AlterNation - music magazine about Electro, Industrial, EBM, Gothic, Darkwave and more
Electro-industrial is a musical outgrowth of the ebm and post-industrial scene. It developed in the late 1980s and first half of the 1990s. Whereas EBM is straightforward in structure and clean production, electro-industrial became known for having a deep, layered and complex sound. This can be heard in many albums of this genre, such as Tactical Neural Implant by Front Line Assembly and Music for a Slaughtering Tribe by :wumpscut: After the EBM movement faded in the early 1990s, electro-industrial increasingly attained popularity in the international club scene. In contrast to the straight EBM style, electro-industrial groups use harsher beats and raspy, distorted, or digitized vocals. In contrast to industrial rock, electro-industrial groups use comparatively little guitar music (if any). Lyrical content was often strongly influenced by dystopian subject matter.
