Butch Vig, of course, was the producer at the helm of 'Nevermind,' while Novoselic, for those who forget, was Nirvana's bassist.
Speaking with Zane Lowe on his BBC Radio 1 show, Grohl said, "The last month and a half we've been recording in my garage, totally old-school analogue with Butch. The band is going bananas.
"I think that I said in an interview that this is going to be our heaviest record yet. Butch read that when he was over in England and said, 'OK dude, we've got to make your heaviest record yet.'"
He continued, "There is not even an acoustic guitar in the house. Each song that we're doing is full-on."
As previously reported by Spinner, it's the first time that Grohl has worked with Vig since Nirvana recorded 'Nevermind' 20 years ago.
Novoselic has been playing bass for some of the tracks, while Husker Du guitarist Bob Mould is also set to appear, singing with Grohl on 'Dear Rosemary.'
The band are halfway through recording the new album, with around seven songs completed so far out of the 14 being worked on, but as of yet there is no release date.
Not content with all that, Grohl added, "We're making a movie about this whole experience too. [In] 2011 you're not going to be able to get us out of your hair."
