Welcome to the Underground! From subcultures to music, RottingInPeace is a directory of all things outside the mainstream.
Industrial music is a genre of electronic / experimental music that makes use of transgressive themes and is often associated with countercultural anguish and anger. Although ideologically associated with punk, 1 industrial music is generally more complex and diverse, both sonically and lyrically. The term was coined around the mid-1970s as a result of the founding of Industrial Records by the Yorkshire (England) band Throbbing Gristle and with the creation of the ironic slogan “industrial music for industrial people” (in Spanish, “industrial music for industrial people “).
