Static-X

Led by one of the most visually striking vocalists in nu-metal in Wayne Static (he with the outrageous stand-up hair), Static-X unleashed their debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip, in 1999, shortly after signing to Warner Brothers Records. Their intense, industrial-tinged nu-metal style, mixing a bit of White Zombie and Fear Factory with a nu-metal base, won them a large fan base, and they maintained a loyal following despited the decline of nu-metal in the intervening years. The band began to unravel after the 2009 release of Cult Of Static, with core members Tony Campos and Koichi Fukuda leaving the band altogether. Wayne took up a solo career, and then resurrected the Static-X name by touring with his solo project members (apparently Campos granted the use of the name through some legal arrangement). That lasted until June 2013, when Wayne disbanded the group once again, and a year later he passed away.

Recent album: Project: Regeneration Vol. 1, released on July 10, 2020.
