Apparently if you want creepy, Static-X is the place to go these days.
The industrial-flavored metal outfit has lined up slots on not one but two soundtracks to upcoming horror sequels. First up, the band will kick in the new track "So Real" for the soundtrack to "Scream 3."
As we reported last month, Florida chart-toppers Creed will oversee that soundtrack and will also contribute two tracks: "What If" and "Is This the End" (see "Creed To Oversee "Scream 3" Soundtrack; Gives Praise To Radio"). The album is expected to arrive in January a month before the film hits theaters.
Static-X will also land its recently recorded cover of Ministry's "Burning Inside" on the soundtrack to "The Crow: Salvation," the third film in the "Crow" series. The track also features Fear Factory frontman Burton Bell (see "Static-X Joins Fear Factory In Studio, On The Road") and should surface
when the film does next year.
"We've toured with Fear Factory a lot, and us and them are both big Ministry fans," Static-X frontman Wayne Static told MTV News recently. "During Ozzfest, we decided to record the song 'Burning Inside' and we asked Burton to do some guest vocals on it, and I think it turned out great. I hope [Ministry's] Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker like it." [RealVideo]
Actually, both "So Real" and "Burning Inside" were recorded when Static-X stopped by a Chicago studio over the fourth of July weekend while on the road with Ozzfest.
As always, the band is currently on the road, this time with Megadeth. The tour hits Dallas on Saturday, and Static-X promises to pull a few Halloween-inspired surprises out of its bag of tricks for the show. If you want to catch the band with Megadeth, here's where to look:
