Ludichrist was one of the more well-known thrash/crossover bands that emerged in the mid eighties, blending both humor and hardcore attitude with above-average musicianship and a host of outside influences. They released two albums on the Combat label, preceded by a lesser-known "live" album recorded at the infamous CBGB club ("live", since, though it was recorded at the club, no audience was present). Compared to other crossover acts of the day, Ludichrist seemed a bit more chaotic and frenzied in the songwriting and musicianship departments. The band more or less metamorphosed into Scatterbrain, and that incarnation lasted until the mid nineties. They did come together in February 2007 for a one-time reunion gig.
