Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On its fifth album, Static X mines its familiar Prong-meets-Ministry sound to convincing effect over the course of twelve tracks of industrial metal darkness. Because the band's name alone makes comparisons to the likes of White Zombie, Korn, and Slipknot redundant, it's instead worth noting that Cannibal is arguably the group's leanest, most direct-sounding, and most metal album to date. And, if this album is a harbinger of the outfit's future ventures, then listeners are in for a eye-popping ride. Wayne Static and his cohorts are perhaps most effective on the stomping "Cuts You Up," the dark and discoesque "Behemoth," and the grand executioner of them all, "Destroyer." Still, the record suffers a bit for its intentions of brutality. The hit-and-run approach of Static's songwriting means that none of the tracks reach the four-minute mark and thus come off as vignettes rather than fully realized narratives. All in all, Cannibal may be the album that detractors and fans alike have been waiting for, the one that proves that Static means to take us on a longer and more interesting journey than we could have ever imagined. ––Jedd Beaudoin

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back To Basics For Static-X April 11, 2007
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
Unlike most Static-X reviewers on here, I can honestly say that I've loved every Static-X album released so far. Some have obviously been better than others, but they're all good. "Cannibal" has a more stripped down sound, the electronics are still there, but they are more subtle on these guitar-driven tracks. I must say, I kinda miss the electronics sometimes because its part of what makes Static-X unique, but they're still present enough to make the album sound like them. The album is pretty raw, offering nothing along the lines of more radio-friendly tunes like "Cold" or "The Only." The albums first single, "Destroyer" is about as mainstream as it gets. Speaking of "Destroyer", I felt this song was probably one of the weaker tracks on here. I was definitely more impressed with tunes like "Cannibal" and "Cuts You Up". There's also "Forty Ways" (which sounds like a more constantly heavy version of "Love Dump") and "Goat" (which sounds like a slowed down version of "Fix"). This album also offers some old school metal riffs on tunes like "No Submission" and "Chemical Logic", almost like a riff you'd hear on Metallica's Kill Em All album. What's also different about this album is that almost every song offers a guitar solo, which is unusual for Static-X to do. On my first listen, this album didn't strike me as anything special, but on my 2nd and 3rd listens, I found it very catchy and fun. Even though this album is heavier and faster than much of the songs from "Shadow Zone" or "Start A War", I think the band is having as much fun as ever...this is metal to shake your a** to!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid STATIC! April 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In a way, i feel a bit bad for Static-x. They kind of created this little techno/Metal/Funk thing and the style is unique! Problem is, the minute they try something even remotly different, they will be pagued with the dreaded "sell Out" tag. I say this when reading comments about the "same sound", or the "Stripped down" sound of this cd and it makes me CRAZY!
Unfortunately for them, people liked their first cd too much!

When 'Machine' came out, people thought is wasnt as 'energetic' as the first cd, because every song wasnt going crazy. "Shadow Zone" was a 'complete' sellout because they attempted to cut back on the effects a little and add a miniscule amount of melody. 'Start a War' was supposedly "not as good" as 'Wisconsin...' and sounded tired.
What the hell can this band do that is right for the people yet gives them (as musicians)a little room to try something new? Thats the problem, and i feel bad for the band for that reason! They cant, and i think they now know that.

Now onto 'Cannibal'. This cd is a little stripped down, as in not having loops or effects on every second of the disk. I find this to be a plus! It shows they are relying more on being a band instead of relying on effects to carry a song. They find and use effects that work for the particular song instead of using them to appease "Wisconsin Death Trip" fans to the point of overkill. This cd is more of a mix of 'Start a War' and 'Machine'. The heaviness is there in layers, but there is just enough melody to make it click.

Best Tracks are : Cannibal, No Submission, Destryoyer, Reptile (Weird and heavy But extremely cool) and 'Electric Pulse'. But i am sure that list will grow with more listens. There are a few Guitar solos that surprise. Adding a more 'Metal' feel to the cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to the old... and thensome April 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The fellas are back in full stride with Cannibal. Evil disco is back. Just finished listening to the album that I pre-ordered from Warner site. They werent bs'ing when they said it'll ship sometime around the release date (but i got kinda ripped since it costed me like 24 dollars or something just for an extra song. Not even a freakin cool slip-case or dvd bonuses like they had on their special edition cd's.. maaaaan). My album has the extra track "Get up and boogie" since I pre-ordered it from the Warner site. The old days of short and catchy music/lyrics are back. Not a song is "sung" like in the Start a War and Shadow Zone. They even do guitar solos now. The tech-lectric background ambient noises are top-notch and compliment the songs well also. I think this is their most "metal" attempt thus far. Well done guys, now I can wear my static-x shirt again with pride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stripped Down Static-X still lots of fun April 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I think I've read it all about this album. Too simplistic. Washed up. Shouldn't have gotten rid of the wall of sound approach. Blah, blah, blah.

The simple facts are that Static-X is a lot of fun. Are they the most talented musicians out there? No. But Wayne and co. know how to write some catchy tunes that are fun to headbang to. They have perfected what they do, and in my opinion, this is their best album since Wisconsin Death Trip. In the grand scheme of things, I think that their popularity has simmered down quite a bit from 1999-2000, but they make new music regularly, and it is always a solid effort. I don't know about all the negative reviews, because I am sincerely enjoying this album for what it is: a stripped down, hook-filled, in your face, "evil disco" opus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping disco evil since '94 April 5, 2007
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
I first got introduced to Static-X way back in '99 when Wisconsin Death Trip first popped onto the scene. I have been a fan since, and they have formed into one of my favorite bands. I don't care if a bunch of people don't consider them metal or not. I don't consider them metal anyway, I consider them alternative. Industrial mixed with techno influence topped off with the punk attitude of keeping the songs short, sweet and addictive. Quite frankly I don't give a crap if they are metal or not. My rule on music is if I like it, I listen to it. Trying to label stuff gives me a headache, listening to music nerds argue over what to label "metal" gives me a BIG headache.

I'm also not a person who wanted this to be Wisconsin Death Trip part II. I like bands that play with their sound and evolve, which is what Static-X has done while also keeping their distinctive sound. I don't want to buy the same CD over and over.

I might have agreed with the people on these reviews that the songs are not catchy, had I not listened to the CD multiple times. I knew before I listened to the CD that they were going for a stripped down, raw sound, but when I first listened to it I thought it was kind of forgettable. Over the past few days I've been able to listen to the CD about 10+ times (I'm an art student with a lot of time to listen to music) which is the only reason I feel I can give a fair opinion so soon since buying it. I can say now that I completely disagree with people saying that none of the songs are memorable. In fact after a few listens this CD really hooked itself into my brain and took over.

So I'm just going to break down the songs:

1. Cannibal - Love the beginning of the song, so odd and a nice wake up. Nice intro track to get you into the feel of the album.
