Album Review

COMBICHRIST’s founding motive was to combine hardcore with electronics into a single, mechanical music monster. Over a decade on, they’re still here, grinding it out. By “they”, of course, I really mean “he”, as in Andy LaPlegua. LaPlegua has enjoyed operating under a number of monikers, but COMBICHRIST is perhaps his best-known outlet by now, and under this guise he’s forged a reputation for releasing some of the most uncompromising music in its genre, namely relentlessly hard-edged industrial.

This latest offering finds COMBICHRIST as aggro, abrasive and hard-edged as ever. ‘We Love You’ finds them snarling, gnashing and blasting their way through a 13-track set, spitting venom through a wall of techno-industrial noise. Unless you count the brief respite of ‘The Evil in Me’, which is murky, dark and wallows in a swamp in which festers the corpse of MARILYN MANSON and which is by far the album’s most “sensitive” track, it doesn’t let up from beginning to end, and it’s brutal, a relentless assault of serrated edges and pulverizing force. The guitars burn like the fires of hell, while the drums hit hard enough to shatter an elephant’s skull.

‘Maggots at the Party’ brings a more danceable groove, but it’s still fucking ferocious. ‘Fuck Unicorns’ and ‘Love is a Razorblade’ are about as cuddly as their titles suggest, and it’s fair to say that ‘We Love You’ does nothing – sonically or lyrically – to suggest adoration or appreciation: bringing the band’s heaviest, hardest shit to date it’s a relentless aural blitzkrieg  that raises the blood pressure and makes the muscles twitch involuntarily.
