Episode 162: Addictions by Substance D

This week on the Roach Koach Podcast we talk about a listener recommendation, Addictions by Substance D. Before digging into that one, Lorin and Jenny get real about their experience at the Static-X/Devildriver show. Emotions are expressed! Cars are parallel parked! (Also lovely Rose Marie provides some background screams). Then it’s time for Substance D. Does this album contain the nu-metal “Welcome To the Jungle”? Is Jenny the right choice to play Batman? Are these lyrics too intense for a casual listener? Most important, does Substance D deserve entry in the Nu-Metal Canon? Listen and find out.

Episode 142: Shadow Zone by Static-X

This week on Roach Koach it’s round 3 with the boys in Static-X and their album, Shadow Zone. We discuss how the Queen of the Damned soundtrack shaped this album’s sound, whether Jenny hates singing, songs about masturbation, how anyone can get Alice In Chains’d, and whether Shadow Zone should be inducted into the Nu-Metal Canon. Also, a preview of next month’s Producer Spotlight on Ross Robinson, Earth Crisis feedback in Who’s Tweeting, and a quick shout out to the other podcasts doing the damn thing in Who’s Podcasting.

Episode 21: Wisconsin Death Trip by Static X

The pit is activated in record time on this episode of Roach Koach. Jenny, Lorin and Matt take a deep dive into Static-X's debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip. Topics discussed: Did this band miss their shot at the big time? Is it possible to decode the Robert Christgau rating system? Can an album be too good? What is "Love Dump" about? What is it mean to have a "reverse Staind problem"? Also another edition of Who's Tweeting?, a brief detour with Ministry and nursery rhymes, and of course, debating whether Static-X deserve a spot in the Nu-Metal Canon.
