|Favorite Industrial Albums|
Been hounding the internet for good industrial groups I haven't heard. Here are some of my all-time and current favorites. Know any I should add?
|10|| ||Mannequin Planet|
This band is all but unknown, and only just know about to release their first album (unsigned). Really good though. Check them out at www.myspace.com/themanneuinplanet
Beautiful and cohesive.
SO crushing, so awesome. Like combining Ministry with Neurosis.
What the Fuck is Wrong With You
Technically this is aggro-techno.
|6||Marilyn Manson |
He brought pop to industrial. Classic.
|5|| ||Android Lust|
Devour, Rise, and Take Flight
I typically like heavier industrial, but this is still very good.
Chromasex Monkey Drive
Only signed for one album (not this one), then broke up. Good group. Sound like KMFDM only better.
Not too nuts about Captain K and the gang, but other favorite albums are Attak and WWIII. Haven't heard anything els but Don't Blow Your Top, which I can't stand. (btw, I stopped ordering these after NIN).
|2||Nine Inch Nails|
The Downward Spiral
Duh. Really any and all NIN again though.
Actually, I could run this list with Ministry albums, I love them ALL save With Sympathy (and I can take or leave Twitch). This one's my fave, but the Bush Bash Trilogy, Dark Side, Filth Pig, Psalm 69, Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, Land of Rape and Honey - Industrial IMO doesn't get better than that.
|Other good industrial groups (honorable mentions) include Unter Null, Aesthetic Perfection, Suicide Commando, Killing Joke, Genitorturers, and Angel Spit, Rammstein, ... More?|
|The Mannequin Planet url should be myspace.com/themannequinplanet|
|List needs Fear Factory.|
|NOW SHUTUP AND SWALLOW|
|i actually JUST did a review on Psyclon Nine's "We The Fallen", it should be on the main page still, i did it today|
|Awesome, ButcheredChildren, I'll check it out. Cool Combi reference|
|3 is the only one that I'm really into. 7 is ok too. This might be something you're interested in checking out:|
|Can you recommend a good Skinny Puppy album? I've downloded random songs and haven't cared for much.|
|Dude, your honorable mentions are way better than the actual list. Although 9 is pretty sweet.|
|That's easy -- "Worlock" from their Rabies album.|
|I haven't listened to a Skinny Puppy album, I just have random songs.|
Listen to whatever it highest rated.
|@Willie & eterium: Rabies it is. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the link.|
@bloc: To each thair own ;)
@any and everyone: Anyone hear Mannequin Planet before?
|@Willie: Wow, that will help a lot, thanks!|
|Well, if we're talking full Skinny Puppy albums, "Too Dark Park" is way better than "Rabies". It's just that the song, Worlock, from the "Rabies" album is their best.|
Also try Acylum - The Enemy
|I personally would have chosen the land of rape and honey instead of animositisomina but overall nice list|
|Circle of Dust - S/T|
Lords of Acid - Voodo-U
Circle of Dust is a fucking killer (christian, ehem) Industrial from the 90's. Check it if you can find it
|good list, i was actually going to make one asking for industrial suggestions, but no need now. Been listening to Godflesh lately, good shit, but all i have is Hymns. Also trying to get into more Misitry. Its funny, the only song I really like by them or have heard more than once is Bad Blood from the Matrix OST. But if all their stuff sounds along those lines, im down.|
|one more rec would be the shizit-alot of people on sputnik really like it, its really industrial metal so it kinda sounds like ministry|
|@Eskate: All Ministry does not sound the same whatsoever. I say try Animositomina. That's one of their heaviest. It blends their speed metal, dance, and ten-minute trance songs better than any other album VERY heavy album. Also, the bass isn't as compromised as the next few albums, as Paul Barker is in the band. |
The album is not too removed from "Bad Blood" but if you really like that song, you might get the album it's from, The Dark Side of the Spoon. Most people say Spoon is among Ministry's worst, but I disagree. I think it sounds like a sequel to their classic, Psalm 69, but w more of that pumping bass you hear on "Bad Blood".
So yeah. These two albums are a good place to start for you.
Swans ( pre- white light material)
would all serve you well
|If you like industrial or industrial tinged music checkout Skinny Puppy, Psyclon Nine, Nurse With Wound, Killing Joke, Fear Factory, Throbbing Gristle, Strapping Young Lad, Throbbing Gristle, Cyanotic, Meshuggah, Pigface, Wumpscut, Suicide Commando, Unter Null, Black Light Burns, Chemlab, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Terrorfakt. These range from pop sensibility type industrial to extreme industrial metal or powernoise electronica. |
