Five acclaimed albums, hundreds of headlining shows,
four months touring Europe supporting Rammstein
(playing to hundreds of thousands of people) ...
Combichrist is fired up and ready for action!
Many acts reach a certain level of success and rest
on their reputations. Combichrist s Andy LaPlegua
returned to the studio with a fistful of inspiration and
a whole lot of nothing to prove. With the new album,
Making Monsters, LaPlegua emerges a more vital beast,
stripped of all pretensions. The new album is raw,
visceral, and seething with uncompromising urgency.
In pushing forward, Combichrist s playfully sinister
facade is torn away. What is exposed underneath is an
uncompromising expression of lust, anger, pain, and
Making Monsters is laden with hook-heavy choruses,
speaker-crushing beats, and dark aggressive vocals.
The first single, Never Surrender, is bound to rule
the dance floors along with other floor stompers
They and Throat Full of Glass. The song Follow
the Trail of Blood (featuring Brendan Schiepatti of
Bleeding Through) is an anthem of aggression, and will
immediately become a crowd favorite. The brooding
Reclamation and Through These Eyes of Pain show
us another side of Combichrist, that of the man inside
the monster. With Making Monsters, Combichrist evolves
beyond the demon it was into an unrelenting, malevolent
force in music.
