LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"I have been in Prague, and I am still here, putting vocals on the new album. The world has so many wonders to it. The Czech people are a very interesting society. I do enjoy it. This album is dark musically already, but when mixed with the tone in the air of Prague it becomes somewhat horrifying.
"Wes [Borland, guitar], Ross [Robinson, producer], and myself have set up ProTools and a Beta 57 microphone in an old apartment right near the Charles Bridge. This is where I am connecting with the darkness. Some days are explosive, others just plain heavy from the gothic aesthetic of this city in general. We have gone to the other side a few times with absinthe to discover the unknown. As it seems the unknown is quite demanding these days.
"We have watched no television or listened to no radio. We walk everywhere we go on cobblestone streets. The beggars bow down, as if they were praying, and hold their hands out for money. Much different than the States. The weather is very cold and unforgiving. The perfect call for where my head needed to be.
"As for updates on this site or anywhere else, you know we are finishing our new album which we consider the best of LIMP BIZKIT. Definitely the heaviest and most consistent in intention. So I can only emphasize that this needs room to grow its wings on its own and does not need to have its innocence and freedom taken away by every detail that could be provided along the way until it is ready to take off on its own. That time is very near. We have created a monster that cannot be kept down for long.
"It's time to gather the troops. What do you think?"
