[See a * mark beside a band? I have seen 'em live!]

So I find that most people have heard of the genre known as 'Industrial', but have never sampled the music.

Industrial music, I am often asked, is different to Electro/Electronica in what way? Well thats hard to say. Depending on the band and what-not there are small to extreme ways to tell. A mass of the time the vocal work stands out more, as well as the words that are used and the subjects the singer or singers bring up. To top that off certain samples, sounds, and devices are used that most other forms of music do not stray into. It is much more 'hardcore' the majority of the time - while you will often, again, be unable to really always pick Industrial music apart.

Industrial can often be heard being refered to as 'Elektro' or 'Elektronic Body Music'. Bands such as Front Line Assembly*, Nitzer Ebb, and Front 242 easily fit into that catagory. There is also 'Elektronic Rock' which will often have a slightly more mainstream feel - including bands such as KMFDM*, Zeromancer, and Ministry*.

Depending on the ERA a band is from, there are different sub-catagories to the music. Industrial can be found all the way back into the 1970's - if you try.

Today though, the most popular form is 'Aggrotech' - which appeared in the 'Third Wave', 90's to current. Bands such as Suicide Commando, Wumpscut, Psyclon Nine*, Hocico, Grendel, Combichrist*...The list goes on with some of the biggest names in Industrial.

Industrial music will often also bring out a certain aspect of 'style' in the vast majority of its listeners. These can be seen in subcatagories to the 'Gothic' kids. 'Cyber', 'Cyber Goth', 'Cyber Rave / Club', 'Candy Raver', 'Graver', are all different types of persons and style. The styles do stand out very much and are a common calling card for musical taste.

IN ADDITION, as most often people adore Combichrist and ask for more...

Combichrist is mostly one-man based. Andy is really cool. Sometimes he brings in a friend, or works with other artists.

I think it is too hard to pick other bands similar to Combichrist as they are a very original sound...

Grendel does match up a bit. I have an Album of theirs, the newest one. You know Grendel I am sure - they had a mainstream hit on the dance stations. "Zombie Nation". If you heard it I am sure you would know it.

Andy LaPlegua is originally from the band Icon of Coil. Combichrist was his side project that seems to be just as big or bigger.

You could also try Wumpscut - who I have music of, also. andy also does the side-project Panzer AG which I do not have files of, but there is a site with one file playing in the BG to give an idea:

You can always order albums offline. Very Happy

Cool, I thought Industrial died with Throbbing Gristle. Not quite in the same league but I'll be keeping an eye out for some of these bands next visit to the record store.
I think these download links are illegal without permission from the author.

I like bands that have industrial elements in them - like Rammstein, Rob Zombie, Marylin Manson or SYL. Never listened to "real" industrial bands, though...
yeah, i've been always confused by all that 'industrial' talk asociated with EDM! i thought i at least have a slight idea about what it is and i did some wiki-ing the other day, and realised i don't. so i thought: "ok, so now i do" but now when i read this post of yours i'm even more lost! Shocked Very Happy Laughing Laughing

i would really apreciate it if you could in more detail but still in an understandable manner describe the relation/differene between industrial and EDM.
and what defines a subgenre of a certian EDM genre to be 'industrial'? what i mean here is, what kind of techno is industrial techno, and what kind of hardcore is industrial hardcore?

i hope u'll be able to answer my questions, if there even is a straight answer! Confused
Skinny Puppy is the god of all industrial. I have listened to SP and Front Line Assembly since I was 8 or 9 - industrial/gothic taste was handed down in my family Razz

I absolutely love everything industrial, and if you like it too, check out my solo industrial projekt - Artificial Harmony (

I take most of my influence from FLA and SP, though I've been developing a new sound lately more so gothic industrial (READ: I started using synth guitar )

I hope you enjoy my stuff Smile

Anyways, onto the real subject...Industrial is amazing, Combichrist has a lot of added elements that make it more of a Nu-Industrial - basically meaning it has added trance like elements (They generally use WAY too many sawtooth leads :S)

As for bands like Rammstein, etc...those are NuMetal bands, not industrial - so many people confuse them at first glance. Much like the way many people confuse Slipknot, or Cradle Of Filth (Both Nu/Death Metal bands) with gothic/death rock music (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Christian Death, The Sisters Of Mercy)

Music is so genre based, although many bleed over, and Gothic/Industrial music compliment eachother nicely...

Either way, industrial is amazing...and if you want some humurous/serious (Whichever way you want to take it) industrial ideas, check out - you'll learn what a "rivethead" is Razz
Hi there,

A band that you should check out is Pain. Pain is another project by Peter Tägtgren, also known from the death metal band Hypocrisy and for producing for bands like Dimmu Borgir, Immortal, Children of Bodom and Celtic Frost.

His music on Pain is more like an fusion between Death Metal, Gothic and techno.

For more information check out following sites:


Honestly if you want to know the whole term and history you can check it out at this website

Maybe get a better understanding but I do agree with a lot of what other people have said.
