Show Review and Gallery: Combichrist at the Highline Ballroom in NYC 03/23/2017

The Blood Lust Death Tour is currently underway bringing co-headliners Combichrist and Dope along with the support of September Mourning and Davey Suicide to various cities throughout the United States. On Thursday night they had a spectacular turnout at New York City’s Highline Ballroom. Joining the already supercharged lineup for the night were Deprived and Panzie*, who made sure to start the party up right.

Combichrist hit the stage at midnight and the crowd went into a fever pitch. Drummer Joe Letz was the first to walk across the stage placing his floor tom in the hands of the front row to hold while he hit the notes for ‘What The Fuck is Wrong With You?’. When frontman Andy LaPlegua ripped into the first verse, the tone was set: Combichrist was there to tear the place apart with unrelenting fervor. We were the ‘Maggots at the Party’ and loved every minute of it.  Members Brent Ashley, Eric 13, and Nick Rossi all shared the same level of intensity and no one wavered in the slightest straight through to the end.

This band always puts on a phenomenal display of talent with every performance. If engaging, fun, and lively rock-n-roll infused with aggro-tech performances are your thing, go see this band at least once. Or three times, per tour. Who’s counting?
