STATIC X
START A WAR
WARNER BROTHERS

As if the news of band member Tripp Eisen’s improprieties with young girls wasn’t enough, electronic metal act Static X’s decision to name the new album START A WAR during such tumultuous times may seem a bit suspect. However, in all fairness to the crazily coiffed frontman and crew, this 13-track disc hits way harder than previous outings, as the one-two punch of “The Enemy” and “I’m The One” show just how these guys have survived through the nu-metal muck. Scaling back on the Goth-rock shtick and pouring on the pounding industrial metal grooves, this disc may reclaim some of the fans the band lost when they switched gears a few discs back, as START A WAR furthers the Rob Zombie meets Ministry format which Wayne Static and crew have recently rejoined.
