C'mon, if Rob Zombie is industrial, NIN definitely is.

Well I figured most have at least heard of Manson and Rob Zombie. But oh I would defiately throw NIN into the Industrial genre. Trent Reznor was one of the Industrial pioneers, as well as one of its most successful.

Test Dept. and Throbbing Gristle are two of the early ones.

In act, I think Throbbing Gristle coined the term 'industrial'.

And I now have the honor of being the first person on this forum to mention Throbbing Gristle.

Proof that most people don't mind what it is they're known for, so long as they're first! ;\)

Some early influences that I would personally credit the 'Industrial' movement to would be Sigue Sigue Sputnik, who are classified as 'Punk', but definately have heavy Industrial remnants in their music. As well as 'Pet Shop Boys', who are way more 'Pop' and not metal, but still kind of ushered in that style of recording in my opinion.

Awesome room. How large is it? How did you construct the bass traps?

Potatohead,

It's better to join the party late than never. Could you tell me what what type of receiver you are running?

Micah,

It's been a hot minute since you've ran with a sub woofer. Have you considered another brand to complete your system? I remember you had favorable things to say about the JL sub that your friend had.

I've considered quite a few options. I'm currently waiting on my slow season (February/March) to get here to build an infinite baffle system perhaps. That's my first choice.

Hey Micah, listen to any Fear Factory by any chance? If not and you're into industrial metal you need to check them out. My favorite albums of theirs are Digimortal, Archetype, and Demanufacture. I'd have to say definately check out Archetype first. It features an excellent tune, Bite The Hand That Bleeds, which was on one of the Saw movie soundtracks. Great stuff!

Also BWeasner I was keeping up with home theater thread and I must tell you that turned out amazing. The wall color, which is awesome, combined with your acoustic panels looks very professional. I may be stealing your design as soon as I get a permanent place. ;\)

Sorry Seeking, not trying to threadjack.

Hmmmm... I do remember hearing some 'Fear Factory' back in the early 90's, seemed more like Death Metal than Industrial. Or did they mutate towards Industrial, because they certainly had Industrial influences driving their sound.

Yes, you are exactly right Micah. Back then they were more death metal. They moved pretty far away from that with later albums becoming much more as I would say, "accessible", but still having that industrial touch.

Oops, I read back and I see you were talking more industrial, rather than industrial metal. My mistake. Oh well still worth a listen.
