The Joy of Gunz is an album by the American aggrotech band, Combichrist. The album shows the very first sound of Combichrist ‒ a mixture of power noise and harsh electronic body music ‒ which later evolved into what LaPlegua dubbed techno-body-music (TBM). Compared to later Combichrist works, The Joy of Gunz is also very limited as far as vocals are concerned.
