Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the first solo album from the Static-X mainman. Pighammer has a disarming raw quality of heavy driving guitar riffs and lyrics that will take hold of your bowels and into the mind of Static's dark past and warped mind. This is blatant as the first single 'Assassins Of Youth', was inspired by Wayne Static's last days of drugs and partying. "I wrote this song while living in a hotel room, listening to Pink Floyd, drinking Crown and doing whippits," explains Static. "I started the song in that condition but never finished it until years later after dumping off the drugs. Now the song has a whole new meaning from when I started it." 'Assassins Of Youth' is an old-school term for drugs. The first verse is about doing drugs, the chorus is going dry and the second chorus is about getting off and no longer being slave to the drugs.

This is outstanding! It brings back the style of the first two Static X releases and add in more experience. Someone in a review moaned "no bass." What? There's bass all over the place! Idiot. I like every cut on this. Wayne ... more ... more ... more! However, sadly, he passed away in his sleep in 2014. RIP.

Wayne Static said in an interview that he wrote everything for Static-X, now he just does it all by himself. So the album is pretty much Static-X with Wayne Static on every instrument. Still some good guitar riffs and solid chugging, but more trance music involved now. I've been a fan of Static-X since Wisconsin Death Trip, so I think it's a decent album. If you haven't listened to much Static-X or don't know what to expect, try just downloading a track or two (like "Assassins of Youth") and see how it goes.

There are maybe 3 or 4 decent songs on this album, but there something uncannily annoying about almost every track.Kind of monotonous and boring, party music good for about 5 plays.Lacks meaning to begin with and lost interest fast in this one.Sad I wasted my money on the whole album when it's only worth a song or two.

I always love Wayne Static's music. I wanted to buy this for a long time. When I found out about his unfortunate passing i just compelled to buy this CD. This disc music does not disappoint. I love this.

After I heard the song Slave, I decided to get this, knowing I liked a lot of the artist's previous music. The rest of the album has a couple other decent songs, but overall, I feel Wayne could have really topped out the tracks much better. He always has a lot of potential for industrial electronic metal, but anymore most of the stuff is the same tunes over and over. Anyone can yell into a mike, but mix up the tones on the singing and vary the guitar a lot more for variety. The electronics are great and trippy, but I just feel like something is missing. The Shadow Zone album from Static-X (Yes, I realize this is only a solo album), was the greatest, with varied actual singing mixed with the yelling, and the sounds were pretty unique and heavy. If Static went back to more of that album's feel, I would likely buy a lot more. Hang in there, Wayne....

Fan of static X, so I figured I would give it a run. Well in a nutshell very happy. You can hear a little Static X but it is its own monster. If your a fan of Heavy Metal, Static X, or just old school heavy music pick this up. Sounds old school like the old days of white zombie. Hope Wayne gives this side project another run. A lot better that I was thinking it was going to be. Nothing bad about it, hope this helps.

Like all of the Static X albums ( except Wisconsin Death Trip which is listenable all the way through) there are about 2 or 3 songs that I really like and the rest I could do without. I read a review on Amazon that Wayne's solo album was a lot more like Wisconsin Death Trip than the other Static X albums so that's why I gave it a shot. Glad i bought it either way. I was sad to hear that Wayne had died. He was a talented artist and an Icon of the metal and hard rock world. There aren't enough Wayne Statics in this generation and Metal is dying I am afraid.

First album since Machine that I could easily sit all the way through. I loved Death Trip, and they kept getting further and further away from the sound of that first album, moving towards a more generic death metal sound. I don't like generic death metal or hardcore metal. Not my thing, so this album is AWESOME for me, because it has the heaviest use of synth yet.
