Big Dumb Face is an avant-garde metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, which was formed by Wes Borland in 1998. Big Dumb Face's primary musical style was humorous, but was also very diverse, with Ween and Mr. Bungle being cited as key influences.
Big Dumb Face originated from Borland wanting to make use of guitar riffs he had written for Limp Bizkit that the rest of the band did not want to use, as well as from his fascination with the band Ween. Borland worked on the CD in late 2000, released it in early 2001, and toured for BDF in early to mid 2001.
The tracks on the album range from death/thrash metal (Burgalveist, Blood Red Head on Fire) to new wave (It's Right in Here, Kali Is the Sweethog), to speed country (Duke Lion). The album has many musical ideas loaded into each song, with keyboards, drum machines, live drums, guitars run through synths, bass guitar and trip hop beats thrown into songs.
The project was set to the side once Wes quit Limp Bizkit in 2001 and he started up progressive metal outfit Eat the Day, but once Eat the Day fell through Borland briefly rejoined Limp Bizkit in late 2004. This led to a new BDF track in a death metal / thrash style titled "Darkness Becomes", but this was to be the final track to be released before the project was abandoned after Borland once again left Limp Bizkit in 2005.
