THIRTY-FOUR SECONDS OF NEW WAYNE STATIC MUSIC IS ENOUGH TO CONVINCE ME I DON’T NEED TO HEAR MORE
I always feel kinda bad for Wayne Static, the same way I feel kinda bad for Marilyn Manson; almost twenty years ago, these dudes decided it was a good idea to style themselves in a completely ridiculous manner, and now they’re pretty much married to that look. I guess the good news is, Static may be single-handidly contributing thousands of dollars to the egg and hair gel industries every year, so, yeah, there’s that.
ANYWAY, Static-X is apparently in some kind of state of flux due to the loss of a band member or two (I don’t know all the details and I’m not wasting brain power learning them), but I don’t know why that matters since I would imagine that Static-X fans hold Mr. Static in the same regard that Megadeth fans hold Dave Mustaine. Which is to say, as long as Wayne is there, isn’t it Static-X?
I guess metal’s answer to Kid from Kid ‘n Play didn’t feel that way, or otherwise felt he wasn’t getting enough credit in the band he formed, wrote all the music for, and named after himself (or… named before he re-named himself… but… oh, whatever), ’cause he’s releasing a solo album, Pighammer, in October. And now he’s released thirty-four seconds of a song from that album, called “Chrome Nation.” It sounds to me exactly like Static-X, although I’m sure there’s at least one disgruntled fan of that band who has now found this site via a search engine, and would like to tell me to go fuck myself. Hey, noob! Welcome to MetalSucks. Please feel free to go ape shit in the comments section — that’s what it’s there for!
Pighammer is out October 4 on Dirthouse Records.
