It may have been a decade since the release of their debut album ‘Wisconsin Death Trip’ but Static-X, the self-proclaimed purveyors of “evil disco”, show no sign of slowing down.

It may have been a decade since the release of their debut album ‘Wisconsin Death Trip’ but Static-X, the self-proclaimed purveyors of “evil disco”, show no sign of slowing down. ‘Cult Of Static’, the sixth studio release, is brimming with the band‘s trademark ear-splitting synth-metal. Departing from the doom-laden sounds of 07s ‘Cannibal’, Static-X employ more extreme metal grooves in songs like ‘Lunatic’ (featuring Dave Mustaine’s widdly guitar talents), but it’s the return of Wayne Static’s gutsier, volatile vocals on tracks like ‘Z28’ that’s sure to win plaudits from fans. The experimental melange of malevolently scathing songwriting and industrial metal is a sonic explosion and after 10 years it’s safe to say the band have found their caustic voice.
