Neither one really, they're from the seventies so it was more so laying the ground work for the genre than easily fitting into a category of it.

I'd describe it as psychedelic rock, with a lot of industrial tape experiments and grooves made from samples and found sounds. There's occasionally free jazz jamming and even the somewhat spaced out pop song here and there.

Hell yes, but is Filth the only Swans album you have? If so, get PlayThe Great Annihilator and White Light From the Mouth of Infinity first.

K so I got bored and took the liberty of uploading Faust's first album, if anyone's interested in it.

Already brought this up once but I figure since it's the industrial/noise thread I might as well mention it, I've been making electronic songs and just starting to come up with things that are credible. Only a couple people I know have given feedback so it's hard to tell if they have appeal or if it's just a personal thing

I'd strongly hesitate to call it industrial, they're short instrumentals that take influence from the genre though, mostly poppy melodies and mechanical noises.

I never really got into NIN but I was giving the Downward Spiral a proper listen last night and I really enjoy it, my attention tends to waver after the first few songs though. Heresy is incredible, always sends chills through me. But seeing as there is a kind of pop influence over it i've seen industrial fans carry on about how bad they (he?) are (is?).

The second gets old incredibly, incredibly quickly, but there's a couple of songs that do a good job of making you feel all tough and ****.

I realized that I love really, really poorly written EBM.

it's absolutely ridiculous but I love it

thaw isn't as weird, really Godflesh influenced

actually now that I think about it Godflesh probably took influence from Foetus I think they came later

Yeah, it's taking a risk. But I can honestly say it's gotta be one of the most ingenious stylistic splices in modern music history.

I had apprehensions for a while but I finally got around to listening to The Land of Rape and Honey earlier and I'm actually feeling it. It's simple and kind of silly but it has some grooves.

Been thinking about it for a while and I suppose I can't put it off much longer, I'm about to stock up on industrial records. That idea I had about listening to only post-punk/african chants/dub-step for a few months was misguided anyaway

i find it incredibly difficult to hate NIN or trent reznor - and in my music community its either love or hate for him no in-between

most of the arguments i hear for why NIN sucks are based around the pop appeal and the sheer accessibility of reznor's music. which is really ironic because reznor probably should be one of the biggest influences of anybody who does music themselves (which most of the fringe EBM/industrial bands have to do)

he does it all alone - and i think creates some really good stuff. the newer albums since "With Teeth" were pretty lackluster but the early material is some of the best and most important music ever made for this genre, and reznor is easily the first step into understanding this world of sound imo (another first step by comparison would be skinny puppy, etc)

but anyways, threadstarter, you should check out these two bands i've been into for the past year or so. they are relatively unknown and not cared about, but for some reason i just always think of them for this genre

http://www.myspace.com/empusa

http://www.myspace.com/blackswaninsurgency

its EBM industrial done right, i love the vocalist. (same vocalist for both projects.) the first is typical cybergoth style EBM, second is a sort of strange anarchist/punk EBM vibe. really interesting break from the a-typical "blood and gore" theme.

Granted everything from PHM to Broken was classic. With Teeth had some very solid songs on it but they were surrounded by filler, so I'd easily call it the worst album.

The Slip, Ghosts and Year Zero were all brilliant in my book.

you think the slip is brilliant? ugh, yuck. I've been seriously disappointed by every release since With Teeth. There were some songs on WT that were decent (EIETS for example) but for the most part the album as a whole is just not good.

I actually haven't met anybody that liked The Slip till you just now, haha. I just don't feel like its a NIN record. Feels more like reznor joined a band, and the best thing about NIN was the isolation that went along with the music. It just sounded like it was made by one guy in one studio and that sorta mystique makes the stuff a lot better. I mean The Fragile was basically recorded over the course of years by nobody but reznor in the basement studio of an old funeral home if memory serves

but now its getting a little too "big budget" for me and there is nothing wrong with that, but i think reznor's relaxation into the spotlight is showing a little bit. nothing is polished and nothing really has what made NIN great.

i will give him this, though - ghosts was the definitive release of his career. not only that, but it kept him current: he embraced the trend of free music downloading. Proves to us yet again that he always has what it takes to be on the cutting edge of great music and the philosophy of listening to it.

I definitely agree on the Reznor joining a band feel to The Slip. It's more toned down straight forward rock, which is somewhat below par but most of the songs are solid. What I liked most about it was that there were songs on it that were like nothing he'd released previously (Echoplex, Four of Us Are Dying)

Ghosts is hardcore.
