Norwegian-American electronic hard rock/heavy metal group COMBICHRIST returns with its eighth studio album, "This Is Where Death Begins", on June 3 via Out of Line Music. An apocalyptic behemoth of guitars, electronica, infernal drums and dark elemental force, the CD was produced by Oumi Kapila (FILTER) plus COMBICHRIST's own Andy LaPlegua and mastered by Vlado Meller (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SLIPKNOT). The 15-track album also features guest vocals from Chris Motionless (MOTIONLESS IN WHITE) and Ariel Levitan (MXMS).
For COMBICHRIST to name their album WE LOVE YOU, it d be easy to think the band has abandoned their sonic assault for something softer, fluffier and less bloody. Knowing Combichrist, though, that couldn t be further from the truth. With their trademark body-pummeling beats and vitriolic vocals intact, Combichrist s latest full-length album digs deeper into the abyss and delivers 13 tracks of relentless aggression and manic electronica. From the stuttering thump of Every Day Is War to the choking-on-glass/buzz-saw aggression of Satan s Propaganda to the breakneck punk metal of Love Is A Razorblade , We Love You leaves you gasping for breath.
Guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has recorded and performed with a large variety of rock acts over the years, including a long tenure with UK gothic rock Legends The Mission, also Peter Murphy of Bauhaus, 3 albums and various tours with Trip hop Svengali Tricky, also electronica pioneer Gary Numan, Ricky Warwick of Thin Lizzy/BSR, plus many more including a single with Al Jourgensen of Ministry, performances with P.J.Harvey, recorded with Roger Daltrey of The Who, members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alanis Morrisette, Revolting Cocks, Ginger of The Wildhearts, Franz Treichler of the Young Gods, Combichrist, Warrior Soul, Prong, plus his recent work on the new album by Black Star Riders…
