  • Industrial metal is a musical genre that draws from industrial dance music, thrash metal and hardcore punk, using repeating metal guitar riffs, sampling, synthesizer or sequencer lines, and distorted vocals. Founding industrial metal acts include Ministry, Godflesh, and KMFDM. Industrial metal is most well known in its various European permutations. Industrial metal groups have produced many acclaimed music videos. Industrial metal developed in the late 1980s, as industrial and heavy metal began to fuse into a common genre. In the early years of the 21st century, groups from the black metal scene began to incorporate elements of industrial music. Industrial metal did well in the early 1990s, particularly in North America, with the success of groups such as Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. Industrial metal reached its commercial peak in the latter half of the 1990, with groups such as Filter, Orgy, Rammstein, Stabbing Westward, Static-X and White Zombie. When industrial metal climbed the charts of the late 1990s, its sudden popularity was met with negative reactions from some of the early innovators of industrial music.
