The Top Ten
The greatest Industrial metal band there has ever been! Songs like Du Hast, Deutschland, Amerika, Sonne, Mein Teil, Mein Herz Brennt and many more can be heard on repeat, even when you don't understand German! - hemendra_ahuja
They don't even sing in English, yet they are very popular in America. They are obviously doing something right. - ryanrimmel
Don't know how many bad days I've recovered by listening to their songs. They are one of the main influential reasons I am what I am now. They are part of me now and for last 15 years. Will love them forever.
I couldn't agree more they have been doing it right for decades.
NIN is amazing! They have some softer songs like Hurt and Everyday is Exactly the Same which leads people that they aren't metal at all. They have some pretty heavy songs like Wish, Head Like a Hole, and March of the Pigs which prove them to be the greatest Industrial Metal band of all time. - ryanrimmel
Not sure if they are metal but the best in here
This band is great
Probably the most well known artist here, mostly because of his odd appearance and over-the-top stage performances. - ryanrimmel
He's the best
There more death metal than industrial.
How can FF not be on a top industrial metal band list? Demanufacture may be the greatest Industrial Metal album if all time.
Pioneers of Industrial Metal and they are an amazing Industrial Thrash Metal band! I listen to a lot of Thrash and Ministry stands out more than any other Thrash band out there. Industrial Thrash doesn't usually work, but Ministry perfected it. - ryanrimmel
Just heard that their final album is gonna feature, Lil Wayne! Now isn't that lovely (sarcasm)?
Great band that played around with Nu-Metal elements. Worked pretty well if you ask me - ryanrimmel
They are so underrated
Try to listen it
These guys are amazing! Extreme Industrial Metal at it's finest - ryanrimmel
Brilliant band, super heavy and Devin is a wildly talented individual
Devin Townsend crushes Trent Reznors puny a** and eats it for breakfast
Rob Zombie is great. He is mostly a Heavy Alternative Metal/Groove Metal singer who has lots of Industrial influence in his music dating back to his days in White Zombie. - ryanrimmel
From circle of dust to celdweller Klayton has always had something unique to offer in each one of his songs. Truly an underappreciated genius
Check a 90's project from mastermind of celldweller, the CIRCLE OF DUST
The one-man band whose music is a masterpiece. Klayton did a good job and effort he put into his latest work, and I love his tracks as well. Above all, nothing is wrong with Celldweller. He should be higher on the list.
If Celldweller doesn't go higher on this list, I will cry. He is extremely good, he has obvious composition and performing supertalents along with his bandmates.
A major industrial metal band, both through its influence (It inspired many other bands of the scene and outer ones.) and æsthetics (Not only metal, but also with the hole range of industrial sounds and traits found here and everwyhere.).
KMFDM IN #19? what?!
Another pioneering band here. I couldn't ever get into them, but they influenced many bands to come. - ryanrimmel
What, why aren’t they higher? They have so many good songs!
Oomph! Mixed Industrial Metal with Dance music. I know that sounds like it doesn't make sense, but they treated it like one of those synchronized dance/singing groups. (Not sure what those are called) but it sounded pretty good, they have some cool songs. - ryanrimmel
Such an underrated band, must be at least in top 5.
Another pioneering Industrial Metal band here, they took influence from Industrial, Noise Rock, Ambient, and mixed it with Metal, particularly drawing influence from Black Sabbath. Their unique style has led people to categorize them as Experimental Metal. Godflesh also helped found Post-Metal. - ryanrimmel
Most Underrated Metal Band - Strobo
Best music artists ever.His music is basically like Dubstep meets Industrial Metal.-DarkBoi-X
These guys are awesome! - ryanrimmel
Some critic said it best; "a blending of eerie industrial rock with a pop-infused melodic chorus and a bit of hard-core head banging." Very influential - ryanrimmel
Simply the best!
Turmion Kätilöt is a great undustrial metal bands with different styles each album. They are truly underrated and deserve more praise. I think they're Wacken-Material.
Swedish band that mixes metal with influences from electronic music and techno.
My favourite industrial Metal Bandd, nearly all Songs are Awesome, very much Power live, awesome sound... just great (listen to the album coming home)
Formed by Peter Tagtgren of Hypocrisy.
Filter is an American rock band formed in 1993 in Cleveland, Ohio by singer Richard Patrick and guitarist/programmer Brian Liesegang. The band was formed after Patrick desired to start his own band after leaving Nine Inch Nails as their touring guitarist.
Formed in 2013, their last album 2019 "Metawar" might be arguably the industrial metal album of the year
They were so innovative and the dude doing the vocals makes it sound like death has risen the guitars are really heavy and amazing in every aspect of the imagination so give these guys a listen they may not be around anymore but they live in the music and in are souls you wont be dissapointed
An industrial metal side project formed by Rob Halford of Judas Priest.
Swedish Industrial metal band from Haparanda, Sweden. Formed in 2008 by Pär hulkoff, Jonas Kjellgren and Mattias lind. Their first album Det finns bara krig (There is only war) became a massive hit in swedish rock stations and have since then become a famous metal band in Sweden, touring with Sabaton on World war tour 2010. Their songs are mostly about anti globalism, anti establishment while they praise patriotism.
With a song like "Never Surrender" Combichrist achieves a great balance between techno-style music and metal.
