To quote vocalist/programmer Jimmy Urine, “‘F*** Machine’ is a dirty song about f***ing so much that you become a machine, so it’s the perfect song for a remix record.” And so we tell you about F*** Machine, the upcoming remix album that will be released January 14th, 2014 via Metropolis Records. The 12-track album features remixes by Combichrist, KMFDM, Mustard Pimp, and more, of “F*** Machine”, a track from the recently released How I Learned To Stop Giving A Sh*t And Love Mindless Self Indulgence.
Jimmy continues, “We have remixes from our usual gang of friends like KMFDM, Combichrist and Mustard Pimp… plus some new friends like Blush Response. We also have remixes from LJU, the world’s only hermaphrodite DJ, and a remix of ‘Jack You Up’ by Black Lipstick who are so goth that they are actually card-carrying members of The Black Panthers. Rounding the whole thing out is my lovely wife Chantal Claret on the ‘Chantal Loves Jimmy Remix’, telling me how she wants to make a f*** machine with me.”
You can pre-order the physical album via Metropolis Records or digitally via Bandcamp. Head on below to check out the track list, hear the original song, and see the album cover. READ MORE

Electronic band Combichrist has released No Redemption, which features 13 tracks that they composed for the recently released DmC: Devil May Cry (review). The soundtrack can be purchased via iTunes here.
Andy LaPlegua states, “As an avid gamer myself I was honoured to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music.” READ MORE
Video game developers Capcom and Ninja Theory have confirmed today that both Noisia and Combichrist are the composers for DmC: Devil May Cry, the upcoming hack n’ slash action/adventure game for Xbox 360 and PS3. There will also be licensed Combichrist songs within the game. A sample of the soundtrack can be heard below (you can download it for free here).
Noisia states, “It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It’s great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass!”
Combichrist lead singer Andy LaPlegua adds, “As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music. I’m looking forward playing the finished game when it comes out.” READ MORE

Well, it’s that time of the year again, the time for love, passion, flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, romance and cupids. Oh, and also a lot of pregnancies.

Not only that, Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit, Black Light Burns) will be joining Combichrist as guitarist for both shows. Color me extremely jealous of both dates! Make sure to check out our exclusive interview with Wes Borland HERE.
Combichrist released ‘Making Monsters’ late September, so make sure to pick up your copy.
Metropolis recording artists COMBICHRIST have been tapped as main support for RAMMSTEIN’s first and only show on U.S. soil in ten years at NYC’s legendary Madison Square Garden. The show will take place on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
Rammstein and Combichrist are no strangers to each other. Both bands toured Europe together for four months in 2010, strengthening a tie that ultimately brought them together for what will undoubtedly be an amazing evening of beat-driven metal and industrialized mayhem.
While Rammstein will be returning from a tour of Latin America before this show, Combichrist will have wrapped up their previously announced U.S. Monsters On Tour with Aesthetic Perfection and iVardensphere as support as well as a handful of dates in Australia. Due to the announced Madison Square Garden date, the previously announced New York City date on November 20th has been canceled (refunds available at point of purchase). In addition, the Montreal, QC on November 18th has been canceled as well. Replacement shows on those dates have been announced in Ithaca, NY and Pittsburgh, PA.
Every Monday night, at Club Necto in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is Factory Monday, a night filled with Industrial, EBM, Goth, Electronica, Synth, etc… music. It’s a night when the darker characters of our society can come out and play. Earlier this year, I did an interview at Club Necto with Ronan Harris of VNV Nation, who claims that in all his travels and his performances throughout the world, there is no place quite like Factory Monday.
Each year, Factory Monday releases a CD with some of the most popular tracks of the year and gives it out for free to the club goers. You can check out the Factory Monday 2010 CD Track List (courtesy of DJ Jinx) HERE. You can also download the CD for free for the next two weeks by clicking HERE!
With the release of their fifth studio album Making Monsters coming on September 28, 2010, Metropolis recording artists Combichrist have announced dates for Monsters on Tour with support from Aesthetic Perfection and Ivardensphere. Tickets for the tour go on sale this weekend (tour dates below).
Kicking off on November 3rd in New Orleans and circling around the States, this is the band’s first tour of the US after four months on the road supporting Rammstein in Europe. Combichrist’s much lauded and respected live shows are, 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.”
Metropolis recording artists Combichrist are gearing up for the release of Making Monsters on September 28, 2010. Recorded in Totprod Studios in Atlanta, GA and produced by Andy LaPlegua (also the mastermind behind the band), their fifth studio album takes the band beyond the aggressive techno and electro rhythms and propels them into much more primal and raw territory. “It’s beyond my personal demons, and extremely honest,” says LaPlegua.
Kicking off with the ominous and foreboding “Declamation”, Making Monsters is a journey deep within the reaches of the mind of LaPlegua, who spent the last year, deep in introspection, as he toured four full months in Europe with Rammstein in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Diving deep into the darkest corners of his mind, he’s created an album devoid of pretension and conscious thought. 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. The first single “Never Surrender” is bound to rule the dance floors along with other floor stompers “They” and “Throat Full of Glass”. The baretoothed aggression of “Follow the Trail of Blood” (featuring Brendan Schiepatti of Bleeding Through) will immediately become a crowd favorite while the brooding “Through These Eyes of Pain” takes a much subtler approach and shows us another side of Combichrist, that of the man inside the monster.
