Industrial

Posted by Nova - April 26th, 2014


Anyone who knows me knows i love industrial music but there has been some pretty horrid mislabeling in the past years.

Really all you need to know is that "Industrial music is a style of experimental music that draws on transgressive and provocative themes. The term was coined in the mid-1970s with the founding of Industrial Records by the band Throbbing Gristle."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_music

Besides Throbbing Gristle there's Coil, Psychic Tv, Cabaret Voltaire, Einstürzende Neubauten, Skinny Puppy, Swans, etc. 

Nowadays though, the tag is thrown around a lot to include bands that have no business being labeled that.

No joke, on LastFM Mindless Self Indulgence is tagged this genre. So i wouldn't use that site as an accurate source.

Here's a better one:http://www.darkdb.com/eklein/catind.html

 

All i'm saying is please label bands correctly.

I used to but ehh..

Yep throbbing gristle is industrial. Skinny Puppy are Electro Industrial which is a subgenre of industrial http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electro-industrial
Also I listened to that ordo band. They are kinda dark ambient. Like it.
