Rock/metal heavyweights Static-X and Sevendust recently concluded the second leg of their acclaimed ‘Killer Machine’ tour, supported by Dope and Lines of Loyalty. The first leg of the tour took place in October, and due to popular demand, additional dates were added in February. A third leg of dates has been set for April through May of this year.

The tour rolled through Huntington, NY, on February 14th for a show at The Paramount. Static-X closed out the evening with a 16-song set filled with tons of industrial metal hits from the band’s first studio offering, ‘Wisconsin Death Trip,’ with the band dishing out memorable jams like “Love Dump,” “Fix,” “Bled for Days,” “I’m With Stupid,” and “Push It.”

Static-X’s post-2018 lineup features original members Tony Campos (bass, backing vocals), Koichi Fukuda (lead guitars, keyboards), and Ken Jay (drums), along with lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Xer0, also known as Edsel Dope of Dope. Edsel contributed to the band’s latest studio albums, ‘Project Regeneration’ volumes 1 and 2, and the band made sure to highlight a few tracks from those releases, including “Hollow,” “Terminator Oscillator,” and “Z0mbie.”

Static-X’s 2001 sophomore album, ‘Machine,’ also received some love in Long Island, with the band electrifying the masses with songs like “Black and White,” “This Is Not,” “Get to the Gone,” and “Cold.”

Sevendust came out swinging with an energetic set of their own, delivering 13 tracks during their commanding performance on stage. With their new album ‘Truth Killer’ in the forefront of fans’ minds, the band kicked off their set with the album’s uplifting leadoff track “I Might Let the Devil Win.” They would continue with the LP’s breakdown-heavy title track and added “Everything,” much to the delight of the crowd.

Sevendust vocalist Lajon Witherspoon exudes affection on stage as he passionately sings striking lyrics to the band’s top songs like “Denial,” “Black,” “Enemy,” and “Bitch,” igniting mosh pits and fan frenzy. The band’s heavy-hitting classic ‘Face to Face’ closed out their set, leaving fans energized as they belted out the song’s punchy lyrics: “Swing! Just take your swing! F**k you!”

With Edsel pulling double duty and limited time on their hands, Dope wasted no time in warming up the incoming crowd with a mix of songs from their discography. They performed “Blood Money,” “Bitch,” “Debonaire,” “Die, Boom, Bang, Burn,” and closed out their set with their popular cover of Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record).”

As previously mentioned, the ‘Killer Machine’ tour continues this spring with 15 more North American performances, including shows scheduled in San Francisco, Vancouver, Omaha, Minneapolis, and more. Get more info here.
