Starting with their 2003 debut, The Joy of Gunz, Combichrist has earned a passionate following. In 2006, the band incorporated live drums and keyboards. After the release of Scarred, guitar was added. The band has played as a solo act, a duo, a trio, a four-, five-, and six-piece band, and even with a full orchestra backing them. 2012's 'Evolution' tour charted this by having band members join and exit the stage as necessary to replicate various moments in the band's history.
Over the years, Combichrist has shifted from a solely electronic act to an industrial band fusing aggrotech and hard rock/metal. Starting with 2013's No Redemption (written for DmC: Devil May Cry), Combichrist began incorporating guitar and live drums in their studio albums. No Redemption showed the group experimenting with more traditional metal elements. 2014's follow-up, We Love You, blended electronica and metal, while 2016's This Is Where Death Begins moved more towards industrial.
Combichrist currently consists of Andy LaPlegua (lead vocals), Eric 13 (guitar), Dane White (drums), Will Spod (percussion), and Elliot Berlin (DJ).
