Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A genre-bending sonic onslaught, this disc is not for the faint-hearted. Static-X skillfully blend angry staccato guitar, dark metallic noise, and mutating synthesizer washes to construct an ominous (though occasionally humorous) wall of sound. Lead vocalist Wayne Static's high-energy delivery alternates from whisper to roar on tracks such as "Bled for Days" and "I Am," and he often uses his voice as a potent rhythmic sound effect, as on "Push It" and "Sweat of the Bud." Tony Campos's distorted bass riffs and drummer Ken Jay's confident beats add a human feel to the mechanical rhythms, adroitly creating the tight grooves of "Otsegolation" and "Fix," as well as the rigid swing in "Stem." Wayne Static and Koichi Fukuda skillfully combine guitars and keyboards on "The Trance Is the Motion" to produce crashing waves of sound, while their programming on "December" results in a more subdued piece to close the album. --Mark McCleerey

Product Description

On its explosive debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip, Static-X takes the energizing effect of techno, the aggressiveness of a guitar-laden frenzy and the moody overtones of the goth/industrial underground and molds them into what the band calls rhythmic trancecore. Melodic, dark, heavy, intense and unrelenting, Static-X is a rave-like assault on the senses sharpened by a new-metal edge. Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (6/01)

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Rough Industrial April 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Somehow, someway, this never comes across as sloppy like most heavy bands, it's smooth but without losing that crunch. Whatever you wanna call it, industrial, evil disco or heavy-trance-core, it is amazing. This band is like a dentist's wet dream, it'll shake those teeth right out of your mouth in the first few songs. White Zombie, just heavier might be the closest way to describe them for those that aren't in the know. Wayne Static's lyrics are difficult to understand, thankfully they give you the lyrics in the CD jacket, his voice sounds like a drill sergeant on a bad acid trip, very nice. He even played with Billy Corgan in a goth band during the 80's! I'm dying to hear something from those two, especially goth music, their band was called Deep Blue Dream or something like that. Anyways, Static-X move along together like they are one unit that functions as a music machine, even the guitars stop, pick up, then roll along with everything else. The two singles "Push It" and "I'm With Stupid" are great songs. Listen to the lyrics through the CD, pretty funny stuff. My favorite song on here is "I Am". The opening guitar riff is amazing, it's very catchy but not in a pop tune sort of way. When I first listened to the chorus I thought I heard it somewhere else before. I listened to Tool's "Prison Sex" and thought they were the same, guess I was wrong. The song is really great and well produced, which is another thing, this is one slick produced album. Nothing sounds out of place here, it all works nicely. The first five songs are easily the best but thankfully they didn't put in filler for the rest. "Sweat Of The Bud" and the title track are great as well. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaviest dance album ever? June 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
On "Wisconsin Death Trip," Static-X bend genres like wet noodles. This album is a sizzling amalgamation of industrial and nu-metal, with some big, funky, danceable grooves thrown in. I would find it very hard to believe someone who said the massive, stuttering groove of "Push It" didn't instantly get embedded in their head. Fortunately, the album as a whole offers an array of similiar treats. One might think it's hard to make heavy music catchy, but Static-X pull it off beatifully. The thick industrial riffs are some of the catchiest around, and Wayne Static's deep growl blends perfectly with the guitar work. Unlike many nu-metal bands, Static-X don't take themselve too seriously and adopt a threatening pose; rather, these songs are imbued with a deep sense of fun. In addition to "Push It," immediate highlights include the grinding, deeply rhythmic "Stem" and the eerily ambient "The Trance is the Motion." Every song is at least good though, with some nice solid riffs and catchy beats. In other words, if you haven't already picked this one up, do so now.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Cd is one of the best to come out in a long time! November 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because I heard the song Push It on MTV and Bled for Days off the Bride of Chucky soundtrack and I ran out and bought this CD. I just had to listen to the entire thing. If you like Push it you will like all of the tracks on this CD expecially the title track Wiconsin Death Trip. I highly recomend this CD!

The rifs are intense, the make my blood boil out my eyes. When I hear the vocals come in I lose complete control I feel as if I could take on anything. The first time I heard this CD I was like "DAMN!". recomended to anyone that just wants some sick *** rough **** to escape from reality for a bit. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

5.0 out of 5 stars No One Should Not Like This Album May 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is Static-X's debut. It is from 1999.

On eBay one day, I saw a deal I could not refuse. The deal had Wisconsin Death Trip and the other 2 albums by Static-X (not Beneath, Between, Beyond) for a measly 6 bucks. I bought it. This was their first CD, so I listened to it first. IT'S AWESOME!

With Wayne Static's booming vocals and the rest of the band's guitar and drums, it's hard to not find something to like on WDT. I'll go through, one by one, each track on this disc. I'll rate them from a scale of 1 to 10.

1= it's a disgrace to the world

10= AWESOME!

1. Push It- The CD starts off fast, quick and great with "Push It". Although some people say this is their favorite, it's not for me. It ALMOST is. The reason I like this is it's not overplayed (or even played) on the radio, unlike some songs. Great lyrics and the guitars are, also. Wayne does a great death metal voice on this one. Nothing not to like on this one.

Rating: 11/10 Time- 2:35

2. I'm With Stupid- Woah. While this is just as fast and awesome as the track before this, I'd have to say "Push It" is better. This is obviously the weirdest song on the disc and the guy/girl singing with Static talks weird and makes no sense. This song is different than everything in the world, but that doesn't make it bad.

Rating: 10/10 Time- 3:25

3. Bled For Days- Another fast song. Although not as good as "Push It" or "I'm With Stupid", it's still a great song. The lyrics aren't quite as good as in any of the tracks, but the chorus still has good lyrics. The chorus saves this song from being a flop.

Rating: 9/10 Time- 3:46

4. Love Dump- Although it's a slower song than anything before it on this album, this is good.
