Vs. Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Static-X edition
In memory of Wayne Static, the trio of surviving original members of Static-X, Bassist Tony Campos (ex-Soulfly, ex-FearFactory), Guitarist Koichi Fukuda and Drummer Ken Jay (ex-Godhead) are controversially bringing the band back to play a 20th anniversary tour of their debut “Wisconsin Death Trip” and a new album of older unreleased material called “Project Regeneration” freshly produced with new instrumentation. The tour will be hitting the UK this September and see a touring vocalist rumoured to be Dope frontman Edsel Dope fronting the band and playing guitars. In the video, the frontman is masked an looks like a raised from the dead version of Wayne Static, something Kerrang! Magazine took offence to and you can read more about here. So we decided to put a pair of covers of the bands debut single “Push It” head to head for this weeks Vs. Tuesday!
First up we have Kartikeya, who hail from Moscow in Russia and are named after the Hindu God of War. Inspired by Indian culture, they started out in 2004 and their latest offering “Samudra” which appeared in 2017 features a guest appearance from Karl Sanders of Nile. Going up against them are the soon the be returning Minneapolis Metallers Buried By Hope. This 2007 cut was produced by Bret Yager back in 2007 and features footage from their 2006 Midwest shows. Who Wins? You decide!
