Product Overview

Static-X's blunt-force-trauma melding of industrial rock, thrash metal and futuristic disco is back on the band's fifth studio album, Cannibal. From the carnivorous title track to the throat-punching grooves of "Destroyer," "Goat" and "Electric Pulse," Cannibal boasts the harshest, most stripped-down music Static-X has ever recorded.

Artist Bio
Static-XCalling Static-X the Terminator of contemporary rock music may seem like an obvious comparison: The band?s blunt-force-trauma melding of industrial rock, thrash metal and futuristic disco is nothing if not cybernetic. But when you look back at Static-X?s 13-year legacy, the comparison goes well beyond the musical: Since the 1999 release of their platinum-certified Warner Bros. debut, Wisconsin Death Trip, the Los Angeles quartet have weathered musical trends, survived lineup shifts, and even severed longtime creative partnerships to emerge as the streamlined metallic machine they are today; and with their fifth studio album, Cannibal, they sound positively indestructible.Comprising 12 of the harshest, most stripped-down tracks Static-X have ever recorded, Cannibal also finds frontman Wayne Static & Co. sounding leaner and meaner than they have in years - a change the vertical-haired guitarist, vocalist and chief songwriter attributes to the back-to-basics approach they took to recording the album. ?From the recording process to the way it turned out, this record feels old-school for us,? Static explains. ?I think it?s the most metal record we?ve ever made, and it?s arguably the heaviest record we?ve ever made. The last few records found us going in a slightly different direction; this one makes no compromises, and when people hear it, I think they?re going to go, ?Whoa, cool! Static-X is back.?Of course, Static-X never really took a break: In fact, from 2005?s Start a War onward, the quartet have grown tighter, busier and more road-ready than ever, with original lead guitarist Koichi Fukuda (who last appeared on Wisconsin Death Trip) returning to the fold after a four-year split and former touring drummer Nick Oshiro (ex-Seether) committing to the band full-time. Rounded out by original bassist Tony Campos, who pulls double-duty in the industrial/death-metal all-star project Asesino, this lineup saw a successful 2005-2006 not only on tour, where they headlined U.S. and Pacific Rim stages alongside Ill Nino and Opiate for the Masses, but also in stores. Start a War had two singles hit the Billboard Top 30 and two more land on the soundtracks to the video games Need for Speed: Most Wanted and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2006, and Cannibal?s face-ripping ?No Submission? landed, fittingly, on the Saw III soundtrack and gave fans an early taste of the album to come.
