Played at Graspop Metal Meeting




Norway,United States


Combichrist is an aggrotech band formed by Norwegian Andy LaPlegua, who emigrated to the US a few years after the band’s conception. LaPlegua has a predilection for electronic body music (EBM), although aggrotech has a much more layered and complex sound than EBM. Both the metal masses and aggrotech/EBM scene have embraced the Combichrist concept. Managed by DevilDriver figurehead Dez Fafara, they’ve been on tour with the likes of Rammstein so they’re used to performing in front of huge crowds. Combichrist’s live set comprises tracks from each of their eight albums, from the aggrotech of their 2003 debut ‘The Joy of Gunz’ to the industrial metal of later albums and the bold, more guitar-oriented approach of their most recent CD ‘This Is Where Death Begins’ (2016). Expect a blend of guitars, electronica, obliterating drums, the hypnotic stage presence of singer/founder Andy LaPlegua and a dark and brooding atmosphere. (#GMM19)
