Limp Bizkit To Make Heaviest Metal Album Of All Time??
That's hard to believe. I never did and never will consider the Fred Durst-fronted quintet metal. His earlier days were spent making rap and hip hop, and then he slowly turns to rock and metal? I'm not buying it. You should stay in the genre you start out as. Despite my little opinions though Durst has just announced that the band will be making the heaviest metal record of all time.
The band's latest album, Gold Cobra released last summer, and already Durst is planning a seventh album, whose title will actually follow-up their fifth album The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1). The article states:
...the band is working on what he called the heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time, "The Unquestionable Truth, Part 2", which Durst says will probably be an EP. That will service our core and counter balance these big, fat, ginormous hip-rock songs we're going to do. We're gonna give out some mayhem and madness...to those people who really lean that way with us.
I've never liked Limp Bizkit, and now I really don't. It's an insult to the heavy metal Gods to even put hip-hop in the same vicinity at metal, and to go from one to the other. To make matters worse, the band is currently collaborating with the worst rap artist of all time in my opinion, Lil Wayne. It's fine if they want to do stuff like that, but don't bring a genre you have no business playing into it.
Cash Money Records, the band's newest label, just further proves it's all a joke. Metal isn't about cash money and no respectable metal label would ever be caught dead with a name like this.
Durst states, It sounds like a monster; it literally sounds dangerous. It sounds like that left of center, that place of discomfort that created rock 'n' roll, created the (heavy) metal, where it all spawned from.
Nothing that disgrace to music Lil Wayne has ever or will ever do could ever be compared or even slightly thought of as metal. These statements just pain me. The entire article can be read here.
