The new Limp Bizkit album is months from release, but frontman Fred Durst is already proclaiming it his favorite. "The album is so f***ing heavy it hurts," he writes on the band's official Web site. "I have found my favorite Limp Bizkit album and you have never heard it."
Durst says his single-minded focus in finishing the disc has forced him to block out the world around him. "Thanksgiving is creeping up here in the States and all I want to do is make molten metal," he reports. "The holidays are not registering on my radar these days."
To that end, band members are indulging in the remote Northern California location chosen for recording and not shaving during the sessions. "Something about being isolated in the woods and dealing with the demons makes me want to throw away all the daily rituals of an ordinarily groomed lifestyle," Durst says. "It feels crazy [and] at the same time helps bring out the grizzly madman lurking in the dark corners of my soul."
Durst says all the songs intended for the as-yet-untitled set have already been written. "We stepped into this environment and went at it non-stop and found ourselves lying in the middle of a warfield of tracks," he says. "From beginning to end, it is relentless."
What a joke. I hope this provides a good laugh.
