    Sorry Seraphic but only 2 of the ones you listed i would put in the Industrial catagory. i think we have a ton of albums that could be listed for a top 10 but ones that i would have in their for different reasons would be:

    FLA - Millenium
    Skinny Puppy - Remission
    Suicide Commando - Comtamination
    Synascape - Synascape
    WinterKalte - Structures of Destruction
    Converter - Shock Front
    NIN - Pretty Hate Machine
    Marilyn Manson - Portrait of an American Family
    Wumpscut - Bunketor 7
    PAL - Matrix

    We could have a top 50 here and still not get them all in.

    Fook is on mine, too. Best Pigface ever.

    Ministry- Mind is a Terrible Thing
    NIN- Pretty Hate Machine
    Meat Beat Manifesto- 99%
    Suicide Commando- Mindstrip
    Hocico- Signos de Aberracion
    Nitzer Ebb- That Total Age
    Stromkern- Armageddon
    Pigface- Fook
    Skinny Puppy- Too Dark Park
    KMFDM- Nihil (or Angst, I can't decide)

    I'm sure I'd change my mind on a few (the Ministry, for example), but that's pretty much it.

    PS- Spin did an "essential industrial" thang in last month's issue. Anyone read it?

    Ok. I'll play but I have to admit that all these "industrial" top ten lists are making me feel quite old because most of the bands listed are of the new(er) generation of "industrial" which I just don't get. However, these are my personal "every "industrial" collection must have" list:

    [1] Einstürzende Neubauten - Drawings of Patient O.T.
    [2] Throbbing Gristle - Second Annual Report
    [3] SPK - Machine Age Voodoo
    [4] Monte Cazazza - Core
    [5] Hafler Trio - Four Ways Of Saying Five
    [6] Swans - Children of God
    [7] Test Dept. - Beating the Retreat
    [8] Clock DVA - Buried Dreams
    [9] The Klinik - Face to Face
    [0] Coil - Hellraiser Themes

    No particular order:

    Coil - Horse Rotorvator
    242 - Front By Front
    Neubauten - Halber Mensch
    Test Dept - Beating the Retreat
    Skinny Puppy - Too Dark Park
    Throbbing Gristle - 20 Jazz Funk Greats
    Nitzer Ebb - That Total Age
    Laibach - Opus Dei
    DAF - Alles Ist Gut
    Portion Control - The Great Divide

    It really is a shame with what happwned with Adi and DVA. They were such a great band and I dont think anything comes close to Buried Dreams. I had picked up the other members projects like Sector (Hated it) and Visions of Excess (Good but very minimal) but I dunno.. :/ What the hell is he doing now anyway?

    I completely forgot about SPK. Still think Zamia Lehmanni is their best work though. And Swans Greed. :/

    Yeah..so it's more than 10. And it's not the earliest "industrial" releases. Personally, the early bands like Throbbing Gristle and Dive really bore the snot out of me. I really tried to like them, really. After awhile I had to let go of trying to like what was supposed to be "important" in my genre. I started listening to industrial in 1987, starting with SP and 242. The song that hooked me was "Assimilate". I thought my mind was going to explode when I heard that one. The first 242 song I heard was, of all things, "Felines". LOL. It was so unlike anything I'd heard before, it made me curious. Before all this I was a massive Cure, Love and Rockets, Smiths, etc...fan. So it wasn't a huge transition.

    It may just be me but I think that Mentallo is a highly underrated band. I thought they were really genuine and powerful musically, until they split up and Gary Dassing did it on his own. I couldn't stand it after that. Also, the KIFOTH cd "Spectaclebreakers" is one I think is overlooked. Again, I find it to be a unique gem in the murky swamp of industrial music. The underproduced feel is actually very pleasing to me. Just like Bunker Tor 7. Sometimes the really slick, polished sound doesn't seem right in a musical world that is supposed to be gritty and raw. And lastly...as long as artists continue to create "industrial" music there is always going to be a plethora of ¤¤¤¤ we have to endure to get to the good stuff. And we are all going to be scathingly critical of it. I think it's just because we ¤¤¤¤ing love it. At least I do.

    Damn... I love the "classic" industrial. About the only "obscure" band on my list is Malaria, an all-woman band that I think shared a member with Neubauten, they are usually classified "wave/post-punk", but their 1983 album Emotion is definitely 100% in the Industrial territory. I think DAF, Neubauten and Malaria should be considered as equals based on their output 1981-84, it is sad the latter is forgotten.

    anyway, it is hard to pick just 10, but these are the ones I keep coming back to

    242 - Geography
    DAF - Alles ist Gut
    Cabaret Voltaire - Voice of America
    Neubauten - Drawings of Patient O.T.
    Coil - Horse Rotovator
    Nitzer Ebb - That Total Age
    Malaria - Emotion
    Chrome - Alien Soundtracks
    Laibach - Opus Dei
    SPK - Leichenschrei

    Well instead of thinking of my favorite 10 bands (and then coming up with my preferred album) I thought I'd list those bands that made a contribution to the scene and what was contributed by them.

    Front 242 - I have heard lots of arguments that Killing Joke really helped in the shaping of the industrial scene but I honestly don't hear their industrialish sound or think of them as a popular enough band to have influenced the masses. Front 242 with Headhunter has prolly brought more people to the industrial scene then the Cure has to goth. (And I'm not saying the Cure is goth, just that the Cure is considered a cross-over band that leads many, especially girls, into the scene)

    Skinny Puppy - At times too hard to dance to but their talent as musicians and their ability to put out quality releases for so many years helped many to actually think of industrial as a scene instead of just a few bands with a similiar sound.

    yelworC - Perhaps if the quality of their recordings was better they'd still be getting the play time in the clubs that they deserved. I consider yelworC to be the force that made the "dark-distorted-devilish" vocals so popular that we find today so appealing in bands like Aslan Faction or Sleepwalk. I assume if you're reading this thread you're well versed in Skinny Puppy and Front 242, but if you haven't heard yelworC you should at least sample them by bugging your local club's DJ. All their stuff is out of print right now.

    Wumpscut - Well lets face it, Rudy didn't do anything new or creative, he simply made Industrial dance floor friendly and popularized the term EBM (Electronic Body Music) even though it had been thrown around for years before he was the staple he is now.

    Covenant - Synthpop at it's finest. I'm not a big fan of synthpop but I do like Covenant and I think they've got a refined sound.

    Velvet Acid Christ - Pretty darn dark stuff and at times too many samples but he's got a unique sound that many flock to.

    VNV Nation - Very clean and upbeat sound as far as industrial goes. May very well be the breakthrough band that gets MTV play time in the future. Very simple music but at times very deep and no one does that sound better.


    I saw some awesome bands mentioned above like FLA and Swans but I'm not what they contributed to the scene's growth. Tactical Neural Implant will always have a special place in my heart but based on when it was released it didn't break any new ground. Bands like Nitzer Ebb and Neubauten I think are better described by placing them in other genres but I can definitely see the industrial quality in them.

    Anyways this is all just my opinion and I hope people respond with some new music bands that I should sample.

    Respectfully,

    Er, what other category *would* you put them in? Any bands that:

    a) smack pipes and trash cans, etc. to make music, and/or

    b) do mantra like chants over percussive beats with little to no melody

    seem pretty darn "industrial" to me.

    Just curious.

    Nitzer Ebb is so old that they are actually one of the few bands that should be called "alternative", kinda like "Curve", they didn't fit any category when they existed and were off making their own sound.
    Neubauten is intelligent techno, kinda how Haujobb was for the last few years before their very recent work which was EBM w/o a doubt.
