Kunvuk Challenges Limp Bizkit

In response to Limp Bizkit’s claim that the band is currently working on the “heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time” Australian metallers Kunvuk have issued the following statement:

“The audacity of a band like Limp Bizkit to make such an absurd statement is almost incomprehensible. It’s the same as if Nickelback were to come out and say that they are relevant to the progression of rock. Or if Marilyn Manson were to come out and say he wasn’t an overweight, passed-his-use-by-date middle-aged drag queen. Usually we wouldn’t give this kind of scum a second thought but Durst has a way of giving grown men hives. Trying to step into the domain of crazy metal? Well I guess you pinched a nerve in me boy.

"Listen LIMP BIZKIT. We want to see you try and make the heaviest, most crazy metal record you can. I guarantee that we, KUNVUK, will hand you your ass at this endeavour. We are working on our new album now. Let’s see you stick to your fucking word. You think you know crazy? Then let’s strap it on and get crazy.

"Yours in the utmost contempt, KUNVUK

"P.S. We saw your recent tribute to Jessica at Soundwave and it is not fucking cool to have her name up there while your bouncing around singing about pussy. That girl was 16 when she died. Don’t know whether you meant to pull her name down after the tribute song or not but it appeared to be a major dick move on your part to keep it up through the 'hits.'"

Joining the 60 bands already announced are Staind, Wednesday 13, Unearth, Cathedral, Shadows Fall, Heaven Shall Burn, Your Demise, Kittie, and 14 other (mostly non-metal) bands.

Hole has pulled out of the festival after frontwoman Courtney Love refused to play before Limp Bizkit. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah said on Twitter that he was "relieved we got the moody old cow off the bill.

Fight Over Limp Bizkit Reportedly Leads To Murder

Brisbanetimes.com.au has reported that a dispute over listening to Limp Bizkit has lead to an alleged murder in Australia. An excerpt from the story follows.

A Sunshine Coast man was bashed to death, put in a shopping trolley and dumped in a creek following a drunken fight over music selection, a court has heard.

The court was told Emmanuel McPherson, 48, objected when his flatmate, James Albert Madden, played a Limp Bizkit album on Mr. McPherson's stereo.

A fight then broke out, in which Mr. Madden allegedly beat Mr McPherson to death. Mr. Madden, 24, is on trial for Mr. McPherson's murder. He pleads not guilty to the charge.

The two men and two women, Kila Jones and Lee Jolae, had been drinking at a unit they shared on Reilly Road at Nambour on May 25, 2009 when the violence broke out.

The dispute reportedly began when Mr McPherson told Mr Madden not to touch his stereo and told him to turn the CD off. A Brisbane Supreme Court jury was told Mr. Madden hit Mr. McPherson about the head with an alcohol bottle, punched him and stomped on his face as he lay on the floor.
