"Everybody Hates You"
Label: Metropolis Records (2005)
is the solo electro-industrial/EBM/power noise project of Andy LaPlegua.
Andy is the lead singer ofIcon
of Coil. He also has another solo electro-industrial/EBM/power
noise project called Panzer AG.
This Combichrist project is similar, but more experimental,
then Panzer AG. While Panzer AG sticks
to mainly heavy electro-industrial songs with vocals and power noise
instrumentals, this Combichrist project offers much
Every track on this album is noisy, crunchy and energetic, so you don't
need to worry about any slow songs. But you will have to like a lot
of different electronic music genres to fully enjoy this entire album.
It offers techno/trance/power noise hybrid instrumentals with voice
samples ("this s*it will fcuk you up", "who's your daddy, snakegirl?",
"god bless", "happy fcuking birthday", "lying sack of s*it", "without
emotions"), structured electro-industrial songs with vocals ("enjoy
the abuse", "today I woke to the rain of blood", "feed your anger",
"like to thank my buddies"), and even a couple of EBM songs that
sound like Icon of Coil ("I'm happy anyway", "blut
While I like every song offered here, I still feel there's too many
different styles of music featured that prevent the overall recording
from sounding consistent. This basically sounds like a compilation album
of different bands as opposed to one project doing everything.
It seems like Andy's main reason for this project was to create experimental
techno / trance / power noise instrumentals with sampling that is completely
unlike the music of Icon of Coil and Panzer
AG. And if that's all that was offered here, this project would
make more sense. But by including Icon of Coil type
EBM and Panzer AG type electro-industrial, the project
is missing its own unique sound.
