After having released the internationally best-rated Danish metal album of 2020, Manticora is once again ready to drag their European audience into the world of horror-concept prog/thrash.
"To Live To Kill To Live", as the album was called, finalizes the huge Manticora project of a 334 page novel and a double concept album, written over that same novel. A process that will - after 7 years - see its last chapter closed on this European tour.
With Manticora being described as the perfect hybrid between Blind Guardian and Nevermore, expect a magnitude of aggressive music and energy, released from the stage, no matter if the shows are played as normal shows (if all restrictions are lifted) or if there'll be seated-restrictions at the venues.
Combichrist is an aggrotech band formed by Norwegian Andy LaPlegua, who emigrated to the US a few years after the band’s conception. LaPlegua has a predilection for electronic body music (EBM), although aggrotech has a much more layered and complex sound than EBM. Both the metal masses and aggrotech/EBM scene have embraced the Combichrist concept. Managed by DevilDriver figurehead Dez Fafara, they’ve been on tour with the likes of Rammstein so they’re used to performing in front of huge crowds. Combichrist’s live set comprises tracks from each of their albums; Expect a blend of guitars, electronica, obliterating drums, the hypnotic stage presence of singer/founder Andy LaPlegua and a dark and brooding atmosphere.
