Limp Bizkit Is Back With The Release of "Gold Cobra"!

Limp Bizkit has promised a comeback with their latest album “Gold Cobra” that will turn the world of music on its ear and I have to say after several spins of this heavy, hard-hitting, aural assault to your ear drums album they have definitely kept to their word.

Love them or hate them there is no denying the influence that Limp Bizkit has had within the music industry. They were never a band that was afraid to take risks, and that is something that seems to be missing within so much of the industry these days, with one cookie cutter band after another sticking to a formula that offers minimal variety, if any at all. After taking some time away from the band, and re-grouping to record “Gold Cobra”, the band has emerged with one of their most, if not the most solid, albums to date. The album is intense, ferocious, and impassioned and from Limp Bizkit, who could expect anything less?  In my opinion this album takes us back to the days of “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all$”, when the band sounded fresh and everyone seemed hungry for the type of aggression fueled rap/metal that only Limp Bizkit could provide. I think “Gold Cobra” would have been the album to fit nicely between “Significant Other” and “Chocolate Starfish”, but nevertheless it is here now and certainly worth the wait.

The members of Limp Bizkit bring together undeniable chemistry with the incredible guitar work of Wes Borland, John Otto’s powerhouse drumming, snappy bass lines from Sam Waters, the pulsating beats from DJ Lethal, and of course front man Fred Durst’s smack you in the face vocals. Borland’s guitar works is truly spotlighted on tracks such as the album’s title track “Gold Cobra” and “Bring It Back”, while the trademark Limp Bizkit aggression fueled anthems are showcased with tracks such as “Get A Life” and “Shark Attack”, both of which are just begging to be played in a live setting. The album does slow down a bit with tracks such as “Loser”, but picks up again quickly before anyone could lose too much interest.

“Gold Cobra” is catchy and packs a powerhouse punch proving to everyone that Limp Bizkit can still put together a great album even if it has been several years since their heyday. If you are a fan from the early years than you will definitely love the album, and if you are a strong hater of Limp Bizkit’s style, than most likely your opinion won’t change.  All that can be said is that the band has put their all into this record, it shows, and as a fan of the band I am thrilled that they are back and ready to unleash the music of “Gold Cobra” on the world.
