10 Industrial Rock

There are good bands in this genre but I actually think it's very overrated - M. Manson, Rammstein, NIN, and so on, are very well known. And people always add them to almost all metal lists I make, which annoys me because these aren't metal bands. It's Industrial Rock. Period. - Metal_Treasure

Also Rammstein isn't completely Industrial, just has some influences from the genre. - cjWriter1997

From NIN to Strapping Young Lad to Fear Factory. There's some great bands in this subgenre. - cjWriter1997

11 Doom Metal

Candlemass, Saint Vitus, Funeral, Type O Negative (also a bit gothic too) and of course Black Sabbath. - cjWriter1997
