Artist: "Static X"
Album: "Wisconsin Death Trip"
Label: Warner Bros. Records
Reviewer: Dr. Boogie
Review: You know that metal band with the lead singer who has the really weird haircut? Thatís Static X. After I heard this album, I never looked at Wisconsin the same way again.
Wisconsin Death Trip had a good variety as far as metal goes. At the same time, though, the overall feel of each song is about 50/50 metal and techno. Sometimes it works, but other times, the repetitive nature of techno music really doesnít lend itself to metal, or at least not for Static X.
Even so, Iíd have to say that this is probably their best album. By the time Machine came out in 2001, the music just didnít seem to recapture that same feel that it had in WDT, perhaps due to the brief departure of their original guitarist. If nothing else, though, their first album warrants a listen or two.
(Scored on a 0.5 - 5 pickles rating: 0.5 being the worst and 5 being the best)
