Combichrist @ The Galaxy Theater 5/19/2011
With a night off between opening for Rammstein, Combichrist gave the fans a special treat headlining The Galaxy in Santa Ana. And they weren’t alone. Brandan Schieppati from Bleeding Through came out to sing his part in Follow the Trail of Blood. Gen from Genitorturers made her cameo for Kickstart the Fight. For the encore, Sin Quirin of one of the opening bands (The Great Americon) finished off the show.
Speaking of Genitorturers, Combichrist introduced their new guitar player Abbey Nex who has been in Genitorturers and most recently Psyclon Nine. He fits in the band well and I hope they start recording future albums with guitar on them (live drums too for that matter). I just hope they don’t follow the path of Psyclon Nine and try to go full metal. With Andy you’ll never know.
At this point I think I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve seen Combichrist. The live show just keeps getting better. Because of this, I make every effort to see them play whenever they come to town, even if they’re opening for Tiger Army…
