A form of music that combines Rock, Techno, Metal & various other music musical elements. Most bands use of samples from tv shows/movies/other media, dance beats/drum machines and misc sounds are modified. Most if it has some form of distortion. Very few Industrial bands are extremely or over produced.
Basically a very unique form of music that is enjoyable on cd and really enjoyable live.
Chemlab, Coil (abstract crazy sound crap), Foetus (not that good but unique), Front 242 (Only good live), KMFDM (hardest working Industrial band in the business), Marilyn Manson (used to be good/entertaining initially) Ministry (Good on CD but great live), NIN (most famous Industrial band that should wise up and tour with other Industrial bands instead of crappy rock bands), PIG (Almost Everything Raymond Watts works on is great), Pop Will Eat Itself, Schaft (another Raymond Watts project), Schwein (another Raymond Watts project), Type O Negative

Form of electronica; rock guitars mixed with synths. Varying rhythms. Most often dark and intimidating.
KMFDM and MDFMK (only the songs with Sascha K) is the best example of industrial, though there are many good ones. The songs Rabblerouser by MDFMK or Waste by KMFDM are key to understanding the sound.
