Combichrist in Hollywood Nov. 7

Atlanta-via-Norway industrial band COMBICHRIST is headlining the newly renovated Music Box Theater (formerly Henry Fonda Theater) on Nov 7th. In support of the band's fifth studio album, Making Monsters, Combichrist is headlining the three-week long Monster On Tour, with support from Aesthetic Perfection and iVandensphere.

Combichrist close out their 2010 tour schedule with a massive show at NYC's Madison Square Garden, supporting legendary industrial band Rammstein for their first and only show on US soil in 10 years. No stranger to each other, both bands bonded when Rammstein brought out Combichrist on their European tour, which lasted over four months. It was during this time that Combichrist mastermind Andy LaPlegua wrote Making Monsters, marking the first Combichrist record to be written outside of the studio.

Fueled by expressions of lust, anger, pain and hate, Making Monsters is the sound of LaPlegua ripping out his heart and plugging its still-beating deathkicks into his music, rife with hook-heavy choruses, speaker-crushing beats, and dark aggressive vocals. LaPlegua, along with his live band (which includes Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland at the MSG show), put on a live show that are critically lauded and respected, and as Crypt Magazine describes, "known for tons of energy, blood, and a rock n' roll attitude."BlogCritics also warns it's "not for the faint of heart - you wouldn't bring your grandmother to this show."
