Feature: Limp Bizkit Surprise With "Endless Slaughter"

Limp Bizkit lock and load "Endless Slaughter" with surprises.
The group's latest track is unlike anything in its sizable catalog or any other music out there right now, period. It's unbridled in the best way possible, weaving together schizophrenic raps from Fred Durst, wonderfully warped riffing courtesy of Wes Borland's, John Otto's off-time percussive stomp, and the inimitable bass wallop of Sam Rivers. Musically, it could very well be a devilish crossroads between Pantera, Primus, and Beastie Boys. However, it's uncompromisingly Limp Bizkit.
The real point though is that these four musicians have twice as much talent and charisma as any of the faceless indie rock bands headlining Coachella's main stage, and "Endless Slaughter" proves that.
The only adequate genre for this is "art rock" and even that doesn't do it justice. This is "art rock" redefined. Within the five minutes and thirty-six seconds, they cut across genre boundaries, dropping raucous rhymes, hypnotic melodies, and some downright crushing melodies—even taking a robotic sort of Yeezus-King Crimson tour mid-song. There's literally something new and unexpected around each instrumental bend, and that's what makes this so potent.
