Combichrist was formed as a side project of Icon of Coil frontman Andy LaPlegua. Intended as an outlet for more aggressive material, Combichrist became Andy’s full-time focus after the disbanding of Icon of Coil in 2006. Combichrist has since gone on to become one of the more popular underground dark electro acts.
Starting with their 2003 debut, The Joy of Gunz, Combichrist has earned a passionate following. In 2006, the band incorporated live drums and keyboards. After the release of Scarred, guitar was added. The band has played as a solo act, a duo, a trio, a four-, five-, and six-piece band, and even with a full orchestra backing them. 2012’s ‘Evolution’ tour charted this by having band members join and exit the stage as necessary to replicate various moments in the band’s history.
