Default Industrial-EBM-Future Pop Thread

Anybody listen to industrial on here?

I'd listen to more of it, but my Ipod doesn't seem to want to work in my car these days.

Some of the bands I listen to:
:wumpscut:
Nine Inch Nails
Ministry
KMFDM
Pig
Velvet Acid Christ
Icon of Coil
Skinny Puppy
Assemblage 23
VNV Nation
Revolting Cocks
Front 242
God Module
Apoptygma Beserk
Gravity Kills
Front Line Assembly

While I don't listen to industrial much these days, it's the most influential genre in what has become my preferences. I was a big fan of NIN during the last half of high school ('93-'95), which in turn led me down the path of exploring almost every offering of Nothing Records during my college years, with tangents into KMFDM and WaxTrax. Pig and Pop Will Eat Itself emerged as my favorites, but that Prick album is pretty good, too. I also like a bit of The Young Gods, Kissing the Sun in particular.

Then Nothing Records started releasing some Warp Records artists such as Squarepusher and Plaid, and I ended up leaning heavily in that direction. Plaid and Boards of Canada are among my all-time favorites.

Anyway, when I'm in an industrial mood, I usually go for Pig and Nihil-era KMFDM.

It never ever fails to amuse me that bands like VNV Nation, Apop, and Assemblage get lumped into the same general category as bands like Skinny Puppy, Front 242, and KMFDM.

Seeing VNV Nation live was one of the coolest concerts I've been to, it was exactly what you'd expect.

Beefy you should probably check out Grendel and you might like Combichrist's particular brand of stupid.

Sweet list. I don't listen to much modern, and of these the only ones I listen to with much frequency are Ministry and Skinny Puppy.

That said! Check out Kontravoid

It's pretty cool!

Yea, I don't listen to much KMFDM beyond MDFMK and Professional Killer on Hau Ruck.

Was listening to Jesus Built My Hotrod in the car and it still sounds awesome!

Me too! Well I don't like Front 242 (or FLA) very much but hey. That's precisely why I find it amusing. I've also heard stuff like VNV Nation called EBM for electronic body music but apparently THAT ALSO has an entirely different meaning in some electronica circles so I don't even know man.

Speaking of VNV, seeing them live is exactly as awesome as you'd expect it to be.

Beloved is one of my favorite songs.

there was a really great industrial band from Sacramento called Luxt about a decade ago, but they broke up much to my dismay. their album chromasex monkeydrive is great.

Also, the fantastic Japanese industrial band Buck-Tick, which also collaborated with pig-


Does Praga Khan count as industrial?

Oh yea Pig is big in Japan.

I saw VNV Nation 2X. Once in 2004 and once at the Kinetic Festival in Montreal in 2011. God damn that was a once in a lifetime thing. They don't have them anymore, or at least they didn't last year I don't think.

Saw God Module, Assemblage 23, Front 242, Front Line Assembly, Corrupted Suburbs, VNV Nation, Die Krups, Funker Fogt (That was a once in a lifetime for sure!), and many others.

Got a rare FLA Hoodie.

Only other Industrial bands I've seen were KMFDM in, I think it was 1997 or so (Symbols), and then two more times - once in 2002, and the 20th anniversary 2004.

Not really an industrial band, but I saw Kraftwerk in like 2005. That is a show I will never forget.

I recall paying a pretty penny for Genuine American Monster since it only had a Japanese release for quite a while. Salambo and F.O.M. were worth it, though.

Back in the day, I listened to quite a bit of bands like Skinny Puppy, Foetus, Ministry, Machines of Loving Grace, and others. I haven't listened to it nearly as much in the last few years, but once in a while I do.

Thinking of seeing Aesthetic Perfection in Oct.

What do you all think are the "big 4" of Industrial?

I'd say:
Ministry
Nine Inch Nails
Marilyn Manson (up for debate)
Skinny Puppy
KMFDM
Throbbing Gristle

Manson only under consideration because general sound of AS. Anything past that is glam/new wave. Like def some Venn diagram but I firmly say Manson not industrial.

My big 4 (5)
Skinny Puppy
KMFDM
SPK
NIN
(Laibach)

Ministry is awesome, but they went near full thrash like at least 20 years ago. The latest album the most industrial in a long time.

I don't like NIN that much but impossible to ignore the influence

I say Ministry because of their influence. They invented Industrial Metal. Also, Twitch. Anything past Dark Side of the Spoon is dead to me.

I'm with you on NIN. I only like a few of his songs. I read somewhere that industrial clubs didn't play his stuff from '94-99. I can see why you don't like him and don't want him in the 4 because he's the Green Day of Industrial.

MM is iffy because not all of his stuff is Industrial;

Anybody read Assimilate? Good book, but hit on Throbbing Gristle too much. I like how it traced the history and development of Industrial. TG was really raw and started the ball rolling; Skinny Puppy picked up from there, but was still too raw to make it palatable to the masses. NiN really refined it and made it more relevant and listenable. If you wanna call it that.

I love ministry and am def a hesher, but twitch ain't enough!

NIN is lame, but they are huge and def a massive gateway to cooler music.

Honestly, I haven't listened much to Laibach.

Another one you could add is Cabaret Voltaire

The only Laibach I've heard is Let It Be. It's good.

Anyone into Author & Punisher? I find his performances fascinating to watch.

I think Front 242 is a good one. They invented EBM.

Anybody see the documentary on Wax Trax! Industrial Accident?

It's coming out on the 16th. http://waxtraxchicago.bigcartel.com/...entary-blu-ray

ISn't Laibach fascists? You can't tell if they're serious or not. I hope they're not serious. They've been called Rammsteins evil twin.

No - it's deep irony. Keep in mind they were from Slovenia in the soviet era. They are commenting on colonization, westernization etc.

Laibach is the german name of the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana. At the time, repurposing totalitarian imagery was pretty transgressive. Also all their covers are lit.

Of course in this day and age, it has a different impact.

I will say their semi recent concert in NK is somewhat the hugest performance art troll of all time.

Oddly enough, I found Laibach's 2006 album, Volk, at a goodwill for $2. Seems good so far.
