I've recently been listening to this game's soundtrack. I really like the industrial vibe that it is. If there are any good industrial bands that are like it, please share!

Early KMFDM sounds like this. Their later stuff fluctuates between industrial dance and metal, but their first four albums are (to varying degrees; the earlier you go the more straight-up industrial they sound) what you're looking for.

One of the quintessential industrial bands is Skinny Puppy. They've been releasing music for as long as the above-mentioned KMFDM, although they were much more influential, and almost single-handedly made the modern concept of industrial (as opposed to the weird-as-hell original sound) semi-popular. Their early stuff is great, although Process and everything after is about as stale and cliched as industrial gets.

Last one I'll recommend right now is Electro Assassin. I don't know much about them, but their music is good.

I'd definitely second Skinny Puppy just on listening to a tiny bit of the first track. The drums immediately reminded me of their VIVIsectVI album:

It might not be the best entry point into the group's music in terms of accessibility, but it's the SP album that made a seriously major impression on me in high school, so I've got to recommend it anyway. They were an amazing unit in terms of production alone (the layers! Oh my god, the fucking LAYERS!). I don't know what went wrong. The Process is alright if you ask me, but forget about anything after that except the Puppy Gristle collab with Genesis P-Orridge, which was more of a free-form, experimental jam session than anything similar to what they were doing in the studio following The Process.
Disgrace to the corpse of Metal Archives!
