Sunday night’s Rammstein show at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre was much anticipated by the city’s — and likely the province’s given the out-of-town element — goth, industrial, rock and metal community. So much so that the entire venue was sold out. Superlatives fail to capture the scale of the production — which included, of course, tons of pyro, costume changes, props and much abuse of keyboardist Flake — so let’s show you a little of what went on. While security was strict about filming, we managed to capture a portion of the band’s performance of “Haifisch,” specifically the middle section where Flake wades out into the crowd on a raft.

Opening act Combichrist, who have added a tall, thin guitarist since their last appearance in Toronto last fall, put on a similarly spectacular show, even if they didn’t have as extensive a light show as they did during their headlining run. Here is the band performing “Follow the Trail of Blood” before security rushes in to shout “No filming!”

Rating: 5/5

Combichrist's Andy LaPlegua

Is Combichrist’s Andy LaPlegua the new Trent Reznor? With the Nine Inch Nails mastermind busy scoring A-list Hollywood films (The Social Network) and making music with his (now pregnant) wife (How To Destroy Angels) instead of packing stadiums full of freaks and rivetheads, there’s a space in the underground marketplace for a charismatic and energetic performer like LaPlegua.

Atlanta, GA – Metropolis recording artists COMBICHRIST are gearing up for the release of MAKING MONSTERS on September 28, 2010. Recorded in Totprod Studios in Atlanta, GA and produced by Andy LaPlegua (also the mastermind behind the band), their fifth studio album takes the band beyond the aggressive techno and electro rhythms and propels them into much more primal and raw territory. “It’s beyond my personal demons, and extremely honest,” says LaPlegua.
