    i dont like the cover mush but no submission sounds pretty gd, considering i hated most of all their previous stuff i might actually buy this. they much better live than on their records so i ll go see em if they tour

    Ehk, if it sounds like No Submission I have a feeling it will sound quite a bit like Roots by Sepultura. Another nu-metal offering from Static-X =\

    wisconsin death trip and machine were the best albums, shadow zone was ok, start a war was terrible. who knows, the lack of an otsego song might mean a fresh start, and lets face it , if they carried on dishing out the same songs with not many new ideas they're just gonna die out. im listening to the new song no submission now, sounds like slayer/older stuff which is a good thing!

    Ostego is a city near Michigan where Wayne went to college. He said so in an issue of Metal Edge in 2003. Here's the quote: Otsego is a town near where I went to college in Michigan, and it was kind of a depressing, small townthere was a guy named Dean there, and I had his fake ID.

    no submission sounds like something very different from their old stuff, so maybe not having an otsego is a sign they finally decided to change up their style and be a little less nu-metal

    I was going to post the same thing! I'm sure the album will kick ass anyways!

    I was thinking about the lack of an Otsego song, and think that perhaps they could have included it as a hidden track? Just an idea, but anyway, I love Static-X, and I know after hearing No Submission that this album will definately not disappoint me.

    This guys really need to learn to play guitar, in my opinion this sound sucks, but, that's my opinion. I am glad for them a lot of other people like this sound!

    Ooopsy, this was what I said: If its not released yet the track list could change... but probably won't. Anyway, I think the otsego song had something to do with Tony the bassist since he was spanish or mexican or something.

    I don't like the "No Submission" song all that much. Hopefully the rest of the tracks will rock.

    Guys, this is what happened to Tripp: He met a girl online, whose age he was unsure of, and was eventually caught sleeping with her in a car. He had reason to believe that she was 18 years of age. She didn't look her own age [14], and lied to him on many occasions. She basically ruined his life.

    One of the original guitarists for the Band was arrested for having engaged in child molestation acts (or something close.) Static-X booted his ass out and replace him quickly. Later, they booted out Tony too (I think that was his name) because he was a severe alcoholic and it was showing in his attitude during practices and shows to the point they forced him out. Static-X keep a very tight boat... screw up, and you're gone. I'm also very disappointed there is no Otsego song... maybe it's a sign. As for what it meant, it's something that Wayne came up with... means nothing really, but is very traditional on a Static-X album. It's abut time they went in the direction of Slayer and the bands they took their style from, but I will miss the Static-X style of easy-to-play, fun songs. Still a very original and powerful band that is good to listen to.

    Awesome, I heard some of No Submission and it seems pretty different from Static-X's usual stuff(but in a good way). The new album is gonna kick ass. --John
