Smooth Rough Industrial

"Somehow, someway, this never comes across as sloppy like most heavy bands, it's smooth but without losing that crunch. Whatever you wanna call it, industrial, evil disco or heavy-trance-core, it is amazing. This band is like a dentist's wet dream, it'll shake those teeth right out of your mouth in the first few songs. White Zombie, just heavier might be the closest way to describe them for those that aren't in the know. Wayne Static's lyrics are difficult to understand, thankfully they give you the lyrics in the CD jacket, his voice sounds like a drill sergeant on a bad acid trip, very nice. He even played with Billy Corgan in a goth band during the 80's! I'm dying to hear something from those two, especially goth music, their band was called Deep Blue Dream or something like that. Anyways, Static-X move along together like they are one unit that functions as a music machine, even the guitars stop, pick up, then roll along with everything else. The two singles "Push It" and "I'm With Stupid" are great songs. Listen to the lyrics through the CD, pretty funny stuff. My favorite song on here is "I Am". The opening guitar riff is amazing, it's very catchy but not in a pop tune sort of way. When I first listened to the chorus I thought I heard it somewhere else before. I listened to Tool's "Prison Sex" and thought they were the same, guess I was wrong. The song is really great and well produced, which is another thing, this is one slick produced album. Nothing sounds out of place here, it all works nicely. The first five songs are easily the best but thankfully they didn't put in filler for the rest. "Sweat Of The Bud" and the title track are great as well. The last track is a song a lot of fans don't seem to like, "December". I think it's brilliant, it's easy going and beautiful, I love it. Things don't have to be crunch, crunch all the time, but if that's your thing I can undestand why you don't like it. In the end though, this is a great album by a band that has a bright future. I have to say this, I love Wayne's hair."
Heaviest dance album ever?

"On "Wisconsin Death Trip," Static-X bend genres like wet noodles. This album is a sizzling amalgamation of industrial and nu-metal, with some big, funky, danceable grooves thrown in. I would find it very hard to believe someone who said the massive, stuttering groove of "Push It" didn't instantly get embedded in their head. Fortunately, the album as a whole offers an array of similiar treats. One might think it's hard to make heavy music catchy, but Static-X pull it off beatifully. The thick industrial riffs are some of the catchiest around, and Wayne Static's deep growl blends perfectly with the guitar work. Unlike many nu-metal bands, Static-X don't take themselve too seriously and adopt a threatening pose; rather, these songs are imbued with a deep sense of fun. In addition to "Push It," immediate highlights include the grinding, deeply rhythmic "Stem" and the eerily ambient "The Trance is the Motion." Every song is at least good though, with some nice solid riffs and catchy beats. In other words, if you haven't already picked this one up, do so now."

"this cd is good for any fans of ministry, white zombie or powerman 5000. it best points are at the beginning. starting with the hit: push it.(appears on the idle hands soundtrack) then the soon-to-be-a-radio-release im with stupid. then you have the static-x first song released onto cd ever (bride of chucky soundtrack), bled for days. (also on universal soldier 2 soundtrack).then ity is tuned down a bit for love dump which has some of the most interesting lyrics. then on track 5, my personal fav, i am. this song has it all. the other two standout tracks are 6 & 10. buy this cd, you wont be disappointed."
