I feel like there's not a lot of hip-hop influence in metal, and a lot of the bands with "hip-hop influence" just end up butchering both hip-hop and metal. But there are some albums that stand out that have an amazing blend of metal and hip-hop. Two of these albums being Songs of Love and Hate, and Us and Them, both by Godflesh. These albums both have a very organic blend of hip-hop and industrial metal. Anything like this would be really appreciated.

And another thing, I've noticed that I like dub influence in some metal bands as well. I've noticed a lot of dub influences in some more of Justin Broadrick's work. One of his newer albums, Posthuman, released under the moniker JK Flesh, has a huge dub and hip-hop influence. It's basically droning guitars over electronic effects and hip-hop/dub beats.

Another album that I listened to recently that has what I'm looking for is Vae Solis by Scorn. Very dubby, but still lots of aggressive industrial metal in that album.

Any recommendations would be appreciated, thanks!

Early Killing Joke is what you want here I think.
