Best Industrial Bands

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Coil Coil Coil were an experimental group consisting of Jhonn Balance and Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson, the latter of Throbbing Gristle fame. Formed in 1982, the duo went on to create well-celebrated albums such as 1987's Horse Rotovator, 1991's Love's Secret Domain, 1999's Musick To Play In The Dark, as well more.

Probably the first worthwhile band in this list, and it's not even in the top 30. Sad

Music by people on acid for people on acid!


... An absolute master piece of perfect production.

Move this group up. Pioneers all the way.

THANKS for finding a cool one! It is really good

Listen to Nail & Hole 10 times in a row and get enlightened.

Well, for one thing, they're the only industrial band on this list, and for another, Jim Thirlwell is probably the best industrial musician on the planet.

Interesting to see a guy who hates to be called industrial act, but yes for me he was and perhaps still is one of the biggest insipirational industrial projects

Can't believe they're so low on the list! Very unique sound, check out the rabies and radium albums, pure gold. And the song Alistaja, crank up the bass and it'll blow you away.

Such a beautiful, unique voice. Her lyrics are so powerful. In my opinion she is one of the best voices in rock! And she's stunning!

No-one rocks a violin like her.
Not a lot of people have the amazing voice-range she has.
No-one is as bad-ass as this little doll.

More industrial than VNV, more ethereal than NIN. Perfect Industrial. Listen to the Burukusu remix of "Spark," or listen to "Dissappoint." Play "Flourescent Skies;" in mixed company. The uninitiated will stop to ask you who it is.

76 Atari Teenage Riot


I really loved there guys when I was a teen, still frequent them on YouTube.

77 Calmando Qual

Every fan of fine industrial/experimental music falls for Calmando Qual, when they hear them! Japanese indy. Unpredictable, original, sometimes heavy and sometimes subtle. Artful and contagious.

78 Kidney Thieves

A great band. More of a poppy take on industrial but still better than a few of the wanna-be industrial bands that some have included here.

Just an incredible band and they deserve so much more recognition due to the fact that there music is abosolutly wonderful. If you havn't heard the album zerospace I feel sorry for you. Listen to it asap it will be one of the best musical experiences of your life.
