Biography

Norway (2003 – present)

“Combichrist” is an group, formed in Norway and currently based in the United States.

In 2003 Andy LaPlegua of “Icon of Coil” wrote a few / cross over tracks under the name of “D.r.i.v.E.”. This was changed to “Combichrist” when the debut album, “The Joy of Gunz” was set to be released on Out Of Line. The name Combichrist originates from a hardcore fanzine LaPlegua made during the late 90s, with “Jr Ewing” guitarist Håkon Mella.

The follow up EPs, and the clamour for live shows, sent Combichrist out on the road where they would become known for their strong and energetic performances.

Their second EP, “sex, drogen und industrial”, spent 7 weeks at number one in the DAC charts.

In March of 2007 they released their third album “What the fuck is wrong with you people?”. “Today We Are All Demons”, was released on January 20th, 2009.

The band had been selected to support industrial metal band “Rammstein” for their 2009 European tour and continued to support them during the 2010 part of the tour.

August 2010 saw the release of “Making Monsters”, which had full tracks available for streaming on the website, each track being rolled out for a new one. Combichrist undertook a tour in support of the new album in late 2010, with “Aesthetic Perfection” and “iVardensphere” as the support bands.

Their most recent album, “No Redemption”, was released in January of 2013 in both single and 2CD versions. This album was the official soundtrack album for the video game “Devil May Cry” and caused controversy amongst their fanbase due to a shift in style to industrial metal. The limited edition bonus CD was essentially a greatest hits compilation.

    @razor_sharp7 : Andy makes a thorough cleaning of neurons by the succession of trance / psychedelic songs and vindictive / protest / rock songs ...

    Послушав полную дискографию, вынужден согласиться с некоторыми из последних здешних комментаторов с тем, что раннее творчество поярче будет конечно, хотя и не знаток жанра, так сказать.

    Are they still doing their industrial metal/post-hardcore phase?

    The beat of their songs are too repetitive.

    Не любитель, но раньше они явно были интереснее. А сейчас превратились во что-то несерьезное, для 16-тилетних детей. Apoptygma Berzerk и Combichrist - самое большое позорище на электро-индустриальной сцене.

    Их музон весьма неплохо вписался в DMC.
