Big Dumb Face
Langerwartetes Nebenprojekt von Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit). Borland tobt sich in Mike Patton-Tradition zwischen Death Metal, Noise, Disco und karibischem Funk aus.

"Where Is Duke Lion? He's Dead... " ist das langerwartete Nebenprojekt von Wes Borland, den man als maskierten und komplett schwarzäugigen Gitarristen von Limp Bizkit kennt. Borland hält bisher sein Versprechen, die härteste Scheibe abzuliefern, die er je gemacht hat.
Wes Borland scheint sich hier als der Mike Patton von Limp Bizkit zu entpuppen. Ähnlich wie der Faith No More Sänger sich in den 90ern in diversen Nebenprojekten zwischen Grindcore, Kirmes, Ska und Filmmusik austobte, legt auch Borland hier los: "grotesque southern country ballad with cinematic rural soundscape, disco funk, and finally, grind/deathcore. You really do have to hear it to believe it."
Sogar karibisch-angehauchte Schunkeltracks mit Steeldrums fehlen nicht. Großer Spaß.

Where Is Duke Lion? He's Dead... is the long awaited new album from Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland's side project Big Dumb Face. Rarely has a side project provided such a creative outlet for the madcap, surreal and bizarre. WIDL?HD is an album which redefines musical eccentricity, genre-less and unbounded - noise, death metal, electronic, steel pan samples, grindcore and more all collide in a maelstrom of musical images. This is not to say though that the record is without direction; indeed, the pacing and track order makes for a compelling listen – from the rip-snorting Zargon Moth or the off-kilter melodicism of Jesus Retreats to the relatively more tranquil The Blood Maiden or the whack-ballad of WDATGGG. Unsurprisingly, for an artist overflowing with as many ideas as Wes Borland (with his brother Scott), WIDL?HD is a multi-layered record which rewards on multiple listens. Listen once and you’re carried away on a tide of musical energy and riffs; twice, and you begin to appreciate the unique production, mixing and sheer level of varied sounds and samples within. Nowhere is this better summed up than in the behemoth of a closer: Whipping The Hodeus. An eighteen-minute monster, the track combines a grotesque southern country ballad with cinematic rural soundscape, disco funk, and finally, grind/deathcore. You really do have to hear it to believe it.
