Gem of the Week: Static-X “Black and White”

5 Nov


My gem this week is “Black & White” by Static-X, in tribute to the metal bands former frontman Wayne Static who passed away on Saturday November 1st.

I first read the sad news on, stating that he was only 48 and how he was getting ready  to go on tour with Powerman 5000 and Drowning Pool. After Static-X disbanded in 2010, Static had a successful solo career going releasing his album Pighammer in 2011

Static-X is one of those bands I briefly got into back in 2001 when they released the album Machine and were becoming more popular. I liked their brand of goth/metal sound, not to mention Static’s notable wild spiky black hair. actually posted the press release stating that Static passed quietly in his sleep and cause of death is not listed but it specified that it was not drug related.

I’m glad I got to see Static-X perform live during The Family Values Tour in 2001. I remember they rocked through a quick set but I did get to hear them do my favorite gem “Black & White,” which I still think is a great metal song.

Below is a link for “Black and White” shared from MetalAndRockHUN’s You Tube Channel.
