...and everything in between.

Here's an intensive guide to 100 artists that inhabit the world of drones, ambients, noise and all the tiny variations within and between, both metal and beyond. One release per artist (aside from a few collaborations which I felt were of high quality and worthy of being mentioned). This is the world in which I am happiest, when structure is little more than a dot on the horizon of alien landscapes. This is where the mind drifts and consciousness and music become intertwined.

For those of you that have Spotify a large majority of these artists can be found on there. I've made two playlists incorporating them. The more drone and dark ambient oriented ones can be found HERE and the noisier ones HERE.

To this day I've still only heard God & Beast and Blood & Flame, but they're both pretty fantastic. I don't visit them nearly enough these days.

Well I myself am not a fan and haven't listened to any of their album for years. I just didn't you were into powerelectronics/Boyd NoiseRice.

Yeah I'm quite a big fan of power electronics and death industrial etc., though not so much noise these days. From what I recall he tends to stay on the interesting side of the spectrum for the most part.

Depending on the band, and on the level of racism in there, I like that genre more or less. My ex used to get mad at me for not liking the most NS of them (she was really into that shit), and never understood the concept of not being able to listen music made to spread the hate of your own - sandniggers like me threatening the "integrity" of Europe.
Rice's noise projects always pissed me off after a short while, I always stuck to the more neofolk/indus/PE side of that scene. Maybe I (we) should delve back into all that stuff that some time.

I thought it was always difficult to figure out which are genuinely NS or just using it as part of shock imagery tactics. I forget some people get really into the whole ideology aspect these days. Sigh.

But yeah, I used to be waaay more into it. It's harder to maintain an interest in it is because forums and such are less prominent, so keeping tabs or discussing it is more difficult.

Well that's why I still listened to many of those bands. I somehow managed to get enough info on each (= I asked the gf who's like a bible on that). If that were the case it would be hyporcritical to listen to 90% I listen to.

And there is like zero gigs and the fans are all depressed recluses.

Back when I used Last.fm a lot I noticed that the industrial / noise etc. crowd, compared to the bitching and whining of say the black metal lot, would try to portray themselves in a sort of non-sequitur pseudo intellectual manner. It was really annoying. I'm glad it's a more insular sub-grouping to be honest as having to deal with people like that on a regular basis would be a nuisance.

Haha okay, I guess you take me for a sensitive idiot now. I just don't like seeing the face of one those guys I buy music from protesting in a neo-nazi rally against the "invasion" of arabs.

They are. I actually had to do a sociology/marketing project on the fans, this is what resulted of it, you won't get much, but there's a strong ironic vibe and I repeated very much what you just said there (all done by hand):

Lel, I don't think you're sensitive at all. You have every right to feel that way. As a white male I'm not in any position to judge you for that =P

Ha, I can't make out a lot of that but what I can does seem to be in tandem with what I said. What an odd bunch.

Okay coolio .

Somewhere around the globe/another universe, another girl did just the same on metallers and is having a laugh at us with a PE version of you. You'd be so much more of a deadbeat/elitist if you were into that stuff.
