I'm grown kind of tired over the years by looking for proper Industrial Metal, meaning: no cyber, no gothic, no techno, no electronics and bullshit as such. Let's focus on pure, aggressive, rough and well made Industrial Metal.
Like, say, Dead World, Deflore, Godflesh, first Ministry offerings, first Pitchshifter album, Mysticum, Dødheimsgard, Skrew, Red Harvest, Thorns, The Axis of Perdition, Diabolicum, Dee N Dee, and even Kill ThenThrill and mid O.L.D. for added value.

So I've made a Spotify and Google Play Music playlist where I tried to avoid happy sounding "Industrial" bands.
If you're not using any of these services, think of these as a list of artists and albums that are doing justice to Industrial.

To get there I dug through "Industrial Metal" tag here, on Last FM and Rate your music.
This yielded a list of 2k+ albums to search for in Spotify and GPM catalogues. These catalogues are not complete of course, and entire worthwhile artists could go under my radar. This needs yo be fixed!
Thus I could miss a gem or ten from bands that managed to releasea cool demo or EP, or and album not represented in both streaming services.

So, please have a look at the playlist of choice and maybe you'll find something I've missed to suggest, because I cannot be the only one utterly disliking the trend of the "Industrial" tag being abused, - when your searches return happy dancing cybermorons instead of grim and rustbitten mechanics.

Playlist on Google is more consolidated and tight because of the size limit of playlist: 1k, and it being my main service. Thus GPM playlist could be the definitive one. + Google seems to have more proper Metal in general.

Spotify has 10k limit, thus playlist there has unfiltered intros/outros/fillers and weaker albums.

GPM (currently 903 local; 671 public tracks, filtered):

Spotify (currently 1469 public songs, unfiltered):

You should probably trawl through the old Industrial Metal help thread. It got un-stickeyed some time ago due to inactivity, so has got lost:

Thanks, Damballah, but Abigor won't make this list - I'm looking for something more pronounced than an undertone here and there. It should be Industrial in its core!

P.H.O.B.O.S

Fear Factory

Misery Loves Co.

Fetish 69

Skin Chamber

Grey Machine

Hi-Tech

Hypnosis

Nailbomb

I know, they are all completely different sounding bands but in a strange way, almost all have albums fitting the criteria you described in the OP.
But you will have to listen through the discographies and read reviews to home in on the gold.

Also, i could possibly list 10 times that number of bands but drugs and age have a toll, no ?

@Suleiman - now that's a good list! Have them already - someone added quite recently, balbulus!


@IamDBR - hmm, Stvore is good (edit: but not that Industrial) and Iron Son sounds fun (edit: just on paper, no Industrial to be found there)! Will check them out!
