Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst served up a treat for fans online on Wednesday, November 24, when he gave them a sneak peek of the band's first record in over 10 years. The group has been blighted by fall outs between Durst and guitarist Wes Borland, who quit Limp Bizkit in 2001 and again in 2006 after a number of well-publicized fights.
His departure marked the start of a long hiatus for the group, but the pair healed its rift and reunited the act with bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto and DJ Lethal in February 2009. They began recording their fifth studio album, "Gold Cobra "- the follow-up to 2000's "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" - six months later.
And Durst gave fans a peek at its progress during a live web chat on Wednesday, playing snippets from a series of tunes, including a song featuring Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon. Durst also confirmed the project would feature an appearance by KISS star Gene Simmons, who introduces the album in spoken word, by playing the track.
Simmons was heard saying, "The oh so element Gold Cobra. Shimmering venomously with beauty and grace as it slithers along its path to inevitable chaos. Whomever falls prey to this seductive serpent shall be forever scarred." However, Durst admitted the band has yet to select which tracks will make the record, telling viewers: "59 songs and only 11 are on the Cobra."
"Gold Cobra" is expected for release in 2011.
