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)
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

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.
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.Read more ›

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.Published on June 10 2004 by Adam Rieger
