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.

    We Love You has some great lifting music. "Maggots at the Party" "We Rule the World, Motherfuckers" and "From My Cold Dead Hands" always help me do that last rep.

    Actually liking the "Maggots at the Party" track, however the album on a whole seems to be dipping and diving around too much, i.e. it's not very consistent, which, I think I should enjoy really, I hate albums that sound the same. Might take a while to grow on me, only listened two or 3 times now.

    Your music taste need to be more mature to like their songs, FOR SURE, I think my body is ready for releases <2013 (excluding No Redemption which is great for me) but I can't stand most of "We Love You" songs so far, apparently they don't love us that much as they say xD

    Oh dear elders, new album is just violent. I can listen to good cybergrind for ages but this I cannot bear. First in line for "Shit Release'014" award so far.
