Limp Bizkit: 'Today's Metal Is Saturated, Repetitive, Not Sure Anyone's Doing Anything'
Following their latest Sonisphere performance, Limp Bizkit sat down with NME to discuss a thing or two, touching on the current state of metal among other things.

Guitarist Wes Borland wasn't too enthusiastic while talking about the guitar-heavy genre, dubbing it saturated and repetitive these days.

"I don't really listen to a lot of rock and metal. Everything's pretty saturated with so much music now, it's difficult to keep up with what's happening," he kicked off.

"The older I get, I tend to drift away from listening to metal. In some way, it's just repetitive, and I'm not sure if anyone's doing anything incredibly different," Wes added.

During the rest of the chat, Borland and frontman Fred Durst talked about the new album progress, sharing seemingly clashing views regarding its release. "It'll be out next month, that's what we always say," Fred jokingly noted.

"More likely it'll be out next year," Wes chipped in. "No, it'll be out this year," Durst reassured. "We see the finish line ahead and we're really happy with how it feels and sound. It's unique, very different."
