Product Description

Static-X's platinum debut, Wisconsin Death Trip, and follow-up Machine, firmly cemented the band's status as hard-rock heroes. Now the group's third album, Shadow Zone, reveals the next step in the evolution of Static-X-+a teaming with producer Josh Abraham (Staind, Limp Bizkit, Unwritten Law). Says frontman/guitarist/founder Wayne Static, "I hate it when bands keep making the same record over and over, so we're pushing ourselves to try new things and experiment." Leaner, more refined, but just as bone-crunching as ever, Static-X catapults metal into the Shadow Zone.

After one listening to the album I can honestly say, I don't enjoy it as much as their debut album. It does not stand out. It is just too similiar in sound to other nu-metal bands these days. Still, compared to other popular bands, I'd give it 3.5, maybe 4 at most.
Relative simplicity, use of electronics and originality was what made WDT so unique (and good, IMHO).
I like all sorts of metal bands, including some of the nu-metal, but there is a group of radio/MTV-friendly bands (particularly American, sorry) that just copy one another, try to be heavy, but they have no memorable songs and little energy (as heavy as they might be!) And no, I don't think that 80's metal ruled, in fact I don't like it at all, with maybe few exceptions.
If you are just unsatisfied with crappy "metal" radio/MTV music you hear these days, I suggest to look at some European (Scandinavian in particular) bands or some not-so-well-known american metal bands. You will be surprised how many gems you might find (I did)

Breaking down barriers within themselves, Static-X have pushed their talents to new levels with the wide varience of playing styles they have brought forth. From straight out beat your head in with a bat industrial at it's fullest rage (Destroy All, Monster) to a new serious/softer side of Static-X with songs like So and Invincible. Over the years STatic-X has grown, matured and changed members over every album, but the core still remains. Static-X is their own type of music and anyone trying to copy them would be hard pressed to do so. Their sound quality also carries over extremely good during their live sets. Seeing them live twice now and both times they put on two shows that gave me permanent memories. They love their fans and they love what they do, which is the two most important things for an artist to do. When asked what do they think about selling out, Wayne can only casually reply by saying, yeah selling out every one of our shows feels good. And it must as they are already set to release a B-sides/rarities album this fall. (Other bands to check out: gODHEAD, Deadsy, Devildriver, Deftones, Powerman 5000, Fear Factory, Haitian hate gods [...] )

It does take some getting used to, but it IS worth it. I think it took even longer time for me to get used to because, before it was released, I heard it was going to be "more industrial and melodic." After listening to the first six tracks, and particularly "Destroy All", I can safely say they were definitly not more melodic.
It's kind of hard to describe it, but there's a new sound running through this album (not only the melodic tracks, but the heavy ones, too). The sound is new because it is a far departure from 'Wisconsin Death Trip' and 'Machine.'I'd say Static-X's new sound is half Fear Factory and Disturbed influenced, and half their own sound. Neither "Destroy All" or the melodic moments are good representations of this C.D. If I were to steer someone towards the new sound, I'd recommend hearing "Otsegolectric".
The aforementioned 'new sound' puts a harder edge on the songs. It's full of roaring and crushing guitar and bass riffs that are layered on top of eachother resulting in a wall of awesome guitar noise. But it is not just loud cacophony. The music often turns into a surging groove, where the guitars gain energy and speed and build off eachother.
With this harder edge on the songs, it's hard to discern the bass from the guitars, but it is there. It anchors the songs and backs the guitars with an almost grumbling/growling background undertone.
With all this metal music, one might guess Wayne's voice is a typical metal howl (maybe Sully Erna's or Cory Taylor's). But the vocals are better than either of theirs. The signature yell is still ample, but Wayne actually sings on many of these tracks ("The Only," "So," etc.

I regret for writing a negative review before. I definitely take it back, and I apologize to whoever found it 'helpful'. I've liked it for some time now, and have only just gotten around to writing another review for it. That negative review was growing heavy on my conscience, so I just had to tell people the truth about this album.
