Industrial Rock Music makes a lot of noise, as you would imagine, and needs to be played LOUD! It’s kind of an infusionĀ of electric guitars, bass and drums as is used in basic rock music, with electronic music and white noise blasts thrown in for good measure. It’s made to signify the sounds of industrial machinery, and in fact, many of the early pioneers in the 1980’s recreated sounds using tubes, pipes and industrial waste in general for their metal repercussion sounds.

Representative Industrial Rock Musicians

Industrial Rock Musicians named their groups with such things as Die My Darling, Suicide and Killing Joke, so that gives you some idea of the sorts of people we’re dealing with here.
