Not into the genre myself but Add Violence (2017) from NIN still blows my mind, not sure if that qualifies as industrial though?

Perhaps it got supplanted by Brostep as the treble-delivery system of choice? :wink:

It still exists. Industrial in general survives as club music though, so it was superseded for the most part by computer based musicians playing keyboard dominated Industrial dance music. Industrial rock groups from back then still tour, Ministry, NIN, Unsane and Killing Joke off the top of my head have come through town recently.

Being primarily a guitar player with a love of Industrial and Electronic music in general myself. I'm slightly disappointed that club music won out in terms of where Industrial survives today, but at least it survives.


To nerd it up a bit, Killing Joke are Post Punk, they fit into Industrial loosely, but they were formed in 1980.

Trivia time: I did some programming on Killing Joke’s Pandemonium album. (1993)

It was like a BC-->AD musical moment for me.

I grew up in Chicago, so my friends and I were always going to Waxtrax shopping and seeing industrial artists just hanging out there for the studio. Crazy place to be if you were into industrial music back then.

Yeah, with Death Grips opening no less. Made for a crazy crowd, half teen age kids with neon ties and half heavily tattooed guys and gals my age in black leather!
They're putting out a new record soon so they should be back through. :)

There is irrefutable scientific evidence that the decline of industrial rock commenced at precisely the moment NIN released "March of the Fuckheads". This paved the way for the marching in of Fuckhead acts such as Panic at the Disco, Fallout Boy and Justin Bieber, to name just a few of the many.

Fuckhead, just one of Austria's oldest and most bizzarre industrial bands :-)

Very loosely. I'd rather say KJ are, or was anyway, their own genre, though I put them together with other bands at the time. Always stood out to me. Sometimes these days they are sounding more like being within a genre like metal or whatever. I've yet to hear a KJ song that sounded industrial to me though, unless it was a NIN remix or something. Maybe this is just a matter of perspective? That, or the fact I haven't seen them live for ages. I will never forget the first concert. It changed everything already at the sound check (I was in the front) with only Paul playing the drums. A defining moment.

That's also in my opinion, one of the best songs ever by Test Department: Test Dept - Fuckhead (youtube).

I like their strike-fabrique-album with agitative speech in the beginning.
Late 80s-early 90s when i first heard this type of music, i had the impression that "you must use industrial stuff, like iron plates, heavy machinery etc". I was kinda dissapointed when i listened to their 'electronic' stuff, like fuckhead.

Yea i've found it,this one

From those days, Einstürzende Neubauten is still one of my favorite bands of all times though. (And i can speak zero german.. except noch ein bier!)
