Static-X at The Fillmore tonight (8/2/2012)

Posted By on Thu, Aug 2, 2012 at 8:39 AM

STATIC-X Long-running industrial headbangers Static-X, led by growling frontman Wayne Static, spews out plenty of chainsaw guitars and pounding percussion, which ought to keep the fists pumping. This is decent stuff if you dig a combination of pissed-off nu metal and industrial sound effects, with bits of ambient moodiness sprinkled into the mix. There are moments of brilliance, with tracks like “Trance is the Motion,” but dry repetition and guttural thrash are the lingua franca here. Static had been focused on his solo work since 2009, but he decided to return to the road under the Static-X monicker earlier this year. He’s the only original member on the current tour, which highlights material from the L.A. band’s first two albums. Also on the bill: Davey Suicide and 9Electric. $22. 6:30 p.m. The Fillmore.
