First formed in 2003 by Andy LaPlegua under the name of DRIVE, the group later turned to Combichrist by the time they
released their first album, "The Joy of Gunz", in September of 2003. Combichrist's power noise/techno sound is commonly
referred to as aggrotech, which fits nicely in the industrial niche. The Norwegian group is currently situated in the U.S. and is
comprised of Andy LaPlegua on vocals, Z Marr on keyboards and percussion, Eric 13 on guitar, Brent Ashley on bass and Joe
Letz on drums.
