Combichrist

“I’m so sick of unicorns,” says Combichrist’s Andy LaPlegua about the song “Fuck Unicorns” from their new album We Love You (Out Of Line [EU]/Metropolis Records [US]). “They went from being something ironic and ridiculous, to an overexposed hipster icon. Fuck unicorns!”

In some ways, the peaceful and gentle unicorn can be seen as the symbolic opposite to Combichrist. To them, music equals mayhem and volume; the louder and the more aggro, the better. Their brand of head-pummeling electronica has been amped up and adrenalized. There are louder guitars, heavier drums, darker electronics and a lot more anger.

Kicking off the album is the disjointed and anthemic…

Dope

The band was founded by song writer and lead singer Edsel Dope in 1997. As a child Edsel and his brother, Simon Dope, were separated when their parents divorced. When the two were adults, they reunited and Simon joined Edsel’s band, playing keyboards. The pair then recruited Tripp Eisen as bassist, Preston Nash as drummer, and Sloane Jentry as guitarist.

Flanked by bandmates Frankie Sil [Bass], Ben Graves [Drums], Needlz [Keyboards], and Eric Griffin [Guitar], he distills heavy metal, industrial, and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. Whether or not you’re prepared, Suicide has arrived.

As a kid, he always knew the “safe” life wasn’t for him. In order to tune out the fights of a broken home…

Inviolate

INVIOLATE: 1. adj. Not violated or profaned; intact, free from violation, injury, desecration, or outrage.

Originally founded with Bryon Brown on guitar, Chris Farmer on bass and vocalist/sample engineer Kadria, Atlanta’s Inviolate continues to create and perform with Kadria at the creative helm, along with an array of the southeast’s finest rock and metal talent for live shows (musicians who play live with the band are part of “Inviolate 2.0“) and in the studio. Inviolate’s sound is multi-faceted, defying the labels of mere “metal”, “rock”, “electronica”, even “industrial” but a sonic blend of all. To visually augment the sonic onslaught, Inviolate’s frontwoman…
