    So it's like this: I find a lot of new stuff via satellite radio, but the things that I like to seriously bounce (and write) to tend to come from the goth-industrial clubs that I spend a lot of time in. Unfortunately, since about May my travels have taken me to awful, Goth-forsaken places that are hundreds of miles from the nearest noise-fix, and that's not likely to change for a while. Can anyone recommend some stompy stuff that's surfaced in the past few months, so I can refresh the playlists a little? It's not that I'm enjoying Grendel's "Harsh Generation" any less, but variety is the spice of life and all...

    This may be something of a stretch, but at the moment I'm in love with ZU. I've been listening to Carboniferous a lot, which has some strong electronic/industrial elements to it. Primarily, though, it's a lot of math/jazzy kind of stuff.
    Another favourite of mine which might be stretching the 'electronic' classification are BATTLES. Although most of what they do is recorded with live instruments, they do a lot of looping and mixing, and some of it sounds very electronic in the end. Again, it can be a bit mathy, but it's probably more danceable than Zu. Along similar lines to Battles are HOLY FUCK - live instruments (including a lot of toys and found objects) fed through mixing decks and loops.

    The most recent industrial albums I've enjoyed are the new Throbbing Gristle material and Somatic Responses latest. Hocico had something last year that was decent but only ever had a passing interest in the aggrotech/goth rave stuff. More into Skinny Puppy, TG, Front 242, Godflesh etc. As Krista said, Zu is also very cool but stretches the club-type stuff that I think you're asking for?

    I think I'll check out Zu, Battles and Holy Fuck anyway; they sound interesting, danceable or not. Many thanks!

    Add Fuck Buttons to your list of not-industrial-but-still-noisy-and-interesting music to check, then :).

    REALICIDE is some rough industrial hardcore that im digging a ton right now.

    I'll second the REALICIDE recommendation. I played with R. Inhuman once long ago and he's a great guy and REALICIDE keeps getting better and better.

    also a great live show

    Jackal and Hyde -

    Hardcore Electro! Check out the songs Beyond the void, Malfunction, I control your body, and Dark star.

    They are amazing live.

    I'll third the Realicide recommendation. They have a ton of releases but the best to start with is Resisting The Viral Self.

    Realicide Live @ my loft The vocals are a little high on the recording.

    My band AMERICANS UK has some pretty industrial songs in ROCKTRONIC and ELECTRIC CLOSET. ZOMBIES ATTACK!!! and I, APE-MAN veer there too. You can download I, APE-MAN for free from our website:, but ROCKTRONIC and ELECTRIC CLOSET are super industrial.

    The Ancient Methods releases are techno built on an Industrial framework. As an old school rivethead they get me stomping around.

    I can't remember who recommended me to this band, but they rock my cock off.
    Bought the whole album on iTunes, very impressed.

    glorious thread.

    SMB are well worth checking out --danceable, stompy stuff. And the song "Smash TV" samples the movie Falling Down.

    Someone else already mentioned HORSE the Band, but i'll second it.
    • CommentTimeOct 6th 2009
    @phill_sea: Sampling Falling Down has been done--Frontline Assembly has bits of that movie scattered all over the Millennium album. Sampling Johnny Dangerously--now that's genius.

    Also, a second thanks for all of the recommendations. So much new stuff to sample! It's a good thing.
