Industrial electronic music is a genre that fuses elements of industrial music and electronic music. The genre employs aggressive percussive beats and prominent samples. Its early works were produced by artists like Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and NON in the 1970s. The style was popularized in the 1980s with the help of bands like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Numb, and Pankow.
Industrial electronic music is a fusion genre that draws from industrial music and new wave synthesizer pop. Many artists associated with the formation of the genre were originally involved in the industrial music scene in some way (examples include Skinny Puppy members cEvin Key and Dwayne Goettel, who previously played with Download, Numb members Bill Leeb and Michael Balch, who both previously played for Skinny Puppy). Other artists had no previous affiliation with any type of industrial music but have since been labeled as such (examples include Haujobb, whose debut album “Solutions for a Small Planet” was released by German label Zoth Ommog in 1993).
What is Industrial Music?
Industrial music is a style of music that was developed in the late 1970s as an experimental and avant-garde movement. It mixed together elements of punk rock, noise music, new wave and early electronic music.
Early industrial music was often very harsh in nature because it used distorted guitars, mechanical sounding drum machine beats, power electronics and synthesizers set to very high volumes. The genre was also known for its dark lyrical themes.
The genre originated with bands such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, NON and SPK. These groups were heavily influenced by the philosophy of William S Burroughs and the writings of JG Ballard among others.
In the 1980s artists like Nine Inch Nails and Front 242 helped bring more exposure to industrial music through their use of less abrasive sounds than the original industrial artists had employed. This opened up a whole new audience for the genre which allowed it to grow in popularity.
