I'm not going to say that Static-X is the greatest and most inventive band that's going right now but they are miles ahead of Saliva. I'll admit that Static-X has some stuff that might sound similiar but really isn't that what alot of successful bands do as well? (Not that i'm putting them up like AC/DC or other bands that repeat themselves) The sheer fact Static-X was on the same tour as Slayer/Pantera/Morbid Angel/Skrape (HAHA!!!) that automatically gives them more credibility than Saliva who I have seen are already playing the State Fair circuit! I have seen the dates, I live in SW MO of course they are all over in this area. Unless you were playing in the mid - late 70's / or a hair metal band there is no reason to be playing the state fair dates yet.
