System Of A Down thrash meets Rob Zombie Techno Metal! I play this on my way to work every morning and call it the Wake Up With Wayne Show. No one can scream out lyrics better than Wayne Static. If you want songs that can brutally pound out a beat and love a loud, gravelly, screaming lead with actual vocal talent, Static-X is for you.
'Cold' is as mellow as it gets on this CD for a vocal song, other than the machine-like 'A Dios Alma Perdida'. From the danceable, fast and driving 'Machine' and 'Structural Defect' (neither of which I can listen to sitting still, I have to get up and move to it!), to the thrashing, screaming sounds of 'This Is Not', 'In A Bag', and 'Get To The Gone' to the techno-metal sound of 'Permanence' and 'Otsego Undead', this is one CD that will never get boring or let you down when you want to be up. An absolute must have for aficionados of metal, thrash, techno, or all three.
As a footnote, check out the Queen of the Damned Soundtrack to hear Wayne Static sing 'Not Meant For Me' which displays his mellower vocals and also the 2nd best scream ever done in Rock n Roll. (1st scream still belongs to The Who-Won't Get Fooled Again)
