Hello,all.

I'm looking for some dark, futuristic industrial goth or metal. Anything that is 'cyberpunk' themed or about futuristic societies(post-apocalyptic, totalitarian, etc.) Could maybe be something like 'industrial nu-metal' if there is such a thing. Anything reminiscent of William Gibson's novels. Here's a pretty good example of what I'm looking for:

Like that only more cyberpunk themed lyrics.


Cheers.

I was listening to Breach The Void recently - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl_FCuryjKQ

It may not be exactly what you're looking for but do give it a try.

Fear Factory may be too obvious. The latest album "The Industrialist" is very good. Lyrical themes include "Technology, Anti-Religion, Hate, Society, Sci-Fi"

Herrschaft is a good example as well. Lyrical themes include "Post-Apocalypse, Human Beings, Chaos"

You might like Mars On Earth. They combine a gritty Industrial sound with black metal to create some truly out of this world.

maybe Sybreed? Their first album "Slave Design" is sth you could possibly enjoy. Later they went into a bit too polished sound, at least for me. However - here's a song to check out:

also Re:aktor play some very good industrial/groove metal. The lyrics have a near-future feel to them yet maybe not 100% cyberpunkish, anyway listen here:

Also Left Spine Down is great. They in fact call their style cyberpunk. It's a weird blend of punk, electronic, industrial, metal,... Give them a try:

an is Deathstars too obvious? Can't say anything about the lyrics but from what I catched on hearing it seems to be your music, industrial goth metal stuff... possibly you know them already

i just recommended this band to someone looking for futuristic metal, may even have been you, but i'm not sure. i'd call this band sci-fi death metal, with a sprinkling of industrial: Umbah

the song is called Dr. Geiger, and it sounds like the memoirs of a scientist gone mad. lyrically i think it fits the bill, and the music (though guitar-driven) sounds very futuristic. the vocal delivery is truly unique, lots of distortion but a has a cool, stylistic-narrative feel to it.

not really cyberpunk themes per se, but their live shows/attitude are amazing

thats a very cool and quite underground rec...i second...its actually a side project of some well known avant garde metallers


my recs are :

god is lsd
acumen nation
rabbit junk
cubanate
testify
shellshock
melt
die krupps
the amenta
red harvest

some are old and some are new but all are intersting in unique ways and all meet your requirements to seom extent

i would suggest to avoid the post fear factory type bands (sybreed) and go for the more original and inventive bands and artists

Ok, so I'm liking Sybreed and Left Spine Down the best, not too big on Fear Factory though. They just never quite nailed the atmosphere for me. I haven't listened to Mars On Earth yet, but I'll get to it. There's still something missing in the recs thus far, though, I'm not quite sure what it is though.
Thank you all for helping out.
