Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat addition to a great album July 25 2013
By Alex
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love Shadow Zone. It was my introduction to Static-X in around 2005 when I first played Need for Speed Underground and heard the awesomeness of "The Only". The Bonus DVD included in this bundle, having a title of its own and not just a CD+DVD deluxe edition, filled me with hope that this would be a feature-length documentary. While 35-ish minutes is a decent length for a deluxe edition disc, there were a few songs played live spliced into it, as opposed to being side features. So all in all, by all means good, but I was expected a little more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Static-X returns to metal roots July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Watching Pantera every night on Ozzfest 2000, frontman Wayne Static had a revelation: If heavy is good, heavier must be better. So he turbocharged Static-X's second disc, "Machine." (And, although a good listen), heavier was not better. Heavier was atonal, so they hit the breaks for their follow up release "Shadow Zone", an album that is contagious (catchy & memorable) as it is hard caustic (corrosive and sharp). The industrial-metal rythms are still rigid and brutal, but they adhere to more spacious textures and contemptuous melodic vocals.
Examples:
"Control It" combines a primal riff and a catchy refrain.
"Shadow Zone" contrasts a disco high hat with a bobbing beat, barbed guitars and staccato vocals.
With album number three, Static-X are back in the Zone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whoa... July 15 2004
By ribcage
Format:Audio CD
This CD is just terrible. It's really boring, and the vocals are painful to listen to. I would pay a hefty sum to know that I would never have to hear that hideous scream(I call it that for lack of a better word...most of the "screams" are just inane barking) of "Shadow Zone!" on the chorus of that song.
I used to like Nu-metal, but I'm glad I'm getting over that, otherwise this release would really have pained me because I really like WDT and Machine. I just mark it off as another nu-metal band turning into watered-down worthlessness.
And that's what this CD is. Just a (VERY) watered-down mix of their previous releases.

3.0 out of 5 stars After one listening July 14 2004
By Artur
Format:Audio CD
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars A further step in the Static-X revolution July 13 2004
By L. Hunt
Format:Audio CD
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 [...] )

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music To Drive Fast To June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I stood in line outside of a Zia Records for a minight release of this cd, because the band was there sighning autographs. Now I know that has nothing to do with the cd itself, but they're cool guys and it was cool to meet them. So I just felt like mentioning it.
Now as far as the cd itself is concerned, I love it. I'm not sure what everyone's problem is with Wayne's singing though. I personaly like it. Granted I don't doubt that you could find a better singer somewhere, but by who's standards?
If all you have heard off this cd is what you have heard on the radio, (especialy if all you have heard is "So") then it only gets better. Much better.
Also I know that if you're a die hard fan of Static-X that you already know this. But for anyone else who may not know, there is a Static-X song on the Queen Of The Damned motion picture soundtrack called "Cold" that you should definitly check out.
