Live Review – Static-X
Tuesday, July10, 2007
Richards on Richards,
I woke up this morning with a collar bomb around my neck and rightfully so.
The detonation device? Static-X. They exploded on to the stage at Richards for the first date of the second part of their tour to support their outstanding new release; Cannibal (Warner).
Right off the bat, “The Wayner” &
Yes. Static-X stormed the gates and all hell broke loose. Pulling tracks from four albums, the somewhat short set was the warm-up to their official Ozzfest inclusion, starting today. The extremely catchy “Behemoth” No Submission”(from the Saw III soundtrack”) and latest single/video “Destroyer” were played album-version perfect. Almost too perfect (hmmm…) In a lascivious nutshell; nobody can touch Static-X without getting a shock(pun intended).
Tight, slick and as sharp as the towering Kid N’ Play hairstack of Wayne himself, the boys had a no holds barred approach and the crowd went insane. Nice too see an abundance of cross-over cannibals arriving at a steady pace.
Goths, metalheads, gangstas, and hoodrats. Fashion took its place but the Mid-West assassins showed no mercy and in the end through the filth and the fury ….X certainly marked the spot.
Honourable mention to opening act Cyanotic for a great set, highlighting even more of the extremely(hidden) talent here in
