The newest addition to the Static-X camp is drummer Nick Oshiro, who quickly established himself as the perfect successor to departed drummer Ken Jay in June 2003, and the ideal player to fill the parts laid down by Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle) in the studio.
Previously he played in Seether, where he replaced original drummer Dave Cohoe. That band began it's climb to the top in 1999 under the name Saron Gas. Playing around South Africa they quickly gained a fan base in the country's rock community. Releasing "Fragile", it becoming an instant hit, gained them a top live draw.
The band soon got interest from Wind-up records and began work on their sophomore album "Disclaimer". Working with Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach and Drowning Pool) the guys came up with an intense rock album with solid rock guitar and hard hitting moments and then slowing it down with mid-tempo attitude to give you an album that is diverse in musical spectrum.
Funny detail: Nick Oshiro had to step in for Josh Freese in both Seether and Static-X: Freese played drums as a session musican on both a Seether album and on a Static-X album before Oshiro was asked to join as a band member.
