Anyone who is into Industrial music?
...don't want to talk about NIN (we can discuss if he is still industrial or not) - what i want know is: who is listening

Throbbing Gristle
Cabaret Voltaire
Skinny Puppy
Einstürzende Neubauten
Ministry

I've got into Industrial through NIN, although he isn't 100% industrial (the most industrial album will be Pretty Hate Machine). Afterwards i discovered Ministry (though Ministry is more Industrial-Metal, than Industrial) and right now i listen to Skinny Puppys album Bite and i like it... its strange, but its good.

for everyone who don't know what industrial is, click here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_music)

I've never heard any of those bands. But wouldn't that Tool band be industrial also? From what I heard from my friends...

Tool, industrial? never... no way

edit.: forgot to mention that Ministrys album "Psalm 69" is one of my all time favourites albums out there... i'm sure it would be found on my personal top 10 list; so if anyone want to check out Ministry, i recommend Psalm 69!

Anything by NIN should give you a decent idea of Industrial, more specificly try "The Fragile" or "The Downward Spiral". Other than that try anything by KMFDM or Skinny Puppy for Industrial or anything by Ministry for Industrial Metal.

Yeah NIN isn't a 100% industrial, it's more like an alternative artist, although "Pretty Hate Machine" and "Industrial Music" are pretty much industrial.

I love Ministry, imo they are the best Industrial metal band.
Also, i have a question, does Type O Negative is Industrial?

T-Rez is just about my favorite musician ever, and hes not what I call Industrial. He even thinks calling NIN music "industrial" is a bit silly.

Even Trent thinks that calling NIN Industrial is stupid.

No.

Pretty Hate Machine is an angry Depeche Mode album.

Pretty Hate Machine is "synth pop".

Broken is basically a Metal album..

And The Downward Spiral.. is.. Well, just brilliant.

Yes, there was an an EP or Demo called Industrial Music, that was before the PWM, the songs on it are basically Industrial.

Ministry and Rammstein are two good Industrial bands. What are some other good ones I should check out?

I listen to fear factory and american head charge who I believe are/were/etc. industrial. Also sometimes listen to some Type O Negative, who I was also told was heavily inspired by industrial music.

What?

Ever heard Violator? Ever heard Black Celebration?

Strip the vocals from Pretty Hate Machine (aside from Head like a Hole) and throw in David Gahan and you've got yourself a Depeche Mode album.

Anything by NIN should give you a decent idea of Industrial, more specificly try "The Fragile" or "The Downward Spiral".

The Downward Spiral is way too artsy-fartsy to be a good introduction to the genre (one of the best albums ever though). And The Fragile is hardly an Industrial record. Listen to We're In This Together Now, The Fragile, Complication, La Mer, Starfarkers Inc., etc. and see how Industrial it feels then.

I love most NIN, but yeah Broken and The Downward Spiral are really the only Industrial things he's done, except maybe a few tracks on The Fragile (mmm Somewhat Damaged).

Now... Ministry I love. Ministry I will always love. MMM MINISTRY. Although Houses of the Mole is hardly Industrial, it's still cool. All hail Animositisomina.

Other good bands I've heard a few songs by; Machines of Loving Grace (yeah, pop, I know, but their last record was Industrial... whatever its name was), My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, KMFDM, Rammstein (even though they're a blatant rip-off of Ministry)...

And how could no one mention the delightfully homoerotic COIL!?

I've listened to Throbbing Gristle and Einstürzende Neubauten and I've heard of skinny puppy and KMFDM, but other than that my knowledge of industrial is non existent.

Anyone heard of SPK? When someone was recomending me industrial this was one of the bands I listened to for a bit. Not exactly sure if they're industrial.

ok, another topic i`ll enjoy, but not now, as i gotta run to an absinthe party night :D

anyhow, considering the fact that i really like Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle and such, many PE artists (Whitehouse and such) i`ll be back with a more choherent message. Still, i believe that there was a similar topic around here somewhere. Oh, and i posted a long message in which i also mentioned many many things about industrial, you might wanna check it out : http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10602619&postcount=13

you also might check the thread.

cheers :)

Ministry are the best industrial/metal band, i've got the land of rape and honey, twitch, and psalm 69!!!

can someone explain to me why [at least on my copy of] pslam 69 it doesn't say "psalm 69" anywhere on the album, just some weird symbols?

it's like:

K@#$# or some crap

That'd be noise music.

try Dissecting Table if you like Merzbow. That would be the best industrial i ever heard. i believe i've reviewed an album here somewhere. I also started a thread on noise, but i cant find it anymore :)

anyhow, Noise is an independent musical style, do not confuse it with other stuff.
