Industrial is a style that has so much potential, but NIN is the only one that has dare I say "nailed it"? Anyone else have any good Industrial artists?
>muh trve cvlt indvstrial
Industrial elitists are the worst.
Low quality b8 man. You can start by listening to Skinny Puppy (one of Reznor's main influences), Throbbing Gristle and >>61914484
NIN aren't very good OP, listen to Throbbing Gristle or Chrome instead. You could also try This Heat and Pere Ubu or go even further back and listen to the Krautrock groups who predated and heavily influenced later industrial bands, like Faust and Cluster.
Here's a chart to help you out OP:
I didn't make it but it's surprisingly good as /mu/ charts go.
great album op
don't listen to these faggots
skinny puppy and ministry are okay, but you'll turn into a faggot if you get into them
so, you're okay with nin
pretty great industrial rock, and hella influential too
hey man fuck off Skinny Puppy are amazing
I do agree, Ministry were way better in their early years, they went to shit after a couple of albums.
Also, OP check out 10,000 Homo DJs, a project that involved Reznor and the guys from Ministry iirc
Going from accessible industrial rock to harder industrial, you could give these a listen:
- The Young Gods
- Einstürzende Neubauten
- Skinny Puppy
- Test Dept.
- Throbbing Gristle
Alternatively, if you want something to dance to, look into EBM, electro-industrial etc — Front 242, Front Line Assembly, Nitzer Ebb etc. As >>61914658 said, you can go from post-punk to industrial with Chrome etc. There are pathways from metal, from noise, from techno, from dark ambient, a lot of genres really.
Yeah I was going to post that chart. There was a second one which was just grouped recommendations in Wordpad, so "unfinished" but a solid selection of albums; does anyone have it?
(Pic is completely unrelated, I had attached the chart >>61914793 posted and I don't know how to unattach it except by selecting another one.)
anyone who says nine inch nails (or at least the downward spiral) isn't good has shit taste, but there is plenty of other great industrial. check out throbbing gristle, foetus, or nurse with wound.
so does anyone know of othher charts? I always loved industrial but only know coil, TG, NIN. SO I guess Things like that. Also Iv'e heard alot about how shitty skinny puppy is from alot of people who like industrial.
You know those bands, but have you listened to all their albums, plus everything from their "camp"?
If not listen to more TG, Coil, Psychic TV, Chris & Cosey, Boyd Rice, SoiSong, Thighpaulsandra, Cyclobe, Drew McDowall, etc.
TG and PTV live albums alone is an absolute fuckload of music.
TDS is in the same vein as pic related, and the "good" grunge albums.
They're not the only good industrial band, but they sure as hell have the best singer of all the industrial bands out there.
As a huge fan of Ministry, KMFDM, Skinny Puppy, and NIN, I often find the 'industrial' voice used by Ministry and Skinny Puppy to be really grating. I never have that problem with Trent's voice.
Also, TDS is god-tier.
He found getting famous and being almost mainstream annoying, so I think it's more a case of him making good yet incidentally accessible music. He was never aiming for popularity.
>It's just straight up yelling
That would be power electronics. Most industrial uses more traditional spoken word, singing (when there are melodies at all), etc.
I actually find it hard to label Trent's work as "industrial" because it's not, it's more "synths in rock". Industrial is a whole scene NIN's music would never slot perfectly into. Even Trent has stated he doesn't think his work is industrial.
True innovators within a genres don't usually consider themselves to be of that genre, sometimes attempting to distance themselves from any percieved ties.
Notable exception: Can, who considered themselves a literal progressive rock band.
pretty hate machine = synthpop
broken = industrial metal
the downward spiral = industrial rock
the fragile = experimental rock
with teeth = alternative rock
year zero = glitch pop
ghosts i-iv = ambient
the slip = industrial rock
hesitation marks = electronic pop
NIN isn't true industrial. It's synth rock, and he's made more than just rock music, he's made electronic, and dark ambient which is an offshoot of industrial.
Legit industrial makes heavy use of recorded material to create sound collages and noise.
Any one know any other good Skinny Puppy revival bands?
Define "industrial" please. That definition of music is so nebulous to me.
Why are you being so agressive, chill guys.
"Synths" are not the only requisite to be industrial dude. Brainiac sounds more like noise rock meets Joy Division's post punky synth usage
This is a thread about industrial music and he specifixally mentioned Reznor's direct influence (even though it was left out of context as he didn't mention Brianiac as a direct influence until With Teeth)
I wouldn't go as far as to say the only good industrial music out there, that's just fucking stupid and shows you haven't really dug deep into the genre. The Downward Spiral however is among the best industrial albums for sure, anyone who say's it's not industrial is a contrarian hipster faggot. The way trent warped sound and noise and combined all the best elements of noise and industrial tropes with great song writing is an accomplishment.
It's repetitive, but that's part of the point. It respects and exemplifies the bludgeoning monotony of classic industrial and power electronics.
Plus, Boyd does allow subtle details and changes to creep into the sound as well, which is part of his genius.
I guess Velvet Acid Christ would count too. I just hate supporting that guy because whines like a little bitch during live shows about how poor and pathetic he is.
If you want to laugh, follow the dude on Facebook. Once a month Bryan Erickson gets on the VAC page to sell his gear and bitch about how it's impossible for him to get booked and how he never makes money from touring.
The NON stuff that's purely loop-based is best appreciated as ambient music, but later NON albums like Might! actually have spoken word songs on them.
It's okay to not like everything, and I agree that Boyd and DI6 together are better than their component parts.
NON had Douglas P and Rose McDowall in it at one point, so there is that facet of the project.
Industrial music had nothing to do with factory/construction settings and sounds. The reason it is labeled "industrial" is because industrial was the label throbbing gristle, the pioneers, started. Other bands that had similar aesthetics were grouped in with the label.
This album is an absolute masterpiece. If you haven't heard it before then you are missing out so much in your life:
Rammstein ripped off Killing Joke's Millennium song. Listen to it and you will hear the Rammstein similarity:
This album was released the same year Rammstein were formed.
Tabarnak...mon ostie de plebien sale, j'espere que cé une ostie de joke...
Un autre pour toé..mon criss de OP attardé qui devrais jamais faire de post sur st'ostie de site la...
Parce que je me sens généreux..mes criss de paysans sale...
Best industrial song ever incoming
T'as ben raison, Bubba..
Il y en a deux dans ma ville, un couple, lel...
Se marde la devrait jamais arrivé, esse, les goths devrais toujours etre ridiculement maigre...
This is what I consider to be perfect industrial, if it is even industrial at all
