The Top Ten
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.
Best band everV 2 Comments
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
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
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.
Check a 90�'s project from mastermind of celldweller, the CIRCLE OF DUST
He is my favourite.His music is Electronic Rock that takes influence from EDM genres like Drum&Bass,Dubstep,Trance and Electronica as well as Rock/Metal genres like Industrial Metal,Nu Metal and Alternative Rock so I guess he counts because he has some Industrial metal influences.He is the best music artist of all time.He is really talented because he can play electric guitar,acoustic guitar,drums,keyboards,bass guitar and synthesizers.He is a multi-instrumentalist.He also has the most epic music ever and he puts more talent,effort and work into his songs than any other artist.Same thing with Blue Stahli who also makes similar music and is also good.Celldweller is the best.-DarkBoi-XV 1 Comment
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
Another pioneering band here. I couldn't ever get into them, but they influenced many bands to come. - ryanrimmel
KMFDM IN #19? what?!
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.
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
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.
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.
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
