Nick Oshiro (born July 29, 1978) is an American musician, best known as the current drummer of the industrial metal band Static-X. He has previously played with the South African post grunge band Seether. He started out with a drumkit made by his father as he stated in an interview with Tama. It was made of pots and pans, of which his father made a whole kit from. Already at the age of nine, he wanted to be a rockstar after seeing a Whitesnake video. Leaving Seether in 2003, he joined Static-X as a touring drummer but eventually became a full-time member. While on tour on April 11 2007 in Abilene, Texas he broke his hand and was back in four weeks. Nick Oshiro uses a Tama drumkit (it's a Starclassic Maple in Blue Galaxy Fade), Sabian cymbals, Vater drumsticks and Remo drumheads. Some of his influences are Abe Cunningham, Morgan Rose and Tim Alexander.





Josh Freese played the actual drums on this album, however, as Nick was not in the band during the recording. He is shown to be in the band and credited as the band's drummer in the album booklet. However, Josh Freese still gets mentioned as performing the drumming of the album.
