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.
