Who here likes INDUSTRIAL music?
    #8111429 - 03/06/08 05:02 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

So who here enjoys the darker side of music... aka the raging dark forces of chaos embodied in the industrial genre? :wink:

To kick off things I'll post a good quote that I found somewhere that attempts to describe industrial music:

Quote:

OK, so you're curious. What's with industrial? Is it music? Is it art?

Yes, and yes, and yes, darling! Industrial is the broad category of composition that is the soundtrack for our modern times. It is a first cousin of punk, ugly step sister to goth, orphan of techno. Dark, sinister, sometimes surreal, sometimes subliminal, sometimes creepy, sometimes sunshine, sometimes noisy, sometimes brutal, and even offensive. Most of all, industrial music is pure creativity.

Think of classic rock as a hampster on a treadmill. Industrial, then, is the hampster loose in the silverware drawer: scurrying, knocking things about, scratching, hiding, cowering, weeping, sighing, sleeping with one eye open, screaming incoherently in the dark, wetting itself by its own reflection in the spoons. Put simply: Industrial music is both the beauty and the terror of smashing glass. The nausea and rhythm of a power drill. The irresistible and horrific silence following a scream. Are you ready?

The Prodigy's usually considered more electronica... they have some sick beats, though. (I recently got addicted to Their Law.) Some industrial aficionados might dispute NIN being industrial just because of their mainstream popularity, but most would agree they definitely qualify.

IMO, industrial is a very awkwardly composed genre: if you want to be really technical, only Throbbing Gristle and similar experimental noise bands during the 70's would be considered industrial.

By now, the genre's stretched to include NIN (which does pop melodies fused with noise beats), Ministry and the like (who fuse metal with electronic dance beats), and my personal favorite, Skinny Puppy, that devoted themselves to generating music out of chaos, destruction, and focusing on the darker side of life. VNV Nation and some futurepop bands are even lumped into the genre, as is Rammstein, which would be more of a metal band with bone-crushing riffs than anything else.

Check out Worlock by Skinny Puppy, Embryodead by Wumpscut, and Self Bias Resistor by Fear Factory for a good, diverse spread of industrial.
