Where have the real Static-X gone?
on 30 May 2007
What happened to the Static-X we see on Machine? Where are they gone? They appear to have been replaced by a mediocre band fronted by Jonathan Davis.
Wayne has made his vocals sound so much like Jonathan Davis on some these tracks that it is impossible to tell the differance between the two. Granted, on tracks like "Destroy All" and "Monster" Static-X still have their fury and anger, and have Wayne singing, but for the rest of this pathetic offering, it all seems a bit too tame to be the band that we all know and love.
The DVD isn't much better either, with some "Live" performances (that is, footage of Static-X running around with the studio version of the song played over it) and a fairly crap intereiw.
Overall, sometimes this band is Static-X, but for the majority of the album, it's this Mediocre band that appear to have taken over.
