Product Description

Product Description

On its explosive debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip, Static-X takes the energizing effect of techno, the aggressiveness of a guitar-laden frenzy and the moody overtones of the goth/industrial underground and molds them into what the band calls rhythmic trancecore. Melodic, dark, heavy, intense and unrelenting, Static-X is a rave-like assault on the senses sharpened by a new-metal edge. Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (6/01)

Amazon.ca

A genre-bending sonic onslaught, this disc is not for the faint-hearted. Static-X skillfully blend angry staccato guitar, dark metallic noise, and mutating synthesizer washes to construct an ominous (though occasionally humorous) wall of sound. Lead vocalist Wayne Static's high-energy delivery alternates from whisper to roar on tracks such as "Bled for Days" and "I Am," and he often uses his voice as a potent rhythmic sound effect, as on "Push It" and "Sweat of the Bud." Tony Campos's distorted bass riffs and drummer Ken Jay's confident beats add a human feel to the mechanical rhythms, adroitly creating the tight grooves of "Otsegolation" and "Fix," as well as the rigid swing in "Stem." Wayne Static and Koichi Fukuda skillfully combine guitars and keyboards on "The Trance Is the Motion" to produce crashing waves of sound, while their programming on "December" results in a more subdued piece to close the album. --Mark McCleerey

5.0 out of 5 stars what do you want? June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
what can i say? its underground industrial. perfect blend of metal with...well the literal sounds of metal. electronics make this band one of the most beautiful things i've seen, and i've seen many. sometimes, it amazes me when i read the lyrics that the songs are about love? ok, lets get to it. this album does not fall short. for anyone who likes anything, static-x brings you a whole refreshing flavor to the metal world. listening to the album, you can almost picture them playing in some nasty, filthy, underground basement garage somewhere in a post apocalypse arena. that's how grimey they sound. wayne static's vocals are heavy and intensely in your face. every song, is like someone bitch smacking you...but in the ears. he doesn't shut up, which is a good thing. it has that feel of an annoying girl in the back of the class, but with the energy that you want to hear. he nags his way into you, not to say his voice sucks, it just feels that way. it's amazing, i don't know how he does it. let the guitars and the samples hit you, because they will. the sound is amazingly dirty but so clean when put together. favorite song? "love dump" and "i'm with stupid" on "i'm with stupid" when he hits the chorus, OMIGOD, his voice just holds on to you like a kamakazi waiting to explode. 5 out of 5 is just being modest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Static Xplained!!! May 5 2004
By Six
Format:Audio CD
This has got to be the KING of all Techno Metal Albums... Just listen to "love dump" and you'll know it!!! I stole this cd from I girl I dated for a few weeks, and she's not getting it back...In fact I dated her just so I could steal this cd.From start to finish your teeth will be clamped down harder than a pair of vise grips and your fists will be clenched so hard that you'll feel as if your trying to turn a lump of coal into a diamond right there in the palm of your hand. Super tight,chunk-chunk guitar riffs with awesome techno programming makes for one KILLER album!!! Think of "Closer" by NIN,sped-up, doubling the downbeat with chunky guitar riff's all spread out nice and even, then layered multiple times to create this awesome ocean of beautiful, rythmic metal bliss that engulfs you and holds you tight, and when it lets you go, your fired up enough to kick Mike Tysons ass from here to mars... He'd probably beat you badly, bite your ear off and call you Wobin... but at least you would FEEL like you could kick his ass...

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT!!! Dec 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is album is awesome, you haven't lived until you bought this CD. This is the first album of what seems to be a band on-going continous change in their music. Machine got more advanced in a more harder sounding type album, and then Shadow Zone which is my personal favorite album of 2003. Static-X is one of the greatest bands on the planet.
When I first saw Push It on music television stations, I was amazed. I thought these guys were freaks and were headed no where, I loved the song but I had a feeling no one else would. I bought the album and listened to all the tracks up to 9. I don't know why either. After about 6 months of having it I was talking to some dude and he said his favorite was Track 10 "Winconsin Death Trip". I never liked the songs that CD's were named after, but after listening to "WDT" I found one of the greatest songs ever made.
This entire CD is great, although I like Shadow Zone better, you need to buy this one, its the original sound of Static-X.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fierce Industrial Juggernaut Dec 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Yes, this is band is straight-out numetal, but far from typical. With their debut album (and less so with each subsequent album, MACHINE and SHADOW ZONE), Static-X infuses heavy amounts of electronica into their relatively simple songs. Now that's not the first time this has been done (Fear Factory, among many, many other industrial bands), but it's the WAY that Static-X does it that makes things interesting.
Static-X's sound, besides the electronica, is based off of very basic riffs and song crafts. Almost every song consists of heavy riffs, pulsing electronic beats and textures, and somewhat robotic drumming. I'm sure Wayne Static and Koichi Fukuda can do far more than just riff (and on the future albums, Wayne sure shows some of that), but if there were guitar solos on this album it might not sound good. Ken Jay is a good drummer, but if he were to play like, say, Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater) on this, the resulting sound might be somehow off. Finally, Tony Campos is okay as a bassist. For some reason he used to be one of my bass idols, but now I'm not really sure why...
All the songs are relatively short, and again are very basic. Wayne Static's voice is a raspy, robotic growl, and his lyrics are (to quote fellow Amazon reviewer and friend the_wickerman) often as intelligible as some death metal bands', but that is not the point here. The overall robotic sound of this fierce industrial juggernaut is what Static-X sought to achieve, and it works. I know, the band is so simple and they are absolutely numetal, but if you think about it, Tool is a simple band (minus Danny Carey, an insane drummer), and their overall sound is where their talent lays. All the tracks are good and are quite different from each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good!
I liked pretty much every song, there are only two slow songs and they are pretty good themselves. This is a must buy for any major Static-x fan.
