lil Wayne‘s label Cash Money Records (what a god awful name).
Look, stylistically, the video is okay at points. Wes, as always, has a really unique and fascinating costume and the gasmask/BDSM girls are pretty awesome looking. But what’s with DJ Lethal picking up his equipment and turning it over and over, as though he’s going, “What the fu…GUYS! What the hell does this thing do? I can’t remember!”
Now, surprise of surprises, the song is awful. Not just awful, but really, truly terrible, vile, crime-against-humanity type awful. It’s supposed to be one of those “feel good” songs, at least in the melody. It’s one of those songs that you could’ve sworn you’ve heard a million times before and not even once was it good. They need to get the anger they had in “Boiler” back and then I’ll be hooked.
Check out the video below and let me know your thoughts in the comments. READ MORE
After a big public feud via Twitter, DJ Lethal and Fred Durst have reconciled and Lethal is back in Limp Bizkit. Taking to Twitter, Lethal apologized and offered explanations for his behavior earlier this year, stating, “I want to clear the air about limp bizkit. I have had some personal issues over the last few years that have led to some outbursts. [A] lot of the things I said about the band and fred was out of pain and anger. None of which I really meant deep down inside.” Below is a full transcription of the tweets that explain the situation.
Also via Twitter, Lethal mentioned that the band would be entering the studio to began recording the new Limp Bizkit album today (Monday, Oct. 15th). This will be the follow-up to 2011′s Gold Cobra (review). READ MORE

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.
Make sure to check out our interview with Wes Borland here. 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

The Japanese, lucky people that they are, are going to be getting a deluxe edition of Limp Bizkit‘s Gold Cobra (review here), which will feature extra tracks, including the Mathematics produced Combat Jazz featuring Raekwon. No joke, it’s pretty good stuff. As Some Kind Of Awesome put it, it’s got a very Wu-Tang feel about it. Check it out after the jump and let me know your thoughts! READ MORE
There are a handful of bands that incite such a violent reaction as Limp Bizkit. There’s Nickelback, Insane Clown Posse, U2 and that’s all I can really think of off the top of my head. These bands are generally reviled or mocked endlessly and, for some reason, are wildly successful. Nickelback consistently puts out platinum selling albums, ICP continues to somehow afford the ability to make movies and U2 manages to put out the same sounding album over and over again with great success. As for Limp Bizkit, people mock the ever-living hell out of them and they laugh it off all the way to the bank. So, how does the band fare on Gold Cobra, their latest endeavor? Well, check out after the jump for the answer.
There is less than a week left before Limp Bizkit‘s Gold Cobra hits shelves and the guys want to pump you up by releasing a video for the title track! You can check it out after the jump and keep your eyes peeled for an official BD review!
The release date for Limp Bizkit‘s Gold Cobra is just around the corner. As if a new Limp Bizkit album with the original line-up isn’t building anticipation enough, the guys have released a Soundcloud player that has snippets of every song on the album. Check it out after the jump and enjoy!
With Limp Bizkit‘s Gold Cobra coming out in just a few weeks (June 28th), the band has announced three different editions of the album that you can choose from. The album will come in several configurations. The standard release will feature 13 new songs while the Deluxe Edition (available digitally only) will feature 16 new songs. Additionally, fans can purchase a physical CD that has 17 original songs exclusively at Best Buy. Check after the jump for the track list of each edition.
Durst says, “We’ve come full circle to absolutely own who we are as a band, an undisputed five piece rap rock powerhouse who crushes every stage we play.”
Limp Bizkit‘s Gold Cobra is officially slated for a June 28th release date. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m personally really excited to hear it, especially since Wes is on the record. So, to give you a taste of the new material, after the jump is a new track entitled Why Try. Check it out and let us know what you think!
The answer to this headline is no, they did not. A guy was drunk, got pissed off at his roommate and killed him over a dumb fight, that’s all. Want the details? The Brisbane Times is reporting that two men (who were roommates) and two women were hanging out when 24 year old James Madden put some Limp Bizkit on the apartment stereo. His roommate, 48 year old Emmanuelle McPherson, objected and wanted to turn off the music. Madden proceeded to break a bottle over McPherson’s head and punch and stomp on his face, killing him. The two women helped Madden bundle McPherson up, load him into a cart, take him down to a creek and then dump into the water. Although Madden has claimed his innocence, he supposedly admitted to the murder to an undercover police officer who was posing as his cellmate.
So, Fred Durst hit Twitter again and spilled the beans about the official release date for Limp Bizkit‘s upcoming album ‘Gold Cobra’. Apparently, we can expect it to come out June 7th, though again, I’ll believe it when I see it. Hopefully they got pissed when they recorded the album and it’s fully of songs of the heavy persuasion.
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst snuck in via Twitter a tentative release date of June 7th for the new LB album, ‘Gold Cobra’. I’m somewhat skeptical, but if it’s true, then I’m pretty eager to hear the new stuff. Let’s be honest guys, the music of Limp Bizkit is actually pretty sweet. Don’t believe me? Just listen to Boiler, that song kicks ass! Plus, Wes Borland is a huge horror fan, so it’s always cool to support someone in the community.
