Andy LaPlagua and his band of miscreants, COMBICHRIST have redefined the sound of modern industrial music and they will be bringing their uncompromising blend of vocal aggression, metal guitar filth and brutal synth manipulation to Australian fans this October.
COMBICHRIST took founder Andy LaPlegua’s hardcore past and electronica present and merged them into a singular, mechanical music monster and mastermind Andy LaPlegua says: “Welcome to the birth, growth, death, and rebirth of a band. COMBICHRIST has become a purely visceral creature, driven by instinct and emotion; stripped of all pretension. It’s raw and uncompromising – it’s fueled by expressions of lust, anger, pain and hate. The never-ending evolution of a sound has finally come full circle. It’s time to feed our demons. It’s been way too long since we visited the roots of this band, and we are injecting it with the future!”
Over the years COMBICHRIST have evolved beyond the demon it was into an unrelenting, malevolent force in music. It’s been 8 long years for COMBICHRIST fans to get to witness their visceral live show and as The Void Report so aptly put it “there’s just not enough bands who bring so much pure entertainment, electronic mastery and nightmarish theatrics to their shows. But we’ve got Combichrist. – The Void Report
