MINISTRY frontman Al Jourgensen is the latest guest musician to contribute to the forthcoming LIMP BIZKIT album, "Less Is More".
Jourgensen joins the likes of ex-HELMET man Page Hamilton, KORN's Head and WEEZER mastermind Rivers Cuomo on the upcoming effort, which is currently being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Rick Rubin.
According to Al, he was celebrating his birthday on the night of Oct. 9 when he quite literally ran into BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst.
"I got out of a limousine which KORN had provided for me to come and see them play the New Jersey Meadowlands," Jourgensen told Kerrang! "It was stocked with bottles of Dom Perignon, which was nice, except I was with Alcoholics Anonymous members and had to drink them all myself. I was slightly off-center. The first person I saw when I got out of the car was Fred Durst. I did the only decent thing I could do, which was to tackle him. I knocked hi head off ,and he seemed to like that approach."
Jourgensen revealed that Durst asked him to contribute vocals, guitar and production to two songs on "Less Is More" after hearing a copy of MINISTRY's "Animositisomina" backstage at the KORN show.
"He's asked me to basically do what I do," Al said. "He's going to let me run with it. I'm happy to work like that. I don't know his music, but I know him, and, you know, he tackles real easy."
"Less Is More" is slated for an Apr. 1, 2003 release through Interscope Records.
