Latest Limp Bizkit News
Below is our complete Limp Bizkit news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
My biggest issue with metal in the 2010s is that in contrast to the past three decades, there's just a lack of creativity. Newer metalcore is being increasingly influenced by nu-metal and post-hardcore as the new musicians who are in their 20s and 30s are now playing music that's entirely an amalgam of what they grew up with as teens rather than creating anything new.
Blackgaze was novel for the first few years but now feels like the light beer version of black metal at this point that doesn't have the same edge that metal is supposed to have. I'm not sure if I want black metal to have a kinder, gentler, dare I say, “cuddlier” face when compared to the antisocial behavior that defined the second wave. When I hear a band like Alcest or Deafheaven, I don't feel like these are maniacs with serious mental issues precisely because it sounds way too calculated and professional for my aging ears.
Djent is nice but often feels too monotonous to really do justice to how technical it is. For, “progressive metal” the songwriting lacks the same level of unexpected changes in direction that make progressive rock acts like Rush and Yes so appealing. Yeah, Djent is heavy but it's also often predicable when unconventional songwriting is half of what separates metal and makes it so special and unique. Blackened sludge on the othe rhand is only going to appeal to people who want extremely raw production... who will never be great enough in number to establish a trend rather than a fad. More...

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.'"
American nu metal veterans Limp Bizkit have announced that they have begun work on a brand new EP entitled, "The Unquestionable Truth (Part 2,)" which as the title suggests, is the follow up to their 2006 EP, "The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1)"
Frontman Fred Durst has boldly described the record as, "The heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time." The EP will be released through the bands new label, Cash Money Records, though no release date has been confirmed as of this time.
Limp Bizkit reunited in early 2009 and released their first album featuring their "classic" lineup in eleven years in the summer of last year in the form of "Gold Cobra," which topped the Billboard Hard Rock Albums Chart.
