The original post

Arguably my favourite area of black metal (along with psychedelic, an area certainly not exclusive to industrial, though much harder to define), the Industrial variety is something that has never made much headway, even in black metal circles. It tends to remain in disparate pools, rather than collating into any semblance of "scene" or "movement" or what have you. Personally I'd hate it if it became en vogue and started to (arguably) stagnate like the post-rock, blackgaze, atmo-black bands that are currently trending. Each entity is often unique and forced to define themselves by creative means. In terms of the fangled "atmosphere" that every blackened outfit purports to exude, industrial is by far the most appealing for me, doing away with trite evil and archaic visual themes in favour of an oppressive, mechanised terror, images of decay and post-apocalyptic dischord and themes of politics and philosophy.

And of course, gas masks.

Some favourites of the genre to follow in the first post....

As far as i am considered Aboyrm is the best black industrial band, they manage to have an industrial sound yet retain the black metal in their music. Later albums are more techno though, but i dont really dislike them that much.

I don't like many of the other one's though such as Dodsheimgard, Mysticum, Zyklon and ...and Oceans (Although i do like Havoc Unit which you forgot to list? =p) Dominion III is nice.

As far as Aborym goes some tracks of Gorgonea Prima do almost match the same thing I am looking for.





Let's see my full list is;

Aborym
Blut Aus Nord
Control Human Delete (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLQP-HZqXLI)
Dominion3
Gorgonea Prima (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBSqSxVh084) It's another one =p
Havoc Unit
Iperyt
Neo Inferno 262 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1dLg-KBOLY)
The Axis of Perdition
Tristwood (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9VlWqD2yYk)
Tyrant of Death (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X5Z8sbr_oM)
I know the last one is not black but i really like that particular album and it doesnt seem to be very well known.

I love Havoc Unit, but they're industrial death, not black. This is an industrial black metal thread

Well okay, i don't think it's pure death though.

Not pure, they do have black metal elements, but the structure and riffing to me are far more death metal than black.

Fear not, for I shall enlighten you. I think it's Mysticum. Not really really industrial I'd say, but got labeled so for incorporating a drum machine to classic kvltish BM.

This is also pretty decent, but only a tad bit industrial-like.

I wonder why Industrial bm bands often have a number and/or weird sequence of characters in their name.
Like "Neo Inferno 262", "(V.E.G.A)", "Øøpart", "T3chn0ph0b1a", "... And Oceans", "oOo", "V:28", "uRAn 0", "Terra::POLARIS" and such.

^Makes it look like binary code/machines/technologic stuff that resembles the imagery/themes of the bands ?? I don't know, but something like that.

The name of the band somehow reflects its genre/theme huh?
Yeah, probably because of that.
But damn, those sound weird.
But then again, so does sound industrial black metal =p

Not really that different from other genres. Think of some death metal bands as an example (Autopsy, Cannibal Corpse, or the most obvious of the bunch, Death).

with regards to this particular list, i think NI262 and oOo prove that less is better.

also, i understand oOo started officially going by Out Of Order before dissolving (losing the vocalist) and forming Helel.

Didn't know Out of Order became Helel.
Nice riffs on that one. Do they only have that EP?
