Wes Borland never quite fit in with Limp Bizkit, and Black Light Burns demonstrates exactly why. Where Bizkit would often pretend to be punk rock, flirt with heavy metal, wade in the waters of indie-rock sensibility, and rev their engines with an industrial overtone here or there (mostly due to Borland's influence), the guitarist's latest outfit dives headlong into each. Not in an effort to break stuff, but to make stuff--stuff that spits in the face of the hip that hopped throughout his prior outfit, and stuff that shares the sinister slant of his Big Dumb Face, but distorted around a diabolical core of infectious songs. Industrial alt-rock supergroup Black Light Burns, the new band led by former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, released its debut album today (6/5) and will support it with a US tour.
