Review: Combichrist —We Love You
Combichrist’s love comes with a caveat: “Our only hope to save you is to terminate you.” And so these Norwegians rage forth with snarling synths and squealing feedback, yelling about death and destruction, and, um, unicorns? OK, “Fuck Unicorns” doesn’t actually say the “U” word, but you get the point–these guys are serious badasses and funny as hell in a deadpan nihilistic way. They’re masters of EDM–which, in their case, stands more for Electronic Death Metal than Electronic Dance Music–but also twisted enough to end the album with the mock-folk confessions of “Retreat Hell 2.” We love you, too, man.
