My Top 10 Industrial Metal Albums Revisited

I decided to update my top 10 Industrial Metal albums due to the fact that I do not think the list is good at all and doesn't really express my actual top 10 list of industrial metal as of now. Onto the list!
1Godflesh
Pure


Pure sees Godflesh adding some elements of dance and techno in their brand of harsh monolithic and apocalyptic industrial metal
2Red Harvest
Hybreed


Before playing their extreme apocalyptic industrial paranoia metal they're known for, they also played atmospheric ethereal industrial metal which sounds like a mix of Neurosis, Swans, Godflesh and some elements of Ministry before embracing their Fear Factory inspired sound in later albums. their best imo
3Strapping Young Lad
City


Their magnum opus and you can see why. Manic, angry and oppressive industrial metal with a little hint of humor in the mix.
4Ministry
The Land of Rape and Honey


Their first brand of industrial metal (in 2 or 3 songs) mixed with their ebm sound before fully embracing their industrial thrash sound in later albums. Ministry's best imo
5Fear Factory
Demanufacture


After their death metal sound from the Soul Of A New Machine, this album bought in Rhys Fulber of Front Line Assembly and Delerium fame to replace their death metal sound and fully embraces a more cybernetic, futuristic sound mixed with an oppressive thrash metal sound to create an apocalyptic concept of man vs machine which is continued in future albums. An industrial metal classic.
6KMFDM
Angst


While I prefer Symbols, it's not exactly as industrial metal as the others on this list or this album which is why it's added here. KMFDM's first album to fully embrace it's industrial metal sound and one of their finest offerings in the genre with one of their finest openings (Light) in their catalogue
7Pitchshifter
Submit


A mix of their original Godflesh inspired sound while also mixing their Ministry inspired sound which has continued from Desensitized until their departure from that sound to embrace their more Prodigy inspired sound. Personally I liked this mixture of Godflesh and Ministry in comparison to their first and then later albums.
8God
The Anatomy of Addiction


Godflesh mixed with a lot of jazz, live drums, funk and a whole lot of righteous anger
9Skin Chamber
Wound


If Controlled Bleeding was a metal band. An angrier, more raw version of Godflesh and Filth/Cop era Swans
10Scorn
Vae Solis


Before their more ambient, isolation dub sound, they also played metal. Basically a more slower, sludgier and more subdued Napalm Death with a lot of industrial elements of Godflesh
